Review

If DEAD AT DAYBREAK is anything to go by, we are seeing the rise of a major new, international writing talent. I cannot recommend this book highly enough (The Big Issue)

A new book by Deon Meyer is a cause for celebration. Heart of the Hunter is not just an exciting story of a pursuit; it paints a thought-provoking picture of today's South Africa (Sunday Telegraph)

'DEAD BEFORE DYING is both a portrait of a society in change and the interior life of a troubled but essentially decent man, written with wit and insight. But more than that, it's a genuinely gripping page-turner whose shocking revelations hit the reader with real surprise' (Manchester Evening News)

A brand-new talent and a welcome change of locale for thriller fans...An impressively tangled web and taut narrative keeps the reader guessing until the last couple of pages (Heat*** on DEAD AT DAYBREAK)

Despite the complexity of its tightly woven plot - skilfully revealed through newspaper articles and intelligence reports - Meyer's U.S. debut moves at a breathtaking pace that will carry readers away. A sympathetic protagonist and the landscape of South Africa add colour to the story. Highly recommended (Starred Review, Library Journal)

'There have been any number of exceptional mysteries set in southern Africa over the years, from James McClure's cracking police procedurals featuring Inspector Kramer and his Bantu assistant, Mickey Zondi, to Alexander McCall Smith's whimsical Botswana novels. Cape Town author Deon Meyer appears poised to join their ranks with the U.S. release of HEART OF THE HUNTER ... a taut post-Apartheid thriller pitting a common man against a corrupt government ... Breakneck pacing, staccato dialogue - if ever a book had 'movie' written all over it, HEART OF THE HUNTER is it (think Mystic River meets Rambo, in a setting suggesting The Gods Must Be Crazy).' (Bookpage)

Like John le Carré's THE TAILOR OF PANAMA, this novel examines the rippling horrors too often caused by so-called intelligence agents working for foreign masters in backwater nations. With simmering racial tensions, a bounty of natural resources, and a government whose members worked both sides of the cold-war fence, South Africa should prove fertile ground for many fine spy thrillers to come. Don't be surprised if quite a few of them are written by Meyer.' (Booklist)

Exceptional...a taut post-Apartheid thriller pitting a common man against a corrupt government...Breakneck pacing, staccato dialogue...think Mystic River meets Rambo, in a setting suggesting The Gods Must Be Crazy (Bookpage)

'Abroad, Deon Meyer has been compared to John le Carré. But it would be more appropriate to compare him to the equally splendid English crime writer Gerald Seymour. However, Meyer can easily stand on his own without comparison to others, as literary South Africa can certainly be proud of this intelligent thriller.' (Politiken, Denmark)

Out of post-apartheid South Africa comes a thriller good enough to nip at the heels of le Carré...Wonderful setting; rich, colourful cast, headed by a valiant/vulnerable protagonist (Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review))

Book Description

If you loved Henning Mankell's THE WHITE LIONESS and wish THE NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY came with a bit more thriller action, don't miss this award-winning talent.
