Thirteen Hours Synopsis

When he puts pressure on the politicians, they know that to protect their country's image, they must find Rachel's hiding place before the killers.

Thirteen Hours Press Reviews

'South African thrillers arrive with racial baggage, and it's a mark of Meyer's talent to see just how well the issues are balanced with a smashing story. Imposing a strict time limit and a tight location on his plot, he ramps up the suspense to an unbearable degree. Best of all, his sharply drawn characters really feel part of the new South Africa, where loyalties and beliefs must always be questioned.'
Financial Times


'What makes this novel so outstanding is its setting... and Meyer's superlative talent for suspense... Above all though, this is a vigorous, exciting novel that combines memorable characters and plot with edge-of-the-seat suspense.'
The Sunday Times

'gripping and suspenseful crime novel set in a violent, post-apartheid South Africa'
Culture Magazine (Sunday Times)

'A cracking read from one of Africa's finest'
Shots ezine
