Joburg launch of 'The Last Hunt' by Deon Meyer on November 14
In The Last Hunt, two strands of the same story become a race against time — for Hawks captain Benny Griessel and Vaughn Cupido to stop an assassination, and for international hitman Daniel Darret to evade the relentless Russian agents tracking him.
Griessel and Cupido are tasked with investigating a cold case, a difficult case surrounded by mystery, lies and evasion.
The body of ex-cop John Johnson has been found by the side of a railway line. He appears to have jumped from the world's most luxurious train and the two (suspicious) characters seen with him have disappeared.
The police have already failed to make progress and others are intent on muddying the waters.
Meanwhile, in Bordeaux, France, Daniel is settled in a new life on a different continent. But his assassin skills are required one more time, and he is given no choice in the matter. Daniel must hunt again. His prey? The corrupt president of his homeland.
