Random Violence

'“A new generation of crime writers is trying to put apartheid and modern South Africa in focus . . . [Random Violence is] a thought-provoking book.” —The Oregonian "Mackenzie, who has lived in South Africa from an early age, plays her hand deftly, with a page turner of a story, intriguing characters—Jade is particularly memorable—and a wealth of South African color, including its appalling racial history. At once brutal and beautiful, Random Violence leaves nothing to chance in hooking the reader." —Richmond Times-Dispatch "South African writer Mackenzie has created a strong female character with amazing resilience, unusual friends, and incredible luck. . . . Gripping." —Library Journal (starred review) "Set in contemporary South Africa, Mackenzie's triumphant debut introduces PI Jade de Jong. . . . The plot has more than its fair share of nice twists, and Mackenzie does a superb job of making the reader care for her gutsy lead while offering a glimpse at life in South Africa after apartheid. Readers will wish Jade a long fictional career." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)'
