Lemmer is a professional bodyguard. Silent, invisible, he never gets involved. Emma le Roux is convinced she's seen her brother on the news as a suspect in the recent killing of four poachers. But her brother is supposed to have died 20 years ago.
When le Roux hires Lemmer to watch her back while she goes looking for answers, it becomes clear someone wants to keep them in the dark. And when that someone tries to murder them both, for once in his life Lemmer steps out of the shadows.
"Top-notch." (Kirkus Reviews)
“A big, sexy novel . . . two compelling characters, Lemmer and Emma le Roux—but there’s another character, and that’s contemporary South Africa itself. You’ve got race, reconciliation, resentment, environment, tourism—they’re all propelling this novel along.” (The World, NPR)
“Meyer’s stellar stand-alone thriller delivers muscular prose with a hero to match.” (Publishers Weekly)
