Divine Justice by Joanne Hichens
01 Oct 2011
A scorching summer in Cape Town. As fires blaze across the mountain, an evangelist delivers an ominous prophecy, right-wing thugs plot murder and mayhem… and gorgeous Rae Valentine has eyes only for her man, Mullet Mendes. But Rae can’t outrun the storm of righteous fury that’s taking over the city, and when the heavens open (in more ways than she can imagine) her life takes an unexpected turn.
Before she knows it, she’s a newly badged private investigator with a case of missing jewels on her hands, doing her damndest to keep Mullet’s detective business afloat and his partner, Vince Saldana, off the booze. As she battles her personal demons, Rae must solve the mystery, outwit the bad guys and rebuild her life…
Compelling, stylish and underscored with pitch-perfect dark humour, Divine Justice brings to life a feisty, sexy, resourceful new heroine – the inimitable Rae Valentine.
