Why You Were Taken

WYWT kindle cover flat

“A tightly wound and imaginative thriller.”Paige Nick.

Johannesburg 2021: Kirsten is a roaming, restless synaesthete: a photographer with bad habits and a fertility problem. A strange, muttering woman with dog hair on her jersey approaches Kirsten with a warning, and is found dead shortly afterwards. The warning leads Kirsten to the Doomsday Vault and a hit list of seven people – and Kirsten’s barcode is on it.

WHY YOU WERE TAKEN was optioned by SABC to be adapted as a radio serial, and was featured on The Sunday Times book reviewers’ Best Books of 2015.

The National English Literary Museum recently ordered a copy for their collection.
