Why do people 'lose their heads'? Chris Mahlangu, who murdered Eugene Terre'Blanche, did not just bludgeon him to death, he literally hacked him to pieces with a steel pipe. One young man clubbed a nurse to death and her boyfriend into ICU with a piece of wood. Another bashed both his adoptive parents unconscious with a cricket bat before stabbing each more than 20 times in the torso and then slitting his father's throat. A male prostitute struck his friend so many times with a knobkierie after his 'indecent suggestions' that he died of a skull fracture. Why would a heterosexual man who often sleeps with prostitutes pick up a boy at a shopping centre and molest him? Five case studies about real-life SA violent criminals as told by seasoned crime writer Carla van der Spuy and clinical psychologist Dr Henk Swanepoel. The book contains information about personality disorders, each criminal's background, the day of the crime, the court case, Dr Swanepoel's interviews and findings, to the follow-up prison visit - face to face with the monster.

Waarom 'haak mense se koppe uit'? Chris Mahlangu, wat vir Eugene Terre'Blanche vermoor het, het hom nie net doodgeslaan nie, hy het hom letterlik aan stukke gekap met 'n staalpyp. Een jong man slaan 'n verpleegster met 'n stuk hout in die veld dood en haar kêrel tot in die hospitaal se waakeenheid. 'n Ander slaan beide sy aanneemouers bewusteloos met 'n krieketkolf en dan steek hy hulle meer as 20 keer elk in die bors met 'n mes voor hy sy pa keel-af sny. 'n Manlike prostituut slaan sy vriend soveel keer met 'n knopkierie oor sy 'onsedelike voorstelle' dat dié sterf aan 'n skedelbreuk. Waarom sal 'n heteroseksuele man wat by prostitute slaap 'n seun by winkelsentrum oplaai en met hom lol?

Hitmen for Hire

When you next sit down at your local coffee shop, look around you: there may just be a professional hitman sitting at the next table. As author Mark Shaw reveals in this highly original and informative book, the 'upper world' sails perilously close to the underworld.
Hitmen for Hire takes the reader on a journey like no other, navigating a world of hammermen (hitmen), informers, rogue policemen, taxi bosses, gang leaders and crooked businessmen. The book examines a system in which contract killings have become the norm, looking at who arranges hits, where to find a hitman, and even what it is like to be a hitman - or woman.
Since 1994, South Africa has witnessed some spectacular underworld killings associated with various industries and sectors. Drawing on over a thousand cases, from 2000 to 2016, Shaw reveals how these murders have an outsized impact on the evolution of both legal and illegal economic activity.

Justice Served? - The Trial & Conviction of Bob Hewitt

R 210
R 168Jy spaar R 42
In 1992, former Grand Slam tennis champion Bob Hewitt was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. In 2012, he was indefinitely suspended following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct from women he coached as young girls.

On 23 March 2015, Hewitt was found guilty of two counts of rape and one of sexual assault after a watershed trial that has changed the legal landscape and how the South African judicial system prosecutes historic rape.

This book takes the reader behind the scenes of the trial that shook the foundations of the international sporting world. It follows the case against Hewitt instituted by Suellen Sheehan and two fellow accusers, only a few of the dozens of survivors who allegedly suffered abuse at his hands. The result was a six-year prison sentence handed down to the frail 75-year-old, more than 30 years after his crimes.

Justice Served? The Trial and Conviction of Bob Hewitt covers various perspectives of the trial, from that of the state prosecutor to the defence advocate and other key role-players, includes Hewitt's appeal of sentence in 2016, and chronicles the spectacular fall from grace of a world-famous tennis legend.

