Fever

1 Mins read

Deon Meyer has been called the king of South African crime fiction and with Fever he’s written a thriller you will not easily forget. After a rogue virus kills 95 percent of the world’s population, polymath Willem Storm and his son Nico set out to create a new society designed on Willem’s egalitarian principles. The difficulties – physical, psychological, spiritual, and practical – are formidable and include marauding bands whose vision is more dystopian than the Storms’. Yet Willem and his growing band persevere. A powerful coming-of-age story weaves through this adventure tale, which will keep you turning pages and reflecting on the choices Meyer’s characters have made long into the night.
