From 1994 to 2000, when South Africa was a young democracy, the country was stalked by a succession of brutal serial killers. Psychologist Micki Pistorius became the first profiler for the South African Police Service, playing a vital role in identifying and interrogating these killers, as well as training detectives nationally and in other countries. She broke ground with her theory on the origin of serial killers and is considered a trailblazer in her field.

Catch Me a Killer details the cases she worked on - from the Station Strangler and the Phoenix Cane Killer to Boetie Boer and the Saloon Killer. The book also features legendary detectives such as Piet Byleveld and Suiker Britz, as well as the FBI's Robert Ressler.

Released alongside a major TV series based on the book, this new edition of Catch Me a Killer includes a new chapter and up-to-date information about some of the cases, such as the parole of Norman Afzal Simons in 2023. This is essential reading for all true crime aficionados.

At the very dawn of the country's brave new democracy, Cape Town was at war. Pagad, which started as a community protest action against crime, had mutated into a sinister vigilante group wreaking death and destruction across the city. Between 1996 and 2001, there were more than 400 bombs - most famously at the popular Planet Hollywood restaurant at the V&A Waterfront - and there were countless targeted hits on drug lords and gang bosses.

The police were at their wit's end. The new ANC government was alarmed. The citizens of Cape Town were living in fear.

Mark Shaw tells the incredible tale of how the police's response pulled together former foes - struggle cadres and the apartheid security apparatus - to break the Pagad death squads. It is a story that has never been told in full and was not possible until recently, when many were released from prison or had retired and were finally willing to talk openly about this revealing chapter in South Africa's recent history.

Patrick Radden Keefe's work has been recognized by prizes including the Orwell Prize and the Baillie Gifford for his meticulously reported, hypnotically engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. Rogues brings together a dozen of his most celebrated articles from the New Yorker. As Keefe observes in his preface: 'They reflect on some of my abiding preoccupations: crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial.'

Keefe explores the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines; examines whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a liar; spends time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain; chronicles the quest to bring down a cheerful international black-market arms merchant; and profiles a passionate death-penalty attorney who represents the 'worst of the worst', among other works of literary journalism.

The appearance of his byline in the New Yorker is always an event; collected here for the first time readers can see how his work forms an always enthralling yet also deeply human portrait of criminals and rascals, as well as those who stand up to them.

In 2021, South Africa was introduced to notorious serial killer, Rosemary Ndlovu. Rosemary worked as a police sergeant in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni. Despite taking an oath to serve and protect, in court it emerged that she had arranged the murders of her lover and at least five members of her family. For some murders she hired hitmen, others she carried out herself.
Regarded as our nation's most significant female serial killer since Daisy de Melker, Rosemary killed for money. During the trial that gripped the nation, it emerged how Rosemary, an avid gambler, duped insurance companies by opening fraudulent insurance policies on all her victims. They were bludgeoned, beaten, poisoned or strangled to death. Her killing spree ended when three hitmen she hired told police about her plot to murder her sister, Joyce, and her five children by burning them to death in their RDP house. While Daisy was hanged, Rosemary was handed multiple life sentences which means she will likely die behind bars.

Every contact leaves a trace - a singular strand of hair or a tiny droplet of blood can be the silent witness at a crime scene. Locard's Exchange Principle underpins all forensic science and holds that the perpetrator of a crime will bring something to the crime scene and leave with something from it.

Forensic experts use this principle daily to catch murderers and assailants. In Risking Life for Death, South African forensic pathologist Ryan Blumenthal offers a masterclass in this singular forensic technique based on real-life case studies. With more than 20 years' experience in the field, Blumenthal explains how to look for clues and traces, and how what he does not find at autopsy is often more important than what he does find. In other words, the absence of evidence can sometimes be of greater value than the presence of evidence.

His account also highlights the dangers forensic pathologists are exposed to daily. As they try to unravel the puzzle of someone's death, forensic pathologists often face life-threatening infections, toxic gasses and accidental injury, in effect risking their life for someone else's death.

An understanding of Locard's Exchange Principle can help you become a medical detective in your own life and can even help you be a happier person, Blumenthal argues.

RYAN BLUMENTHAL is a forensic pathologist with more than twenty years' experience in the field, and he is based in South Africa. His book Autopsy: Life in the Trenches with a Forensic Pathologist in Africa, which was published by Jonathan Ball Publishers in August 2020, became a non-fiction bestseller in South Africa. His eight-part documentary Lightning Pathologist was aired from 9 to 20 November 2020 on People°s Weather (Channel 180) on DStv. It was viewed by over 2,2 million people.

Most serial murderers undeniably spring from abusive or neglected childhoods, and/or are potentially predisposed to various genetic, sociopathic or schizophrenic afflictions, rendering the root cause of their murderous behaviour a complex, lethal combination of factors. What is less credited, however, is the role of pathological narcissism and narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) in the making of a serial killer.

Narcissistic rage, sexual narcissism, necrophilia and cannibalism are all driven by a need to control and satisfy a grandiose sense of entitlement for personal pleasure, and of those, narcissistic rage is possibly the most dangerous factor of all in the understanding of serial rape and murder. In this riveting book, the author explores the role of NPD through the lived experiences of various serial murderers and showcases the profiles of both infamous and lesser-known serial offenders from South Africa and around the world.

From the blatant, callous criminality of the likes of Jason Rohde, Dina Rodrigues and Henri van Breda to the unspeakable cruelty of serial rapists and murderers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Kobus Geldenhuys (the Norwood killer) and Don Steenkamp (the Griekwastad murderer), this book reveals the role pathological narcissism might have played in some of the most notorious and gruesome criminal cases of our times. Just one warning: Don't read this book at night!

A true crime classic about Daily de Melker in ragtime Joburg - a city of murder, mayhem and gold.

Ted Botha takes the reader into the underbelly of Johannesburg in the 1920s and 1930s as he traces the fascinating story of the mysterious Daisy de Melker who was hanged for poisoning her son. Many also believed she poisoned two husbands for their life insurance money.

In the shadow of ever-growing mine dumps, she went about her business quietly and unnoticed - the most unlikely of killers. Even though people close to her kept dying, no one suspected a thing for twenty years. When someone finally spoke up, it led to one of South Africa's most sensational trials.

De Melker's story unfolds in tandem with those of colourful Johannesburg characters of the same period such as the Foster Gang, Herman Charles Bosman, the dashing conman Baron von Veltheim and a Bonny-and-Clyde-style couple, Dicky Mallalieu and Gwen Tolputt. Some cross paths with each other and also those of famous writers of era such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sarah Gertrude Millin.

Na die verskyning van In die skadu van die galg kon die outeur nie afsluiting en berusting vind nie. Hy plaas die Wes-Kaapse Moord-en-Roof Eenheid asook sy kollegas onder andere op die voorgrond met sake deur hulle ondersoek.
Van die 22 hoofstukke in die boek figureer hy ook as ondersoekbeampte en bevelvoerder. Ses vroue moordenaars word op die voorgrond geplaas asook twee plaasmoorde. Hy besoek meer selfdood as moord tonele, gevolglik 'n hoofstuk oor selfdood.
Sy eerstehandse kennis van die bende kultuur (binne en buite die gevangenisse) boekstaaf hy in 'n hoofstuk daaroor. Die Gugulethu 7 waarby Vlakplaas betrek is laat hom wroeg oor tonele wat hy moes dokumenteer.
In die laaste hoofstuk skryf hy oor hoe hy en sy familie gemarganaliseer was toe 'n senior ofisier hom na die galg wou stuur.
