Deon Meyer’s Detective Bennie Griesel is back. He’s been sober for 602 days. But his is the kind of job that drags the best of men down. Add the high-profile and bizarre murder of celebrity internet entrepreneur, Ernst Richter, and the pressure piles on Bennie, threatening to knock him down and destroy him.
I chatter to Meyer, the master of crime fiction in South Africa, and one of the best in the world (if you don’t believe me just Google his name and see what comes up from some of the most prominent reviewers at elite publications). Is there more Bennie Griesel to come? Or, could the writer be looking at bringing us more on someone else?
