Read an excerpt from Deon Meyer’s new novel, Fever
Hodder & Stoughton has released an excerpt from Fever, the latest novel by bestselling author Deon Meyer.
If you needed any more convincing, legendary thriller writer Stephen King recently tweeted enthusiastically about the book.
Read an excerpt:
I want to tell you about my father’s murder.
I want to tell you who killed him, and why. This is the story of my life. And the story of your life and your world too, as you will see. I have waited for a long time to write about this: I believe one needs wisdom and insight for such a task. I think one has ﬁrst to get the anger – in fact, all the emotions – under control.
I am forty-seven years old today. The age my father was when he died, in the Year of the Lion. Perhaps that offers enough distance from the events of the time, though I don’t know if I will ever develop the necessary wisdom and insight, but I worry that I will begin to forget many of the crucial events, experiences, people. I can’t postpone this any longer.
So, here it is. My memoir, my murder story. And my exposé, so everyone will know the truth.
