This leads to an opportunity to explore the fate of his beloved daughter, so Pieter finds himself drawn back into the life of a detective - but dark secrets lurk behind every door...

    Rosy is My Relative was Gerald's first novel and it focuses on a 30-year-old man who receives an unexpected inheritance - #500 and an elephant called Rosy who has a thirst for liquor... Gerald decided there's only one thing to do - he's going to give the elephant to the circus.
