Book Review: The Top Prisoner of C-Max by Wessel Ebersohn

The Top Prisoner of C-MaxBy Aubrey Paton for the Sunday Times

The Top Prisoner of C-Max, by Wessel Ebersohn, Umuzi, Exclusive Books R195

South Africa has some of the most talented crime writers in the world.

Wessel Ebersohn proves he is right up there with the best of them in his latest thriller, which once again pairs the elderly Jewish prison psychologist Yudel Gordon and the young black lawyer Abigail Bukula.

Enslin Kruger, the most powerful prisoner in Pretoria’s C-Max, is dying, but before he goes he wants to take revenge on Gordon. He also want to pass on his “crown”. He combines the two by setting his successors a competition to murder Gordon’s protégé. The prize? Becoming the new prison boss.

This is the third in the Gordon-Bukula partnership and is every bit as exciting and thrilling as the previous two.

  • The Top Prisoner of C-Max is published by Umuzi
