About the Author

Richard Mason was born in South Africa in 1978 to activist parents who settled in England when he was ten. Brought up and educated in Britain he wrote his first novel, THE DROWNING PEOPLE, before going to Oxford.

The Kay Mason Foundation provides scholarships to disadvantaged South African children, paying for them to attend some of the country's best schools.

Reviews

Utterly entrancing... Richard Mason has created an epic narrative where human failure and decency are opposing forces in this riveting tale...written by a master of prose who knows effortlessly how to make the reader turn pages fast ...as a seemingly playful lie spirals into an explosion of greed, lust and ruthless ambition - Mail on SundayA triumph of a novel...powerfully evocative and wholly absorbing. Human passions, the lust for power and status, and the inevitable fallibilities of man and beast are drawn with exquisite detail - CNN LondonA stunning tour de force that will leave you gripped, moved and inspired. A richly atmospheric historical novel that says much about the way we live now, Who Killed Piet Barol? is a book to read again and again: a compelling story written in luminous prose with vividly-realised characters. This is a book by a serious writer at the height of his powers - Alex Preston, author of This Bleeding CityThis is a gorgeous treat of a novel, full of contradictions and subtleties - THE TIMESHugely accomplished . . . One of the best books of the year - INDEPENDENT on THE HISTORY OF A PLEASURE SEEKER
