"I'll shoot one policeman every day, until you arrest the murderer of Hanneke Sloet," says the e-mail to the South African Police Services. And then the sniper turns threat into reality.
Bennie Griessel has to reopen the Sloet dossier. The case is 40 days old, the trail has gone cold. No motive, no leads, just a set of nude photographs, a very complicated business transaction, and immense pressure from the brass, the media, and the relentless, unfathomable sniper. And through it all, Griessel has to keep his love interest, the alcoholic, former singing sensation Alexa Barnard, sober for her comeback concert, cope with his daughter's neanderthal boyfriend, his son's shenanigans, and his new partner's idiosyncrasies--and try to tame his own all-consuming lust for the soothing powers of the bottle. Seven days of hell.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Deon Meyer:"Deon Meyer is one of the unsung masters." —Michael Connelly "Just as the works of James Ellroy and Carl Hiaasen dig beneath the glitter of Hollywood and South Beach, respectively, to reveal a nasty, fetid underside, these books [by Meyer and other profiled African crime novelists] rip away images of the Sahara and safaris and go beyond nightly news pictures of deprivation." —The Washington Post "Meyer is the latest addition to Random House Canada's World of Crime imprint, which is turning into a treasure trove of great writing." —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail "Meyer has moved into the John le Carré class.... Trackers is a great thriller and a fine novel of characterisation." —Shots Magazine
