Jane Rosenthal Reviews Shadow by Carel van der Merwe

ShadowVerdict: carrot

This reads like a South African James Bond novel, but is more elegantly written and rather more serious, both in its exploration of a man’s purpose in life and in its comment on the scene of the action, in this case South Africa.

Paul du Toit, whom readers may know from Carel van der Merwe’s earlier books, No Man’s Land and Shark, is a South African who lives in London.
