Item description for The Atom Heart Murders by John Caulfield...

The Atom Heart Murders When Superintendent John Murdoch discovers the tortured body of a young female barrister in her plush Cape Town home, all fingers point towards a notorious terrorist cell. But when a second body is found, the circumstances surrounding the killings begin to kindle sinister memories from Murdoch's past. Beneath the veneer of perfect blue skies and white sandy beaches, Murdoch descends into the darkness of the new South Africa; and as he becomes more obsessed with his own tragic history, we learn that he may not be who, or even what he claims .

Reviews - What do customers think about The Atom Heart Murders?

Atom Heart Murders - by John Caulfield  Nov 5, 2007
This is well written, intense and dark novel which, for a first-time publication by this author, impressed me greatly. The "new" South Africa, and specifically Cape Town, is described brilliantly using the dichotomy of immense natural beauty relative to the high crime rate, commonplace violence and lack of respect given by some to human life. Character development flows at a slow and steady pace, giving you time to get to know the people at the rate one does in real life, leaving room for both pleasant and unpleasant surprises. The story line is never boring, never predictable and always fascinating. This story could be true - for all I know perhaps it was, or maybe based on one anyway - but suffice to say that once the reader is drawn in (which doesn't take long) it is not an easy book to put down if you've not yet read all the way to the final page.

This book is not for the sqeamish or those with rose-colored glasses, and the story makes no pretenses to be a "light" read. If you enjoy seeing the dark side of life through the eyes of someone who's been there for perhaps too long, you'll like John Murdoch, the lead character. You will not like many other characters in this story, but you will recognize them as being real.

I, for one, hope that Mr Caulfield produces another gripping read sometime in the not too distant future - I'll be keeping an eye out...
