The original title of the book: Fever

'UK readers, you have a nice surprise coming. No, not Brexit, FEVER, by Deon Meyer. Reminiscent of THE STAND and THE PASSAGE. Great stuff' STEPHEN KING

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.

Nico Storm and his father drive across a desolate South Africa, constantly alert for feral dogs, motorcycle gangs, nuclear contamination. They are among the few survivors of a virus that has killed most of the world's population. Young as he is, Nico realises that his superb marksmanship and cool head mean he is destined to be his father's protector.

But Willem Storm, though not a fighter, is a man with a vision. He is searching for a place that can become a refuge, a beacon of light and hope in a dark and hopeless world, a community that survivors will rebuild from the ruins. And so Amanzi is born.

Fever is the epic, searing story of a group of people determined to carve a city out of chaos.

Emotional and atmospheric...There are shades of Cormac McCarthy's superb The Road, but FEVER grips even more. (The Times)Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage. Great stuff. (Stephen King)FEVER bears comparison with landmarks in the genre such as The Stand...The novel explores humanity at its best and worst; the crushing loss of civilisation with everything that means for the structure of society...This great book asks us to reflect on our own hidden natures - how would we react if the world we knew came to an end tomorrow? (Vaseem Khan, author of The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra)FEVER is one of the best books of the year. Deon Meyer is a masterful writer and has created a stunning epic that brims with emotion. The mystery, thrills, and action kept me riveted to every page. Highly recommended. (Adam Hamdy, author of Pendulum)Compelling, action-packed and fraught with emotion. At its heart it is a powerful exploration of humanity at its best and worst and bears favourable comparison with landmarks of the genre such as Stephen King's The Stand and Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Simply stunning. (Daily Express)Moving and gripping. (South China Morning Post)Deon Meyer should be applauded for this brutal, unflinching tale of the excesses of humanity coiled like a python around a coming-of-age tale; one that makes one think deeply about the human condition as it entertains as well as warns of the dangers ahead...Miss this insightful thriller at your peril, because as crime thrillers go, this is the big summer read of 2017. (Shotsmag)Praise for Deon Meyer (-)The narrative is well-plotted, and the novel brings to life the rich and volatile diversity of contemporary South Africa. There's nothing flashy here, just a good story, very well told. Would there were more like it. (Spectator)Deon Meyer is a top notch plotter and has created one of the best ensemble (and multi-racial) casts of any modern police procedural series. (Shots magazine)Crime fiction with real texture and intelligence. (Independent)Tells a cracking story and captures the criminal kaleidoscope of a nation. (Times Literary Supplement)

    Deon Meyer has to be one of thriller readers best kept secrets.I've had a couple of disappointments this summer with favourite authors delivering sub standard work so I started this with trepidation. I've loved his previous books and didn't want to be let down.I needn't have worried. Although Meyer has deviated from his usual genre of contemporary crime. His foray into what is, hopefully an alternative post apocalyptic South Africa, is incredibly worthwhile. Fever grips you from the off and you feel part of the father and son team who are at the heart of this story as they grapple for survival.The characters are richly drawn and the hypothesis all too realistic particularly after Ebola.Furthermore, his discriptions of the consequences of such a tragedy are all too believable. Never do you think this couldn't happen and it is this well researched realism that has you sweating throughout.Fever is a definite 'must read' and the only reason I don't give it five stars is because the denouement is not quite as strong as the rest of the book.That said, four stars for Meyer is worth five plus for anybody else. Read it and enjoy, this guy is South Africa's John Le Carre. He really is that good.

    This was a departure from Deon Meyer's usual genre but every bit as gripping and well deserving of the rave reviews I'd been reading before buying it. I couldn't put it down. I found the ending a little disappointing (far-fetched doesn't seem quite appropriate in a story in which everything is so far outside normal experience) and that's what brought my rating down to 4 star rather than 5, but it didn't spoil my overall enjoyment of the book. I was sorry to have finished it and would recommend it unreservedly.

    This is a post apocalypse novel set in South Africa. After a world wide "fever" has wiped out most of the population the survivors have to find a way of life and living. It is well written and I wanted to like it but I found it slow and over concerned with minutiae. In some sections very little actually happens and in the end I was skim reading it just to finish. (Just to clarify there are no vampires or such in this book)

  • By Liza Beukes on 18 July 2017

    I always enjoyed Deon Meyers books, but this time it is a book very different from his other books. I was fascinated with the story line and characters from the start to the end. Highly recommend this excellent book!

    This book just seems a mess. I have read every single other Deon Meyer but this is simply awful

  • By Bruce Scheepers on 8 September 2017

    A departure from his usual crime thriller genre, this apocalyptic piece is no less mesmerising. Every now and then you find a writer who gets inside your soul at the start of a book and you can't let it go until the final page. Meyer is one such fellow traveller. He could probably write a gripping yarn about paint drying!

  • By Dazmort1972 on 29 June 2017

    Really enjoyed this post apocalyptic. novelThe pace doesnt let up from start to finish. the end came too soon. Recommended

  • By Guest on 1 September 2017

    Loved it. Heard about the book from a well known crime writer being interviewed on tv and was asked what book she was currently reading. Real page turner.
