Six-foot five-inch Thobela “Tiny” Mpayipheli was once a feared assassin and freedom fighter, trained by the Stasi and KGB. In post-apartheid South Africa, he’s happily working in a garage. But Tiny’s quiet domestic life is interrupted by a desperate plea from the daughter of a trusted old friend: he’s being held hostage after taking an incriminating hard drive and needs help. Tiny’s old training kicks in, and as he races across the South African landscape on a stolen BMW motorcycle to the rendezvous point, he is pursued by several interested and hostile forces, including South Africa’s Presidential Intelligence Unit. None of them have a clue what they’re up against.

Professional reviews

"Simon Vance turns in a stellar performance narrating the story of a former assassin and anti-apartheid warrior now struggling to find his way from the violence of his past to peace with his common-law wife and her son. Vance beautifully captures the rich voice of the oversized protagonist, Thobela "Tiny" Mpayipheli, a KGB alum who goes on the run when a favor for a friend runs afoul of the South African government. Vance convincingly creates the accents and rhythms of South African speech and moves effortlessly between major characters, including a rage-filled male soldier, an angst-filled female reporter, and a little boy. Deon Meyer's well-turned story and Vance's top-notch narration make this a compelling listen. G.S.D. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
