9781444730722: Dead at Daybreak

An antiques dealer robbed and killed, and the only clues are a scrap of blank paper and the unusual weapon used. 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.

About the Author:

Simon Vance, a former BBC Radio presenter and newsreader, is a full-time actor who has appeared on both stage and television. He has recorded over eight hundred audiobooks and has earned five coveted Audie Awards, and he has won fifty-seven Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which has named him a Golden Voice.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Chronicling events that transpire before those in 2004's excellent Heart of the Hunter, Meyer shifts focus here from Xhosa ex-assassin Thobela Mpayipheli to Afrikaner ex-cop Zatopek van Heerden (although both men play key roles in each other's stories). Zet, as van Heerden's famed artist mother calls him, quit the Cape Town homicide squad after failing to prevent his partner's death. He's still wallowing in guilt when an attorney hires him to track the missing will of a mysterious antiques dealer who was murdered 15 years ago with a blowtorch and an M-16. Zet has a week to uncover the man's true identity, find the document, and discover what secrets his walk-in safe used to hold. Meanwhile, in exchange for help publicizing the case, he must write his life story for a sexy but twisted media maven. Alternating chapters between Zet's soulful confessional and the explosive investigation, Meyer manages to ratchet up the tension so effectively that readers will have a hard time deciding which mystery they wish to pierce first. The author once again mines South Africa's fertile history of racial conflict and cold war gamesmanship for a narrative gem. Frank Sennett
