Corvus offer up one of their occasional genre releases, this time with something dark, dangerous and very interesting indeed. The Mall is a fast moving, adrenaline fuelled page turner by psuedonymous South African author(s) S.L. Grey and is published in hard cover.
"When the child she's baby-sitting goes missing in a Johannesburg mall, self-confessed outcast Rhoda Hlope bullies disgruntled shop-clerk Daniel Jacobson into helping her search for the child. As they explore the labyrinthine service corridors behind the mall's facade, they find themselves forced to flee from an inconceivable horror that chases them deeper into the bowels of the mall. Thrust together by accident, and taunted by disturbing text messages, Rhoda and Dan, travel through the murky back-end of the mall - the side that customers never see - and come out at a mirror world which seems to tell the truth, violently. But what machinations lie behind the mysterious Management's games?"
