Publisher's Summary

"The woman's cries floated down the passage and bubbled out through the front door in helpless, anguished, tortured spasms. It was a sound that echoed down the ages. The horror of mothers from any species that might ever have lived on the planet. A parent trying to deal with the impossible: the death of her young ones. It was a sound to chill the blood." 
A notorious killer escapes from prison. Heart-rending scenes show the kinds of trauma faced by victims of crime. The thrilling action takes place against a tapestry of courage and heroism in daily clashes between the forces of law and order on the one hand and brutal crime on the other.

The dog's the hero

If you could sum up Death Dealing in three words, what would they be?

Outstanding action thriller

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, all the way. Every twist and turn you can think of takes place and just as you think things are OK it hits you hard from another direction

Have you listened to any of Ian Patrick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. Never heard his voice before. This is excellent: good voice, good accents, good atmosphere

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. Definitely. There's a heart-stopping moment in a number of places, but especially in the last chapter. Oh boy. Hold on to your seats and have the tissues ready.

Any additional comments?

The detail of the places in and around Durban is fantastic. The research clearly has been done, and very well. There's a dog in this story that reminds me of my own dog. Brilliant animal. Just like mine. Listeners will love this.

Very real and very scary

What made the experience of listening to Death Dealing the most enjoyable?

I used to live up there where the action takes place and it is so accurate. It is really scary to see how crime has escalated especially in that region, and this audiobook tells it as it is.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Am I allowed to say that my favourite character was a dog? If not, then my favourite character is Mavis, the young constable. Brave and intelligent woman.

Which character – as performed by Ian Patrick – was your favorite?

I liked Jeremy Ryder, too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I'd like to listen to it on a long drive from George to Joburg. Safer than reading it in bed, as I did. That was scary, because every sound in the house made me worry.

Any additional comments?

I liked the accents of the characters.
