Testimonials

> Detective Jake Klassen: "There are three people now in this sad murder mystery who died unfairly. First, Hazirah, Aamir's sister, who wanted to marry Alexander, a white boyfriend. Secondly, Ramona, the older lady in Aamir's class, who outdid him in marks and in landing a job in web design. Thirdly, Waldemar Guenter, the author of the book himself, who died of pancreatic cancer shortly after finishing, The New Crusades."

> Detective Ed Spencer: "I investigated the Ramona murder in Hamilton. She was a talented old lady taking computer classes when others her age cringed at the use of a computer. Jake Klassen and I almost had Aamir in our grasp but he fled to Iraq and joined ISIS. We got the parents though on the conspiracy, aiding and abetting charges."

> Designer Alexander Kucharski: "I intended to marry Hazirah. She was murdered through a wrongful notion of honour by her brother, Aamir, a religious fanatic. To be fair, Wally also showed how crazy the Christian religion could be, not just Islam, at different times throughout history. He blended history, current events and even romance into this creatively constructed murder mystery."


> Therapist Karl de Jong:
"Waldemar Guenter was a talented photographer, and if I may say so, an excellent writer. He saw the religious struggles in the world between Muslims and Christians as an ongoing problem since the Middle Ages. He wondered if the Crusades were a never ending story. He wrote about a so-called honour killing which he thought was an extreme misinterpretation of the Holy Qur'an."
