Gentle but highly strung, Janet must support her Afrikaner husband
in his new job as a plain-clothes policeman and specialist
interrogator. Hektor-Jan heads off to work on New Year's Day, aware
that he is unbearably close to a bloody drama about to unfold. As
Janet's world tightens and threatens to fracture, she must look to
her children and cling to the support of Alice, her black maid, and
Solomon, her ever-faithful gardener. All too conscious of her own
emotional fragility, Janet watches her mother slip into the folds
of `Old Timers' disease. And next door, the lurking, unfathomable
Doug is up to no good. As the crack in the swimming pool widens,
can Janet bridge the gaps that threaten them all? Written with
tenderness and disquieting power, Christopher Radmann exposes a
brutal centre that cannot hold - and reveals how in apartheid South
Africa, things must crack and fall apart.
