About this book

Orion (2013) | Crime & Thriller

Deon Meyer

Human & Rousseau

An antiques dealer is burned with a blow torch, then killed, execution-style – a single shot to the back of the head with an M16. The contents of the safe are missing and the only clues are a scrap of blank paper and the unusual weapon used, the choice of mercenaries, not burglars.

Now ex-cop Zatopek ”Zed” van Heerden has fourteen days in which to fill in the blanks in this dead man's past – a past which only seems to begin in 1983 . . . Set against the backdrop of a society on the verge of breakdown, Orion spins the reader from the lush suburbs of Cape Town, to a gripping climax in the searing heat of the veld.
Published in English as Dead at daybreak.
