A rush to find the truth in a limited amount of time is usually not something I read. But the author is Deon Meyer. For me, that is enough.
This book is compulsive and I finished it in one sitting. Other readers should try their hand.

Discovered Deon Meyer quite by accident; picked up Thirteen Hours in large print at my local library. It was a can't put 'em down story which brought back memories of places I visited when in Cape Town, South Africa in 2008. I emailed my South African friend asking him if he'd heard of Deon Myers. He hadn't read any of his books, but said I was the second person from the U.S. who had mentioned the author. I plan to read all of Meyer's books!
