Jose Ignacio Reviews Trackers by Deon Meyer

TrackersVerdict: carrot

To some extent Trackers is a spy-thriller, a crime novel and a road movie according to Deon Meyer. They are also three stories in one, narrated consecutively. The action takes place in South Africa in the months prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup Championship. The three stories are related in some way, but finding out this relationship is one of the many attractions of this novel.

The first story concerns Milla Strachan, a housewife who one day finds the courage to take charge of her own life and leaves behind an abusive husband and a teenage son who despises her. Journalist by training, she gets a job as a report writer for the Presidential Intelligence Agency.
