Some would call Detective Benny Griessel a legend. Others would call him a drunk. Either way, he has trodden on too many toes over the years ever to reach the top of the promotion ladder, and now he concentrates on staying sober and mentoring the new generation of crime fighters – mixed race, Xhosa and Zulu.

But when an American backpacker disappears in Capetown, panicked politicians know who to call: Benny has just thirteen hours to save the girl, save his career – and crack open a conspiracy which threatens the whole country.

A potent, suspenseful thriller, and a brilliant portrait of life in the country that will host the 2010 World Cup.

Review This Product

Wed, 27 Oct 2010 | Review by: Jean-Philippe A

Deon Meyer is a most gifted crime writer, although both "Blood Safari" and "Thirteen Hours" have disappointed. "Thirteen Hours" comprises two storylines, one of which does not hold nearly as well as the other. It results in a somewhat fragmented narrative and a disappointing tying-together of the two stories via a chance occurrence. Unfortunately not in the league of "Devil's Peak" or "Dead Before Dying", although Meyer's visceral writing style leaves no doubt as to his world-class prowess.
