South African detective Benny Griessel has one day to solve two murders in the award winning, #1 bestselling thriller—"This book is great!" (Michael Connelly). Winner of the Barry Award for Best Thriller As morning dawns in Cape Town, Det. Capt. Benny Griessel finds himself facing a difficult day. A South African music executive has been shot dead. An American teenager's body has been found on the street, her throat cut. And her friend Rachel Anderson is somewhere in the city, terrified and alone, but hopefully still alive. For both cases, time is short and media attention is high. And while the homicide detective has been sober for 156 days, day 157 is going to be a tough one . . . A #1 bestseller in South Africa, winner of the 2011 Boeke Prize Fanatics Choice Award, and a finalist for the CWA International Dagger, Thirteen Hours is an atmospheric, intensely gripping novel from "a serious writer who richly deserves the international reputation he has built" (The Washington Post). "Deon Meyer is one of the unsung masters. Thirteen Hours proves he should be on everyone's reading list." —Michael Connelly, New York Times–bestselling author of the Harry Bosch novels "A deft storyteller." —Publishers Weekly
