When Captain Benny Griessel is called in to investigate a multiple homicide, it pushes him close to his breaking point. A former friend and detective colleague has shot his wife and two daughters then killed himself. Benny wants out - out of his job, his home, and his relationship with his singer girlfriend, Alexa. He moves into a hotel and starts drinking again.
But his help is required to investigate a high-profile murder of a graphic designer and MD of a new tech start-up whose body was discovered buried in the sand dunes north of Cape Town. Can Benny pull together the strands of his life in time to catch the killer?

Will Benna make it through the crisis?

Would you consider the audio edition of Icarus to be better than the print version?

We don't know. Why don't we know if Benna can solve the crime and salve his soul? Because Part Two will NOT DOWNLOAD. After phone calls and emails this problem is still on-going. I have given up and bought the hardback - because Benny Griessel is worth it!

Would you recommend Icarus to your friends? Why or why not?

Buy the hardback - don't download until it is sure that both part one and two will work!

What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Everything! No one can roll their 'R's better than Saul Reichlin.

Don't buy, it's faulty

What would have made Icarus better?

If the download had been the 13 hours it should have been, instead of the 7.5 it is. Customer services have been aware of the problem for 10 days now and it's still not fixed, but the title is still on sale.

Would you ever listen to anything by Deon Meyer again?

Not from Audible, I've cancelled my membership

What didn’t you like about Saul Reichlin’s performance?
