  • About the Author

    Peter Church is a South African fiction novelist renowned for the dark and racy nature of his writing. His debut novel, Dark Video, was published by Random House in South Africa and Australia in 2008, and delved into a sordid world of online video sharing. The was followed up in 2011 with Bitter Pill, a thriller dealing with the scourge of drink spiking on the local club scene. Bitter Pill was long listed for the Sunday Times Fiction Prize in the same year. Church lives in Cape Town with his wife, the artist Paula Church, and three children. He is a member of SA's PEN association of writers and his short stories have been published in a number of local anthologies. His latest novel, Crackerjack, is due for release in January 2019 and will be his North American debut.


    "[T]his impressively original and deftly crafted paperback will prove to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to community library collections and the personal reading list." - Midwest Book Review * Midwest Book Review *
    "Church's characters are strong and believable, and the plot keeps the pages turning." - Michael Sears, New York Journal of Books
    "[A] rough-edged page-turner in a similar pacy vein to the thrillers of best-selling author Deon Meyer, and fellow Afrikaans writer Irma Venter."" -The Herald (South Africa)
