Description

When Deon Meyer's Thirteen Hours won the Barry Award for Best Thriller, one of international crime fiction's most electrifying writers finally began to get the American attention he so richly deserves. With seven novels published in twenty languages (all available on audio from HighBridge), Meyer has set countless hearts racing with gripping stories that mix the violence, politics, natural beauty, and history of his native South Africa. In Thirteen Hours, homicide detective Bennie Griessel struggled to solve the murder of an American girl, find her missing friend, and avoid drinking again, all in a single day. In Seven Days, Griessel is given another nearly impossible task. Two police officers have been shot, and the department has received an e-mail from the shooter alleging a cover up in a cold case. He threatens more violence until the case is solved. The case in question is the murder of Hanneke Sloet, an ambitious lawyer stabbed to death in her luxury apartment. There's no apparent motive and no leads, just a set of nude photographs and an ex-boyfriend with a rock-solid alibi. Then more policemen are shot and the pressure mounts. Can Bennie solve the case and stay sober? Seven Days is a gripping adventure by a fantastic writer at the top of his game.

Professional reviews

"Deon Meyer takes listeners out of their comfort zones with this complex story of murder and revenge in modern South Africa. British narrator Simon Vance confidently takes on the challenge of delivering the intertwined stories of a socialite's murder and a mysterious sniper who shoots police to encourage them to solve the crime. SEVEN DAYS is the latest Meyer book featuring Detective Bennie Griessel, who sounds like he gargles with glass. Vance breezes through names and places unfamiliar to Western ears. The terms are so foreign that the author includes a glossary. The characters are colorful and wonderfully human. Vance lets us feel the pain of the overweight female detective who is abused by her colleagues, the confusion of the old detective who is befuddled by technology, and the insanity of the cop-killer.