Koeëlreën

R 230
In Koeëlreën gaan kyk die skrywer na die ballistiese arm van die forensies-wetenskaplike veld. 'n Fassinerende onderwerp. Met die Oscar Pistorius saak het die publiek bewus geword van die kritiese rol wat ballistiek speel by sake waar vuurwapens betrokke is. As daar één instrument is wat male sonder tal die wêreld verander het, soms in 'n oogwink, is dit vuurwapens. Dikwels word dit gesien as 'n instrument wat haat verwoord. Dit is en word steeds gebruik om politieke dispute te besleg, ideologieë af te dwing en word dikwels aangewend om die ongewenste been in 'n liefdesdriehoek op gewelddadige wyse uit die formule te verwyder.
Hierdie boek gaan delf in die geskiedenis en die ontwikkeling van die ballistiese wetenskap. Maar dit is nié 'n handboek nie. Tegnieke en die geskiedenis van die ontwikkeling daarvan word slegs aangeraak - net genoeg om die leser die insig te gee om te verstaan waarom dit gaan. Hoofsaaklik gaan dit om die verhale (sake) waarin ballistiese ondersoeke 'n kardinale rol gespeel het. Dit beskryf die saak en terselfdertyd bring dit die leser op hoogte van hoe die forensiese ballistiese wetenskap te werk gaan. Die ballistieke ondersoek staan nooit op sy eie nie, maar is altyd 'n deel van die legkaart waaruit die saak ontrafel moet word.
In die laaste plek word in-diepte gekyk na die mense wat aangeraak word nádat 'n sneller getrek is, die eggo's stil geword het en die kruitdamp in die verlede weggedryf het. Want elke insident verwoes lewens en die ballistiese wetenskap is méér as 'n ondersoek na tegniese feite - dit is ook daar sodat mense gestraf kan word en diegene wat daardeur geraak is, kan begin om te vergeet en aangaan met hulle lewens.

Wollie Wolmarans (medesamesteller van die boek), is een van die bekendste privaat ballistiese deskundiges in Suid-Afrika. Hy was betrokke by verskeie sake wat in die boek beskryf word en deel sy kennis en ervaring.
Moord is die mees betroubare/akkurate syfer wat gebruik word om die erns van misdaadstatistiek te reflekteer. Internasionaal word moord-statistiek gesien as 'n betroubare indikasie van die stabiliteit in 'n land. In die 12 maande tussen April 2015 en Maart 2016 het die voorkoms van moord in Suid-Afrika met 3,2% toegeneem. Dit is amper 'n 20% verhoging in moord oor die afgelope vier jaar.

Krejcir: Business as Usual

R 250
R 200Jy spaar R 50
Just who is Radovan Krejcir? Known as 'Baas John' to his underlings, he arrived in South Africa in 2007 under a false passport. He was a fugitive, a powerful Czech multimillionaire, who escaped from prison on fraud charges and fled to the good life in the Seychelles. But a bid by the Czech Republic to have him extradited saw Krejcir coming to South Africa. He was arrested at the airport, but an alleged bribe kept him in the country. Within a few years Krejcir had amassed great wealth and his name began being associated with underworld gang members such as Cyril Beeka and Lolly Jackson. It was the murder of Lolly Jackson that brought Krejcir's name into the limelight and revealed his dealing with crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and small time criminal George Louka.

Over the next three years 10 more deaths took place, each one more dramatic than the next. He was also the victim of a bizarre James Bond style shoot out. His business Moneypoint exploded when a bomb left inside a bag blew up, killing two associates. Soon afterward Krejcir was arrested, but in true Krejcir fashion even a jail cell could not hold him down. Police foiled a plan to murder top cop Colonel Nkosana Ximba and forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan and to stop numerous escape attempts.

He has been found guilty and sentenced for kidnapping, attempted murder and attempted drug possession. He also faces charges for the murder of Sam Issa, the conspiracy to murder investigators and the murder of Phumlani Ncube, a hit man-turned informant. But Krejcir reveals why we have not heard the last of the worst crime boss South Africa has ever seen.

What really happened on that Valentine's evening of 13 February 2013 when Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed in the toilet of Oscar Pistorius' house? Did Oscar know that Reeva was behind the toilet door? Or did Oscar truly believe that an intruder was hiding behind that door?

In this book, brothers Thomas and Calvin Mollett set out to find the answers by taking a painstaking look at the crime scene and evidence with eagle eyes.

- Was Oscar on his stumps when he broke open the toilet door?

- What do the clothes Reeva was wearing when the paramedics arrived tell us about the crime?

- Which of the witnesses were in the best position to hear screams from Oscar's house?

- What caused the wounds on Reeva's back?

- Did the prosecution present all the evidence?

- What does the cricket bat tell us?

- Was Reeva alive when she was carried downstairs?

These are only some of the questions addressed in this full-colour book of 80 000 words and over 500 high-quality images - a book that informs as much as it exposes.

A citizen's guide to crime trends in South Africa

R 185
R 148Jy spaar R 37
Crime statistics do not belong to the government, academics, specialists, or the press. They are ours: we experience and report crimes and have a right to access and understand their official record. It should not take any particular expertise to get a grasp on what we should make of the figures and graphs that the South African Police Service produces every year.

Yet crime, its measurement and control, are as much political matters as they are technocratic. While there is much that remains open to interpretation and discussion, there are some things that we should all be able to agree on, based on a sober reading of the evidence. As crime is a serious issue in South Africa, knowing what the official sources say is critical for productive debates on what we can do to make our country safer.

