Description

For fans of Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald, Dashiell Hammett and Robert B Parker

This gripping tale of intrigue and betrayal takes readers on a breakneck journey as Private Investigator Sol Nemo takes on South Africa’s underworld

When rich but troubled PI, Sol Nemo, learns of the kidnap of his friend’s wife, he instinctively responds to the call for help. Little does he realise that he is soon to become embroiled in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. At a botched exchange, Sol is shot and the kidnappers escape, leading to a dramatic game of cat and mouse in which a world of corruption and casual violence is gradually exposed to the light of day.

This intriguing tale of murder and revenge is set against the backdrop of South Africa’s breathtaking landscapes and the vibrant cities of Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. As the story unfolds, Sol is forced to wrestle with bouts of crippling anxiety, a cast of duplicitous characters, and an uncertain love life, while his mixed race heritage often leaves him straddling two different cultures and finding himself at home in neither.

When I heard about this story, it was the description and the title that interested me, particularly the use of the word "chanteuse". I imagined perhaps a story about an enigmatic woman. I thought the cover design was very striking, and I was pleased to be approved for a copy to review.

I expected a darker type of mystery novel, and I would describe this as noir. The writing was rich, atmospheric and elegant, and I quickly warmed to the main character. The story had an eerie feel that maintained my interest throughout. I would be curious to see if there are, or will be, any other books featuring this character.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for a free copy to review.
