Fever by Deon Meyer

The Blurb On The Back:

One man with a dream.

One boy with a gun.

Once chance to rebuild the world.

Nico Storm and his father Willem drive a truck through a desolate land.  They are among the few in South Africa – and the world, as far as they know – to have survived a devastating virus.

Willem Storm, a thinker and a leader, has a vision for a new community rebuilt from the ruins.  And so Amanzi is formed of a disparate group of survivors: there’s Melinda Swanevelder, rescued from brutal thugs, Hennie Flaai, with his vital Cessna plane, Beryl Fortuin with her ragtag group of orphans and Domingo, the man with the tattooed hand.  And then there is Sofia Bergman, the most beautiful girl that Nico has ever seen, who changes everything.

As the community grows, so do the challenges it must face – not just from external attacks, but also from within.  And Nico will have his strength and loyalty tested to their limits as he undergoes an extraordinary rite of passage in this brand new world.
