Thank you to Bookish First for an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The novel explores the criminal world and provides insight into the space between white and black Zimbabweans. The examination of broken families was compelling, despite the disturbing nature of many sections. The premise of the novel was extremely interesting. I was excited to be exposed to Zimbabwe culture through story. But for me, while the story itself held promise, the writing fell flat.

The novel was a tad heavy in conveying a political agenda. Additionally, I found the dialogue style of the novel to be confusing and ineffective. While this is normally I style I greatly appreciate, it just wasn't executed well.

Getting out this important story is admirable. And for many readers, what I deem shortcomings in writing, won't be an issue.