A Citizen's Guide to Crime Trends in South Africa provides a basis on which to understand the statistics in a manner that is accessible to the general public. Each chapter challenges a set of oft-repeated assumptions about how bad crime is, where it occurs, and who its victims are. It also demonstrates how and why crime statistics need to be matched with other forms of research, including criminal justice data, in order to produce a fuller account of what we are faced with.

Anine Kriegler is a researcher with the Institute for Safety Governance in the Global South at the University of Cape Town. She holds Master's degrees from both UCT and Cambridge University, and is a Doctoral candidate in Criminology. Her research interests include the measurement of crime and victimisation, and drug markets.

Mark Shaw is the Director of the Institute for Safety Governance in the Global South. He holds the NRF Chair in African Justice and Security and is the Director of the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime. He worked for 12 years at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. His research focuses on illicit markets and organised crime.

Bloedsusters 2 Vlees en bloed

R 230
Eileen en Roelien staan nie net as die Bloedsusters bekend omdat hulle biologiese susters is nie, maar ook omdat hulle daagliks bloederige misdaadtonele skoonmaak. Selfdood. Moord. Die heel wreedste plaasmoorde ook. Maar daar is nie altyd misdaad betrokke nie. Soms ruim die susters opgaarders se huise op - dikwels tot die plafon toe volgepak, en ander kere help hulle vloedwaters of 'n brand se skade herstel.

Eileen and Roelien are not only known as the Blood Bisters because they are biological sisters, but also due to the fact that cleaning bloody crime scenes is their day job. Suicides. Homicides. The most gruesome farm murders. But crime is not always involved. Sometimes the sisters clean up hoarders' homes - often packed to the ceiling with junk - at other times they help to restore damage caused by fire or floods.

Gruesome - The crimes and criminals that shook South Africa

R 230
R 184Jy spaar R 46
Gruesome - adj. Causing repulsion or horror, grisly. Informal extremely unpleasant. Origin C16f rom Scottish grue: 'to feel horror, shudder'; of Scandinavian origin.

In this book, investigative journalist De Wet Potgieter follows the trail of a number of criminals in South Africa's history. These violent crimes, perpetrated from the late 1980s into the new millennium, vary from fanatical far-rightists who killed their innocent countrymen, to assassins who executed high-profile, state-sanctioned murders. He takes the reader behind the scenes of some of the most controversial events in our country and, with his fearless style of writing, pulls you right into the belly of the beast.

In Gruesome, he shares information that has never before been made public. What really happened on the night of 17 June 1992 in Boipatong? What motivated the horrific attack on Alison Botha? What caused the ostensibly conformist policeman André Stander to become an unscrupulous bank robber? Who was the first person to see the connection between Gert van Rooyen's victims and a probable human-trafficking network?

Potgieter relates how, as a journalist, he went about reporting on each of these cases. This book takes you back to the bloody newspaper headlines of yesterday.

Grusaam

R 230
Grusaam - b.nw. veroorsaak afsku, walging; afgryslik. Informeel geweldig onaangenaam. Oorsprong 16de eeu van die Skotse grue: om afgryse te voel; sidder, van Skandinawiese oorsprong.

In hierdie boek loop die ondersoekende joernalis De Wet Potgieter terug op die spore van 'n klomp geweldenaars in Suid-Afrika se geskiedenis. Dié geweldsmisdade, wat van die laat tagtigerjare tot in die nuwe millennium gepleeg is, wissel van fanatiese verregses wat medeburgers koelbloedig afmaai, tot geweldenaars wat hoëprofiel-staatsmoorde gepleeg het. Hy neem die leser tot agter die skerms van die mees omstrede voorvalle in ons land. Met sy onverskrokke skryfstyl trek Potgieter jou midde-in die sake in.

In Grusaam deel hy inligting wat nog nie voorheen openbaar gemaak is nie. Wat het werklik die nag van 17 Junie 1992 in Boipatong gebeur? Wat was die dryfkrag agter die gru-aanval op Alison Botha? Wat het van die doodgewone polisieman André Stander 'n gewetenlose bankrower gemaak? Wie het eerste die verband tussen Gert van Rooyen se slagoffers en 'n moontlike mensehandelsaak raakgesien?

Potgieter vertel hoe hy as joernalis te werk gegaan het om verslag te doen oor elk van dié grusame sake. Hierdie boek neem jou terug na die bloedige koerant-opskrifte van gister.
