BLACK WIDOW SOCIETY


IN 1994 WHEN SOUTH AFRICANS were finally seeing the light of freedom and independence, three well-respected businesswomen - Talullah Ntuli, Edna Whithead and Nkosazana Khumalo - formed the Black Widow Society, a secret organisation aimed at liberating women trapped in emotionally and physically abusive relationships by assisting in 'eliminating' their errant husbands.

For fifteen years the Black Widow Society operated undetected, impeccably run by The Triumvirate with the help of their suave and mysterious hired gun, Mzwakhe Khuzwayo, a slick ex-convict meticulous in his responsibilities. But as the secret organisation recruits more members, the wheels of this welloiled machine are threatening to fall off. Will Talullah's controlling streak or Nkosazana's unfettered material aspirations jeopardise the future of the Black Widow Society? Or perhaps one of the new recruits, unsettled by the reality of the elimination of her former husband, will lose her nerve and expose the workings of the group after all this time?

BOOK REVIEW


"With the gritty streets of Joburg as a backdrop, Angela Makholwa delves with assurance into that most deadly of South African preoccupations: serial murder. Her protagonist is chillingly at home in the corridors of C-Max in a psychological thriller you might prefer to read with the lights on."

RED INK


WHEN PUBLIC RELATIONS CONSULTANT and ex-journalist Lucy Khambule - young, beautiful and ambitious - receives an unexpected call from Napoleon Dingiswayo - a convicted serial killer, nicknamed The Butcher by the media - her life takes a dramatic turn. Dingiswayo wants Lucy to tell his story. Intrigued by Dingiswayo's approach, Lucy decides to take this opportunity to fulfil her life-long dream of writing a book, but it comes at a cost she could never have imagined.

After their initial contact, Dingiswayo becomes an all-too-obliging subject and Lucy soon discovers that her choice of topic is not for the faint-hearted. Soon after meeting him in Pretoria's notorious C-Max Prison, Lucy's world is turned upside down by a series of violent and disturbing events.

Dingiswayo is behind bars, but Lucy begins to suspect that the brutal attacks may have something to do with him. Who is this frightening man, and what motivates him? As Lucy learns that there is more to Dingiswayo's story than the police discovered, she is forced to decide what price she is willing to pay to pursue her dream.

Red Ink is a gripping thriller. Set in present-day Johannesburg, it has a distinctly local flavour and brings the city to life through all its contrasts and contradictions.

BOOK REVIEW


"Makholwa's narrative is catchy and powerful. This novel, a first by the author, however, is a good read and tells a believable South Africa story. Red Ink definitely belongs on my book shelf."
