Somehow it seems as if the odds were against them. Were they destined to become killers of their own flesh and blood? What drives a young person to kill family members? Why do they commit such violent and heartless acts? Lives marred by psychological abuse, a lack of attachment with parents, neglect, difficulties growing up, complex circumstances, difficulty making friends, shattered intergenerational relationships, the author identifies what may have given rise to the events in the lives of these cases.
By making extensive use of in-depth case studies, based on interviews with various stakeholders, court and psychological records, visits to incarceration facilities, the author uses the lens of phenomenology to delve into the psyche of these young people in their teens and early twenties who committed recent murders that captured the attention of the southern African public.

'I wanted to write this book before I forgot the finer details. As strange as that may sound, you can forget these things, and it is probably healthier to do so. You can visit the depths of hell - just don't hang around there for too long.' - Gérard Labuschagne

In this gripping - and sometimes terrifying - account, former South African Police Service (SAPS) head profiler Dr Gérard Labuschagne, successor to the legendary Micki Pistorius, recalls some of the 110 murder series and countless other bizarre crimes he analysed during his career. An expert on serial murder and rape cases, Labuschagne saw it all in his fourteen and a half years in the SAPS. He walks the reader through the first crime scene he ever attended, his arrest of the Muldersdrift serial rapist, his experience as the head of the task team mandated to catch the Quarry serial murderer, his involvement with the Brighton Beach axe murders, and more. Despite often being stymied by a lack of resources, office politics and political interference, Labuschagne and his team were always determined to get their man - or woman, as in the Womb Raider case.

The Profiler Diaries is a fascinating - and often hair-raising - glimpse into what it was like to be a profiler in the world's busiest profiling unit.

It is 2007, a time of recession and impending climate crisis, and one young man decides to change the world.

Meet Stephen Jackley, a British geography student with Asperger's Syndrome. Aged just twenty-one, obsessed with the idea of Robin Hood, and with no prior experience, he resolved to become a bank robber. He would steal from the rich and give to the poor.

Jackley used disguise, elaborate escape routes and replica pistols to successfully hold up a string of banks, making away with thousands of pounds. He committed ten robberies in south-west England over a six-month period and bank notes marked with 'RH' - 'Robin Hood' - began finding their way into the hands of the homeless. The police, despite their concerted efforts, had no idea what was going on or who was responsible. That is until Jackley's ambition got the better of him.

'n Intieme blik op bendegeweld - van dié wat die geweld gepleeg het sowel as dié wat onskuldig is. Carla van der Spuy praat met mense van 'n gangster wat “nie genoeg vingers en tone het” om te sê hoeveel mense hy gedood het nie tot 'n ma wie se kind sonder waarskuwing aangeval was. Sy laat toe dat mense in hul eie woorde 'n beeld skep van die hoop en wanhoop, onsekerheid en vasberadenheid wat deel is van lewe tussen gangsters.
Met hierdie boek is daar insig tot hoe die gangs ledes kry, sowel as hoe mense probeer om weg te breek daarvan. Daar is insig vanaf 'n polisielid en van die groep wat 'n veel beter rehabilitasiesyfer het as die tronk - want daar is steeds hoop. Hier lê 'n gemeenskap sy hart bloot.

***WINNER OF THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD FOR CRIME NON-FICTION***
Dennis Nilsen, who died in May 2018, murdered at least 15 people before his arrest in 1983. This groundbreaking criminal study of his killings was written with Nilsen's full cooperation, resulting in a fascinating - and horrifying - portrait of the man who worshipped death. In February 1983, residents of Muswell Hill had been plagued by blocked drains.
When a plumber was called to investigate, he discovered a large blockage of biological material. To his horror, it appeared to be formed of human flesh and bones. The next day, resident Dennis Nilsen was arrested. 'Are we talking about one body or two?' a detective asked. Nilsen replied 'Fifteen or sixteen, since 1978. I'll tell you everything.' Within days he had confessed to fifteen gruesome murders over a period of four years. His victims, mostly young gay men at a time when society cared little for them, had never been missed. Brian Masters, with Nilsen's full cooperation, has produced a unique study of a murderer's mind, essential reading for true crime aficionados.

'Killing For Company must stand as one of the most remarkable and accurate accounts ever written of the singular relationship between a mass murderer and a society. Brian Masters]has managed, God knows how, to treat his material with such objectivity and restraint that what we have is not a penny dreadful from the Hammer House of Horror, but a bloody masterpiece.' BERYL BAINBRIDGE

As seen on Discovery ID, these two true-crime thrillers follow a neighbours' quarrel that turns violent and cyber-bullying that explodes in a double murder.

Ann Hoover is a nice woman, but she's come to hate her neighbour. Roy Kirk moved in next door with plans to renovate. But as the weeks go by, his DIY construction turns to shambles and Roy himself becomes sullen and hostile. When Ann takes him to court, Roy's retaliation will be shockingly gruesome.

Jenelle Potter has always been better at connecting through social media than in person. With overprotective parents, she hasn't had many options to meet people until she links up Billy. But her feelings for Billy are unreciprocated, causing Jenelle to start a virtual war - a war that enters the real world.

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'.

He has performed thousands of autopsies, which have helped bring numerous criminals to book. In Autopsy he covers the hard lessons learnt as a rookie pathologist, as well as some of the most unusual cases he's encountered.

Blumenthal takes the reader behind the scenes at the mortuary, describing a typical autopsy and the instruments of the trade. He also shares a few trade secrets, like how to establish when a suicide is more likely to be a homicide.

Even though they cannot speak, the dead have a lot to say - and Blumenthal is there to listen.
