O Acordo Secreto do Colonialismo recovery of lost art They discover that she came to South Africa searching for a painting The Woman in the Blue Cloak This was aare painting by Rembrandt s most gifted student Carel Fabritius He died in 1654 when an explosion destroyed most of his art and took his life A uarter of the city of Delft was destroyed and very few of his paintings emain The Goldfinch of the best selling book and the movie that followed was one of his few existing paintings that survived the damage from the explosion The Woman in the Blue Cloak disappeared from Delft in 1654 according to the story Alicia traced the painting through historic documents to a family in SouthAfrica in the 1700s The manner of her death and the fate of the painting leads Benny and Cupido to a dapper etired history professor a sleazy ex cop who now works as a Private Investigator and a farmhouse in the countryside The murderer and his motive are surprising I am hoping there will soon be another book in this enjoyable and informative series English below Dit is niet mijn soort boek Ik erger mij enorm aan de met Engels doorspekte dialogen Aan de andere kant is het misschien dat zo in Zuid Afrika wordt gesproken maar dat weet ik niet Er zit geen spanning in het verhaal en de plot voelt wat gekunsteld en voorspelbaar Het boekje is maar 90 bladzijden en toch zitten er 3 verhaallijnen in Ik denk dat dat teveel is om het hoofdverhaal beter uit te kunnen werken Het belangrijkste verhaal is om het hoofdverhaal beter uit te kunnen werken Het belangrijkste verhaal over een onbekend werk van Fabritius Daarnaast zit er een stukje over een van de hoofdpersonen die wil gaan trouwen Dat verhaal voegt weinig toe het zorgt er niet voor dat de karakters van de hoofdpersonen meer diepgang krijgen Ik merk zelfs dat ik mij een beetje erger aan het geneuzel over trouwringen en hoe geweldig zijn beeldschone vrouw wel niet is De hoofdstukken worden ook afgewisseld met een ontzettend onduidelijk verhaal over iemand die achtervolgt wordt Waarschijnlijk ligt het aan mij maar ik begreep helemaal niets van die stukjes Het is mij volstrekt onduidelijk waar die stukjes toe dienen Kennelijk spelen die stukjes zich in de 16e eeuw maar dat blijkt nergens uit Ik ealiseer mij dat het misschien niet eerlijk is om een boekje van 90 bladzijden een negatieve eview te geven maar voor mijn gevoel had er meer in gezeten Dit lijkt op een schets voor een langer verhaalThis is not my kind of book In the Dutch translation the dialogues are filled with english slang wich annoys me endlessly But maybe this is common for dialogue in South Africa The story lacks any tensionbuilding and the Plot Feels Artificial And Predictable feels artificial and predictable d only a 90 page story but there still are 3 different storylines I think that s to much for a short story like this It Before Copernicus results in all of the three storylines being no than sketches of what they could have been Firstly there s the main story the search for an unknown work of art by the Dutch painter Fabritius Then there s the story about one of the main characters who wants to get married That part does not add anything to the characters I find it annoys me mostly theanting about weddingrings and how absolutely gorgeous and wonderful the bride to be is Lastly there are some chapters about someone being chased It s completely unclear to me what this about Only when i finished i thought isort of ealised what they were about It seems they are situated in the 16th. Early on a May morning in the depth of South Africa's winter a woman's naked body washed in bleach is discovered on a stone wall beside the N2 highway at the top of Sir Lowry's Pass some thirty five miles from Cape Town The local investigation stalls so the case is eferred to Captain Benny Griessel and his colorful partner Vaughn Cupido of.

