    Description

    Bennie Griessel may be losing his battle with alcohol, but he still knows enough to head up the police team tracking "Artemis", a vigilante killer who targets child murderers.

    The killer is, in fact, Thobela Mpayipheli, a former freedom fighter robbed of everything by the murder of his son. And when Griessel's daughter is kidnapped, his world and Thobela's converge towards a devastating climax.

    Commentaires

    "Complex, finely wrought characters, keen psychological insight and a compelling plot lift this crime novel from South African author Meyer." ( Publishers Weekly)

    Great Book

    I enjoyed this book from the narrator to the story. Good charaters and detail. There was swearing but I thought it was in context and not over done.

    fantastic thriller, read by a master.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I rave about this writer. He is so smart at constructing a plot and making the details speak about socio political issues without any ponderous statements. It all happens through the voices of the characters, often with wonderful humour.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love Bennie Griesel. More of him please

    Any additional comments?

    More Deon Meyer please!
    Saul Reichlin is wonderful, so accomplished at getting the nuances of accents and characters.

    Energetic suspence

    Loved the story and the structure of the tale. The twists in the base story was good and the heart and soal of the Bennie Griesel is amazing.

    Exceptional Book, but not for the easily offended.

    A surprisingly good book. Great imperfect and believable characters. For me the South African location and politics was somewhat exotic and a welcome change from your typical locations. Saul Reichlin's narration goes beyond excellent with believable accents for the characters. Saul is by far my favourite Narrator and in my opinion is king of his craft.

    The suspense in this story hold you captive

    What made the experience of listening to Devil's Peak the most enjoyable?

    Saul Reichlin do an exilent job by the manner he read the story. Deon Meyer is a writer who knowns how to keep you attention by the why he presents the story.
    I enjoy his work very much

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    You dont know whats going to happen , you think it will happen in a certain way , then he surprize you that the events unfolding happens very different than you have thougt

    What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the suspense out exelent by the manner he present it to you.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The lady who telling her life story to the vicor , and all the drama that she went through. It made you think how much damage a child gets in a disfuctional house.

    Any additional comments?

    This is an exelent work of art, thanks Deon Meyer for your work. Saul Reichlin for presenting this work in an exelent manner

    Don't go there!!

    Way to much swearing and profanity. It is not worth it. The narrator breaks the book where the author failed to break it.
