Met you in front of Camberwell Green MacDonald’s promoting your book, on the 4th of September, didn’t know about you then read about you and I'm reading the book now, I have a better understanding of Brixton and its youths of today. Being a young person myself and living near Brixton I can relate to the realness of the book. I’m totally enjoying the book and it’s been such a real eye opener. All the gang cultures started way back, and this has given Brixton a very bad name. Brixton is quite a funky trendy place to be. Keep up the good work and hoping I run into you again with the new novel. Loving Little Jamaica…You are a very talented person and direct as well. Your novel is quite simple to read, very understandable language. Will have to let my little cousins know...Before you join a gang do read Little Jamaica, it will put you off... Thanks for the inspirations -- Clarisse Mofor

4 starters I didn’t get no sleep that night cos I couldn’t put the book down. It was amazing I reckon I also worked out who u were in the book. Seriously though your third book and they keep getting better u are so talented anyone can write about the streets but I haven’t come across someone who writes it so well with such a high level of intelligence. Hurry up with the next book!!!!!!!! -- Maxine Clarke

BLOOD DRIPS OUT OF Gunn’s side and down his leg. He stares at his attackers who are picking themselves up from the floor.
Malo runs to his car and pulls out a baseball bat.
Thomas clenches his knife as fear enters his eyes.
Malo swings the bat in the air. “Listen, I’m gonna mash you up, you little Yardies.”
Thomas does not reply. Leandra runs behind him.
Malo heads to the pair, planning to do the most damage a baseball bat can do.
Gunn grabs after him. “Nah, akhi, laowit.”
“Wot, are you sure, ak?”
“Yeah, man, just cool,” replies Gunn.
Malo points the bat at Thomas and Leandra. “Nah, dey must get deir heads bust, man.”
Gunn grips Malo’s arm and pulls him towards his car. “I said cool, put back da bat.”
Malo hesitates for a second as the late night traffic slows down to take a look at the commotion. Malo sucks his teeth and walks back to his car.
Fear leaves Thomas’ eyes.
Gunn makes direct eye contact with him. He stares him out for a moment or two, then points and says, “Remember I told you, yeah, da next time you see me, you better have your gun on you.”
Thomas does not reply as his heart pounds in his chest.
Gunn glances at Leandra, then, chin raised and fist clenched, he steps away from the spot where he could have died.
Will Thomas see Gunn again and will he have his gun on him ready to shoot or be shot?
Will Gunn suffer later complications from his wound?
Will Malo get the chance to take revenge on behalf of Gunn and burst open Thomas and Leandra’s heads?

I read this book in one day very deep story which outlines distortion within the mind, and the politics of policing within black communities. I enjoyed the way Von Mozar interwoved the historical, social and political reasons behind violence amongst youth within the black community. What captivated me the most was the knowledge that Von Mozar shares with the reader about the history of particular areas in south London e.g.'Tulse Hill' and who they belonged to. As an author he certainly teaches me something new and with reading Little Jamaica I felt as if I needed a paper and pen. But honestly Von Mozar you are a brilliant author and I cannot stop talking about your books to family and friends.

Having read previous titles from the author I didn't even need to read the blurb getting the book was a no brainer. Being given an insight into what Brixton was like back in the day was a real eye opener. Again another book that I devoured in a day! Looking forward to the next release.

Finished Little Jamaica this morn – I weren’t joking when I said I couldn’t put it down! It was such a good read and well researched. I really liked the little facts about the area thrown in here and there. If you want a throw back to old school Brixton or even if you just want to learn more about its history then you need to read this.

Read this cover to cover in two days, I was hooked, it was brilliant reading about places I knew and people I heard of and now understand even more about. Expertly written, very very very good read. Highly recommend read.
