Set in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, this book has an interesting, feisty heroine, Tabisa Tswane, a smart police officer who is chasing two weird criminals, who speak in Donald Duck Voices and wear alien masks.

Tabisa is a smart, savvy detective who has rebelled against the system and been cast out of the valley. Now, fourteen years later, she has to come to terms with her rural roots, and solves a dark secret in the process. ‘Now I See You’ is based on a true story.

When Sir Oliver Brockman, wealthy banker and Knight of the Realm, dies under suspicious circumstances, each of the seven women in his life thinks she is responsible. They all had a reason to kill him...they had all planned to kill him...so who could it be? Katarina Brockman, Oliver's devoted mother, or Margaret Westley, Oliver's first love, now a doctor in Africa. Then there's Rosemary Hawkley-Moore, Oliver's first wife and mother of his only child. Or Charlie, the neglected daughter. Perhaps it could be Courtney Blake, Oliver's second trophy wife. Or could it be Yvette de Longchamps, the beautiful French investigative journalist, or Anne Porterman, Oliver's long-time loyal secretary? The Man with the Blue Eyes is an intriguing novel far more about the women who love the man than the man himself. These seven women show us the pain, humour, loss and love that comes with devotion. From the streets of fashionable London and Paris to the daunting grandeur of darkest Africa, there is no escape for Sir Oliver Brockman.
