9780099581352: City of Blood

Longlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger.

Siphiwe, a nineteen-year-old orphan, is haunted by memories of the senseless death of his elder brother. When a woman selling mangoes is stabbed on the street in front of him, Siphiwe rushes to her aid, desperate to stop history repeating itself, but in doing so unwittingly crosses the paths of two very dangerous men set on revenge and betrayal.

As the violence on the streets intensifies, and the danger to those he loves most increases, Siphiwe soon has no choice but to seek help amongst criminals and police alike.

Review:

" Terrific...The city’s vibrant, exciting, dangerous atmosphere is superbly portrayed" (Marcel Berlins The Times)

"Johannesburg is fertile ground for a crime writer… Strong and vivid, City of Blood is the coming-of-age story of both Siphiwe and the slightly older Progress… There is plenty of action, but also, amid the chaos and carnage, a sense of redemption" ( Guardian)

"Explosive and emotional, a journey to the dark side you won't forget" (Dreda Say Mitchell)

"Shows how a simple act of kindness can have catastrophic consequences... Villiers gives an urgent desperation to the mounting danger as her tale heads towards its grand-scale showdown" ( Metro)

"MD. Villiers' remarkable debut novel is a coming-of-age story, fast-moving, thrilling and thought-provoking. Her plot is well-developed, her prose lively, occasionally lyrical but always clear and direct...[she] writes a mean action scene. Her characters too, are a joy" ( CrimeTime)

Book Description:

Longlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger: A story of survival, revenge and ultimately, redemption, City of Blood is a gripping coming of age story set against a searing backdrop of violence, heat and colour
