“An impressive and well-executed debut novel, toeing the line between mystery, suspense, and sf. Readers who enjoy...Stieg Larsson or Louise Penny will find this title a chilling read.”—Library Journal
“Michelle Pretorius is a funny, surprising and fearless writer. The Monster’s Daughter
is at once a historical thriller that reckons seriously with South African politics, an imaginative piece of speculative fiction, and a stereotype-busting roller-coaster ride of a novel. I loved it.” —Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife
