In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood's most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family. All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance that could not be explained - until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood, to Washington, and beyond. This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation ...

My pa, die monster van die Springs-gruwelhuis
“Ek kniel op die voetstuk langs die bed en laat my kop sak. 'n Warm brandpyn skiet deur my hele gesig. Pa het my geskop. Bloed stroom deur my neus. Dan voel ek hoe koue water oor my hele lyf stort. Elektriese drade stuur skokke deur my, ek kan nie deur die bloed sien nie. Here, help my.”
Landi is die oudste van vyf kinders wat uit die sogenaamde Springs-gruwelhuis gered is. Sy is nou 21 jaar oud en vertel vir die eerste keer haar verstommende verhaal. In Mei 2014 het die polisie dié huis ontdek waar 'n sadistiese pa sy vrou en vyf kinders vir jare tussen vullis en rotte aangehou, getreiter en gemartel het.
In ysingwekkende besonderhede onthou Landi hoe hul pa hulle aangerand, met 'n skokstok geskok, met 'n gaspistool geskiet en met 'n blaasvlam gebrand het, hoe hy martelmetodes nagevors en hulle byna in 'n bad verdrink het.
Sy vertel hierdie herinneringe vir die heel eerste keer aan Susan Cilliers, 'n ervare joernalis, wat dit met deernis weergee en dit vernuftig met die feite van die polisie-ondersoek en die hofsaak verweef.
Huis van gruwels is die skokverhaal van 'n pa wat op die wreedste manier denkbaar alles van sy gesin wegneem, maar ook 'n storie van hoop oor hoe 'n dapper jong vrou uiteindelik geluk en genesing vind.

Hoekom raak mense verlief op misdadigers?
Johann Nel, die Skierlik-moordenaar, gevonnis tot 168 jaar gevangenisstraf, vind liefde. Die jong vrou trou met hom, teen alle raad...
Dit is ver van die enigste geval van so 'n verhouding.
Van diewe tot geweldsmisdadigers - selfs moordenaars - vind liefde agter die tralies.
Sulke mense word dikwels as monsters beskou, maar vir diegene wat op hulle verlief raak is hulle 'die liefde van hul lewe' , of word hulle soos familie vir mekaar.
Die topverkoperskrywer Carla van der Spuy gesels met mense wat hierdie onwaarskynlike soort liefde self ervaar het.
Daar is die bruid in boeie, tot sewe jaar gevonnis vir moord; die swendelaar wat sy lewe omgekeer het met die steun van sy nuwe liefde; mense in die tronk wat verstom is om liefde te vind op onverwagte plekke.
Carla gaan klop ook aan by kenners en kyk na wat sulke verhoudings agter tralies dryf .

Murder has always fascinated us, and when women are the masterminds, the intrigue grows exponentially. Not only are female murderers much rarer than male killers, but their crimes usually also involve a more sophisticated type of plotting. Award-winning journalist Tanya Farber investigates the lives, minds and motivations of some of South Africa's most notorious female murderers, from the poisonous nurse Daisy de Melker, to the privileged but deeply disturbed Najwa Petersen, to the mysterious Joey Harhoff who died before revealing where the bodies of her victims (including her own niece) were. Farber sets each case against the backdrop of the different eras and regions of 20th and early 21st century South Africa the women operated in.

Here is the Cape Town underworld laid bare, explored through the characters who control the protection industry, the bouncers and security at nightclubs and strip clubs.
At the centre of this turf war is Nafiz Modack, the latest kingpin to have seized control of the industry, a man often in court on various charges, including extortion. Investigative journalist Caryn Dolley has followed Modack and his predecessors for six years as power has shifted in the nightclub security industry, and she focuses on how closely connected the criminal underworld is with the police services. In this suspenseful page turner of an investigation, she writes about the overlapping of the state with the underworld, the underworld with the upperworld, and how the associated violence is not confined to specific areas of Cape Town, but is happening inside hospitals, airports, clubs and restaurants and putting residents at risk.

A book that lays bare the myth that violence and gangsterism in Cape Town is confined to the ganglands of the Cape Flats, wherever you find yourself, you're only a hair's breadth away from the enforcers.

The extraordinary story of Paul Le Roux - one of the world's most prolific criminals, and the embodiment of a new generation of internet-enabled kingpins - and the US government's clandestine efforts to bring him down.

The Mastermind tells the incredible true story of Paul Le Roux, the frighteningly powerful creator of a 21st Century cartel, and the decade-long global manhunt that finally brought his empire to its knees.

From its origins as a prescription drug network, supplying hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of painkillers to online customers, Le Roux's business evolved into a sprawling multinational conglomerate engaged in almost every conceivable aspect of criminal mayhem. Yachts carrying $100 million in cocaine. Safe houses in Hong Kong filled with gold bars. Shipments of methamphetamine from North Korea. Weapons deals with Iran. Mercenary armies in Somalia. Teams of hitmen in the Philippines. All tied together with encryption programs so advanced that government agencies could not break them.

Tracing Le Roux's vast wealth and his shadowy henchmen around the world, award-winning journalist Evan Ratliff spent four years piecing together this intricate network. His investigation reveals a tale of ambition and greed, and exposes a new age of international crime in which a reclusive entrepreneur can thrive, combining the ruthlessness of a drug lord with the technological capabilities of a Silicon Valley firm to build an empire in the shadows of our networked world.

The result is a riveting, unprecedented account of the most prolific crime boss built by and for the digital age.

Pedofilie. Ontvoering. Moord? In Suid-Afrikaners se koppe het hierdie begrippe sinoniem geword met die name van Gert van Rooyen en Joey Haarhoff. In die dertig jaar sedert die tragiese verdwyning van ses jong skoolmeisies en die dramatiese skietdood van die land se berugste paartjie, hang onbeantwoorde vrae steeds in die lug. Die makabere raaisels wat hulle agtergelaat het, het nie saam met hulle gesterf nie.

Joernalis Pieter van Zyl gee in hierdie boek, waarvoor hy eksklusiewe toegang tot Huisgenoot se uitgebreide argief gehad het, 'n volledige oorsig oor dié sage. Die jongste insigte en ervarings van rolspelers wat direk by die saak betrokke is en was, word ook betrek - nie net aan die kant van die slagoffers nie, maar ook aan die kant van die vermeende “monsters”. Kenners, waaronder sielkundiges, kriminoloë, baasspeurders, handskrifontleders en selfs sieners, verskaf 'n sonderlinge blik op die gebeure w at by Suid-Afrikaners bly spook.

Die tragedie verkry 'n nuwe dimensie wanneer dit gekaats word teen die agtergrond van Suid-Afrika drie dekades gelede. Dit blyk ook dat Van Rooyen en Haarhoff nie in isolasie kon optree nie, maar waarskynlik deel was van 'n uitgebreide misdaad-netwerk. Hierdie boek sal niemand koud laat nie.

In 2012 Angy Peter was bringing up her young children with her husband, Isaac Mbadu, in Bardale, Mfuleni, on the Cape Flats. Angy and Isaac were activists, leading the charge for a commission of inquiry into policing in Khayelitsha. Angy was vocally against vigilante violence and a go-to-person when demanding better services from the police.
But when the commission started its hearings Angy found herself instead on trial for murdering - necklacing - a young neighbourhood troublemaker, Rowan du Preez. The State's case would centre on the accusation Rowan du Preez allegedly made with his dying breath - that Angy and her husband Isaac set the tyre alight around his neck.
Simone Haysom takes us into the heart of a mystery: was Angy Peter framed by the police for a murder she did not commit? Or was she, as the State argued, 'a wolf in sheep's clothing', who won a young man's trust then turned against him, in the most brutal way?
Simone Haysom spent four years meticulously researching this case and the result is a court-room drama interwoven with expert opinion and research into crime and the state of policing in the townships of South Africa.

In September 2007, Ellen Pakkies, a working mother from Lavender Hill on the Cape Flats, strangled her son to death. The judge in the subsequent trial sentenced her to community service for her crime. What drove Ellen to commit this horrific deed, and why the ostensibly light sentence for such a heinous crime?

The story of what happened over ten years ago has continued to grip public interest, putting a spotlight on the dire and desperate situation faced by many parents of addicted children. A highly successful play was produced in theatres around South Africa in 2011/12, and a full-length movie has recently been made of this story, which will reach the big screen in September 2018. When Dealing in Death was first published in 2009, the scourge of drug addiction was sweeping across South Africa, affecting every level of society. Little, if anything, has changed since then, as this new edition reveals. The use of tik, particularly in the Western Cape, has skyrocketed, and it was Abie Pakkies's addiction to this drug, and the horrendous impact it had on his and his family's lives, that drove Ellen to murder. Her trial exposed the dark underbelly of a community crippled by drug and alcohol abuse, and focused attention on the plight of those who live in poverty and do not have recourse to drug-rehabilitation centres and other measures effective in the treatment of addicts.

