Kings of the Water is the third novel from writer Mark Behr, published in November 2009

When Michiel Steyn returns to South Africa for his beloved mother's funeral, he has spent close to half his lifetime abroad. But neither Michiel nor those he left behind have truly come to terms with his terrible flight from the farm they called Paradise.

As Michiel submits himself to the rituals of mourning and remembrance on the land where he became a man, alll that has lain undisturbed for a decade and a half is brought to light. A father's fury and a brother's death, the loss of a child, the betrayal of love and the ugly memory of the dying days of apartheid all come between him and forgiveness. 

Michiel finds that he must confront not only his grief for his mother's passing but the painful truth of his own transgressions.
