n Without Prejudice - A scarily contemporary murder story
Death in the New Republic, David Dison : book review

Volume 7, Issue 8
  • ISSN : 1681-178X



I must start by admitting that two things put me off David Dison's book before I even starting reading it. The first was the endorsement (by Rian Malan) on the cover, suggesting that this book was "... in the great tradition of Jeffrey Archer". Jeffrey Archer? I can't stand the man.

The other was the setting of the novel in contemporary South Africa, with the apartheid background and inevitable disillusioned white person who comes to accept the realities of a transforming society. It's all just a bit too real for my liking: I prefer my popular literary drama to be about deranged serial killers in far-off places.
