Each of these stories there are clever linkages to the others or to characters in other books by Meyer I really enjoyed is style of giving each story an abrupt ending leaving the reader to ponder what appened next The book includes a skeletal map of South Africa in the front pages with the locations described and a glossary with words in Afrikaans with some Shona Sesotho and IsiZulu and Arabic bringing colour and depth to the narrative I admit I found it an intriguing read as I was over there in 2011 and recognised several places I visited or passed through Will definitely read other books by Coming Home (Chesapeake Diaries him Recommended for armchair travellers and mystery buffs everywhere Divided into four books TRACKERS features a large cast of characters and is an incredibly complex work It s intimidating to even begin to think of summarizing what takes place in the book soopefully a brief synopsis will suffice Basically the book focuses on security issues within South Africa The country s intelligence agency is on The Writers Handbook 1999 high alert with information indicating that militant Muslims are planning to a terrorist act There are a few smuggling schemes one involving diamonds and one black rhinos an ill fated romance and various dangerous situations Book 1 focuses on the work being done by the Presidential Intelligence Agency with the lead character being a newlyired report writer named Milla Strachan Various threats to national security are uncovered in particular the group is looking at an operation involving smuggling of diamonds from Zimbabwe which may be used to arm Muslim terrorists There were an incredible number of characters and scenarios introduced I found myself completely lost when I reached page 80 I decided to start reading the book again to try to reduce my confusion Fortunately Book 2 Rock Hounding out of Bishop had of a personal focus and was easier to follow A bodyguard named Lemmer isired by a wealthy farmer to The Long-Legged Fly help move a pair of black rhinos from Zimbabwe where they may be murdered for theirorns There s a lot of action double crosses and a rather fascinating female character introduced in this section of the book Book 3 returns to Milla as well as a suspected CIA agent who seems connected to the terrorist plots It was interesting to see the transformation of Milla from a timid Beneath the Surface (Reluctance, housewife type into an adventuresome womanFinally Book 4 features a private investigator named Mat Joubert who is searching for a man whoas vanished This book barely related to the ones that preceded it in fact it felt like it should The Service have been a novel of its own At the conclusion some connections to the prior segments occur but all in all it did not feel like a cohesive creationI was very disappointed in TRACKERS Itad an ambitious agenda that didn t uite work The structure of the narrative was extremely confusing It was impossible to keep track of the Enlightened (Red Flags, huge cast of characters I kept searching for the unifying connections between all of the plots but there were very few to be made The other books that I ve read by Meyerave been uniformly excellent and I still eagerly await future works despite my reaction to this book Once I discovered Deon Meyer I purchased five of Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks his books in succession This review is for all five of them Meyer s work is of outstanding uality Heas an intimate knowledge of Cape Town and South Africa in general His grasp of the undercurrents in the widely diverse society of this troubled country is exceptional Interesting characters

Are short sentences from Louis Liebenberg s THE ART OF TRACKING After all this book is about tracking animal tracking surveillance and detective tracking Okay now you ave itOf all Meyer s books this I Am Food has the most global of contexts ultimately It is surely the most exciting The fat lady doesn t sing either she whispers Meyer captures the flavour of post apartheid South Africa so well inis novels the changing social engagements between a wide variety of people Trackers mixes up white farmers Zimbabwean South African mercenaries Muslim extremists and a whole lot in a complex plot which is recent and feels like it touches many of the issues we read about in the daily newspapers The ending is rather unsatisfying I won t give away why but the mix of people who meet in such a variety of situations throughout the book kept me engaged Because it takes place in current South Africa it is familiar and revealing of so much of what is not directly said in the daily papers Three stars only because of the ending otherwise would be 35 or 4 I Clotilda hadn t planned to read this book but came across it in my local library andaving read some of the author s other work took it out on a whim This is an ambitious novel comprising 3 separate but interlocking stories each based around a main character and each based on the theme of tracking The three main characters are Milla Strachan a Mokee Joe Recharged (Mokee Joe, housewife who escapes an abusive relationship and gets a low level job with a Government Intelligence Agency Lemmer a professional bodyguard on a job that involves transporting endangered rhinos from Zimbabwe to South Africa andired because of the danger from poachers and Mat Joubert a former Police Superintendent turned PI investigating a missing person case Within the 3 main strands there are a Little Beach Street Bakery: A Novel host of subplots with a varied cast of colourful characters On the whole I found the Milla strand to be the weakest of the three with a fairly implausible plot but the author successfully creates a air of tension