    One thought on “Black Heart”

    1. Final installment in the Revenge Trilogy. Nicol has to be one of South Africa's hidden treasures. The Trilogy is absolutely riveting. I feel this sense of loss that I won't meet Mace & Pylon again. Please Mike

    2. Derde deel van de trilogie. Best de twee andere twee eerst lezen dus :-) Maar heel sterke thriller. Een aanrader als je houdt van spannende lectuur!

    3. (net aan 3.5*)In deel 3 van de Kaapstad trilogie worstelt Mace met de dood van zijn vrouw. Zij is in het tweede deel van deze trilogie ‘Killer Country´ vermoord en Mace houdt zijn aartsvijand, Sheemina February, verantwoordelijk voor de moord. Hij zint dan ook op wraak. Ondertussen moeten Mace en Pylon hun bedrijf Complete Security draaiende zien te houden. N.a.v. hun twee recente opdrachten komt het bedrijf negatief in de media. In eerste instantie wordt Veronica Dinsmor onder de neus van Ma [...]

    4. A very strange book that left me, in many ways, quite ambivalent about the lead characters, although I wanted to find out what happened to them, and I could not really put the book down. This is a trip into the dark heart of South Africa, a heart that is still recovering from the ravages of apartheid, and the struggle for liberation that ensued. It is also a thriller and a morality tale, dealing with the lives of Mace Bishop, a security consultant whose wife Oumou has been murdered, and Sheemina [...]

    5. The third book in the trilogy which revolves around Sheemina February's quest for revenge against Mace Bishop, an ex-freedom fighter, arms dealer, and intelligence operative, now a partner in a security company providing protection for VIP's and the well-to-do visiting Cape Town, South Africa.Gritty, fast-paced, authentic and scary would be good words to describe this novel which brings the story of Smeemina's revenge to a close. The novel plays off over a period of just a few days, and during t [...]

    6. I quite enjoyed this. It's not the most amazing mystery / thriller / crime / spy novel I've ever read, but it's a nice read. One of its big problems - for me - was that it couldn't quite decide which genre to sit in. It's just not quite mysterious enough to be a mystery, criminal enough to be crime, or tense enough to be a thriller. And that sort of leaves it as an interesting story with some quite nice ideas, that never really delivers anything to get your teeth into. But, like I said, I quite [...]

    7. wirklich spannend. hab es an einem tag gelesen, weil die story reinzieht. eine rachegeschichte, eine lonely cowboy, der die tochter durchbringen muss geschichte, ein sancho pansa typ als partner, waffengeschäfte, politischebverwicklungen und - leider - der übliche balkan kroegsverbrecher, diesmal kosovo.

    8. Der letzte Teil der hervorragenden Trilogie um Mace Bishop und Pylon Buso. Hat nicht zu 100 % meine sehr hohen Erwartungen erfüllt. Das Buch bietet wenig Überraschungsmomente. Vom Schreibstil und der düsteren Atmosphäre her natürlich ganz hervorragend. Auf KrimiZeit-Bestenliste 2014, Platz 4
