Fiction - Novels
The story of Alois, an intelligent young man struggling to find his way in a southern African country wracked by political unrest and a crumbling economy. A chance encounter gives Alois the opportunity to make some fast money, and improve his future.
However, his assignment goes horribly wrong and he unexpectedly finds himself in the midst of a complicated and perilous struggle to rescue a war hero and transform the political landscape. An unlikely and unwilling hero, Alois ultimately learns that dreams and justice are both within his
grasp, and that the power of the corrupt can be fought with courage, persistence and the occasional bold leap of faith.
Described as a cross between Dan Brown and Alexander McCall Smith, The Chicken Thief reads at a cracking pace, is dramatic and colourful, and will appeal to lovers of quality fiction. It first appeared as a self-published book.
