In this novel the reader meets up again with Aga and Jesse (Die neus) in a new adventure: They go to the Eastern Free State to try and solve the mystery of a missing child. But they have to reckon with a secret Amish-like kind of sect and its adherents, and also a shrewd woman heading a group of nuns. Happily they are again assisted by their protective and irrepressible friend Claude. This time he has in tow his new girlfriend, the white sangoma Stasi Soldatos, a fearless little dynamo. Wenkbrou is, like Die neus, a very entertaining novel – satirical, fantastical. A romp!
