    One thought on “Gevaarlijke Dans”

    1. A policeman's young daughter goes missing in Cape Town and the police think he took her as part of his custody battle. I liked the plot which I found tense and compelling and I liked the characterisation as I found most characters easy to understand if not like. I also liked the politics involved in modern day policing which, although iI know nothing about them, seemed all too realistic to me. I did, however, find this a difficult read due to the style of writing. I thought the writing was rathe [...]

    2. Original review can be found at kristineandterri/2I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Witness Impulse via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!I enjoy a good mystery every now and again and from the synopsis this one sounded like it would fit the bill. A story about a six year old girl who disappears from her dance class with all fingers pointing towards her father who also happens to be a cop. Who can he turn to to help find his beloved daughter when nobody is [...]

    3. In all fairness, I think this book deserves a higher rating than the 3.5 stars I'm giving it; I felt like I'd walked in during the middle of a story where everybody knew each other and their histories and I was trying to read between the lines to figure out what I'd missed from earlier books in the series. The author did a nice job of telling the story and developing the story, but if I read more of this author I'll start with the first book to see what I missed.

    4. This was a very interesting book to read. It's fast-paced with a high emotional charge - which is just as well - because the callous and casual violence imposed upon the young victims would spell out despair were it not for the adrenaline surge of emotion and intrigue which carries one through the pages. This book portrays the devastating kill rate not of a single crazed murderer but of a damaged and gang-ridden society where the rich get richer and the poor stay at the bottom of the heap unless [...]

    5. When I was on a recent visit to South Africa, I picked up the paperback version of the book and decided to buy it on Kindle as it looked like a good story. The story was excellent, topical and gives good insights into the gang life in Cape Town. If the story wasn't so gripping I would have given up on the book as it did have formatting issues. Most words ending in a y had the y missing at the end. The use of speech marks was inconsistent and rather confusing, often making me have to re-read to f [...]

    6. Warning to future readers: READ THIS BOOK FIRST IN THE SERIES! This was a five-star book but I'm taking off a star because why in the fuck is this listed as #3 in the series as it's clearly the first in the story? Between the publisher's website, the author's website, , , I still can't figure out the original publishing chronology. Regardless of whatever is happening between the South African publishing and the American publishing mess, I love this series. I love the relationship between Clare a [...]

    7. This is the first crime book I've read by a South African author. I liked the writing style because it felt like home. I could relate to the way she way writing even though it was from Cape Town however I did feel like it was a bit American-ized with specific references that character's would make. Otherwise I enjoyed the fact that the Clare and Riedwaan had sexual tension but it wasn't extremely obvious. I like that I couldn't put the book down and I could feel Clare's loneliness. I know I prob [...]

    8. a 6 year old girl goes missing. her father is blamed. he is a police captain. a journalist gets involved and everyone's life comes at stakeruggled a bit with this book. its not a bad tale, its just there are so many layers and charcters and twists and turns that it just made reading ir hard work. also, there are lots of local words used in italics (the book is based in Cape Town, South Africa, in the shadow of Table Mountain). while most can be figured out, some i couldnt. made for a hard read.w [...]

    10. This was the first of the big South African crime writers that I read and I was massively surprised at how good it was. This rates up there with The girl with the dragon tattoo and that series, along with Deon Meyer's work which I have also since read. It is pretty gruesome and tough reading, and having just moved down to Cape Town where this book is set, it gave me an interesting perspective of the Cape gang scene which I had heard about but did not fully understand. I will read her books again [...]

    11. I'm hooked on this authoress! An exciting and thrilling tale about the streets below Table Mountain in Cape Town. Abduction, murder, drugs and gangstres are the order of the day. Clare Hart, the heroine of the series, is the profiler, who does an excellent job of finding Yasmin, Captain Riedwaan Faizal's daughter. Riedwaan is the chief suspect. I am looking forward to reading Margie Orford's other books

    12. Liked this book. It was a brilliant pairing of profiler and policeman. But the interesting bit is the policeman is emotionally involved in the crime, the profiler is emotionally involved in the policeman and the crime and its all set against a backdrop of casual, violence life is cheap South Africa. What a read. I'd recommend it if you like gritty.

    13. I read this in book club a while ago, but couldn't find it on Visual Bookshelf to write a review (so my star rating may not be 100% correct). A dark and twisted story, particularly enjoyed because it was set in Cape Town so I could relate to many of the locations. An easy read and worth giving a try.

    14. The best in the series so far. A policeman who works in gang crimes daughter is abducted and Clare Hunt works to find her. Is she stolen by stranger, gang member retaliation, family, or someone in nearby community. A really good read!

    15. this was listed as the third book to be read, but it should really have been the first. It still is a good book though and I can't wait to read the next one.

    16. Interesting mystery set in South Africa. This was my first exposure to Margie Orford, but I will likely read more.

    17. This book was really different. The writing needs some work and it was a bit confusing at times, but it was fast-paced and riveting at the same time.
