The killer is, in fact, Thobela Mpayipheli, a former freedom fighter robbed of everything by the murder of his son. And when Griessel's daughter is kidnapped, his world and Thobela's converge towards a devastating climax.

"Complex, finely wrought characters, keen psychological insight and a compelling plot lift this crime novel from South African author Meyer." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes, I rave about this writer. He is so smart at constructing a plot and making the details speak about socio political issues without any ponderous statements. It all happens through the voices of the characters, often with wonderful humour.
Love Bennie Griesel. More of him please
More Deon Meyer please!
Saul Reichlin is wonderful, so accomplished at getting the nuances of accents and characters.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I enjoyed this book from the narrator to the story. Good charaters and detail. There was swearing but I thought it was in context and not over done.
A surprisingly good book. Great imperfect and believable characters. For me the South African location and politics was somewhat exotic and a welcome change from your typical locations. Saul Reichlin's narration goes beyond excellent with believable accents for the characters. Saul is by far my favourite Narrator and in my opinion is king of his craft.
Saul Reichlin do an exilent job by the manner he read the story. Deon Meyer is a writer who knowns how to keep you attention by the why he presents the story.
I enjoy his work very much
You dont know whats going to happen , you think it will happen in a certain way , then he surprize you that the events unfolding happens very different than you have thougt
He brings the suspense out exelent by the manner he present it to you.
The lady who telling her life story to the vicor , and all the drama that she went through. It made you think how much damage a child gets in a disfuctional house.
This is an exelent work of art, thanks Deon Meyer for your work. Saul Reichlin for presenting this work in an exelent manner
I will not buy another book by this author...the story was frustrating and the ending more so.
not this author
the one that said nothing
the narration was the only good thing about this book
