Review The snowman of Zanzibar by Fany Van Hemelen:
The snowman of Zanzibar is a story that travels around the world. Jason Green is an ex Rhodesian soldier and now is he working in London as a freelance insurance fraud investigator and is a bit depressed. Then he got an interesting and well paid job to search, what, the son of a wealthy businessman is doing to make money. In this case he has to travel to Zimbabwe and Tanzania, where he ends in a cruel and sad history. By this novel I get an intriguing glimpse of the African way of living and the lovely people who live there. The bad ones are in fact evil and the good ones will do what they can to protect each other.
The snowman of Zanzibar is an easy written book and the characters are well developed. It’s a fast paced novel with a good plot line and with a message inside. The atmosphere and locations are well-described and the personalities are lively.
This is a book full of action, but besides that it looks between the lines is some depth in it and I am looking forward to read other adventures of Jason Green.
