"Böhmke serves up a murderous cocktail of sex, greed, and post-modern South African racial psychosis. The writing is great, the dialogue funny and the political analysis sharper than a bicycle spoke between the ribs. I am seriously envious." Rian Malan, author of "My Traitor's Heart"
"An author who has the courage to write about the First Indigenous Peoples. The breaking of the silence is significant" Chief Jean Burgess, Ghonaqua First Indigenous Peoples
