Suid-Afrikaanse geweldenaars sonder genade (ePub) | Current Affairs & Issues
Human & Rousseau
Despicable deeds of extreme violence are described in these gut-wrenching true South African crime stories. The sons of a missionary who had taken the body parts of their murdered benefactor along as baggage on a train journey were concerned that the movie A case of murder would sensationalise their actions.
Even more gruesome is the businessman and his assistant who had slaughtered and boiled their victim before throwing her into a lion enclosure. Chris Karsten fleshes out the often sketchy newspaper stories and clinical court proceedings to keep his readers engrossed.
