Mike Nicol Latest

The latest Vicki Kahn and Fish Pescado

“…proves that Africa too can produce top-class thrillers” – The Times
“…more than a scurrilously entertaining roman-a-clef… both topical and compelling” – Barry Forshaw, The Guardian
“…outstanding…an immediate impact in a crowded genre” – Maxim Jakubowski, lovereadinguk
“…an intelligent, nuanced thriller that is bound to win Nicol a lot of new readers and maybe some awards.” Crime Fiction Lover
“…does not disappoint as a vibrant and visceral example of modern espionage fiction which roams effortlessly from Africa to Europe and back again.” – Mike Ripley, Shots Magazine
“This has to be one of the best books published by a local author this year, and having said that, it has international appeal because it is so skilfully written that you don’t have to be South African to get it.” – Jennifer Crocker, The Cape Times
With every book, Nicol increases in stature – and he didn’t start off from a low base.
“Staatsrotte is in alle opsigte ’n hoogtepunt in Nicol se oeuvre” – Jonathan Amid, Rapport
“…outstanding, entertaining and sometimes startlingly apposite…” – Jenny Crwys-Williams
“A clever, complex thriller… breathtaking…” – Joanne Macgregor, Sunday Times
“Great spy thriller…” – Tamara LP-Williams, Classic FM
“Met Staatsrotte doen Mike Nicol sy reputasie gestand as gesoute skrywer” – Cas van Rensburg, Die Burger
“Agents of the State … is a gritty detective-cum-spy novel that cuts scarily close to the bone of South African political corruption. It masterfully combines humour, suspense and catchy prose to confirm Nicol as world-class” – Karin Brynard, author of Our Fathers, Sunday Times
“Prescient…” – Sue Grant-Marshall, Radio Today
“The story comes straight out of today’s headlines, and ends in an explosive climax. It will grip you from page 1.” – Brian Joss, Cape Community Newspapers
“Die karakters is kleurvol en fassinerend, die intriges boeiend en die gebeure hou jou op die punt van jou stoel. Jy gaan ver soek vir meer aksie wat so boeiend geskryf is. Uitmuntend uit die Engels vertaal in Afrikaans deur Theunis Engelbrecht.” – Phyllis Green, Sarie
