In this fabulous follow-up to the internationally acclaimed The Lazarus Effect, newspaper reporter Vee Johnson reprieves her role as Cape Town's most feisty female investigator. Vee and her ever-faithful sidekick, Chl e Bishop, have been banished from City Chronicle's newsroom to review a tourist lodge in sleepy Oudtshoorn. But Vee and Chl e are barely checked in to their rooms when the first body is discovered... hanging from a tree, with Vee's purple silk scarf used as a noose. But is it suicide or strangulation? As Vee investigates the death, she is pulled into a bewildering world of conferences and corruption, dog-walking and drug addiction, break-ins and black economic empowerment. And all this whilst juggling the two men in her love life. The Score is a unique combination of sex, intrigue and subterfuge, set against the fading colours of the Rainbow Nation.
