“With vivid imagery, punchy dialogue and black humour, Divine Justice establishes Joanne Hichens as a compelling voice in the crime-fiction world.”
– Jassie Mackenzie, Worst Case

“Another deliciously dark page-turner of note from the brilliant Joanne Hichens. Sweet Paradise is spiky, hard-hitting and thoroughly enjoyable. I defy you to put this one down and watch out for the ending – it’s a gut-puncher.”
– Sarah Lotz, bestselling author of Tooth and Nailed, The Three and Day Four.

“At last, a hard-boiled detective novel that does for Cape Town what Carl Hiaasen has done for Miami.” 
– Chris Roper, Marie Claire

Part of the Cutting Edge series, Stained is a gritty, honest and hard-hitting quick read for teens and young adults. The fast-moving, character-focused narrative delves right to the heart of a tougher side of life.
