Devil's Peak by Deon Meyer

Devil's Peak

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.

Extract

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.
