The most notable thing with this book was the uality of the writing so so good And since it is a translation points must go to both the author and the translator I love the way certain Afrikaans phrases are left in the English text They give it atmosphere and constantly remind the reader that you are in a country with very specific cultural issuesMeyer's books vary as to the balance of police procedural versus action thriller This one leans heavily towards procedure and it is a delight to watch the varied cast of characters working as a team to come up with results Of course there is action and a pretty high body count as wellBenny is a fantastic character and after four books I am coming to know him well He has a grip on his alcoholism now although it is a perpetual concern for him and by the end of this book he seems to have his private life sorted Best of all was watching him in charge of the whole team and managing their way to success A really good book from a talented author and I have the next one all ready on my shelf

Weer eens 'n uitstekende Meyer spanningsverhaal Die naelbyt aksie die aktuele kwessies en die boeiende karakters maak dit 'n eensitboek oor en oor die moeite werd Ek reken steeds dat Infanta koning kraai in Meyer land met Onsigbaar so 'n kortkop agter maar Kobra is 'n waardige toevoeging tot Meyer se al hoe indrukwekkender oeuvre Kobra is an excellent new suspence novel by Deon Meyer While those of us who can read Afrikaans rave a little gloatingly his other fans need to wait for the translations to stream forth I'm sure the translators are already slaving away with great joy I realise how Yrsa Sigurdardóttir's Icelandic fans must feel while I gnash my teeth and watch with a hawk's eye
