Very well plotted and thoughtful book. It feels real.

A thriller that never slows down, with complex characters and poetic writing. Definitely 5 stars.

…Beautiful country this. Colourful. That is the difference, the major difference between this landscape and the Karoo. More colour, as if God’s palette was increasingly used up on the way south. Here the green was greener, the ridges browner, the grass more yellow, the sky more blue....
Colour had messed up this land. The difference in colour....
The road grew straight again, a black ribbon stretching out ahead, grass veld and thorn bush. Cumulus clouds in line, a war host marching across the heavens. This was the face of Africa. Unmistakeable.
