Shadow by Carel van der Merwe (IOL review)

Shadow by Carel van der Merwe (IOL review)

Reviewed by Renee Rautenbach

"In Shadow, acclaimed writer Carel van der Merwe returns to Paul du Toit, main character of his debut novel No Man’s Land (2007), which was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Prize and the M-Net Literary Award.

Shadow has much more than is required of the average suspense novel. It stays with you and makes you think about your own position in this country, your baggage of the past, sorting out a life. This gripping novel is an intelligently written read that will appeal to any South African who has lived consciously for the past decade or two."

About the book:

Paul du Toit settled in the United Kingdom after leaving under a cloud ten years before. Now he is divorced and middle-aged, and bogged down in a boring job and a floundering relationship. He therefore readily accepts a straightforward – or so he thinks – assignment from a wealthy London financier that takes him back to South Africa. But the country has changed, and the waters are treacherous. Suddenly Paul has to battle not only the shadows of his own life, but also the hidden powers that control South Africa.
