Review

“I’ve been a big fan of the Tennyson Hardwick series since CASANEGRA—and Ten is back and better than ever. FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE has something for everyone: the trademark sex and sizzle, and a nod to James Bond that makes this a high-octane thrill ride. Underwood, Due and Barnes don’t disappoint. If you love great fiction penned by superb writers and brilliant storytellers, get onboard!”

--Eric Jerome Dickey, New York Times bestselling author of Resurrecting Midnight and Dying for Revenge

“Bold, sexy, and engaging, FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE is an amazing novel penned by extremely talented storytellers! Tennyson Hardwick continues to be one of the most superb characters in contemporary literature.”

--Zane, New York Times bestselling author of TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART, executive producer and screenwriter, Cinemax Original Series "Zane's Sex Chronicles"

"Heart-stopping and crazy sexy, FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE will keep your pulse pounding through the long night. Tennyson Hardwick is a hero for the 21st Century. Easy Rawlins, say hello to James Bond!"

--Paul Levine, author of ILLEGAL

Suspenseful, exhilarating and sexy. From Cape Town with Love will leave you on the edge of your seat as once again Tennyson Hardwick has found himself in another mess. This page turner will have you holding your breathe as the intoxicating actor/bodyguard Ten deals with love, family, work and his own mortality.

If ever there was a book made for the big screen, this is it. The trio of authors do an excellent job helping us to visualize the beauty of South Africa, experience the roller coaster of emotions from the characters all while reminding us that everyone is vulnerable. Although reading Casanegra and In the Night of the Heat is not required, I strongly encourage doing so in order to fully appreciate the authors development of the characters.

It has been a pleasure taking these adventures with Tennyson Hardwick and I look forward to more.

It has been said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Someone clearly has never told Tennyson Hardwick this because from the moment he steps foot on the soil of South Africa -- majestic, beautiful and the place where the rich and famous pay mighty to get as close to God's beauty on earth as possible -- the hero we all love to love finds out just where his good intentions take him. He's there to win back the love of his life, the only woman who managed to tame the heart of the gigolo turned actor turned private detective. It's the latter that drove April away after she watched him solve two high-profile Hollywood murders while at the same time barely escaping with his own life.

So instead of just licking the wounds of his broken heart and falling into the first bed he could find, which is easy when you are a man like Ten, he heads to South Africa on a mission to get his girl. But soon into the trip, he finds himself guarding a Hollywood A-list actress when she visits an orphanage to adopt an African child.

That successful trip puts him on the speed dial of superstar Sofia Maitlin and garners him another gig serving as a bodyguard at her adopted daughter's birthday party. It was supposed to be an easy day, guarding a pampered American princess who was being celebrated by Hollywood royalty. But like Tennyson always finds out, good intentions lead to no where but hell.

Next comes a kidnapping that puts Ten right in the middle of a web of lies, espionage, danger and uncertainty that only he can escape. And, this time he has someone else who needs him more, a beautiful little girl's life hangs in the balance.

If you enjoyed the first Tennyson Hardwick novels, then this one is sure to be an additional treat! A continuation of the surperb story telling about this amazing yet slightly troubled man, and his ability to get pulled into the oddest situations. Starting in Capetown South Africa, the latest Tennyson adventure takes you from Africa to Hollywood, touching on plenty but missing nothing. I highly recommend this latest installment in the series, and I applaud Tananarive Due and Blair Underwood for creating this series (which I absolutely LOVE). Oh yes - the cover of the book is also worth its weight in GOLD (Blair Underwood is HOT!)

Enjoy!

I was a big fan of "Casanegra." I bought it based on the abstract while in the book store before the Kindle version was available and enjoyed it. I bought "In The Heat of the Night" the same way, but I was not as taken with it as "Casanegra."

Cape Town is ambitious in concept, but for some reason the flow of the book is not nearly as smooth and captivating as Casanegra. You typically look to find progress and growth in a character and this book seemed much more like a first effort than the third installment. I did appreciate where the story was trying to go, but it never picked up interest or steam for me in any aspect. It started slow and pretty much stayed there.

I will continue to support the series because I find Tennyson to be an entertaining protagonist, but unlike Casanegra, I can't recommend the book to people who aren't familiar with the character. If someone is familiar with the story-line I would give them a fair warning, but overall the book is flat and below the standard that I've come to expect from the series. Better luck on the next go-round...

To say the least, I was very disappointed in this installment of the Tennyson Hardwick series. In the previous two books, Tennyson's character though flawed, was admirable as he struggled through the "growing up" process. In this installment Tennyson regressed into a made for t.v. caricature of Jason Bourne. I understand the goal the authors always had for Ten (to be on the big screen), and wish them will with that endeavor. However, I hate the richness of Ten's character had to be sacrificed. Honestly, I prefer the original Tennyson Hardwick as opposed to the next James Bond wannabe. My support of the series will continue with hopes of seeing the depth in plot and character found in "Casanegra".

From Cape Town with Love, the third Tennyson Hardwick novel is the most suspenseful yet. I was all set to complain about the S&M episode (bondage is a real turn-off for me) but all of that fell by the wayside when it came down to the story, just as the previous two novels in the series got the sex out of the way fairly early in the book. In spite of "Ten's" flaws, lack of control, and attempts to bargain with God, he is the hero we want him to be. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know how Ten would solve the kidnapping.

I have previously likened Tennyson Hardwick to Walter Mosley's Ezekiel Rawlins, brought into the twenty-first century. Just as Mosley uses the racial conflict in LA in the 1950's and 60's as a backdrop for murder mystery, Underwood, Due, and Barnes use Hollywood of the Obama years, the election and recession as a backdrop. Mosley gave us "colorful" titles for his Easy Rawlins series. The Tennyson Hardwick series has titles that play on classic movies from Bogart, Poitier, and Bond.

There are points when the 2010 pop culture becomes a little distracting, but who knows, fifty years may prove that Paris Hilton, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jack Bauer are as timeless as Loretta Young and Clark Gable after all.

I know Tananarive Due's writing for her tender characterizations that make for people that I care about. Even minor characters and immortals who leave a trail of murder over centuries are the ones I look forward to reading more about. I know Steven Barnes only through my subscription to his daily inspirational emails for aspiring writers. They are full of references to eastern meditation, and to martial arts discipline and training. The martial arts sequences in Cape Town were spell-binding.
