Jazz painist Bent lives in squalor in Observatory. After a gig one night, the enigmatic Leonard Fry offers him a vast sum of money to play at a private party.

Bent accepts and duly plays the piano. After the guests have departed, Leonard Fry makes him a Faustian proposition: he, Leonard Fry, his appetites jaded by the pleasures his enormous wealth has afforded him, wants to undertake an experiment: he wants to lock himself in a bare room, containing only the most basic essentials, for a year. Bent’s role in this endeavour would be to live in Fry’s mansion for the year, passing Fry three meals a day through a slot in the door, without any other interaction, even – especially – if he begs to be released. When Bent locks Fry in the room, the strange trip begins.

But there’s a mysterious stranger lurking outside the house, and Bent soon begins to wonder who the real subject of Fry’s bizarre experiment is.

Steve Hofmeyr word as skrywer van Afrikaanse fiksie hoog aangeslaan. Sy Vier briewe vir Jan Ellis en Laaste dans, Drienie is deur literêre kritici aangeprys. Nou ontpop dié gewilde en omstrede sanger en akteur as misdaadskrywer met Die onaantasbares.

Hy raak verlief op Tessa Mallet, wat later self in die visier van Die Sluiper se voormalige kliënte beland wanneer hulle besluit om van hom ontslae te raak. Nadat Tessa in hulle liefdesnes vermoor en Die Sluiper vir dood agtergelaat word, is wraak voor die hand liggend. Ná ’n uitgerekte herstelproses begin hy jag maak op die groep mense wat agter die moord op Tessa sit. Hofmeyr is ’n vaardige verteller wat lesers op ’n aksiebelaaide avontuurtog neem terwyl die adrenalien teen ’n hoë tempo vloei.

Reine Duvenage, ’n tweedejaar kunsstudent en finalis in die universiteit se debutantekompetisie, trek die aandag van ’n sluipjagter wat jong vrouens teiken. Sy oorleef ’n wreedaardige aanranding, maar hou emosionele en fisieke letsels oor. Pieter Taljaard, die speurder wat die saak moet oplos, se ondersoek lei hom na verskeie mans met wie sy in kontak was.

Gedurende haar herstelproses kwalifiseer Reine deur afstandonderrig as onderwyser. Sy aanvaar as Renette Mouton ʼn pos by ’n plattelandse hoërskool in die laeveld omdat die jagter steeds bedrywig is ná twee jaar.

Haar poging om anoniem te bly en nie weer ’n slagoffer te word nie, word bemoeilik toe mans uit haar verlede onverwags in die dorp opdaag en die sluipjagter haar opnuut begin treiter. Onseker oor die identiteit van die sluipjagter wantrou sy almal, ook Charl de Jongh, die finale jaar kliniese assistent wat haar behandel het, Jacques Ritsen, die verteenwoordiger van Frey Skoonheidshuis wat haar geborg het, Francois Booyens en Carlo von Brandis van Erasmus Foto-ateljee wat haar foto’s geneem het, en die ontwerper, Giorgio van Jolie Mam’selle Boetiek wat haar rok ontwerp het vir die debutantebal. Selfs Stefan Treurnicht, die blinde klavierstemmer lyk vir haar verdag.

Ondanks die teenwoordigheid van haar troue waghond beland sy weer in die sluipjagter se strik. Kan Pieter Taljaard die leidrade betyds ontrafel om ’n moord te voorkom?

1782: In the bustling settlement at the Cape of Good Hope, traders, politicians, farmers and fortune-seekers compete for goods, land and power. It is here that Geert Baardwijk, a wealthy Dutch heir, finds himself drawn to Lena, a young slave he has inherited from his father.

Bartered and sold into slavery as a child, Lena pines for the Madagascan highlands from within the cloistered confines of her master’s townhouse. When Geert marries a woman from the upper strata of Cape society to preserve his wealth and status, he is forced to confront his own responsibilities and failings, as well as the true meaning of love and fatherhood.

Spanning more than eighty years, Softness Of The Lime tells of traditions old and emerging, at a time in the Cape when competition for ownership of everything – including people – was at its peak. Drawing on the history of her own ancestors, Maxine Case mesmerises with this compelling story of passion and integrity, love and betrayal.

Set in the Cape, The Enumerations tells the story of Noah Groome, a seventeen year-old boy who suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and his family. Kate, his mother, bears the brunt of the parenting burden as his successful but emotionally blank father, Dominic, secretly deals with the demons lurking in his past. Noah’s sister Maddie is his ally and protector, but beneath the surface she too is profoundly affected by her brother’s condition.

