Reverend Willie Maxwell was a rural preacher accused of murdering five of his family members for insurance money in the 1970s. With the help of a savvy lawyer, he escaped justice for years until a relative shot him dead at the funeral of his last victim. Despite hundreds of witnesses, Maxwell's murderer was acquitted - thanks to the same attorney who had previously defended the Reverend.

As Alabama is consumed by these gripping events, it's not long until news of the case reaches Alabama's - and America's - most famous writer. Intrigued by the story, Harper Lee makes a journey back to her home state to witness the Reverend's killer face trial. Harper had the idea of writing her own In Cold Blood, the true-crime classic she had helped her friend Truman Capote research. Lee spent a year in town reporting on the Maxwell case and many more years trying to finish the book she called The Reverend.

Now Casey Cep brings this story to life, from the shocking murders to the courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South. At the same time, she offers a deeply moving portrait of one of the country's most beloved writers and her struggle with fame, success, and the mystery of artistic creativity.

This is the story Harper Lee wanted to write. This is the story of why she couldn't.

In November 2019 het My Only Story, Deon Wiggett se sensasionele weeklikse podsending, Suid- Afrika meegevoer in sy jag op die pedofiel wat hom as skoolseun verkrag het. Nou, in 'n Enkele verhaal, vertel hy vir die eerste keer 'n Afrikaanse storie in Afrikaans - en voltooi hy sy ontmaskering van Willem Breytenbach, die eens briljante onderwyser en latere mediabaas wat 'n donker lewe gelei het.

Deon se missie om 'n monster aan die kaak te stel, neem hom van Breytenbach se hoërskooljare by die landbouskool op Kroonstad na die beroemde Grey Kollege in Bloemfontein en die globale reus Naspers. Maar sy kruistog gaan soveel verder. Namate hy sistemiese tekortkominge by beroemde sowel as obskure skole ondersoek, onthul hy 'n kultuur van aandadigheid wat 'n ernstige gevaar vir ál Suid-Afrika se kinders inhou.

In die loop van sy ondersoek na mans wat op kinders jag maak, skep Deon 'n model wat enigiemand kan gebruik om pedofiele in hul midde te identifiseer. In sy eie woorde: “Dit is aangenaam om voor te gee dat mans nie kinders verkrag nie, maar as jy eers aanvaar dat dit gebeur, word dit verrassend maklik om die roofdiere uit te ken. Wanneer jy eers 'n universele patroon met 'n spesifieke man se profiel vergelyk, kan jy die bedrog raaksien voor dit te laat is.”

'n Enkele verhaal is 'n boeiende, deurdagte en verrassend ondeunde storie van een man se vasberadenheid om sy kindertrauma te verwerk, ander te help om hul eie demone in die oë te kyk, en om 'n stukkie skoonheid terug te wen uit die jeug wat hy verloor het.

In November 2019, Deon Wiggett's sensational weekly podcasts held South Africa in thrall as he hunted down the paedophile who raped him as a schoolboy. Now, in My Only Story, he completes his exposé of Willem Breytenbach, the once brilliant teacher and later media luminary who led a predatory life.

Deon's mission to expose his abuser takes him from Breytenbach's high-school years at an agricultural school in South Africa's hinterland to the famous Grey College in Bloemfontein and the media titan Naspers. But his quest reveals so much more. As he traces systemic failures through schools great and small, he uncovers a culture of complicity that poses a clear and present danger to the country's children.

While investigating men who prey on boys and girls, Deon devises a model that anyone can use to identify paedophiles in their midst. In his own words: 'It's pleasant to pretend that men don't rape children, but once you accept that they do, it becomes surprisingly easy to recognise their trickery. Once you match a universal pattern to a specific man's profile, you can spot the deceit before it is too late.'

My Only Story is a riveting, thoughtful and often irreverent account of one man's determination to overcome childhood trauma; to help others face their demons; and to extract some beauty from the boyhood he lost.

In the early 1990s, a young Johann van Loggerenberg became a long-term deep cover agent for a unit investigating organised crime.
As agent RS536, he took on the guise of a drug smuggler in the Durban underworld and slowly infiltrated different crime syndicates. His transformation was so complete that within a few years he became one of the top five most wanted individuals in KwaZulu-Natal. But then his cover suddenly came under threat.

Van Loggerenberg was given documents containing information on so-called third force activities - where Military Intelligence and the Security Branch supplied weapons to the Inkatha Freedom Party. He dreaded sharing this information with the Goldstone Commission. Disaster threatened when former members of the Security Branch, who had since been transferred to his unit, got wind of this and started a campaign to discredit him.

This fascinating portrait of the criminal underworld is packed with action and drama.

Eleven murders over a period of four years sent shockwaves through the Krugersdorp community and made headlines nationwide. Eventually these murders were connected to Cecilia Steyn and her cult, Electus per Deus (chosen by God). Members of the cult were willing to do anything for Cecilia - even if it meant committing murder. The murderers are intelligent, ordinary people - a teacher, a financial broker, and a teenager who - despite her involvement in the murders - still managed to obtain six distinctions in matric and be accepted to medical school. Their victims merely kept their appointments, not knowing that their appointments were with death. Who is Cecilia Steyn? How can one person manipulate five others to commit murder and perjury on her behalf? How did Satanism contribute to all of this? How did inexperienced criminals manage to evade capture for so long? Jana Marx answers these and other questions in this true-crime account that led to one of the most sensational murder cases in the country's history. Through interviews with those in the inner circle, evidence given in court and police files covering a period of four years, Marx attempts to answer the public's questions and provide a view of the inner workings of such a cult. This is the English version of the top selling 'Afspraak met moord'.

