Jack Burn is an American running from the law. Having moved his family to Cape Town, South Africa following a bank robbery gone bad, Jack and his family are now living a comfortable life in an affluent white section of Cape Town. It is in this community where Jack and his family become the target of local gang members perpetrating what they think will be an easy burglary – they’re soon proved wrong.

At a neighboring construction site to the Burn’s home, the night watchman (a hardcore ex-con named Benny Mongrel) witnesses the would be robbers/gang members enter the Burn’s home only to not see them come out. So this exciting story begins.

Smith’s writing is excitingly intense and action packed. Filled with grit, violence, and seedy characters that make it seem like it should be wrong to love this book this much. The nonstop action of Mixed Blood plays out like something worthy of the big screen.

Narrator John Lee’s performance is absolutely flawless. His pacing and character voices easily enhance an already gripping story. Listeners, from the beginning, are instantly transported to the unfolding action in Cape Town and remain there until the story’s very end. Characters as well as action packed scenes brilliantly come to life in Lee’s capable hands. The combination of Smith’s writing and Lee’s performance are so perfect a match that it will leave the listener with vivid images to savor long after the story is done.

    I love mysteries. I love audio. I love John Lee. Hummmm. Looks like a good one for me.

  2. The premise does sound like a good hollywood flick. I’ve got images of DiCaprio playing Jack Burn for some reason! Thanks for the review. I really have to get another audiobook soon.
