It was a dark and stormy night. Bonnie van der Byl, a receptionist at the internationally renowned De Waal Theatrical Agency, is working late, when she discovers the body of her boss—the successful, but not-as-popular Mossel Bay businessman, Du Toit de Waal—with a dagger on his back. Bonnie calls the police and Constable Mickey Mentz is assigned to the case. Mentz finds himself thrown in a web of secrets and lies, as another victim is also found with a stab wound in the back. Bonnie decides to compete with the constable, as self-appointend amateur sleuth.
