Product description

Product Description

Heinous crime. Brutal and barbaric perpetrators. Overworked police and forensics investigators. Vigilante justice replaces the institutions of law and order. As things fall apart, Detective 'Nights' Mashego investigates. But he carries his own dark burden...

About the Author

After working as an actor, director and teacher in theatre, film and television, Ian Patrick turned to an academic career, publishing scholarly essays in a range of international academic journals. He believes that his years as an actor, director and researcher play a modest part in his writing. 'My fiction is based to the best of my ability on research and field work. I have to believe every word my fictive characters say, every action they undertake, ' he says. Which explains why he has accompanied detectives to the front line, interviewed forensics investigators, and spent many hours scouring actual locations for his crime scenes: many of them based on actual events. 'I try to make my fiction plausible and authentic. This requires exhaustive work and detailed research. It takes me up to a year of full-time work to write an eighty thousand word crime thriller. In my view, although it is clearly desirable to arrive at one's destination by bringing a work to publication, it is the journey that is the really exciting and enjoyable part of writing. I can only hope that readers will also enjoy the journey of discovering my characters and their foibles, their actions and their experiences. I hope, too, that they will inform me about and forgive me for any lapses in my work or any errors of detail.'
