Nancy Richards sits down with Deon Meyer.
Deon Meyer seems to be the name on everyone’s lips at the moment. The M-Net TV series, Trackers, which was based on Meyer’s novel of the same name, has received high praise from local audiences. But before the silver screen, there was Benny Griessel, the veteran cop that readers have been following since he first graced the pages of Meyer’s 2004 novel Devil’s Peak. The Last Hunt (Hodder & Stoughton) is the next instalment in the Griessel series and its a page-turner.
