Twee plaasdramas oor grense, tradisies, grond en bloed.

Melk & Vleis

Dis 1996. Suid-Afrika het verander, maar sekere huishoudings nog nie. ’n Suksesvolle aktuaris los haar werk in die stad nadat sy verlief raak op ’n sjarmante jong boer. Sy probeer haar bes om in te pas by die kleindorpse gemeenskap, haarself in haar huwelik te laat geld, en die familieplaas van ondergang te red. Nadat ’n erfgenaam gebore word, begin dinge egter op die plaas uitrafel ...

Bloed & Bodem

Jana besoek haar pa en oom op die familieplaas. Die plaas gaan agteruit en haar pa sit meer op die kroegstoel as die kerkbank. Een nag los hy in sy dronkenskap die hek oop en dit word ‘n aand wat niemand sal vergeet nie... ’n Verhaal oor plaasaanvalle en die desperate nalatenskap van Afrikanermans wat nooit kon heel nadat hulle aan die “verkeerde” kant van die apartheidstryd geveg het nie.

It all begins on a Monday, when four people board an elevator in a Manhattan office tower. Each presses a button for their floor, but the elevator proceeds, non-stop, to the top. Once there, it stops for a few seconds, and then plummets. Right to the bottom of the shaft. It appears to be a horrific, random tragedy. But then, on Tuesday, it happens again, in a different Manhattan skyscraper. And when Wednesday brings yet another high-rise catastrophe, one of the most vertical cities in the world - and the nation's capital of media, finance, and entertainment - is plunged into chaos.

Clearly, this is anything but random. This is a cold, calculated bid to terrorize the city. And it's working. Fearing for their lives, thousands of men in women working in offices across the city refuse to leave their homes. Commerce has slowed to a trickle. Emergency calls to the top floors of apartment buildings go unanswered. Who is behind this? What do these deadly acts of sabotage have to do with the fingerless body found on the High Line?

Two seasoned New York detectives and a straight-shooting journalist must race against time to find the answers . . .

Pulsating with tension, Elevator Pitch is a riveting tale of psychological suspense that is all too plausible . . . and will chill readers to the bone.