This is the definitive story of the case against Jeffrey Epstein and the corrupt system that supported him, told in thrilling detail by the lawyer who has represented Epstein's victims for more than a decade. In June 2008, Florida-based victims' rights attorney Bradley J. Edwards was thirty-two years old and had just started his own law firm when a young woman named Courtney Wild came to see him. She told a shocking story of having been sexually coerced at the age of fourteen by a wealthy man in Palm Beach named Jeffrey Epstein. Edwards, who had never heard of Epstein, had no idea that this moment would change the course of his life. Over the next ten years, Edwards devoted himself to bringing Epstein to justice, and came close to losing everything in the process. Edwards tracked down and represented more than twenty of Epstein's victims, and shined a light on his network of contacts and friends, among them Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew. Edwards gives his riveting, blow-by-blow account of battling Epstein on behalf of his clients, and provides stunning details never shared before. He explains how he followed Epstein's criminal enterprise from Florida, to New York, to Europe, to a Caribbean island, and, in the process, became the one person Epstein most feared could take him down. Epstein and his cadre of high-priced lawyers were able to manipulate the FBI and the Justice Department, but, despite making threats and attempting schemes straight out of a spy movie, Epstein couldn't stop Edwards, his small team of committed lawyers and, most of all, the victims, who were dead-set on seeing their abuser finally put behind bars. This is the definitive account of the Epstein saga, personally told by the gutsy lawyer who took on one of the most brazen sexual criminals in the history of the US, and exposed the corrupt system that let him get away with it for far too long.

Plaasmoorde: Slagoffers vertel self gaan nie oor die beskrywing van grusame aanvalle, moorde en letsels nie. Hierin word die verhale van mense se seerkry en opstaan vertel; van lewenslange posttraumatiese stresversteuring; boere se woede teen wat beskou word as 'n onsimpatieke regering; en ander se soeke na vergifnis.

Tien boere se unieke verhale is opgeteken en poog om die kollig op die slagoffers van plaasaanvalle te plaas.

'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.

In September 2018, Collan Rex, former water polo coach at Parktown Boys High, was found guilty of 144 charges of sexual assault and sentenced to 23 years in prison. He had molested and choked a boarding house full of schoolboys into silence and shame, leaving behind a trail of broken lives. His response in court? It'd been done to him, in the same way, at the same school. Now the victims, the parents, and the abuser tell their stories.

South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and a femicide rate that is more than five times the world average. In this book, Dr Nechama Brodie looks at the story of femicide in South Africa over the past forty years. She interrogates police, public health and media data, exploring the history of violence against women in an entirely new way that contextualises and challenges the state and public response to what has, in reality, been a crisis for decades.

Just after dusk on Good Friday, 6 April 2012, the peace and quiet permeating the small Northern Cape town of Griekwastad was disrupted when a young teenage boy sped into town in his father's Isuzu bakkie and screeched to a halt in front of the town's nearly deserted police station. It was shortly before 19h00 when Don Steenkamp jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the station's charge office, covered in blood, to announce that his parents and sister had been brutally shot and killed on the family farm, Naauwhoek.

Although the killings were initially thought to be just another farm attack, months later Don was arrested for the murders, setting in motion a chain of events that would grip South Africa and divide the people of Griekwastad.

Based on interviews with all the role-players, including the investigating offi cers on the case, the forensic and ballistic experts, and family and friends of the deceased, and concluding with the verdict and the sentencing, this is the riveting account of what really happened on Naauwhoek farm on that fateful day, as told by the reporter who followed the case from day one…

Die vrede en stilte in die klein Noord-Kaapse dorpie Griekwastad is kort ná skemer op Goeie Vrydag, 6 April 2012, versteur toe 'n jong tienerseun in sy pa se Isuzu-bakkie die dorp binnejaag en met skreeuende remme voor die byna verlate polisiestasie stilhou. Dit was net voor 19:00 toe die bebloede Don Steenkamp uit die voertuig spring en die aanklagkantoor binnestorm met die nuus dat sy ouers en suster op die familieplaas Naauwhoek wreedaardig doodgeskiet is. Alhoewel daar aanvanklik gedink is dat die moorde net nóg 'n plaasaanval was, is Don maande later weens die moorde gearresteer. Dit het 'n proses aan die gang gesit wat Suid-Afrika sou meesleur en die mense van Griekwastad onderling sou verdeel.

Hierdie boeiende verhaal van wat werklik op daardie noodlottige dag op die plaas Naauwhoek gebeur het, word vertel deur die verslaggewer wat die saak van die eerste dag af gevolg het. Dit is gebaseer op onderhoude met al die betrokkenes, insluitende die ondersoekbeamptes, die forensiese en ballistiese deskundiges asook familie en vriende van die oorledenes, en eindig met die uitspraak en vonnisoplegging…

'A remarkable, authentic and chilling expose of a global conspiracy that reads like a first-rate conspiracy thriller: a book of gripping, compulsive and disturbing impact' William Boyd Dark Mirror is the ultimate inside account of the vast, global surveillance network that now pervades all our lives. Barton Gellman's informant called himself 'Verax' - the truth-teller. It was only later that Verax unmasked himself as Edward Snowden. But Gellman's primary role in bringing Snowden's revelations to light, for which he shared the Pulitzer prize, is only the beginning of this gripping real-life spy story. Snowden unlocked the door: here Gellman describes what he found on the other side over the course of a years-long journey of investigation. It is also the story of his own escalating battle against unknown digital adversaries after he discovered his own name on a file in the NSA document trove and realised that he himself was under attack. Through a gripping narrative of paranoia, clandestine operations and jaw-dropping revelations, Dark Mirror delineates in full for the first time the hidden superstructure that connects government espionage with Silicon Valley and the most powerful corporation whose name you've never heard. Who is spying on us and why? Here are the answers.
