“The Mashego File” by Ian Patrick
Genre: Crime: Detective
Read: August 2018
‘The Mashego File’ by Ian Patrick is this season’s ‘must read’ detective novel. I was drawn in the second I started it.
Patrick sets in the scene early on, providing an in-depth social commentary on township life and the justice system in South Africa. Protagonist Nights Mashego may seem like a gentle giant, but this hard-nosed detective isn’t afraid to take the law into his own hands to defend the righteous. He’s a Harry Callahan with more appealing traits. He knows when to stretch the law, and when to abandon it completely. Mashego works to find a fine balance between the corruption of the judicial system and the harsh realties of community justice. This is a story that challenges the reader’s perceptions of law and justice. The story flows well, the plot engaging, and the characters believable. If you like detective novels, then the tales of Nights Mashego are for you. Do yourself a favour and get a copy.
