Some would call Detective Benny Griessel a legend. Others would call him a drunk.
Either way, he has trodden on too many toes over the years ever to reach the top of the promotion ladder, and now he concentrates on staying sober and mentoring the new generation of crime fighters: mixed race, Xhosa, and Zulu. But when an American backpacker disappears in Capetown, panicked politicians know who to call: Benny has just 13 hours to save the girl, save his career - and crack open a conspiracy which threatens the whole country.
“Best-selling South African novelist Meyer delivers another exciting if brutally violent crime novel.... Meyer also steeps his novel in the day-to-day life of a country still reeling in the wake of radical transition.” (Booklist)
“With... cliff-hanging suspense, and shocking plot twists, Meyer again has produced a winner. Highly recommended.” (Library Journal)
“Deon Meyer is one of the unsung masters. Thirteen Hours proves he should be on everyone’s reading list. This book is great!” (Michael Connelly)
