Trackers

Lemmer's first rule is: "Don't get involved." A highly skilled bodyguard with a violent, criminal past, he has settled into a quiet life in Loxton, South Africa, where the rural tranquility has helped to calm his explosive temper. But when a wealthy farmer asks for his help in smuggling a pair of rare black rhinos out of Zimbabwe (where they are murdered for their horns), he has a hard time saying no. Before he knows it, Lemmer is on a small airplane, zipping across the border, an airsickness bag in his hand and a military-grade shotgun at his feet. Soon, he will regret the trip very much.
In "Trackers," internationally-acclaimed thriller writer Deon Meyer expertly weaves together Lemmer's story with a missing person investigation and the machinations of a top intelligence agency. Wielding a phenomenal cast of characters, Meyer delves deep into the people, the breathtaking landscapes, and the politics and problems of this fascinating country. A #1 best-seller in South Africa, "Trackers" is an insightful novel that will take your breath away. mortal danger.

Zitat
Praise for "Trackers" One of "Kirkus Reviews" Best Thrillers of the Year "In his seventh novel, the king of South African crime fiction outdoes himself, packing in enough plot to power three separate novels. ... Aside from masterfully juggling intricate plot details and ripping off some bloodcurdling action scenes, Meyer lays bare more ruthlessly than ever before the chaos that lurks beneath South Africa's new identity ... Meyer has few equals when it comes to combining biting social critique and riveting action scenes. --"Booklist" (starred review) "Meyer's ambition matches his execution in this brilliantly complex standalone thriller set in his native South Africa. ... This powerhouse read, which captures the many facets of modern South Africa, should be the American breakthrough this talented author deserves." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "Award-winning crime fiction author Meyer demonstrates his superb gift for bringing together several disparate plots, striking characters, and vividly drawn scenes of contemporary South Africa, all roaring toward a climax with more than one surprise. ... page-turning suspense and riveting mystery. Highly recommended." --"Library Journal" (starred review) "In his native South Africa ... Meyer is a bigger hitter than his namesake Twilight author, whom he jokes is his cousin. His books regularly slay the vampire romances in the charts, with their gritty realisations of the seamier side of South African life."--"The Bookseller" "The 'King of South African Crime' has spun another intricate tale of intrigue, adventure, and crime."--"Deadly Pleasures" "Meyer's punch lies in the authenticity and depth of his characters. And he has his finger on the pulse of modern South Africa. This is what makes "Trackers" a winner."--"Die Volksblad" (South Africa) "A cleverly constructed story - and a great adventure."--"Beeld" (South Africa) "This is a book you can only put down
