From the Author

Plain Dealing, the third book in The Ryder Quartet, builds on front-line research in the war against crime in Durban, South Africa. With assistance and guidance from detectives, forensics experts, and victims of crime, the author attempts to ensure meticulous attention to detail. He has explored the precise locations in which scenes are set, and has captured details of actual crimes before adapting them for his purposes into fast-paced fiction thrillers. Throughout the quartet of novels his intention has been to create exciting crime stories steeped in authenticity of action, place and time. At the same time, he has endeavoured to capture the essence of some current debates on law, justice, crime and moral responsibility.
