Featuring: Mat Joubert
Add to Wish List
A brilliantly atmospheric new suspense novel from rising
African thriller writer Deon Meyer about a detective racing
to solve a terrifying series of murders.
Someone in Cape Town has chosen a conspicuous murder weapon-
-a century-old German handgun, with ancient bullets to
match, bullets that tear through flesh and bone. The killer
has a preferred method: one shot to the head and one shot
to the chest, leaving a rapidly rising number of dead. For
Captain Mat Joubert, this might be the last chance to prove
that his life's slow spiral will not pull him under and
sink him at last.
Three men who have nothing in common are killed in an
escalating pattern of violence. As the string of vicious
killings pushes Cape Town toward panic, Joubert is left
scrambling for answers. In this stunning new novel,
breakout crime writer Deon Meyer builds an evocative
portrait of a man at odds with his history--bent on
reclaiming his dignity and determined to find the single
thread that weaves together what is otherwise just an
assortment of strangers, dead by the same hand.
