In Enver Eleven's city, fair-skinned people are a rarity and have been for centuries. They work as acrobats and jugglers or apply skin-darkening creams to conceal their condition. Johannesburg is the city that survived the end of the world thanks to the shelter provided by the thousands of miles of mining tunnels running beneath it. It's Enver's job at the Agency to make sure that the end of the world doesn't come again. He and his mentor, Shanumi Six, specialize in the hot spots of the twentieth century -Marrakech, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo -where they travel in search of an elusive enemy, guided by the collective intelligence of the Agency's thinking machines which limit time travel to the bare minimum. When Shanumi vanishes on an assignment, Enver finds himself in the middle of a catastrophe which will require him to put his assumptions to the test in an atmosphere of conspiracy and intrigue.

Captain Albertus Beeslaar has had enough of the Kalahari. He is about to hand in his resignation, but before doing so he is sent into the heart of an ancient San community: an elder has died after being released from police custody and the San blame the police. The small town of Witdraai borders on the world-famous Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, where the last of the Kalahari San eke out a living. A violent attack on a German tourist has unsettled the whole town - a case that is rubbing up Beeslaar's new colleague, Colonel Koekoes Mentoor, the wrong way. She wants to turn her back on Witdraai and the bad memories the place holds for her.

As the heat rises, all hell breaks loose: a policeman is murdered; deep-seated corruption is threatening a major land-restitution plan for the San; and a mysterious killer is prowling the red dunes. Amid all the controversy, Kytie Rooi, a cleaner at a luxury guesthouse in Upington and self-appointed protector of a strange street child, is fleeing into the deadly heat of the desert with her charge. In this world, places of safety are dangerously elusive.

Homeland is the translation of the Number One Bestseller Tuisland, Karin Brynard's critically acclaimed and most ambitious novel to date.

Tertius de Klerk: Afrikaner, hapless academic and potential dinosaur under pressure from all sides dreams of escape. When a drunken one-night stand with a student turns into a Facebook embarrassment and an altercation, Tertius is convinced the time for escape has come.
Like his great-grandfather Basjan before him, he flees South Africa for Argentina. It is an act of desperation, but also of adventure: this is his opportunity to look up his long-lost relations on the windswept plains of Patagonia where he might, finally, connect with the earth and make a man of himself. Unknowingly he sets in motion an imitation of his ancestor's cycle of fleeing, chasing and being chased.

Tertius and Basjan's reasons are similar but different. Both times, there is a woman in pursuit, yet their motives could hardly be further apart.

Patagonia makes use of a double time setting, with Basjan's story taking place during 1902-1940 in the Free State and in Patagonia. The 2015 events occur in Stellenbosch and in the Chabot region of Patagonia, where Afrikaans is spoken to this day.
