'The undisputed champion of South African crime. Meyer grabs you but the throat and never lets you go' Wilbur Smith

'From its startling opening to its tense and thrilling conclusion, Deon Meyer's The Last Hunt takes you on a whirlwind safari across two continents. In the whole of the Benny Griessel series so far, the stakes have never been higher or the odds so much against' Peter Robinson

***

A cold case for Captain Benny Griessel and Vaughn Cupido of the Hawks elite police unit - not what they were looking for. And a difficult case, too. The body of Johnson Johnson, ex-cop, has been found beside a railway line. He appears to have jumped from South Africa's - perhaps the world's - most luxurious train, and two suspicious characters seen with him have disappeared into thin air. The regular police have already failed to make progress and others are intent on muddying the waters.

Meanwhile in Bordeaux, Daniel Darret is settled in a new life on a different continent. A quiet life. But his skills as an international hit-man are required one more time, and Daniel is given no choice in the matter. He must hunt again - his prey the corrupt president of his homeland.

Three strands of the same story become entwined in a ferocious race against time - for the Hawks to work out what lies behind the death of Johnson, for Daniel to evade the relentless Russian agents tracking him, for Benny Griessel to survive long enough to take another huge step in his efforts to piece together again the life he nearly destroyed - and finally ask Alexa Bernard to marry him.

The Last Hunt shows one of the great crime writers operating at the peak of his powers.

Praise for The Last Hunt

The undisputed champion of South African crime. Meyer grabs you by the throat and never lets you go

Meyer weaves a web of intrigue, deception thrills and violence in as good a murder mystery/police procedural as you're likely to read. The richly drawn characters are flesh and blood and the plots all too realistic... quite brilliant - Crime Review

From its startling opening to its tense and thrilling conclusion, Deon Meyer's The Last Hunt takes you on a whirlwind safari across two continents. In the whole of the Benny Griessel series so far, the stakes have never been higher or the odds so much against - Peter Robinson

The Last Hunt is magnificent! Crime writing at its very best. - Leye Adenle, author of Easy Motion Tourist

Geopolitically complex, richly populated, and textured... a terrific book, abounding with South African - and French - flavor, political and procedural sophistication, and characters you'd want to have a dop with. (Afrikaans for a drink; linguistic riches abound here as well!) - Air Mail

Mr Meyer's humane and engaging characters are indeed among "the best of the best" - Wall Street Journal

Praise for Deon Meyer

Compelling, action-packed and fraught with emotion. At its heart it is a powerful exploration of humanity at its best and worst and bears favourable comparison with landmarks of the genre such as Stephen King's The Standand Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Simply stunning. - Daily Express

Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage. Great stuff.

Emotional and atmospheric...There are shades of Cormac McCarthy's superb The Road, but FEVER grips even more. - The Times

“A gripping read”

I have a little (well okay a massive) confession to make. Yes yet another one. Although I have several of Deon's books on my every increasing 'to be read' pile, I haven't actually read... More
