Reviews

Praise for Deon Meyer - :The narrative is well-plotted, and the novel brings to life the rich and volatile diversity of contemporary South Africa. There's nothing flashy here, just a good story, very well told. Would there were more like it. - SpectatorDeon Meyer is a top notch plotter and has created one of the best ensemble (and multi-racial) casts of any modern police procedural series. - Shots magazineDeon Meyer's gritty crime novels [are] part police procedural, part political thriller . . . What makes Meyer such a national treasure - and as good as anyone in the world - is that even if you have no knowledge or interest in South Africa's history or present, his books are compelling page-turners. Politics and race are just part of the intricately crafted superstructure bolted onto the rock-solid chassis of a top-quality crime thriller, driven by a writer with deceptive skill. - Books LiveCrime fiction with real texture and intelligence. - IndependentTells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation. - Times Literary SupplementThis year's great discovery: classy, edgy writing, subtly plotted and beautifully balanced between fast-paced action, pungent social comment and the process of investigation. - Weekend Australian
