The English Cousin
The English CousinJan Mårtenson
It all starts at the bar in the ancient Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town. Antiques dealer Johan Kristin Homan is visiting South Africa with his girlfriend, one of the managers at the Swedish Security Service. But instead of visiting the wine regions, as they had planned, they are drawn into a tangle of corruption and politics.
A classic Homan adventure with unexpected twists and an equally unexpected conclusion. Cultural history and African wines are weaved through the story which also features the Thai lady Cléo de Merode