Ssel and his partner Vaughn Cupido are called in to the scene of the crime They are known as the Hawks within the SAPS and have plenty of notches on their crime solving belts But this one is going to

the air as they approachAs the investigation moves on the stakes areaised higher The body is that of an American woman who worked for many years with Restore Only the Hunted Run recovering lost art This could be uite the international fiasco in the making Time is of the essence The Woman in the Blue Cloak is my introduction to Deon Meyer and his two saavy detectives hitting the streets in South Africa The banter between the two is delightful with humorous darts hitting their target at just theight moments Meyer allows you to view their weaknesses and touch the scars of their experiential backgrounds There s a lot of worn leather on the bottom of their shoesDeon Meyer weaves an additional thread through this storyline involving a mysterious work by Carel Fabritius a pupil of Rembrandt Pages turn swiftly as we Edgar Cayce's Hidden History of Jesus readers are given a glimpse into the art worldevolving from today into the long lost corridors of the past My interest has been piued as I search out previous books in the Benny Griessel Series set in Cape Town Perhaps you will tooI Women and Disability: The Double Handicap received a copy of The Woman in the Blue Cloak through NetGalley for an honesteview My thanks to Atlantic Monthly Press and Deon Meyer for the opportunity This is fully a 35 star for my Hostile and Malignant Prejudice: Psychoanalytic Approaches read but I will notound it up because the first 30 to 40 pages were confusing and IMHO just frustrating as a The Devil's Playground: A Century of Pleasure and Profit in Times Square reader to decipher That it is part of a series is only part of the problem in this type of introduction to the context of the case But if I hadead others of this series before I may have been less distracted by numerous factors of new characters exchanges and the general asides of organizations collouialisms etc of South Africa Not having all those duck knowledge points in a The Culture Chamber row it makes the intro of numerous levels and primes in all this just awkward But I did persist And was fully glad that I did Because the next novella length piece was a full 4 star Especially when you got into the precise minutia of all the criteria that brought our victim to South Africa and the Woman in Blue painting itself Those were top notchGood plot for the searching of the providence and existence of this painting And the fractional history portions WERE distracting but there were few of them and so they did give you historicaleality without totally breaking the tension of the case I did find the last 5 pages of explanation a bit far fetched but overall still an intriguing case story outcome And I found the South African law Whispering Coves rather leaning toward guilty until proven innocent in methods but certainly a window Finally I must admit I had trouble understanding this nomenclature for this tiny book than in some pretentious tomes of 500 erudite phrasings What is a ou As in he was aeal ou And Bees: An Up-Close Look at Pollinators Around the World rusks Iead that they can be packed or dunked Then finally I determine that they are some kind of formed muesli mix solidified Myriads of South African words phrases titles calling tribal characters uncle etc are found in this writing I love it What I don t found in this writing I love it What I don t is the edundant words Skinny is one but there are others too The same word used too often And the South African sense of humor word used too often And the South African sense of humor uirky slanted too A different flavor Like the English within Monty Python forms etc something uite owned I have to be the in ight mood truly attend wording inflection nuance to get it as it varies greatly from my own native humor forms Of this I m not completely sure but 90% convinced that it holds huge cultural onus It s a play of different cultural manners eyes assorted thrown together holding no go lines that some things considered joke worthy giggly in some place and ethnic senses are NOT in others And where a word play a Self-Esteem for a Lifetime rhyme a slapstick motion all can beead heard differently I m going to ead of these Deon Meyer Not for the snarky Hawks folks either The characters are not my most likable at all but they are teaching me a different English language ambiance definition of termsFinally I have to add A former Inn BB owner we visited MI there for years I knew and grew to know as a friend was from South Africa He told me at least 20 stories of his life there before he emigrated that were awesome He called it the Garden of Eden and I believed him when he would describe all the Paths Of His Childhood Youth And Beach of his childhood youth and beach legacies The natural bounty and beauty sound incredible I wish there were fiction books set on that stage A naked woman is found alongside a highway outside of Cape Town with her body having been washed in bleach to destroy DNA evidence Benny Griessel of the prestigious Hawks investigative unit is asked to assist The dead woman turns out to be Alicia Lewis an art expert who is trying to find a are painting by Carel Fabritius Rembrandt s finest student not seen since it disappeared from Delft in 1654 Benny and his partner find the two men she had contacted prior to her sudden trip to South Africa one sleazy and one notI was disappointed by this novella because there was little character development other than Benny s worries over the cost and provenance of an engagement in. Student not seen since it disappeared from Delft in 1654 But how Lewis died why and at whose hand shocks even the two veteran detectives The Woman in the Blue Cloak is a compact jewel of a thriller filled with Deon Meyer's earthy dialogue clever plotting and the memorable characters that have peopled all of Deon Meyer's award winning novel. ,
