When Johan Booysen hears that the new Provincial Police Chief takes backhanders from a Durban businessman, he decides to give her the benefit of the doubt. But the evidence becomes impossible to ignore and he soon gets dragged down the corridors of power and politics into a web of intrigue, deceit and betrayal that, at times, he has trouble making sense of.

Only when he is arrested, handcuffed and tossed into a cell does Booysen realise just how ruthless those opposed to him are – an opposition he comes to call the ‘cabal’ – and whom he believes have more blood on their hands than the so-called Cato Manor Death Squad with which he is closely associated.

Blood On Their Hands traces Johan Booysen’s life and career – from patrolling the streets of Amanzimtoti in the 1970s to his rise in 2010 to major general and head of KZN’s Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation unit, the Hawks. But his tenure is short-lived. When Booysen decides to take on those so determined to be rid of him, each legal battle he wins is met by hostility and further efforts to shut him out of the of the criminal justice system. But capitulating is not in his DNA…

Strange but true

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 | Review by: Peter C

General Booysen and Jessica Pitchfork have created a really readable indictment. They make clear the lack of integrity present in the current system. Reading this immediately after the two advocates have been struck from the roll, really makes one think. Not only is the taxpayer being ripped off with spurious legal adventuring, corruption is behind it all. Where to from here? Worth reading. I picked it up and read it from cover to cover. Wow!!!!!!
