The Quarry

Damon Galgut

On a lonely stretch of road, a nameless man commits a murder. The victim is a religious minister on his way to take up a post in a nearby town. The murderer decides to steal the dead man’s identity only to discover that one of his first duties is to bury a body that has just been found close to a disused quarry…Although there is evidence linking others to the crime, the head of the local police, the Captain, knows the new minister is guilty. The Captain decides to bide his time–watching, listening, slowly circling his prey. With the town’s church ablaze, the Captain is compelled to pursue the murderer across the veld, as his exhausted quarry struggles to make good his escape.
