From the author of Thirteen Hours - A Sunday Times '100 best crime novels and thrillers since 1945' pick Why would a mathematics professor from Cambridge University, renting a holiday home outside Cape Town, require a false identity and three bodyguards? And where is he, now that they are dead? The only clue to the bodyguards' murder is the snake engraved on the shell casings of the bullets that killed them. Investigating the massacre, Benny Griessel and his team find themselves being drawn into an international conspiracy with shocking implications. It seems it is not just the terrorists and criminals of Britain and South Africa who may fear the Professor's work, but the politicians too. As the body count begins to spiral viciously, Benny must put his new-found love life aside and focus on finding the one person who could give him a break in the case: a teenage pickpocket on the run in the city. But Benny is not the only person hunting for Tyrone Kleinbooi . . . Shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger, COBRA is a relentlessly suspenseful, topical and richly rewarding novel from an author who is acclaimed around the world as a brilliant voice in crime fiction.

  1. Meyer på nytt i toppform
    Christer Palmborg, 24 augusti 2015

    Deon Meyer levererar ännu en gång en spänningsladdad bok med Benny Griessel i huvudrollen. Imponerande hur han gång på gång kan skapa intriger som gör det svårt att lägga ifrån sig boken. Den sydafrikanska miljön ger hans böcker en lite annorlunda ton, den här gången också med politiska undertoner. Deon Meyer delar nu förstaplatsen på min favoritlista med Michael Connelly, något som jag tidigare bedömt som osannolikt.

Deon 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. * <i>Books Live</i> (South Africa) * Tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation. * <i>Times Literary Supplement</i> * Deon Meyer is a top notch plotter and has created one of the best ensemble (and multi-racial) casts of any modern police procedural series. * <i>Shots</i> magazine * Benny is the central character in South African writer Deon Meyer's series of novels, set in Capetown, that grow richer and more sophisticated with each new book. This progression makes COBRA the most dazzling of the bunch. * Toronto Star * 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. * <i>Spectator</i> * Crime fiction with real texture and intelligence. * <i>Independent</i> * Praise for Deon Meyer * . . . *
