A great near-future thriller!

Enjoyed this one a lot! From the author's fascinating incorporation of synesthesia to likeable/believable characters and thought-provoking plot, there's a lot to like here. I'm looking forward to the sequels.

Fast becoming a favourite author

I was given this audiobook for free at my request in exchange for an honest review.

I was excited to read this as I'd loved the short story collection Sticky Fingers. It didn't disappoint. Characters were rounded and likeable, story itself intriguing. I loved the idea of thinking in colours. As a huge Stephen King fan I also enjoyed the references throughout (characters reading his books rather than pinched ideas).
As a Brit, I'm usually reading British or American novels so this is a welcome change. Narration totally on the ball too, nothing stilted, no pained accents!

It's hard to say more without spoilers but I'm looking forward to starting book 2.

Science fiction and mystery. Gripping story.

A gripping story that takes place in two timelines but is easy to follow. The story takes place in south Africa in both the past and the future. There are elements of science fiction, family, trust and murder. Interesting to the very end.
