Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The pace is fast, the solution ingenious. Above all, however, is the author’s extraordinary naturalistic style. He is that rarity—a sensitive writer who can carry his point without forcing.” New York Times Book Review
“A revealing picture of the hate and sickness of the apartheid society of South Africa.” Washington Post
“So artfully conceived as to engender cheers…A memorable mystery.” Los Angeles Times
“This well-plotted, well-written murder mystery is exceptional…sometimes grim, sometimes sourly comic, always shocking.” The Atlantic
“Crossley keeps listeners abreast of the gripping and psychologically complex plot with helpful shadings of accent and character, and realistic pacing of collegial banter, narrative description, and the many scenes of danger.” AudioFile

Author Bio: James McClure

James McClure (1939–2006) was a noted journalist and author. He was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but lived in England for well over the last half his life. He is best remembered as the author of the Kramer and Zondi police procedural series, which contained a not-so-subtle message to those overseas about the inadequacies of a society split so radically along racial lines.
