The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2020 - his 25th adventure.
As always, Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there. One morning he ends up in a town near Pleasantville, Tennessee. But there’s nothing pleasant about the place.
In broad daylight Reacher spots a hapless soul walking into an ambush. “It was four against one” . . . so Reacher intervenes, with his own trademark brand of conflict resolution. The man he saves is Rusty Rutherford, an unassuming IT manager, recently fired after a cyberattack locked up the town’s data, records, information . . . and secrets. Rutherford wants to stay put, look innocent, and clear his name. Reacher is intrigued. There’s more to the story.
The bad guys who jumped Rutherford are part of something serious and deadly, involving a conspiracy, a cover-up, and murder—all centered on a mousy little guy in a coffee-stained shirt who has no idea what he’s up against.
Rule one: if you don’t know the trouble you’re in, keep Reacher by your side.

A group of women at a specific period in the history of Southern Africa find their family life under the pressures of capitalist modernity and apartheid.
These ordinary, 'private' stories are anchored to the more powerful public stories of Penelope of ancient Greek mythology, who waited eighteen years while her husband Odysseus was away, and Winnie Mandela who waited for twenty-seven years.
The life story of Winnie Mandela remains one of the great unfolding dramas of our times; a tale of triumphs and tragedies that is only just beginning to be examined.

Emil Coetzee, a civil servant in his fifties, is washing blood off his hands when the ceasefire is announced.
Like everyone else, he feels unmoored by the end of the conflict. War had given him his sense of purpose, his identity.
But why has Emil’s life turned out so different from his parents’, who spent cheery Friday evenings flapping and flailing the Charleston or dancing the foxtrot? What happened to the Emil who used to wade through the singing elephant grass of the savannah, losing himself in it? Prize-winning novelist Siphiwe Gloria Ndlovu traces Emil’s life from boyhood to manhood – from his days at a privileged boarding school with the motto ‘It is here that boys become the men of history’, to his falling in love with the ever-elusive Marion, whose free-spirited nature has dire consequences for his heart – all the while showing how Emil becomes a man apart.
Set in a southern African country that is never named, this powerful tale of human fallibility – told with empathy, generosity and a light touch – is an excursion into the interiority of the coloniser.
An award-winning historian and journalist tells the very human story of apartheid's afterlife, tracing the fates of South African insurgents, collaborators, and the security police through the tale of the clandestine photo album used to target apartheid's enemies. From the 1960s until the early 1990s, the South African security police and counterinsurgency units collected over 7,000 photographs of apartheid's enemies.
The political rogue's gallery was known as the "terrorist album," copies of which were distributed covertly to police stations throughout the country. Many who appeared in the album were targeted for surveillance. Sometimes the security police tried to turn them; sometimes the goal was elimination. All of the albums were ordered destroyed when apartheid's violent collapse began. But three copies survived the memory purge.
With full access to one of these surviving albums, award-winning South African historian and journalist, Jacob Dlamini investigates the story behind these images: their origins, how they were used, and the lives they changed. Extensive interviews with former targets and their family members testify to the brutal and often careless work of the police. Although the police certainly hunted down resisters, the terrorist album also contains mug shots of bystanders and even regime supporters.
Their inclusion is a stark reminder that apartheid's guardians were not the efficient, if morally compromised, law enforcers of legend but rather blundering agents of racial panic. With particular attentiveness to the afterlife of apartheid, Dlamini uncovers the stories of former insurgents disenchanted with today?s South Africa, former collaborators seeking forgiveness, and former security police reinventing themselves as South Africa's newest export: "security consultants" serving as mercenaries for Western nations and multinational corporations.
The Terrorist Album is a brilliant evocation of apartheid's tragic caprice, ultimate failure, and grim legacy.

