Fast-paced, powerful, tender and suspenseful, Thirteen Hours is a blisteringly good novel from one of the major crime writers on the world stage. 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 his profession, and now he must concentrate on staying sober and mentoring the next generation of crime fighters - from the many ethnic backgrounds that make up South Africa. But when an American backpacker disappears in Capetown, panicked politicians know who they have to call: Benny has just thirteen hours to save the girl, save his career - and crack open a conspiracy which threatens the whole country.

The book is fantastic...
However, it amazes me that kalahari charge R185 for an ebook by a south african author, yet amazon charge $5! Doesn't make sense - all Deon Meyer's are cheaper on an American site!

Great story line and the kind of suspense that keeps you awake at night, reading underneath the bed covers.
