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