I admit to a weakness for location in the books I read: it’s one of the reasons I’ve set my books in Kyrgyzstan.
Mike Nicol’s ‘Revenge Trilogy’ manages to perfectly evoke Cape Town in all its many moods; beautiful, dangerous, elegant and squalid.
With this as a dramatic backdrop, the trilogy features Mace Bishop and Pylon Buso, ex-freedom fighters, arms dealers, and spies, now providing protection for VIP’s and the well-to-do visiting Cape Town.
The books are not as well known as they deserve, but I recommend them to anyone who likes their crime fiction brutal, bloody and unremitting.
Enjoy, or as they say in Afrikaans, ‘Geniet!’
