'Smuggling, missing persons and an edgy post-apartheid South Africa interlace in a riveting crime novel ... This is the author's most accomplished novel to date. Following the thrilling plot of his bestselling Thirteen Hours was always going to be a challenge but he's visibly gained confidence, showing his technical skill and handling the different sections of the new book with effortless ease. It's a mesmerising read, and a startling revelation at the very end suggests that we haven't heard the last of these engaging characters.'
The Sunday Times
'How fulfilling the rewards are for those seeking crime fiction with real texture and intelligence ... The author presents an unsparing picture of social divisions in post-apartheid South Africa ... But perhaps his key achievement is the astutely drawn trio: the conflicted bodyguard, streetwise but falling for a major deception; the young woman fleeing a desperately unhappy marriage and discovering something that changes her perception of herself; and the ex-cop, finding that the incendiary reserves of violence in his personality are nearer to the surface than he thought. TRACKERS is a sprawling, invigorating and socially committed crime novel.'
'An ambitious, multi-threaded tale ... comprehensively pulling the reader into the melee of modern South Africa ... this is a book that tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation.'
Times Literary Supplement
'Meyer is the leading chronicler of South Africa, and his latest novel shows off his technical skill... a dazzling performance.'
