Description
"Deon Meyer's novels explore the complex reality of South Africa . . . they are exciting stories of crime, conflict, and revenge." —The Miami Herald

Blood Safari is a harrowing novel from internationally acclaimed thriller writer Deon Meyer, an expert storyteller whose wickedly fast narratives reveal the heart of his enthralling country.

In Blood Safari, Emma le Roux, a beautiful young woman in Cape Town, sees her brother named on the television news as the prime suspect in the killing of four poachers and a witch doctor. But it can't be possible: Emma's brother is supposed to be dead, having disappeared twenty years ago in Kruger National Park. Emma tries to find out more but is attacked and barely escapes. So she hires Lemmer, a personal security expert, and sets out into the country in search of the truth.

A complicated man with a dishonorable past, Lemmer just wants to do his job and avoid getting personally involved. But as he and Emma search for answers from the rural police, they encounter racial and political tensions, greed, corruption, and violence unlike anything they have ever known.

"With Deon Myer you can't go wrong. He's a writer whose work I admire, wait for, and then devour." —Michael Connelly

        December 20, 2010
        Simon Vance provides an assortment of authentic-sounding Afrikaans accents (think Scottish with a Germanic edge) for this first-class thriller that manages to include South African history and musings on apartheid and the environment without losing a beat of its feverish pacing. Meyer's novel is essentially one relentless chase across South Africa, with hard-boiled bodyguard Martin Lemmer and his beautiful client, Emma le Roux, on the run from a team of paramilitary killers possibly hired by her brother. For Lemmer, the book's narrator, Vance uses a tough, terse delivery that nails the character as a South African version of Lee Child's Jack Reacher. And he's just as on target in crafting variations of his accent for the rest of the cast. Men, women, white, black, friends and foes, Vance has their vocal number. An Atlantic Monthly hardcover.
