Praise for Deon Meyer
Compelling, action-packed and fraught with emotion. At its heart it is a powerful exploration of humanity at its best and worst and bears favourable comparison with landmarks of the genre such as Stephen King's The Standand Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Simply stunning.
Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage. Great stuff.
Emotional and atmospheric...There are shades of Cormac McCarthy's superb The Road, but FEVER grips even more.
The undisputed champion of South African crime. Meyer grabs you but the throat and never lets you go
Praise for The Last Hunt
Meyer weaves a web of intrigue, deception thrills and violence in as good a murder mystery/police procedural as you're likely to read. The richly drawn characters are flesh and blood and the plots all too realistic... quite brilliant
From its startling opening to its tense and thrilling conclusion, Deon Meyer's The Last Hunt takes you on a whirlwind safari across two continents. In the whole of the Benny Griessel series so far, the stakes have never been higher or the odds so much against
The Last Hunt is magnificent! Crime writing at its very best.
Geopolitically complex, richly populated, and textured... a terrific book, abounding with South African - and French - flavor, political and procedural sophistication, and characters you'd want to have a dop with. (Afrikaans for a drink; linguistic riches abound here as well!)
Mr Meyer's humane and engaging characters are indeed among "the best of the best"
