The Griekwastad Murders by Jacques Steenkamp is the riveting account of what really happened on Naauwhoek farm on that fateful day, as told by the reporter who first broke the story. Just after dusk on Good Friday, 6 April 2012, the peace and quiet permeating the small Northern Cape hamlet of Griekwastad was disrupted when a young teenage boy sped into town in his father’s Isuzu bakkie and screeched to a halt in front of the nearly deserted police station.

Die Griekwastad Moorde deur Jacques Steenkamp is die aangrypende vertelling van wat werklik op die plaas Naauwhoek op daardie noodlottige dag gebeur het, soos vertel deur die verslaggewer wat eerste daaroor berig het. Die vrede en stilte wat die Noord-Kaapse dorpie Griekwastad omvou het, is kort ná skemer op Goeie Vrydag, 6 April 2012, versteur toe ’n jong tienerseun in sy pa se Isuzu-bakkie die dorp ingejaag gekom het en met skreeuende remme voor die plaaslike en byna verlate polisiestasie tot stilstand gekom het.
