On the outskirts of shimmering Johannesburg, Detective Harry Mason and his crew are summoned to a grisly crime scene. By all accounts, discovering the mutilated corpse of a young child is a horrific and heart-wrenching task. But in the South African city, where some citizens still cling to the nation's mythological past, there is much more at stake. Mason and his team must discover whether this gruesome death is the work of a serial killer on the loose; or the work of a cult leader practicing a tribal muti killing - in which children are sacrificed for their body parts in order to elicit powerful 'medicine.' Discerning between the two is even more complicated than it seems, especially in a city rife with cultural and social tensions - and they're sure the killer will strike again.
