Praise for MIXED BLOOD:
“A classic wrong-man-in-the-wrong-place thriller.” – Booklist
“A gripping thriller that follows believable (if sometimes grotesque) characters along a desperate rush to ruin. Highly recommended.” Ron Terpening - Library Journal
“Smith offers a gritty tale of corruption and vengeance set in South Africa in his absorbing debut. His taut prose bodes well for future thrillers from his pen.” - Publishers Weekly
