Dynamite Thriller of Hitmen & Sinners,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Cops & Robbers (Paperback)
Powerful novel about the underside of life in South Africa starting in 1977 when the so-called “Icing Units” of politically sanctioned hit squads were still operating both inside the country and around the world. The diverse cast of characters is brilliantly rolled out and each of them seems to have something to hide. The story here is loosely based on real events that most everyone, especially South Africa’s current political higher-ups, would like to see forgotten and deeply buried. It’s hard to imagine that this novel is going to make Nicol popular in his home country of South Africa. This is the author’s fifth novel and his writing style just gets better and better. Reminds me of Tom Wolfe. Seriously, it’s that good.
