I love this book. I think of Zinzi as a hardboiled detective with her "the case is over when I say it's over" attitude. For me, the supernatural element of being "animalled" did not in any way get in the way of a fine crime novel. Beukes is on my "buy anything she writes" list.


You're right, Mack! She has such a strong voice. And I loeved the way I simply didn't know what was real and what was invented. Not sure the SA tourist board would wholeheartedly endorse Beukes but I wanted to go clubbing!


This sounds like one for me. Great review.


thanks for sharing
