An outstanding writer, and an excellent book. I enjoyed it very much. It was also entertaining to go to a new geographical area: South Africa. Funny how browsing in an airport can lead to new literary adventures. Hope you enjoy it too.
Tiny Mpayipheli, a six foot three giant with a quiet demeanor, once earned his living as a government gun for hire. But now he's moved to the countryside and leads a quiet, ordered life. Then the daughter of an old friend tracks him down, desperate for help. The action begins....
one of the best books I've read in recent years. Set in the new, and still conflicted, South Africa, it features "Tiny", on the surface a gofer for a motorcycle garage, but with a past. And from that past comes a plea for help from a friend from the days of the "struggles" that he cannot ignore.
What a complex, fascinating and enthralling story. Deon Meyer is as good as any USA or Scandinavian author, and far far far more original by far. I'd actually like to shake the guy's hand.
