Khaleel Datay is a second generation South African with roots in Murud, Janjira over 225km south-west of Mumbai, India, where his forebears served the ruling sultans for successive generations. This, to a large extent, laid the foundation for his debut novel, THE WINTER DECEPTION.

Good book, well written characters, good plot. Makes me keen for more of this author's work.

I rarely read spy thrillers, as I'm more a fantasy and sci-fi kind of lady, but I found this to be a very fast paced and high action read with plenty of intrigue. There is just enough drama to keep you at the edge of your seat and turning those pages.
Mr. Datay obviously put a lot of time and thought into character and plot development and I found the book to be well written and quite enjoyable. His characters are believable and its easy to establish a rapport with them. One aspect that I particularly enjoyed was his detailed descriptions of the different locations that his main character, Winter, finds himself in. It's a pleasure to read a novel in which the author has obviously gone the extra mile to ensure that he has a well-rounded novel with which to entertain his audience. Kudos to him for that. I'm genuinely curious to see what he comes up with next! Great entertainment, I'd definitely recommend it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this spy thriller, which I think you’ll find a reasonably quick read despite its length.
Nick Winter is a very real character with the same flaws the rest of humanity possesses – except, in his line of business, those flaws could get him killed. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys spy thrillers with characters you can relate to and feel for.
