    Story
    "Outstanding Noir fiction"

    I was kind of thrown off by the 2 1/2 star review- but bought this because I had read one of his other stories. This is Guy Fiction. Violent, fast-paced, very strong story line and pretty decent character development. Plus, I love the narrator (who did Pillars of the Earth).
    This story is not very politically correct- the majority of the characters in South Africa are portrayed as opportunistic, rough/violent/criminal characters, but its a great story and I highly recommend it.
