The first adventure of the one-legged Private Investigator Rae Valentine, the strength of DIVINE JUSTICE lies in its well-constructed plot and vivid descriptions. From the opening scene of a devastating fire on Table Mountain to the final action where Rae must fight for her life and her sanity, this hard-boiled, edgy story thrums along with gritty details of the seamier side of life in Cape Town.
In Rae Valentine, Hichens gives us a spirited female character, as vulnerable as she is tough and intelligent. She doesn't get much help from her unreliable partners, who must struggle with their own demons while Rae struggles with villains who are dangerous fanatics and provide a taut edge of uncertainty throughout the book. When people are that crazy and hate-filled, anything can happen. This constant sense of imminent loss of control by any of the Boyz, or the Pastor (who has a fetish for amputees), keeps the tension high right until the end.
Throughout the story, Hichens explores the themes of trust (or lack of it), religious fundamentalism and survival. When desperately fighting for her life, Rae must find the mental muscle to do anything it takes to survive...
If you like noir crime writing where the world is not a nice place, colourful characters run amok, a city burns with both flames and rage, a few mad capers take place in a dark underbelly of South Africa and its neighbour Namibia, I guarantee DIVINE JUSTICE will keep you turning the pages as fast as you can.
Religious fundamentalists will do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Hichens introduces us to one in the opening pages of Divine Justice. He's climbing Table Mountain. And it's burning. Anyone familiar with the dry heat of a Cape Town summer knows about fire in the fynbos - but it looks different to a crazed evangelist. The flames are red and gold. Orange and crimson.To him, they spell apocalypse.There's a puppet master pulling the strings of the evangelist and his sect - but he's not looking for salvation. He's after the money...
Diamonds are the key in the mystery unravelled in a page-turner where surprise revelations keep coming. They're worth a fortune.Read more ›
