Blood Safari

When the rich and famous visit South Africa, their first port of call is often Body Armor, the personal security company offering two types of protection: the big and intimidating muscle men called Gorillas or the lean and hungry former government body guards, referred to as Invisibles. Lemmer is a freelance Invisible. The tiny and beautiful Emma le Roux, a brand consultant from Cape Town, wants to hire him. He needs the money, so he listens to her story. Lemmer's First General Law is: Don't get involved. But he has never failed as a body guard and he's also grown a little too fond of Emma. He uncovers simmering racial and political tensions, greed, corruption, and a network of eco-terrorists. He follows the leads until he finds what he's after: The people who attacked Emma. Getting to them will be extremely dangerous, and exposing them could have international political implications. If he fails, both he and Emma will end up dead. But Lemmer is sick and tired of being invisible. He goes after them, against all odds. From the Hardcover edition.

"With Deon Meyer you can't go wrong. He's a writer whose work I admire, wait for, and then devour." --Michael Connelly "Right now, of course, Scandinavian crime novels are all the rage, thanks to Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy ... But if you're sick to death of frozen landscapes, punky computer hackers and secret Nazis, you might want to check out South African writer Deon Meyer. ... Meyer sets the usual noir elements (solitary investigator with a past, beautiful and mysterious woman who buys his help) against a post-apartheid South Africa still struggling with racial and cultural divisions and devastating environmental problems ... but his real skill is melding tough-guy tropes into a story that feels different from others you've read, even when it shares familiar elements. I'll read more by Meyer. You should too." --Connie Ogle, "Miami Herald" "This is a big, sexy novel. It's suspenseful, but it's also clever and funny."--Christopher Merrill, "The World" on PRI "Every so often I pick up a book and simply devour it from first page to final paragraph. "Blood Safari" is one of those. It packs in South African history, culture, complexities and a finely woven plot, and even manages a very sweet little romance. If you're looking for a weekend escape, this is your frigate. ... This brilliant book takes us into the riven heart of South Africa where tribal loyalties, including those of the "White Tribe," are in conflict, and where reconciliation is still a hope rather than a reality. The heart of the mystery is a truly evil bit of forgotten history, and Meyer makes it live again in a chilling description. This is a book that both takes you away and makes you think, but most of all, it's a wonderful bit of masterful storytelling, with a gorgeous setting and complex, original characters." --Margaret Cannon, "Globe and Mail" "Meyer is a serious writer who richly deserves the international reputation he has built. "Blood Safari" manages to be b
