Kurzbeschreibung

A woman lies dead in an abandoned shed, but skeletons have lain undisturbed for centuries here at Gallows Hill, where Cape Town's gibbets once stood.

Police profiler Dr Clare Hart soon discovers that a deadly, more recent secret lies hidden among those long-buried bones. Who was the woman in the green silk dress? Who wanted her dead? Who buried her body among these ancient graves?

I really enjoyed this book. Saddened me to go back in the bad history of South Africa, but well worth a read.

This is one of a crime fiction series that is very popular in South Africa today starring profiler Clare Hart--strong sense of being haunted by past, also gives insight into contemporary South Africa.

I liked the way a typical South African environment was used to create the plot although at times a bit overdone. The red herrings were predictable and the victim's child character unnecessarily overdone.
5.0 von 5 Sternen My favorite Clare Hart book! 10. Juli 2014

Set against the tumultuous back drop of today's South Africa, author Margie Orford once more weaves a tangled web of a story that calls for her character Dr. Clare Hart to find a killer. This time the killer will be someone who has gotten away with a crime for over 20 years. During the excavation of a building site under questionable circumstances, a mass grave of old bones is uncovered in a spot where slaves and prisoners were once hung. . . and allowed to hang for days until they dropped off their gallows. However, the old bones which are considered archeological specimens are not the ones that require Dr. Hart's expertise. In the course of the investigation, the bones of a woman who has been dead for a much shorter period of time are discovered and Clare is presented with the case as if it was a gift from Captain Riedwaan Faizal who also happens to be her lover. Clare's investigation brings her into the world of art, down and dirty big business, and the South African political arena with its shady politicians and corrupt policemen who are on the take and the make. Despite obstacles at every turn, Clare is determined to "get these bones to talk to us, tell us who she was." Gallows Hill has all the elements of a great thriller: mystery, suspense, heart stopping fear, devastating loss and bright lights extinguished too soon. There are bad guys, worse guys and sleazy characters of both sexes. Margie Orford's depiction of today's South African political, social, and cultural climate is intriguing to me in this post-apartheid era. She does a masterful job of showing the crippling poverty and the inequalities affecting the lives of women and children. Despite the complex and compelling story lines which characterize all the Clare Hart books, it is the author's portrayal of the lady herself and her prickly relationship with the enigmatic Riedwaan that continue to draw me into these books. Margie Orford never fails to impress me with her ability to establish the unique connection between Clare and Riedwaan with just a few words. They have quickly become one of my favorite fictional couples. Despite the fact that Gallows Hill opens up with an intimate scene, this aspect of their relationship is most often written with a subtlety which leaves the reader's imagination to furnish the details. I've read all the Clare Hart books and I have to say this is one of my favorites. Gallows Hill can certainly be read as a standalone, but you will be cheating yourself if you don't take the opportunity to get to know the characters by reading all the books.

Gripping read, good characters and completely captures the feel of Cape Town. Up there with Deon Meyer as top SA crime fiction.
