Reviews

Meyer, who writes in Afrikaans, is far and away the best crime writer in South Africa. The action is as exciting as any reader of thrillers has a right to demand. The writing is fluent and coherent and full of insight into the problems of South Africa. As Meyer writes, money and poverty and greed do not lie well together. But they make a hell of a thriller. - GuardianPulsating and gripping. - Sunday Times Meyer is a serious writer who richly deserves the international reputation he has built. BLOOD SAFARI manages to be both an exciting read and an eye-opening portrait of a nation with problems perhaps even more complex and agonizing than our own. - Washington PostBLOOD SAFARI is my first exposure to the man billed by his publishers as the "king of South African crime thrillers". For once the publicity spinners are not guilty of hyperbole -- Meyer is simply excellent . . . Lemmer is too good a character to be a one-novel phenomenon. He is a sardonic, accurate observer of South African foibles, especially those of the Afrikaner. It is all rendered with enough wry, dry humour to make the reader laugh out loud. - Business Day Meyer's stellar stand-alone thriller delivers muscular prose with a hero to match. - Publishers WeeklyIn his signature style, Meyer delivers a stinging critique of contemporary South African society by vivifying the tensions between native Africans, conservationists, and corporate profiteers . . . the crisp action scenes are never less than thrilling. A solid addition to the prizewinning crime novelist's growing body of work. - BooklistThis is a detective story/thriller that really delivers: an extremely well-constructed, intelligent plot; a committed political and social stance; and a genuine emotional engagement with minor as well as main characters. - EurocrimeThis 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. - Globe and Mail
