Caryl Ferey’s Zulu has been a favorite of both the customers and booksellers at MysteryPeople since it arrived on our shelves in 2010. The dark police and political thriller will be on screens in France in December.
Forrest Whitaker plays Ali Neuman, the captain of a mostly white police squad in Capetown South Africa, who is of Zulu descent. Orlando Bloom plays a homicide detective alongside him. When the bodies of two white women show up with Zulu markings, he and his team are plunged into a violent nightmare involving different Western interests that exploit his country.
For those who wondered if the book would capture the book’s brutality, this Red Ban trailer leaves little doubt. Be warned, this is not for the faint of heart. Seriously, don’t watch this around kids.
