Devil's Peak

by Deon Meyer

The excitement of Wilbur Smith, the social conscience of John Le Carre and more twists than Agatha Christie. Plus Afrikaaner DI Benny Griessel as a very believable hero - the author thoroughly deserves to become a bestseller.


How do you catch a vigilante? That mattered.
Murder equals motive. What was the assegai man's? The why?
Was there even a simple motive here? Or was he like a serial killer, motive hidden somewhere in the short circuits of faulty neural wiring? So that there was fuck-all, no spoor leading to a source, no strand you could twiddle with and tug on until a bit came loose and you get hold of it and start unravelling.
