The seventh crime novel by the South-African author Dean Meyer translated from Afrikaans into English, Trackers 2011), engages with bodyguard Lemmer and inspector Joubert again, and introduces a new female character, Milla. Lemmer once again gets involved with the beautiful Emma le Roux, breaking the law partly because he is attracted to her, partly because the roof of his Karoo house needs big repairs, and partly because it is good and just cause. Involved in animal traffick in Limpopo, he is threatened at gunpoint and his pistol, full of fingerprints, is stolen, so he swears revenge and starts a ruthless hunt on his attackers. It will leave a trail of blood through the first private-investigation dossier of former inspector Mat Joubert. It’s a “fifty-five,” police slang for a missing persons case. It will stomp fear and horror through the life of Milla Strachan, who walked out on her rich, cheating husband and abusive teenage son to start a new life. A trail of death, stretching from the Chizarira to the Cape Waterfront. And at the end of it, nobody will be untouched. This novel built like a puzzle “excels in [its] descriptions of the urban and natural landscapes… [its] characters are realistic… and [it] paints a beautiful portrait of a wounded woman with Milla. Trackers is an ambitious book into which readers will delve with delight” (Livres Hebdo).
