Can drugs, jealousy and money drive a normal 20-year-old to pick up an axe and wipe out most of his family This is the question on everyone’s lips after the brutal Van Breda murders. While Henri tries to prove his innocence in court, the whole country is speculating about whether the Van Breda couple’s own child was the one responsible. With insider access to the family, investigative journalist Julian Jansen – one of the first journalists on the scene – writes about the murders that shook the country.

Due to the court case being postponed this title will only be available end November.

Dinosaurs, Diamonds & Democracy (3rd Ed)

An asteroid the size of Table Mountain crashed into what was to become South Africa over 2 billion years ago, marking the spot. The country’s history since then has always been robust and full of energy. This book takes you in record time from that moment, when the earth’s richest gold reefs were shaped, to the advent of democracy in 1994, another event that stunned the world, and beyond.

Along the way you will encounter some of the most ancient dinosaurs on record, the very first people on the planet, and the first cultures. You will see outsiders moving in to reshape history: hunters and gatherers, cultivators and herders, iron workers from the north, and immigrants from Europe and Asia. They fought and made peace; they stumbled upon gold and diamonds; they rose to the heights of excellence and sank to the depths of oppression, until on one day they all queued as equals to elect a government. That is the story marked by dinosaurs, diamonds and democracy.
