9780340822661: Devil's Peak

From rising South African thriller writer Deon Meyer, a gripping suspense novel about revenge, forgiveness, and the race to catch a trained killer.
A young woman makes a terrible confession to a priest. An honorable man takes his own revenge for an unspeakable tragedy. An aging inspector tries to get himself sober while taking on the most difficult case of his career. From this beginning, Deon Meyer weaves a story of astonishing complexity and suspense, as Inspector Benny Griessel faces off against a dangerous vigilante who has everything on his side, including public sympathy.
A gruesome abuse case has hit the newsstands, and one man has taken it upon himself to stand up for the children of Cape Town. When the accused is found stabbed through the heart by spear, it's only the beginning of a string of bloody murders - and of a dangerous dilemma for detective Griessel. The detective is always just one step behind as someone slays the city's killers. But the paths of Griessel and the avenger collide when a young prostitute lures them both into a dangerous plan - and the two find themselves with a heart-stopping problem that no system of justice could ever make right.

Review :

“Vance successfully conveys every moment of despair and elation. But it’s near the novel’s end—when the plot strands connect in a suspenseful and violent confrontation—that Vance pulls out all the stops, adding a notable finishing touch to this compelling presentation.”
      —Publishers Weekly

(Publishers Weekly)

“Knife-edge suspense delineates the thin line between justice and revenge, murder and retribution, in this gripping audio experience superbly performed by Booklist’s 2008 ‘Voice of Choice’ reader Simon Vance. Highly recommended.”
      ―Wisconsin Bookwatch

(Library Journal)

“Although [the principal] three characters exhibit extreme anguish and pain, Vance never shies away from expressing their respective emotions and revealing their distinct personalities. Without resorting to caricature, he does a good job with minor characters as well, and handles escalating events in stride. Filled with suspense, social commentary, and well-drawn characters, this story is the whole package.”
       Booklist



“Simon Vance slides from vulnerable masculinity to cool sensuality, never upstaging the author’s craftsmanship. The resultant amalgam eclipses the plot’s violence to produce a literary jewel for fans of crime, mysteries, and knockout writing.”
      —Library Journal [starred review]
