"This crime novel, is much more than a crime novel. It’s entertaining while it opens the readers’ eyes to what is really happening around us, every day – and we better be on our guard, because perceived fiction is reality – and what we are sold as reality is a bed of manipulated lies. Nor will the novel end on a bed of roses, as Hollywood stories usually do. This isn’t a Hollywood story. It demonstrates that even if small battles are won, the Big Struggle goes on, the struggle for justice, equality and finally – human freedom and solidarity must never end. “Beneath the Clouds” is a superb read."
"Christopher Black's "Beneath the Clouds" returns to the grand tradition of Dashiell Hammet's great detective novels, in which beneath the intricate and absorbing plot, lurks the layer of its probing purpose into the social and political reality of our world...
The theme of law and justice--their distance from each other--is alluded to as not strictly a local problem. One of the characters is an international criminal lawyer (as is the author), and he is haunted by an experience of monumental injustice against a Prime Minister (of Rwanda, not mentioned) on trial in Tanzania for fabricated crimes by "the international community." What goes on abroad goes on at home. And it needs to be set right by you and me and our best friends-- that was the message I got. What a wonderful read!"
