Heist is an in-depth look at 10 of South Africa’s most audacious heists.

From the 1996 ‘burning man’ case, where four security guards were burnt alive in their armoured vehicle after a ferocious fight-back against highly trained mercenaries, to the 2016 robbery of a cash centre in Witbank, where a gang made off with almost R107 million after impersonating police officers, this is an impeccably researched reconstruction of an endemic crime phenomenon that some analysts warn could bring South Africa to its knees. Using the information gleaned from thousands of pages of court documents and press reports, as well as interviews with scores of police officers, crime-intelligence agents, prosecutors, defence lawyers, researchers, journalists, security guards and the criminals themselves, Heist gives unprecedented insight into a type of crime that increased by a staggering 49 per cent in the first eight months of 2017 alone.

As informative and thought-provoking as it is distressing, this is a book by an investigative journalist at the top of her game.

Sat, 12 May 2018 | Review by: Andrew

A good book, a timely book, and an informative book. I was only disappointed by the some slack editing (certain phrases repeated again and again) and by the author focusing on 10 specific crimes with a peripheral background, rather than a general overview with reference to the 10 crimes.

Heist South Africa's Cash-in-Transit Epidemic Uncovered

Wed, 30 May 2018 | Review by: Lynda T

A book well worth reading as it uncovers the truth behind the failure to stop the huge rise of this type of crime. Until all the rot in our various departments of law and order and even the judicial system is removed these heists will continue.
