Invites have gone out for the launch of Joanne Hichens’s novel Divine Justice at the Kimberley Hotel, Cape Town, on 13 October. For details go here: The books comes with puffs of high praise: ‘It is both an intriguing mystery and a brilliant character study, presenting vivid snapshots of desperate people straddling the fault lines in contemporary South African society. A gripping narrative that rushes to a thrilling climax’; (Roger Smith) ‘With vivid imagery, punchy dialogue and black humour, Divine Justice depicts the sinister side of Cape Town and its surrounds.
