An adroitly written thriller by a novelist who proves to have impeccable storytelling skills. It is undoubtedly a book which works both on the level of its intriguing concept and sheer narrative nous.--Barry Forshaw, author of 'Nordic Noir' and 'Euro Noir'
Clever. Crime fans looking for something different will be satisfied.
Zodiac delivers more than a narration of police investigation and serial killer chase. The reader can feel the challenges of a society with an apartheid-like system. The book flows fast as the author has built the suspense from the beginning of the story. A good read!
An enjoyable tale with dramatic payoffs. Readers will definitely enjoy the hesitant-but-growing working relationship between Burton and Childs and want to read more stories with them.
From the Back Cover
In a corrupt and volatile society where people are divided and defined by zodiac signs, status is cast at birth and binding for ever.
The line between a life of luxury and an existence of poverty can be determined by the stroke of midnight.
When a series of uniquely brutal murders targets victims from totally different signs, is it a misguided revolution or the work of a serial killer?
All eyes are on Detective Jerome Burton and Profiler Lindi Childs. They may disagree over whether the answers are written in the stars, but they are united by their belief that a grand plan is being executed . . .
