Ian Patrickabout this book: Does this kind of crime happen only in fiction? Think again. A jet-propelled thriller in the murder capital of the world. From the author's front-line research in the company of detectives and forensics experts, and drawing on his personal experience of vicious crime. Fiction merges with reality in a race to trace weapons and bring down the killers.
• "This is my favorite South African crime series at the moment and an excellent example of Sunshine Noir set in subtropical Durban. It's an interesting cast of characters with a fast moving plot, lots of action and completely believable..." (Goodreads)
• "A police procedural with fascinating characters, drunken thugs speaking accurate slang, and thoroughly entertaining cops who work hard at their craft but are witty and human." (Goodreads)
Gun Dealing is the second volume in a quartet of thrillers set in and around the coastal city of Durban, South Africa. Each volume of the quartet is a stand-alone independent thriller, but the four books trace the same narrative arc in a search for one major cuplrit. In this volume the search leads the detectives on a hunt for ruthless cop-killers.

This was different and very goodIt was a good change from the normal USA thriller. This was set in Africa and boy, are the criminals bad there. I loved it. It was a weird world and a fascinating read. Exciting and lots of very good forensic detail. I like that. The author knows his craft. [by Horace Jersey (Evanston,Ill.)]
Good thriller, especially on audioI liked this a lot. I had got the audio version a long time ago but hadn't listened to it. Then these was the free promotion with the kindle version so I thought I'd haul out the audio while I read it. Excellent choice. The accents are very well done and the drunken criminals are very real and believable. Great thriller. Perhaps a bit too fast on the narration.
