When PI Jade de Jong invites Superintendent David Patel on a scuba diving holiday in St. Lucia, she hopes the time away will rebuild their conflicted relationship. Jade’s dreams are soon shattered when David calls off their affair, forcing her into the arms of environmentalist Craig Niewoudt. But the next morning, romantic issues are put aside when a scuba diving instructor, Amanda Bolton, is found brutally stabbed to death. Amanda is a most unlikely candidate for murder—a quiet and intelligent woman who until a few months ago pursued a high-powered career as an air traffic controller. She had few acquaintances and no lovers. The only loose end is a postcard in her room from Jo’burg-based Themba Msamaya, asking how she is doing “after 813 and the Fallen.” Jade and David put their differences aside and start the deadly hunt.

    " Aside from giving her main character the skills to perform tasks and telling the reader about it before she gets in a situation where said skills are needed, the author has produced a totally unexpected ending that is sure to satisfy most readers. "

    " It failed to hold my interest. I was not able to finish it. I found the characters unfocused and it seemed they just wandered around aimlessly through the novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria Kiguthi | 9/24/2012

    " Another great Jade de Jong book. A pending environmental disaster, a plane crash, and many other incidents are all related. Very suspenseful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicholas | 6/14/2012

    " Fun, but not as good as the previous Jade de Jong books. A bit more contrived. Not without potential, though, for the future of the series. Read as _Worst Case_, the South African version. "
