Publisher's Summary

This sequel to the action-packed Devil Dealing depicts the ongoing search by detectives Jeremy Ryder and Navi Pillay for the evil gangster Skhura Thabethe, dealer in stolen weapons, drugs and murder. The secondary plot shows the detectives uncovering a link between stolen weapons and the local trade in drugs. The two main plots unfold in strictly organized chronological sequence over 10 days, until a climactic ending when the two plot-lines coalesce in a spectacular confrontation between the detectives and the two main villains. Against a background of delicate emotional exchanges between victims of crime and the police, Gun Dealing, like its predecessor, explores the moral and ethical choices made by the detectives in their day-to-day confrontation with rampant and brutal crime in contemporary South Africa.

Sensational opening

If you could sum up Gun Dealing in three words, what would they be?

True to life

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gun Dealing?

The opening is sensational. I love it. Calm, happy, menacing. Then a shattering outbreak of violence. As anyone who knows this country will see, it's unfortunately just like real life. There's also an amazing dinner party where things happen that happen every night all over the country. Better not say what it is. Don't want to spoil it for others. Very exciting, though.

Have you listened to any of Ian Patrick’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No. Not yet. But have read the first book, and loved it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. It's exciting, but good to listen to in the car or later at night, in big bits.

Any additional comments?

Nice voice. Nice speech. Nice sound.

Very nice series

What made the experience of listening to Gun Dealing the most enjoyable?

It was nice to have all the characters and accents, and the reading is very clear and distinct. The recording was nice and resonant and strong

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gun Dealing?

There was such a sad moment when the parents of the murdered constable come to see the Captain. The Captain is such a nice guy.

Which character – as performed by Ian Patrick – was your favourite?

I liked Spikes. Before I heard his voice in the recording I liked Thebethe best of all. Well, I don't mean 'liked', you know? He is so evil. But what nice acting. Like a devil's voice.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I cried at the parents and grandmother seeing the Captain. And I laughed a lotg at the Afrikaans detectives. Such nice men.

Any additional comments?

I'm really enjoying the whole series.
