Jade de Jong

Created by Jassy Mackenzie

A tough private eye with a dark, troubled past?

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.

UNDER OATH

  • "Set in contemporary South Africa, Mackenzie's triumphant debut introduces PI Jade de Jong.... The plot has more than its fair share of nice twists, and Mackenzie does a superb job of making the reader care for her gutsy lead while offering a glimpse at life in South Africa after apartheid."