Dealing in Death looks at the global and local drugs culture, the predicament of Ellen Pakkies and other mothers like her, and an impoverished community and the apartheid laws that gave birth to it.

The 2005 brutal assault and murder of student Inge Lotz, whose body was found in her Stellenbosch apartment, remains unsolved. Strangely, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has closed the case - and shows no interest in hunting down Inge's killers.

Also murdered in 2005 were Jessica Wheeler and Victoria Stadler, in Knysna. Heinrich van Rooyen was found guilty of these two crimes in 2007 and is serving a sentence of 30 years imprisonment without parole - until 2035. For the past 13 years, Heinrich has maintained his innocence - and alleges that he was framed by the police.

During a four-year long investigation, an unseen hand in all three murders emerged - that of the late police Director Attie Trollip, who worked closely with the NPA. Proof has emerged that he was involved in the massive cover-up of Inge's murder to protect the perpetrators. In the two Knysna murders, the fabrication of forensic evidence against Heinrich by Trollip can also be proved.

In this book, readers are given clues into the identities of those who murdered Inge, Jessica and Victoria. A large amount of new factual evidence has been gathered - sufficient to demand that the South African Police Services reopen all three case so that the killers can be exposed and pay for their heinous crimes.

Bekendes soos Steve Hofmeyr het hom 'n vriend genoem. Vir die armes van Randfontein was hy 'n vrygewige Robin Hood wat groente en geld kom aflewer het. Vir sy vrou, Jacky, was hy agter toe deure die man wat minderwaardig gevoel het oor sy kunsbeen en omdat hy oorgewig was. Maar vir die meeste mense was hy die gevreesde Godfather van die Wes-Rand. Saam met sy ewe berugte vriende, Ferdi Barnard, Corrie Goosen en Dawie Lötter, het Ralph Haynes sy slagoffers behoorlik laat deurloop met die een verbysterende skelmstreek na die ander. Miljoene rande is uit mense geswendel met valse transaksies in goud, diamante, motors en selfs kookolie. Op 21 Januarie 2011 verdwyn Ralph Haynes egter spoorloos nadat hy saam met Frikkie Lutzkie in 'n helikopter geklim het. Vandag wonder almal steeds wat van hom geword het. Lê hy dood iewers in 'n mynskag, of het hy die hasepad gekies terwyl aanklagte van bedrog en diefstal teen hom opgehoop het? Die antwoord op hierdie vrae is nie voor die hand liggend nie. Radiojoernalis Izak du Plessis het onderhoude met die mense naaste aan Ralph Haynes gevoer in sy ondersoek na die lewe en verdwyning van dié enigmatiese en kleurryke figuur van die Suid-Afrikaanse onderwêreld. Boeiende leesstof wat jou opnuut sal laat besef dat die waarheid beslis vreemder as fiksie is.

Springs, 1977. Robert en Jeanne Smit word wreed om die lewe gebring in wat die WVK later as 'n politiese gemotiveerde moord sou beskryf. Dekades daarna gons dit oor wie presies vir die grudaad verantwoordelik was. Daar is rookskerms en ontkenning, verduistering en misleidings, en bespiegelings en teorieë oor presies wie die aanvanklike opdrag gegee het.
En iewers in die politieke kookpot prut stories van 'n dapper dertienjarige dogter Liza Smit. Nadat haar ouers uit haar lewe geruk is, sou niks ooit weer dieselfde wees nie. Toe sy hoor dat die WVK die saak wil ontrafel, begin sy en die ondersoekende joernalis Alet van Rensburg die saak navors. Saam-saam durf die twee, met enorme deursettingsvermoë, vasberadenheid en 'n porsie domastrantheid die taak aan : om die waarheid te ontbloot oor die dood van Liza se ouers.
Liza se verhaal word afgewissel met uittreksels uit die oorspronklike veslag wat sy aan die ongure onderwêreld van die destydse Suid- Afrika vol korrupte politici, taakmagte en internasionale intriges. Dis ook die storie van 'n lewe wat afspeel teen hierdie agtergrond, en hoe een indrukwekkende vrou haarself uit haar persoonlike hel reg.
