About the Author:

Deon Meyer is an internationally renowned crime writer who also works as a journalist and an Internet consultant. He is the author of Heart of the Hunter, Dead at Daybreak, and Dead Before Dying. He lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

Review:

“Vance successfully conveys every moment of despair and elation. But it’s near the novel’s end—when the plot strands connect in a suspenseful and violent confrontation—that Vance pulls out all the stops, adding a notable finishing touch to this compelling presentation.”
      —Publishers Weekly

(Publishers Weekly)

“Knife-edge suspense delineates the thin line between justice and revenge, murder and retribution, in this gripping audio experience superbly performed by Booklist’s 2008 ‘Voice of Choice’ reader Simon Vance. Highly recommended.”
      ―Wisconsin Bookwatch

(Library Journal)

“Although [the principal] three characters exhibit extreme anguish and pain, Vance never shies away from expressing their respective emotions and revealing their distinct personalities. Without resorting to caricature, he does a good job with minor characters as well, and handles escalating events in stride. Filled with suspense, social commentary, and well-drawn characters, this story is the whole package.”
       Booklist



“Simon Vance slides from vulnerable masculinity to cool sensuality, never upstaging the author’s craftsmanship. The resultant amalgam eclipses the plot’s violence to produce a literary jewel for fans of crime, mysteries, and knockout writing.”
      —Library Journal [starred review]
