As a follow up to the bestselling Killing Kebble: An Underworld Exposed (2010), the new book from Mandy Wiener examines how organised crime, gangsters and powerful political figures have been able to capture the law enforcement authorities and agencies.
These various organisations have been eviscerated, hollowed out and left ineffective. They have been infiltrated and compromised and, as a result, prominent underworld figures have been able to flourish in South Africa, setting up elaborate networks of crime with the assistance of many cops.

The criminal justice system has been left exposed and it is crucial that the South African public knows about the capture that has occurred on different levels.

Heist! is an in-depth look at 10 of South Africa's most audacious heists. From the 1996 'burning man' case, where four security guards were burnt alive in their armoured vehicle after a ferocious fight-back against highly trained mercenaries, to the 2016 robbery of a cash centre in Witbank, where a gang made off with almost R107 million after impersonating police officers, this is an impeccably researched reconstruction of an endemic crime phenomenon that some analysts warn could bring South Africa to its knees. Using the information gleaned from thousands of pages of court documents and press reports, as well as interviews with scores of police officers, crime-intelligence agents, prosecutors defence lawyers, researchers, journalists, security guards and the criminals themselves Heist! gives unprecedented insight into a type of crime that increased by a staggering 49 per cent in the first eight months of 2017 alone. As informative and thought-provoking as it is distressing, this is a book by an investigative journalist at the top of her game.

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?
Vyf gevallestudies oor ware Suid-Afrikaanse geweldsmisdadigers, vertel deur ervare misdaadskrywer Carla van der Spuy en kliniese sielkundige dr Henk Swanepoel.
Die boek bevat inligting oor persoonlikheidsversteurings, elke misdadiger se agtergrond, die dag van die misdaad, die hofsaak, dr Swanepoel se onderhoude en bevindings tydens die verhoor, tot die opvolgtronkbesoek - van aangesig tot aangesig met die monster.

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.

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.

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.

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.
