CLEWS takes you to Botswana, known for its diamonds, democracy, elephants, and low crime rate – until a June night in 1996, when gunshots announce the shocking murder of a well-to-do woman in her own home. The police are stumped. Then a wedding, a housemaid, and a sister-in-law reveal the secrets of Marriette Bosch.
