Read Between the Lines Reviews 7 Days by Deon Meyer

7 DaysVerdict: carrot

Set in the heart of Cape Town and infused with South African flavour, Deon Meyer’s 7 Days is a fresh, engaging police procedural novel starring recurrent protagonist Benny Griessel, homicide detective for the DPCI. In 7 Days, Griessel is assigned to find the murderer of Hanneke Sloet, an ambitious lawyer who was brutally stabbed in her apartment. With no witnesses and no leads, the police are ready to give up until they receive a menacing email from an unnamed source: unless the police stop their cover up and reopen the investigation, a sniper will shoot one policeman each day.
