Bad City

Bad City, a South African crime thriller by Peter MorrisA young man arrives in Jo'burg from a village in northern Mozambique and is conscripted into one of the city's oldest organised crime syndicates. Joao Mucavinho soon learns who really runs this bad city: who controls the money, the kwash, and the turn of the dice. But forces are gathering against his masters... The city is on the brink of monumental changes; it is about to explode — and with it all the dreams, the lies and the power of the old order. It is a time of violent death, of survival, and an opportunity that only comes once. Bad City is an African novel that can lay legitimate claim to the title 'noir'. An thrilling anatomy of crime in one of the world's youngest and most dangerous cities. A future classic of the genre.
