I picked up TH because it seemed like a fun sexy reading and guess what? It was. I enjoyed those hours in the elevator, they were funny and hot and you could see how could it be in the future. I really liked Laurel. I think I liked her the most. Thirteen Hours Review — Redux I attended a Deon Meyer book signing this weekend and it played a big part in my decision to expand this review.
South Africa is a country with eleven official languages, which should give you some idea of the cultural diversity. Why is this important? Meyer takes great snapshots of Thirteen Hours Review — Redux I attended a Deon Meyer book signing this weekend and it played a big part in my decision to expand this review.
Meyer takes great snapshots of the inner workings of SA culture in his writing. He also happens to be quite a nice guy. Original Review — Verbatim Afrikaans.
Media and political interest in these cases is high. Benny, whom we know from other Deon Meyer novels, is under terrific pressure to resolve these cases and find the missing American girl. Meanwhile he's struggling to stay sober and win back his wife. And Benny is only in charge of these cases as an advisor. Most of the veteran Afrikaans cops have been reassigned. The new black and colored detectives are keen but green.
It's Benny's job to help them learn and make sure they solve their cases. Benny and the reader get deeply interested in these young recruits: Mbali, the fat, bossy Zulu woman cop with a sharp tongue and an even sharper intellect; Vusi, the soft-spoken Xhosa cop whose main problem is being too polite; and Dekker, the colored cop who's too attractive to women for his own good.
The racial politics in SAPS are fascinating. The interrogations of suspects are riveting. The final confrontation between Benny and the criminals is a threat to one's blood pressure. Even though it has characters from other books, the plot is so strong, it can be read as a stand-alone. Mass Market Paperback Verified download.
I read three of Deon Meyer's books a while ago but lost interest after the third per boring interactions with the characters.
Hunting for a good mysteries, absent all the "formula writing stuff " of too many writers today, is becoming more challenging.
I decided to check out Meyer's current books; bought two: Devil's Peak is better but that story content will be eroded if this one is read first. Meyer wrote both books by constantly changing from one set of circumstances with different players to next; you assume they all merge at some point. I'm not a fan of that approach and found in this book the story line difficult to track at times because of that.
Also, like several other reviewers, I found this book to drag in several places; so, I; too, skipped paragraphs and felt I missed nothing.
I found it was educational and, positively, different. Per the situation of the main character Benny Griessel , this book builds off of events in Devil's Peak and references key events in that book; that's fine here. However per the above, it definitely detracts from some of the suspense in Devil's Peak if read out of order as I did. Per my rating: Meyer developed a decent storyline hence the three rating and not a lower one per the above and it was "different".
Still, there was too much in the "same song, fifth verse" sense of things. And, some scenarios were totally unrealistic.
For example, a young woman tourist who is a target for ruthless killers and the police trying to save her constantly evades all of them in a place she doesn't know when she was only on foot and in thin running clothes, needs water and food, most often only by hiding in different sets of bushes each time.. Devil's Peak was FAR better..

Some of the best crime fiction is rooted in contemporary events. Can everything change in less than a day? She's a person full of surprises that Dana wasn't expecting in her life. Benny Griessel, aging alcoholic Cape Town detective, has been tasked with mentoring less experienced detectives.
And although I am typically put off by cell phone bits in a novel, Meyer's snappy insertions actually increase the story's tensile strength.
Meyer delivers with sizzle in this dual-crime novel; his terse prose lances the pages, and the pitch-perfect pace purrs and thrums.