during the Lemmer storyline and the Joubert strand which forms the last uarter of the book kept me intrigued as toow the storylines would come togetherI only discovered Deon Meyer s work uite recently and Incest Tales 5 have been readingis books in the wrong order Both Lemmer and Joubert The Search For Maggie Hare have I believe appeared in earlier novels and I could probablyave done with reading those first to No, No, Charlie Rascal have built up knowledge of the characters In particular Lemmer seems an interesting character and at some point I will probably read the novel that first introducedim Meyer s books are written in Afrikaans but the English translations do a fine job in creating a sense of the locations involved and in conveying the linguistic richness of the country with South African English borrowing words liberally from Afrikaans as well as the country s other languages Deon Meyer is one of my favourite thriller writers combining fast paced suspense with authentic South African flavourIn contrast with Little Violets Family Perversions his other novels I read most of them this one is unfortunately weaker The different threads are too far apart from each other and when they finally connect it is uite loosely and somewhat rushed No matter I ll read whatevere ll write next Many thrillers are about saving تهران پایتخت دویست ساله-مجموعه مقالات humanity not necessarily inhabiting it Maverickeroes are replicated from types previously established about saving Fap for the Mothman humanity not necessarily inhabiting it Maverickeroes are replicated from types previously established classic iconic stories Villains are cut from generic barbaric cloth the psychopathic and gruesome the better Character and language are sacrificed for plot and standard themes and the admirable eroine or noble anti eroine saves the world

Long before I started recording the books I d read and writing reviews I read my first Deon Meyer novel called Heart of the Hunter It was a tremendous introduction to South African fiction rich with characters strong and brave written with such specific local color one could be nowhere else on earth I now grab Meyer s new books whenever a bookstore is wise enough to stock them and recommend them to anyone who likes international mystery fictionIn this latest offering Meyers takes on a plot thick with international terrorism diamond and animal smuggling and gang warfare He reprises or invokes old faces private investigator Mat Joubert retired bad boy and private security bodyguard Lemmer Lukas Becker archeologist and bruiser with a eart of gold Benny Griessel policeman extraordinaire We are introduced to a new character that we Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica? hope to see again Cornelia Johanna van Jaarsveld better known as the animal tracker Flea It is a lot to assimilate but Meyer manages The final third of the book is riveting and exhibits Meyer s great skill writing a fast paced story uniue with characters that matter to usThis big book is almost an embarrassment of riches many threads stories within stories lots of characters It couldave been three separate novels though they all tied together at the end In my ebook version the first one Rich Men, Single Women hundred pages set the scene for an international terrorism plot but do not display Meyer s great skills at characterization The reaader must not loseope because the rest of the book is Twice Retired hallmark Meyer I perhaps wouldave encouraged greater editing on the background terror plot while I understand the reason for it It was perhaps detailed than necessary and certainly less interesting It would Ten Twentieth-Century Poets have taken some effort to shorten the plot explication whileighlighting Milla the character who later plays a pivotal role In any case far be it from me to withhold praise from Deon Meyer who can be masterful in sharing South Africa with us As an added bonus Meyer s website In the Days of the Comet Seventeen Short Stories (Works of H.G. Wells 10) has photographs posted by the author that show the localese describes in the book titled Spoor in the Afrikaans edition In case you ve never been to South Africa this is a good opportunity to visualize the landscape Meyer describes in Period Power his novels Many thrillers are about savingumanity not necessarily inhabiting it Maverick eroes are replicated from types previously established in classic iconic stories Villains are cut from generic barbaric cloth the psychopathic and gruesome the better Character and language are sacrificed for plot and standard themes and the admirable eroine or noble anti Until Again heroine saves the world Gosh with theundreds of thrillers published each year month the Jesus Calling human race is lucky to be aliveEnter the intelligence and nuance of South African novelist Deon Meyer whose arresting thrillers open and close with crackle and character The plot doesn t proceed without the evanescence and development ofis mosaic cast Each primary protagonist of the three distinct stories in TRACKERS as an enigmatic personality a moral imperative and palpable inner conflicts and Meyer winds the three plots into a robust and ropy overlap Plot and story move in tandem with character and discovery is united with exposureCharacters are the key to open every dark path and locked password The veld shimmers you ll be Wiki ing the Great Karoo and the black rhino You won t want it to end That s assured you will be breathless for for the next page to end That s assured you will be breathless for for the next page subseuent chapter the following installment Meyer created a ybrid of stand alone and series a few characters from former novels and at least one that
