Great!

This book has a cast of British, American and South African characters, all faithfully depicted with their national traits and very believable. They get caught up in dirty South African political shenanigans from various aspects. The novel does not judge any side in the struggles of that country but reflects its complexities and contradictions very well in as far as a thriller can.

These political machinations find narrative parallel in both the twisting personal lives of the book's characters and the financial posturing of the business storyline. I liked these juxtapositions very much and again, the author leaves us to judge the morality for ourselves.

The ending was a little weaker than I had hoped, feeling somewhat rushed and sketchy. It also ties things up in a way that life never really does which seemed at odds with the approach in the rest of the story. But don?t let these comments put you off ? that?s just my impression.

With a narrator such as Sean Barrat, a book like this comes alive. He never fails to do his homework and he pronounces the South African names perfectly and gives them just the right accent when those characters speak.
