Character Spotlight: Nina DeJong

Nina is Mitchell’s former high school love. She was his first. Their two-year relationship ended when Nina decided to move on. More than twenty years have passed and she is now picking up the pieces after a traumatic split with the man she married. We come to know him as that bastard. Nina (and her daughter) left the small country town and headed back to the city to be closer to her parents. She got a job transfer, bought a plot of land and then built a new home.

Nina DeJong.

  • Thirty-five.
  • Professional educator.
  • The ‘Other’ woman.
  • Former teenage girlfriend to Mitchell Felding.
  • Recently divorced.
  • Single mother.
  • Homebody. Recluse.
  • Believes in karma.

When it comes to love and dating, shyness has kept Nina single. Even her neighbours know little of the woman who moved into the home at the end of their street.

That bastard left Nina for their child’s nanny. That made Nina furious. She continues to make applications through the courts to access his money while using her daughter as leverage. She doesn’t need to as she has enough money of her own. She simply wants to bring him to his knees for what he did to her.

Nina and Mitchell broke up when they were just nineteen. As Nina walked away, she stopped, looked over her shoulder and said, “If we’re still alone ten years from now, why don’t we look each other up?”

The criteria were met. More than ten years have passed. Both are alone. Mitchell picked up the phone and dialled her number.

Five women’s bodies are discovered after the nights of thunderstorms. Their spouses are suspected of the crimes, but it becomes clear that someone else is responsible. There’s no blood and few clues. A storm photographer who specialises in taking pictures of lightning may be the only witness.
