Read from January 09 to 20, 2013

This is an excellent espionage thriller that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride through the recent history of South Africa. Like all of Meyer's books, he uses multiple POV to set up the story. That takes roughly 40% of the book; then, it takes off like an impala. The multiple POV allows Meyer to develop some terse and tense intercutting; he handles it like Hitchcock. And the hints for the twists he drops neatly, and the reader rolls right over in the speed of page turning. Pay attention, catch the hints, then salivate until the meaning is clear.
