You and particularly yours were eligible, maybe not this time but next time, no matter how much care you took to avoid sordid situations, no matter how often you slept with a cop. Just to know there was a homicidal pervert at large was to find yourself perversely cursing the fact you had four fine, attractive kids. Attractive! Man, everything sweet turned bitter when there was an animal in the shadows. An oncoming vehicle glared before dipping its headlights, reminding Kramer of the way expert witnesses always looked down suddenly whenever he said animal

unusually Praise for James McClure: More than a good mystery story. a revealing picture of the hate and sickness of the apartheid society of South Africa. The Caterpillar Cop is just as stark, just as earthy, just as lusty. The pace is fast, the solution ingenious. unusually enough-is just as good, if not better, than its predecessor. Handsome twelve-year-old Boetie was strangled and stabbed. Was he the victim of a pedophile?

Reviews: 4
I was introduced to McClure's novels in the 1970s, and found the writing powerful on several levels. First, it is a good police procedure novel, second, the characters are well developed. But, the subtle power of the book's casual descriptions of life in South Africa for blacks and their white "masters" makes it worth reading by itself.
The 4th of James McClure's books I am reading. Hooked me in. I don't understand the SA slang so I am looking it up as I go.
After Reading and totally enjoying The Song Dog, written in 1991 and found in a thrift store, I ordered all McClure's other books in this series going back to 1971. I just read the first one to come in the mail, Caterpillar Cop, and it was just okay. Written in 1972, Caterpillar Cop is about a young boy who is intent on solving a murder. It gets confusing at times, largely due to South African colloquialisms (I'm from NY) but also due to some confusing writing. The Song Dog was GREAT, very atmospheric, and I'm hoping to like something else by McClure as much.
This Kramer and Zondi novel, one of eight in the series written before the author's death in 2006, was first published in Great Britain in 1972. It is now reprinted for our enjoyment. Unlike "The Steam Pig," which focused on the horrors of apartheid, "Caterpillar" centers its attention on the repressive sexual attitudes of the South African regime of that time.

The case begins when a 12-year-old boy is found strangled and with multiple stab wounds, with the area around his genitals virtually destroyed. Initially it is believed to be an act by a pedophile. It was known that the boy was spying on someone. As Lt. Kramer and his sidekick, Bantu Sgt. Zondi, investigate, a link develops to what is termed an accidental death of a visiting American teenager.

This novel is more akin to a traditional murder mystery, as the police procedural progresses, as opposed to the initial entry in the series, "The Steam Pig." A new twist to complement the by-play between Kramer and Zondi is the introduction of a young would-be detective, Pembroke, as a foil for the Boer detective. McClure's ability to offset grim details with amusing interplay between the characters is truly remarkable, as is the smoothness with which he develops the plot, especially with the twist at the end.
