Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A smashing story. Imposing a strict time limit and a tight location on his plot, [Meyer] ramps up the suspense to an unbearable degree. Best of all, his sharply drawn characters really feel part of the new South Africa, where loyalties and beliefs must always be questioned.” Financial Times
“Twenty years after the release of Nelson Mandela, South Africa remains a troubled place, and Meyer’s novels give rare insights into the texture of everyday life. Above all, though, [Thirteen Hours] is a vigorous, exciting novel that combines memorable characters and plot with edge-of-the-seat suspense.” Sunday Times (London)
“Blistering…The fugitive girl’s desperate flight, and Benny’s equally frantic efforts to save her, deliver a heart-pumping yarn in an exotic locale.” Winnipeg Free Press
“There have been other South African crime novelists, but none are as deft at place as Deon Meyer. Thirteen Hours is Cape Town today, with all its exquisite beauty, tribal conflicts, loyalties, and corruptions…Meyer weaves all this into a tightly plotted story—with a twist that works beautifully—and unforgettable characters.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“Bestselling South African novelist Meyer delivers another exciting if brutally violent crime novel…Meyer also steeps his novel in the day-to-day life of a country still reeling in the wake of radical transition.” Booklist (starred review)

Excellent!

I really enjoyed this. The characters are especially brilliant and Simon Vance's narration is, as always, a joy to listen to.
