'n Blik op die binnekring van die Krugersdorp-kultus
“Daar was bloedspatsels oor die koffietafel, die banke en die banke se kussings. Peter en Joan was oortrek van steekwonde in hul rûe, nekke en agterkoppe. Nicholas het sy pa en ma gesigte na onder in 'n bloedbad op die mat in die sitkamer gekry. Hulle het hul hek en huis vir hul moordenaars oopgemaak, want hulle het 'n afspraak met hulle gehad.”
Elf wrede moorde oor 'n tydperk van vier jaar ruk die gemeenskap van Krugersdorp en haal landwyd nuusopskrifte. Eindelik word al hierdie moorde verbind met Cecilia Steyn en haar kultusgroep, Electus per Deus (uitverkies deur God). Lede van die groep aanbid die grond waarop Cecilia loop en sal selfs vir haar moord pleeg.
Die moordenaars is slim, gewone mense - 'n onderwyseres, 'n finansiële makelaar, 'n kind wat tussen die moorde deur steeds ses onderskeidings in matriek behaal en boonop keuring kry om medies te gaan studeer. Hul slagoffers het bloot 'n sake- afspraak nagekom, min wetend dat dít 'n afspraak met die dood was.
Wie is Cecilia Steyn? Hoe kan een mens vyf ander manipuleer om moord te pleeg en namens haar in die hof te lieg? Watter rol het Satanisme gespeel? Hoe ontduik onervare misdadigers die polisie vir so lank?
Jana Marx beantwoord dié en ander vrae in 'n waremisdaad-verhaal wat gelei het tot een van die opspraakwekkendste moordsake in die land se geskiedenis.
Met behulp van onderhoude uit diegene in die binnekring, hofgetuienis en polisiedossiere oor 'n tydperk van vier jaar poog Marx om die publiek se vrae te antwoord en 'n blik te gee op die binnewerkinge van só 'n kultus.

My father, the monster of the Springs house of horrors
“I kneel on the foot piece next to the bed and lower my head. A piercing, burning pain engulfs my entire face. Dad has kicked me. Blood is gushing from my nose. Then I feel cold water being poured all over my body. Electrical wires shock me, I can't see through the blood. God, help me.” (Translated)
Landi is the eldest of five children who were rescued from the so-called Springs house of horror. She is now 21 years old and tells her astonishing story for the very first time. In May 2014, police raided the house where a sadistic father had imprisoned, abused and tortured his wife and five children in a rat-infested den of sleaze.
In chilling detail, Landi recalls how their father assaulted them by tasering them, shooting them with a gas pistol and burning them with a blowtorch, how he researched torture methods and nearly drowned them in a bathtub.
She relates her memories to Susan Cilliers, an experienced journalist, who documents it with compassion, skilfully combining it with facts that emanated from the police investigation and court case.
House of Horrors is the shocking tale of a father who took everything from his family in the cruellest possible way, but it is also a story of hope about a brave young girl who eventually finds happiness and healing.

Angela Gallop has been a forensic scientist for over 40 years. After joining the Forensic Science Service, the first crime scene she attended was for a case involving the Yorkshire Ripper. As well as working on a wide range of cases in many countries around the world, she is now the most sought-after forensic scientist in the UK, where she has helped solve numerous high-profile cases, including the investigation that finally absolved the Cardiff Three the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path murders, and the killings of Stephen Lawrence, Damilola Taylor, Rachel Nickell and Roberto Calvi.

From the crime scene to the courtroom, When the Dogs Don't Bark is the remarkable story of a life spent searching for the truth.

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 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.
