Johan Fourie skryf onderhoudend en met eerlikheid en passie oor die wereld van die stroper - mense wat gevorderde tegnologie, helikopters en groot geld inspan van hul duistere motiewe. Sy deeglike kennis van die veld, natuur en taktiek wat die stropers gebruik, dra daartoe by dat hy die leser 'n naelbytervaring gee oor 'n saak wat elke Suid-Afrikaner na aan die hart behoort te le. Die leser is telkens saam met die spesiale magte bly oor hul suksesse, maar is ook saam met hulle ontsteld wanneer hul nog 'n renoster verloor. Johan Fourie slaag daarin om die strategiee van die wildstropers, asook die pogings om hulle uit te oorle op 'n spannende wyse aan die leser voor te hou, sonder om hom te ontstel, maar terselfdertyd die leser skerp onder die indruk te bring tot watter uiterstes die stropers sal gaan.

First published in 1944 Fell Murder sees E.C.R. Lorac at the height of her considerable powers as a purveyor of well-made, traditional and emphatic detective fiction. The book presents a fascinating `return of the prodigal' mystery set in the later stages of the Second World War amidst the close-knit farmerfolk community of Lancashire's lovely Lune valley. The Garths had farmed their fertile acres for generations and fine land it was with the towering hills of the Lake Country on the far horizon. Garthmere Hall itself was old before Flodden Field, and here hot-tempered Robert Garth, still hale and hearty at eighty-two, ruled his household with a rod of iron. The peaceful dales and fells of the north country provide the setting for this grim story of a murder, a setting in fact which is one of the attractive features of an unusual and distinctive tale of evil passions and murderous hate in a small rural community.

Solomon knew that he had one advantage. A pawn ticket belonging to a dead man tucked into his top pocket - the only clue to the truth . . . An old soldier dies alone in his Edinburgh nursing home. No known relatives, and no Will to enact. Just a pawn ticket found amongst his belongings, and fifty thousand pounds in used notes sewn into the lining of his burial suit . . . Heir Hunter, Solomon Farthing - down on his luck, until, perhaps, now - is tipped off on this unexplained fortune. Armed with only the deceased's name and the crumpled pawn ticket, he must find the dead man's closest living relative if he is to get a cut of this much-needed cash. But in trawling through the deceased's family tree, Solomon uncovers a mystery that goes back to 1918 and a group of eleven soldiers abandoned in a farmhouse billet in France in the weeks leading up to the armistice. Set between contemporary Edinburgh and the final brutal days of the First World War as the soldiers await their orders, The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing shows us how the debts of the present can never be settled unless those of the past have been paid first . . .

A fabulous read' 'Another winner for Alex Cross and the great J. P.!' 'Once again, the author produces a very readable book. It is fast moving and the plot develops at a real pace. I thoroughly enjoyed this and recommend it to all.' 'Target: Alex Cross is from page 1 till the last one a warm bed for every thriller lover. Snuggling down, on a rainy day, and this book in your hands, you'll forget the rest of the world.' 'Multiple story lines woven into one keeps you interested and will make you hate yourself for finishing this book in one go. Where's number 27??? I want it now.'
