Publisher's Summary

Op 17 Desember spoel die lyk van Ernst Richter oop in die duine anderkant Parklands - dié Ernst Richter, berugte internet-entrepreneur, baas van die omstrede webwerf Alibi.co.za wat 'n maand gelede so onverklaarbaar en sensasioneel verdwyn het. Selfs in normale omstandighede sou die Valke Bennie Griessel en Vaughn Cupido gesukkel het - by Alibi.co.za lieg almal soos tannetrekkers. Maar omstandighede is nie normaal nie. Want Griessel het weer aan die suip gegaan. En Cupido is verlief. En op 24 Desember begin 'n jong wynboer bieg voor 'n advokaat in Kaapstad, wat die hele saak op sy kop keer. Kersfees sal nooit weer dieselfde wees nie.

Another great Deon Meyer novel

Where does Ikarus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Deon Meyer never disappoints. As I was too impatient to wait for the English translation I listened to Ikarus in Afrikaans. The narrator is excellent and makes the listeners feel like they are part of the story. Every Deon Meyer story I have listened to or read has always ranked as one of my favorites, Ikarus lived up to my expectations.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It kept me thinking who the culprit was and I was pleasantly surprised at the unexpected twist at the end.


What about Nic de Jager’s performance did you like?

He switches effortlessly from English to Afrikaans and back throughout the story and makes me long to be in the Cape. His accent is perfect for the story and I enjoyed listening to him as much as I enjoyed the story


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did, but work, family and pets didn't permit that. For once I didn't mind my lengthy daily commute between my town and work though:)


Any additional comments?

I am almost sad that I didn't wait for the English version as the wait for the next Deon Meyer novel will be long, had I waited for the English translation I would still have the novel to look forward to.
