Publisher's Summary

Why would a mathematics professor from Cambridge University, renting a holiday home outside Cape Town, require a false identity and three bodyguards? And where is he, now that they are dead? The only clue to the bodyguards' murder is the snake engraved on the shell casings of the bullets that killed them.
Investigating the massacre, Benny Griessel and his team find themselves being drawn into an international conspiracy with shocking implications. It seems it is not just the terrorists and criminals of Britain and South Africa who may fear the Professor's work, but the politicians too.
As the body count begins to spiral viciously, Benny must put his new-found love life aside and focus on finding the one person who could give him a break in the case: a teenage pickpocket on the run in the city. But Benny is not the only person hunting for Tyrone Kleinbooi...
Relentlessly suspenseful, topical, hard-hitting and richly rewarding, Cobra is a superb novel from an author who is acclaimed around the world as a brilliant voice in crime fiction.

What the Critics Say

"South Africa is the new Scandinavia when it comes to crime writing, and Deon Meyer 'pulls the reader into the melee of modern South Africa . . . tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation' "(Times Literary Supplement)
"Each new thriller from 'one of the very best crime fiction authors in the world today' (Eurocrime) plunges you into a 'maelstrom of murder investigation, political corruption, racial tension . . . Deon Meyer is a top notch plotter and has created one of the best ensemble (and multi-racial) casts of any modern police procedural series'" (Shots)

Well written and well read

This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to.

South African accents are really hard to replicate, especially those of the various groups within the country. Saul Reichlin absolutely nails it!

Deon Meyer is one of the best thriller writers around and he does not disappoint. I can unreservedly recommend this audiobook
