Jade de Jong
Created by Jassy Mackenzie
I think we've all had a sip of that brew.
But author Jassy Mackenzie adds serious kick to the punch by making her hero a woman, and then setting the whole she-bang in South Africa's Johannesburg, a place full of "crazy boomtown energy" and more than its share of its own dark, troubled history.
A fresh, not done-to-death setting, a sleuth with a hands-on approach to justice and a jaundiced, original vision makes JADE de JONG a character -- and a series -- well worth watching.
According to The Big Thrill, the author was born in Zimbabwe but moved to South Africa "when she was eight, and now lives near Johannesburg on a small farm with her partner, two horses, and two cats. She says she loves the energy, danger, and excitement of Johannesburg and believes there is no better place for a thriller writer to live." She's also wriiten several humourous erotic romances novels, including Folly, which became a bestseller in South Africa.
