The Street - Exposing A World Of Cops, Bribes And Drug Dealers (Paperback): Paul McNally The Street - Exposing A World Of Cops, Bribes And Drug Dealers (Paperback)

There are no villains here. Award-winning journalist Paul McNally finds corrupt cops, drug dealers, vigilante residents, addicts, torturers, murderers and cops partnered with drug dealers. But no villains.

Raymond is a shop owner on Ontdekkers Road, in Johannesburg, who takes a baseball bat to the dealers when they break his rules. He systematically records in his notebook the police officers who come – all day, every day – to collect their bribe money from the dealers, and is looking for someone to trust. Khaba is a middle-aged police officer who wants a quiet life but whose demons will not leave him in peace. He is trying to regain his trust in what he once regarded as an honourable profession. Wendy is a petite, ageing police reservist who can handle an R5 rifle with confidence, but not the sadness that accompanies her in her daily life – the loss of her police officer husband, brutally murdered by a drug lord, and the addiction that has her adult son in its grip. She is looking for respect and affirmation and for her own life to have meaning.

Through different paths, the lives of Raymond, Khaba and Wendy intersect on the street as their attention is focused on the current power couple – a drug dealer named Obi and Lerato, a police officer. Seemingly untouchable, Obi and Lerato terrorise Ontdekkers, and in the process upset the balance of this already lawless world.

These days when you buy a video game you probably download it on your PC, Xbox or PlayStation, but there was a time before the likes of Call of Duty and Fifa where to get your hands on the latest hit you had to trek down to the shops and hand over your hard-earned cash in return for a cassette tape, cartridge or floppy disk. Now these original formats are back in fashion and collectors are paying huge amounts for rare titles before they disappear into the annals of history. Would you pay GBP1,000 for a cartridge from the 1970s? or are you simply trying to get hold of the games you had as a child, many of which can be picked up for a few pence, but who knows what they will be worth in the future? However you want to build your videogames collection, be it games, original arcade machines or even licenced merchandise, this book shows you where to start, what you should be paying and the best places to get your hands on that elusive title.
