I won a copy of this book through FirstReads I was disgusted by the style and language that the book was written in but they helped the visualization and seemed to sincerely portray the events that were being described in the book ie drug dealers ex cons and corrupt cops I think that the ending was a good one to show that there is no really justice served to anyone and it remains a world where stronger and powerful individuals suppress the rest Overall for me it seemed an average thriller that made me feel reluctant to visit South Africa
