Go Fast by Rod Humphris
Simon Ellice discovers he’s caught up in a tangle of illegal power and hidden love in the ancient smuggling port of Nador. This noir crime thriller follows Si’s adventures in Morocco through the lush kif terraces of the Rif Mountains and the dunes of the Sahara. Which way – and to whom – will he turn?
“… the effortless, upbeat, driving momentum of its storytelling. The precision with detail brings everything to remarkable life creating a hyper-reality which is entirely appropriate for the high octane, high risk world of drug smuggling, the extreme environment, the decentred characters, the exuberance of unfettered youth, the Tarantino-esque relish for random violence. It’s written with tremendous energy and invention and is consistently smart and witty.”
