My first encounter with tough PI, Jade de Jongh. She needs to be tough because she works in Joburg, South Africa’s biggest city that has its fair share of hardened, greedy criminals. The story revolves around SA’s nuclear industry and there’s explosive action (literally) , plus plenty of other murders and mayhem besides.
The characters are authentically South African, the story line is topical and credible, the atmosphere is gritty and exciting. I don’t care overly for thrillers, but this one had me turning the pages at a rapid rate until I reached the finale.
I will definitely be hunting for another thriller in Jassy Mackienzies series featuring Jade de Jongh.