As the story opens, we are tipped straight into Noah’s mania: the neurotic numbering of everything from breaths to steps to the tiles on the bathroom wall. The counting – everything in fives – is his way of managing his anxiety. Specifically, it is his way of managing the controlling voice in his head.

Unsurprisingly, Noah is an object of derision at school. When he rises to the bait and breaks the arm of a bully, a chain of events is set in motion that will see Noah sent to a treatment centre and his family forced to confront the dark secrets lurking beneath their seemingly perfect veneer.

The authors spent time finding out how South African women respond to this phenomenon referred to as 'over 40'. The result is a title that a woman would give to herself, to a friend or to a daughter going through this 'big' transition period that involves psychological and physiological change that brings about much contemplation.

'Fabulously 40 and beyond' is written primarily from an extensive base of questionnaires as well as from feedback from media work during the book's development. The authors then synthesised and wrote this title from an extensive base of questionnaires and from feedback from media work to bring on important themes including identity, spirituality, body, family and other animals, leisure (and pleasure). At the centre is a certain power that women come into as they move into their 40's and beyond which is a clear measure of where women in their 40s are at. Clearly, the title demonstrates that these women have humour, lightness, know how much they own, and do juggle things to get things in life to go the way they want. The book offers practical advice as well as relevant statistics.

During the research phase 'Fabulously 40 and beyond' saw much media interest including a feature on SAFM Otherwise, in Femina magazine and on Radio 702. This is no doubt a much-needed book that fills a gap dealing with this often difficult or traumatic stage in women's lives.

Behind the closed doors of their suburban Johannesburg home, Themba and Ayanda Hlatshwayo, both legal professionals, are beset by deep tensions that claw with relentless intensity at the polished facade of their lives. Ayanda seeks solace in dance classes, while Themba is increasingly drawn to the male companionship he finds at a book club. With wit and sympathy, The God Who Made Mistakes explores the origins of Themba's unease and confused sense of identity.

It takes us back to a river bank in Alex, the township where he grew up, and to a boy he once knew who met a violent death there. As the story peels back the painful layers of recollection, Themba’s domineering mother, Differentia, has a major decision to make. When developers set their sights on buying the family home and building a supermarket in its place, tendrils of envy and greed begin to curl out of unexpected quarters, as the unscrupulous seek to grab a share of the spoils. Back yard tenant, Tinyiko, with her short skirts and questionable morality, and Themba’s disgraced, unemployed elder brother, Bongani, begin to plot and scheme, while across town Themba’s fragile marriage faces its biggest challenge. When his past walks unexpectedly into his present, it threatens to blow apart his carefully constructed world.

The God Who Made Mistakes is a powerful, poignant story of unexpressed longings which, when finally uttered, can no longer be contained.

Dark traces is the English translation of Martin Steyn’s first suspense novel, Donker spoor. When a child is murdered, it always seems as if a light has been extinguished in a parent’s eyes. They find her decomposing body in the veld. A teenager. She was raped and tortured for days. She was hanged. She wasn’t the first. The South African Police Service’s Warrant Officer Jan Magson, estranged from his son and still grieving for his wife, is assigned to the case. He has to look the mothers and fathers in the eye. He has to answer their questions. And he can’t. Headlines question the police’s ability to protect the community from this evil. A newspaper prints a mother’s heart-wrenching letter to the killer. A father offers a substantial reward. And every time another lead reaches a dead end, Magson finds himself looking down at another dead girl. Winner of the 2015 ATKV Prize for Suspense Fiction, Martin Steyn’s Dark traces deals with two sides of homicide: sadistic murder and euthanasia: killing for pleasure and killing for love.

Under fire from Boer snipers and artillery, distrusted by the British forces, the two old soldiers will find their survival skills tested to the hilt as they search for the missing boy in this epic tale of heroism and treachery, love and loyalty.

Ná die sesde Dorslandtrek het hulle tussen Angola, Suidwes-Afrika, Suid-Afrika en selfs Kenia rondgeswerf en verdere avonture oor die hele Suider-Afrika beleef. Sommige De Jagers het in 1928 van Angola na Suidwes-Afrika getrek en hulle daar gevestig, terwyl ander eers in 1958 uit Angola gerepatrieer is.
