Review

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER (South Africa)

"With Deon Meyer you can't go wrong. He's a writer whose work I admire, wait for and then devour."
— Michael Connelly

“In his seventh novel, the king of South African crime fiction outdoes himself. . . . Aside from masterfully juggling intricate plot details and ripping off some bloodcurdling action scenes, Meyer lays bare more ruthlessly than ever before the chaos that lurks beneath South Africa’s new identity. . . . Meyer has few equals when it comes to combining biting social critique and riveting action scenes.”
Booklist (starred review)
 
“Meyer’s ambition matches his execution in this brilliantly complex stand-alone thriller set in his native South Africa. . . . This powerhouse read, which captures the many facets of modern South Africa, should be the American breakthrough this talented author deserves.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Award-winning crime fiction author Meyer demonstrates his superb gift for bringing together several disparate plots, striking characters, and vividly drawn scenes of contemporary South Africa, all roaring toward a climax with more than one surprise. . . . Page-turning suspense and riveting mystery. Highly recommended.”
Library Journal (starred review)

"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

"If you want a glimpse of the soul of the new South Africa in all its glory, and with all the gory details of its problems  and corruption, Meyer is your man."
—The Guardian

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steele Curry on Oct. 30 2011
Format: Paperback
Trackers clearly demonstrates that Meyer is the best of the best of today's mystery/thriller authors. This is a powerful novel with super characterization, compelling pacing and vivid settings.

Trackers contains a multi-dimensional cast of fascinating characters, many of whom have appeared in the author's prior six novels, that intersects through plot lines involving espionage, international terrorism, smuggling, criminal gangs and the workings of a private eye. A number of the individuals and groups featured in Trackers are engaged in the act of tracking different things that are important in their lives while having to content with the consequences of unforeseeable events. Throughout, it is obvious that the author is a fan of Nassin Nicholas Taleb's non-fiction book, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable.

While Trackers is set in South Africa, there is a global or universal dimension to most of the novel. The first main character, Milla Strachan, flees an abusive husband and teenage son to try to regain control over her life. Milla takes a position at an unnamed government agency that turns out to be a department of the Presidential Intelligence Agency whose mission is to track a Muslin terrorist group with ties to al-Qaeda. Milla later strikes out on her own with an international smuggler of artifacts.

The second main character, simply known as Lemmer, is hired to bodyguard a shipment of two black rhinos, being smuggled into South Africa from Zimbabwe for a wealthy Afrikaaner farmer. These "Hook Lip" rhinos are fast becoming extinct. Accompanying the rhinos is Flea van Jaarsveld, posing as a veterinarian, but actually a professional tracker with her own undisclosed agenda.

EXCELLENT WRITER PRODUCES AN EXCELLENT NOVEL Jan. 27 2013
By B. Winkelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I must confess that Deon Meyer is one of my favorite writers. I liked this book a lot, but... It has three protagonists and therefore is more or less divided into three unequal parts that merge into one. Meyer's novels always include an abundance of characters, and in this case each of the three character's separate stories has lots of characters. As a result, I sometimes found it difficult to keep track of who was who. The book moves along fast and is otherwise a delight to read, hard to put down.
Enjoyable Read Dec 2 2012

Just as the title says. Was looking for something different to read to escape a little bit of the same old. I enjoyed the book.
