A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
When a private security agency run by and for women is asked by the South African Secret Service to protect two high-flung Chinese businessmen, the lid is rapidly blown off a whole nest of vipers. The activities of the Chinese spark a vicious gang war among the Untouchables, the Cape gang lords who have until now controlled the rewarding abalone poaching business the Chinese are now attempting to takeover with official connivance. Krista Bishop, who has long left the violence of the streets behind her, is now torn behind the request to fulfill her job for her employers and protect the vulnerable daughter of gang lord Titus Anders. With deliberate echoes of Shakespeare's bloody TITUS ANDRONICUS, this is a savage slice of South African thriller of the darkest hue and confirms Nicol as the sole heir to that particular, invidious kingdom. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
