"Deon Meyer is one of the unsung masters. "Thirteen Hours" proves he should be on everyone's reading list. This book is great!" --Michael Connelly
""Thirteen Hours" has breathtaking suspense, psychological understanding, and one of the most inspiring detectives ever. Deon Meyer deserves his international reputation."--Thomas Perry
"A smashing story. Imposing a strict time limit and a tight location on his plot, [Meyer] 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"
