SAM WILSON has written, developed and directed a number of television programs and documentaries. He lives in South Africa and Zodiac Rising is his debut novel.Review:
“All the more impressive considering that it is author Sam Wilson''s debut novelist, Zodiac clearly reveals his genuine flair for his authentic and extraordinary storytelling skills and ability to consistently engage his reader''s attention from cover to cover.”
- Midwest Book Review
“Zodiac delivers more than a narration of police investigation and serial killer chase. The reader can feel the challenges of a society with an apartheid-like system. The book flows fast as the author has built the suspense from the beginning of the story. A good read!”
- Mystery Tribune
“Smart and compelling, Sam Wilson is a bold storyteller with an amazing mind who takes you to unexpected places.”
- Lauren Beukes, author of 'The Shining Girls'
“A brilliant and original premise, twisty plot, witty dialogue, and characters you can really get behind―Zodiac is an absolute blast. This is a must-read, and I’m struggling to think of a reader who wouldn’t love it.”
- Sarah Lotz, author of 'Day Four'
“The finest dystopian novels―1984, The Handmaid’s Tale, A Clockwork Orange, and my personal favorite, Vladimir Nabokov’s Bend Sinister―make a connection with their dark fiction grounded in the reality of our present age. A society divided by preconception and controlled by selfish interests is certainly aligned with current times. Zodiac has an important message to impart, and Wilson tells it in an entertaining manner.”
- Criminal Element
“An adroitly written thriller by a novelist who proves to have impeccable storytelling skills. It is undoubtedly a book which works both on the level of its intriguing concept and sheer narrative nous.”
- Barry Forshaw, author of 'Nordic Noir' and 'Euro Noir'
“An enjoyable tale with dramatic payoffs. Readers will definitely enjoy the hesitant-but-growing working relationship between Burton and Childs and want to read more stories with them.”
- Mystery Scene
“Clever. Crime fans looking for something different will be satisfied.”
- Publishers Weekly
