Murderous (Bargain Read)

A massacre in a church. A country on the brink of civil war. And the biggest gold heist in living memory.

Ben Gabriel was once a soldier in the elite British Special Forces, but that was before his dishonourable discharge and his subsequent descent into a life of crime.

But Gabriel might just be the only person who can discover the truth behind the horrific church massacre that has devastated an Afrikaans farming community. The message that this is “only the beginning” sparks the fear of genocide.

Were the killings part of a ‘white genocide’?

Or was this murder?

Gabriel needs to discover the truth before the country erupts into civil war.¬¬ But one of the country’s most powerful men is convinced that Gabriel was behind the biggest gold heist in living memory and is determined to hunt him down.

Can Gabriel do it? Can he evade the wealthy and save the country?

Murderous is the second book in the Gabriel series of thrillers set in the turbulent political landscape of South Africa.

If you like the works of John le Carre, Len Deighton and Lee Child, stories of the underdog who questions authority, and the daring capers of those who break the law to find the truth, then you’ll love this breathtakingly fresh thriller from David Hickson.

“Murderous” is that rare bird, scarce in Africa as well as elsewhere, that is to say, it is a sequel that is better than the first in the series – and the first was very well done.
