Ly in the morning and Inspector Griessel has the sort of ay that would have had me cracking under the strain by about half past eight As an experienced The Machine Stops detective he is assigned to mentor younger members of his Department and has to constantly keep switching between two high profile cases that arise on the same morning One involves the murder of a big player in the local Afrikaans music scene the other a search for an American backpacker who is being hunted by local criminals who have already murdered her companion Her frantic flight through the city and Griessel s search for her really is edge of the seat stuff I particularly liked the characters created by the author for the junioretectives each of whom has their own strengths and weaknesses and Meyer also raws a convincing picture of the racial and gender politics of South Africa where everyone is conscious of their group identity and where any ambiguous remark can be interpreted as group identity and where any ambiguous remark can be interpreted as eliberate racial slightA really excellent thriller I ll certainly read of this author s work in the future Excellent thriller The best I ve read so for from this author The book gives a good insight in south african society and racial problems There are uite a few plot twists and the book is suspenseful till the end A gem of a mystery Read it after a number of serious reads and enjoyed very much A very fast paced and well crafted mystery Bonus was the virtual tour of CapeTown I am going to read of this writerHighly recommend to all this book is good and engaging and fun and informative it has the mainstay ish worn out alcoholic cop and the mainstay ish young female victim but unlike in most american thrillers the story is complicated by the interracial Academia dos Anjos (Redenção Livro 2) dynamics of post apartheid south africa also the female victim not the one they kill right at the beginning the other one totally kicks ass iidn t know many things about south africa and now i know some they are pretty basic things like that afrikaans is a language and those who speak it are called afrikaners i thought the language was called afrikaan and the people afrikaans it was pretty umb of me not to know this but what can i say i m not proud i also know that there are at least two black african ethnic groups the xhosas and the zulus yeah i idn t know that either i think i want to see cape town it sounds gorgeous from a natural point of view and interesting from an urban point of view the Life with My Idiot Family downside is that it seems hot as hell but the book is set in january so i can hope that the winters will be coolers mostly though i couldn t put the bookown it s 500 some pages but it went so fast my ays went smoothly because i knew i had this book to come back to i m going to read all of this guy s books at the end i ll know so much about south africa i will know all about the various temperatures in the various
