The unfaithful husband's antipathy toward his wife, who he sees as pathetic and childish, manifests in contemplation of murder - with, of course, a twist at the end. In the camp at Thaba were a restaurant and a shop, round huts with thatched roofs and wooden chalets with porches.

You had no sense then, in that instant, of which of the objects was valuable and mattered and which was not and didn't. The horrors that follow are achieved with supreme skill, suspense and tension heightened to the final terrifying climax. It was a hot day of merciless sunshine, the sky blue and perfectly dear.
