On Leopard Rock

Author: Wilbur Smith

About the book:

Ministry of Crime

Author: Mandy Wiener

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.

Die Meesterstuk

Author: Francine Rivers

About the book:

Roman Velasco is ’n suksesvolle Los Angeles-kunstenaar wat oënskynlik alles het wat sy hart begeer – ʼn groot herehuis, geld, vroue en roem. Slegs Grace Moore, sy teësinnige nuwe assistent, weet hoe min hy regtig het. Maar Grace weet nie hoe haar baas in die geheim met sy duiwels stoei nie: deur geboue te teiken as die Bird, ’n berugte maar ongeïdentifiseerde graffiti-kunstenaar – ’n alter ego wat Roman se loopbaan kan verwoes en hom in die tronk kan laat beland.

Soos Roman worstel Grace ook met spoke en geheime van haar eie. Ná ’n rampspoedige huwelik haar lewe totaal van koers afgegooi het, het sy besluit dat liefde nooit weer haar drome sal kniehalter nie. Maar soos sy die enigmatiese man agter die reputasie leer ken, is dit asof hulle gebroke stukke stadig inmekaar begin pas … totdat iets onverwags gebeur wat die verloop van hulle verhouding – en albei se lewe – onherroeplik verander.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Author: Heather Morris

About the book:

In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale – a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer – it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too.

So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.
