    Divided into four “books” TRACKERS features a large cast of characters and is an incredibly complex work It’s intimidating to even begin to think of summarizing what takes place in the book so hopefully a brief synopsis will suffice Basically the book focuses on security issues within South Africa The country’s

This thriller features a housewife running from years of domestic abuse a bodyguard hired t. Long before I started recording the books I d read and writing reviews I read my first Deon Meyer novel called Heart of the Hunter It was a tremendous introduction to South African fiction rich with characters strong and brave written with such specific local color one could be nowhere else on earth I now grab Meyer s new books whenever a bookstore is wise enough to stock them and recommend them to anyone who likes international mystery fictionIn this latest offering Meyers takes on a plot thick with international terrorism diamond and animal smuggling and gang warfare He reprises or invokes old faces private investigator Mat Joubert retired bad boy and private security bodyguard Lemmer Lukas Becker archeologist and bruiser with a heart of gold Benny Griessel policeman extraordinaire We are introduced to a new character that we hope to see again Cornelia Johanna van Jaarsveld better known as the animal tracker Flea It is a lot to assimilate but Meyer manages The final third of the book is riveting and exhibits Meyer s great skill writing a fast paced story uniue with characters that matter to usThis big book is almost an embarrassment of riches many threads stories within stories lots of characters It could have been three separate novels though they all tied together at the end In my ebook version the first one hundred pages set the scene for an international terrorism plot but do not display Meyer s great skills at characterization The reaader must not lose hope because the rest of the book is hallmark Meyer I perhaps would have encouraged greater editing on the background terror plot while I understand the reason for it It was perhaps detailed than necessary and certainly less interesting It would have taken some effort to shorten the plot explication while highlighting Milla the character who later plays a pivotal role In any case far be it from me to withhold praise from Deon Meyer who can be masterful in sharing South Africa with us As an added bonus Meyer s website has photographs posted by the author that show the locales he describes in the book titled Spoor in the Afrikaans edition In case you ve never been to South Africa this is a good opportunity to visualize the landscape Meyer describes in his novels
