About this book:

News of the sensational prison escape of the murderer and ‘Facebook rapist’ Thabo Bester, assisted by his lover, celebrity doctor Nandipha Magudumana, shocked South Africa. In this book, Marecia Damons and Daniel Steyn, the journalists who first exposed the scam, tell the full story, from Bester and Magudumana’s early lives and their unlikely love affair, his faked death and the tragedy surrounding their many victims, to a web of complicity in South Africa’s broken prison system.
