Product description


"Terrific...The city’s vibrant, exciting, dangerous atmosphere is superbly portrayed" (Marcel Berlins The Times)

"Johannesburg is fertile ground for a crime writer… Strong and vivid, City of Blood is the coming-of-age story of both Siphiwe and the slightly older Progress… There is plenty of action, but also, amid the chaos and carnage, a sense of redemption" (Guardian)

"Explosive and emotional, a journey to the dark side you won't forget" (Dreda Say Mitchell)

"Shows how a simple act of kindness can have catastrophic consequences... Villiers gives an urgent desperation to the mounting danger as her tale heads towards its grand-scale showdown" (Metro)

"MD. Villiers' remarkable debut novel is a coming-of-age story, fast-moving, thrilling and thought-provoking. Her plot is well-developed, her prose lively, occasionally lyrical but always clear and direct...[she] writes a mean action scene. Her characters too, are a joy" (CrimeTime)

Book Description

Longlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger: A story of survival, revenge and ultimately, redemption, City of Blood is a gripping coming of age story set against a searing backdrop of violence, heat and colour
