Willem Storm, though not a fighter, is both a thinker and a leader, a wise and compassionate man with a vision for a new community that survivors will rebuild from the ruins. And so Amanzi is founded, drawing Storm's "homeless and tempest-tost" - starting with Melinda Swanevelder, whom they rescue from brutal thugs; Hennie Fly, with his vital Cessna plane; Beryl Fortuin and her ragtag group of orphans; and Domingo, the man with the tattooed hand, whom Nico immediately recognizes as someone you want on your side. And then Sofia Bergman arrives, the most beautiful girl Nico has ever seen, who changes everything.
So the community grows, and with each step forward, as resources increase, so do the challenges they must face - not just from the attacks of biker brigands, but also from within. Nico undergoes an extraordinary rite of passage in this brand new world, testing his loyalty to the limits. Looking back later in life, he recounts the traumatic events that led to the greatest rupture of all - the murder of the person he loves most.
Propulsively listenable, Fever is a gripping epic of humanity striving for a noble vision against its basest impulses.

An Exceptional Thriller from a Master Storyteller
Anyone who loves the Scandanavian Mystery/Thriller writers Jussi Adler-Olsen, Arnaldur Indridason, and Jo Nesbo, should add South African Deon Meyer to their list of international authors whose thoroughly engaging stories and flawed, but remarkably likeable characters, make each book a joy to read. All of Mr. Meyer's books, and especially this one, are treasures to be savored and remembered. I've read them all and can't wait for the next one to be published.
