Publisher's Summary

A housewife running from years of domestic abuse. A bodyguard hired to escort a smuggled rhinoceros. A group of Islamic terrorists based in a quiet residential street. A secret government agency threatened with amalgamation within a bigger department. A retired policeman trying to get used to his new career in the private sector. Each of these strands of a brilliant narrative is populated with superbly-drawn characters, and woven into a stunningly exciting drama by the undisputed king of South African suspense fiction. Not only a heart-pounding thriller, but also a love story and a fabulous kaleidoscopic picture of South African society, this is the finest novel yet from an author whose reputation is growing all around the world.

A bit of a mess

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I suppose if you are heavily into South African politics society it might have more meaning for you.


What could Deon Meyer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The threads needed to interconnect more and have some sort of resolution rather that just hanging.


Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

I had no favourite, I could not get attached to them before the narrative moved on. I particularly disliked the multi-voice sections which were jarring. This should have been a plain reading rather than a cross between dramatisation and audiobook.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trackers?

Everything that did not have any bearing on anything else, i.e. most of the book.


Any additional comments?

I kept listening, expecting all the threads to be drawn together in some clever way but they were just left dangling which was most upsetting.

Enjoyable

I liked this book, I liked the readers, and maybe the accents were not 100%, but I really liked it.
