A new heart-stopping thriller from internationally acclaimed crime writer Deon Meyer.
     Why would a mathematics professor from Cambridge University, renting a holiday home outside Cape Town, require a false identity and 3 bodyguards? And where is he, now that they are dead? The only clue to the bodyguards' murder is the snake engraved on the shell casings of the bullets that killed them.
     Investigating the massacre, Benny Griessel and his team find themselves being drawn into an international conspiracy with shocking implications. It seems it is not just the terrorists and criminals of Britain and South Africa who may fear the professor's work, but the politicians too.
     As the body count begins to spiral viciously, Benny must put his new-found love life aside and focus on finding the one person who could give him a break in the case: a teenage pickpocket on the run in the city. But Benny is not the only person hunting for Tyrone Kleinbooi...
     Relentlessly suspenseful, topical, hard-hitting and richly rewarding, Cobra is a superb novel from an author who is acclaimed around the world as a brilliant voice in crime fiction.

An excellent read - a great plot, well written, suspenseful with well drawn characters - I recommend it.

Only thing wrong with it was an idiot who had read the book before me & had added comments & underlined many passages. Mostly where the text was in Africaans. Anyone else so inclined should note there is a glossary of terms at the back of the book.
People should realise these are library books, not to be defaced. Buy the book if you want to write in it.