South Africa, 1987. When Leon, a white 19-year-old prison guard commits an inexplicable act of violence, killing seven black men in a hail of bullets, the outcome of the trial - and the court’s sentence - seems a foregone conclusion.
Hotshot lawyer John Weber reluctantly takes on the seemingly unwinnable case. A passionate opponent of the death penalty, John discovers that young Leon worked on death row in the nation’s most notorious prison, under traumatic conditions: befriending the inmates over the years while having to assist their eventual execution. As the court hearings progress, the case offers John the opportunity to put the entire system of legally sanctioned murder on trial. How can one man take such a dual role of friend and executioner, becoming both shepherd and butcher?
Inspired by true events, this is the story that puts death penalty on trial and changes history.
Understanding Psychopathology: South African Perspectives 3e provides a solid introduction to the study of mental disorders that incorporates socio-cultural, psychological and biomedical dimensions. It refers to criteria from both the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5) and the International Classifications of Diseases (ICD–10) to describe and define mental disorders. It also looks at the ICD–11, and how this new version has been harmonised with the DSM–5.
The third edition of this book, previously published as Abnormal Psychology revised second edition, presents South African debates and data to ensure that it is relevant to the local context. In addition, research from the rest of Africa has been integrated into the book to show how other countries in our region are grappling with topical issues.
This book is aimed at second- and third-year students following courses in Psychopathology or Abnormal Psychology as part of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Social Sciences degree at Universities. It has been written by academics and practitioners from across South Africa.
Auditing Fundamentals in a South African Context 2e is a practical, applied and engaging introductory textbook that supports students throughout the undergraduate level of the Auditing curriculum.

The text offers a clear pedagogical framework, which supports applied learning and develops independent, critical and reflective engagement with the subject matter. A continuing case study, which follows each stage of the audit of a South African company, demonstrates the practical application of learned principles and the integration of the auditing process with a typical audit client's business.
The second edition is comprehensively revised to reflect all relevant, recent changes in the requirements of legislation, financial reporti ng and auditing pronouncements and codes, and addresses the new Code of Professional Conduct which was issued by the SA Institute of Chartered Accountants in the final quarter of 2018.
Additional educational resources support teaching and learning, assisting students to develop the academic skills required to master their studies.
It begins with one body. A pair of medical examiners find themselves facing a dead man who won't stay dead. It spreads quickly.
In a Midwestern trailer park, an African American teenage girl and a Muslim immigrant battle newly-risen friends and family. On a US aircraft carrier, living sailors hide from dead ones while a fanatic preaches the gospel of a new religion of death. At a cable news station, a surviving anchor keeps broadcasting, not knowing if anyone is watching, while his undead colleagues try to devour him. In DC, an autistic federal employee charts the outbreak, preserving data for a future that may never come.
Everywhere, people are targeted by both the living and the dead. We think we know how this story ends. We. Are. Wrong.
“Die lang man sonder skaduwee,” so het die oumense gepraat as hulle die grondpaaie beskryf het wat oor die rug van vlaktes loop soos linte wat plase en veeposte en dorpe aan mekaar bind. Dit was ’n raaisel wat hulle vir mekaar gevra het om ’n stram geselskap aan die gang te kry.
Met diť raaisel begin Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres, aktrise en radiopersoonlikheid, haar nuwe boek nŠ die verskyning van Kruidjie roer my, haar boek oor Karookruie wat sy plek as ’n klassieke werk in Afrikaans ingeneem het. Sy werk reeds vir jare in die Karoo saam met oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-medisyneman. Oom Johannes leer haar hoe om Karookruie te gebruik om mense se lywe en siele te genees en van heinde en ver kom besoekers om hier by hulle gesond te kom raak.
In Die lang man sonder skaduwee sit Antoinette haar roeping as geneser voort. Vol begrip en deernis word Karookruie ingespan om allerlei kwale te genees. Maar nou ondersoek sy ook die genesende krag wat in die ou stories, raaisels en rympies van die Griekwa-mense skuil, want dikwels het ’n fisieke probleem ’n emosionele oorsprong en is dit stories wat die hart kan genees. Die langman sonder skaduwee is volksbesit: waardevolle inheemse kennis liefdevol opgeteken vir lees en herlees.
Balancing developmental, clinical-diagnostic, and experimental approaches to child and adolescent psychopathology, Eric Mash and David Wolfe's ABNORMAL CHILD PSYCHOLOGY is one of the most up-to-date, authoritative, and comprehensive books in its market.
The seventh edition is organized to reflect DSM-5 categories, dimensional approaches to classification, and evidence-based assessment and treatment approaches. The authors trace developmental pathways for each disorder and show how child and adolescent psychopathology involves biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors interacting with a youth's environment. Case histories, examples, and first-person accounts illustrate the categorical and dimensional approaches used to describe disorders.
The authors also consistently illustrate how troubled children behave in their natural settings: homes, schools, and communities.
Leon van Nierop se blitsverkoper Plesierengel verskyn twintig jaar gelede en dit is in hierdie boek waar duisende lesers vir Tristan Hansen ontmoet, ’n engel van plesier, ’n manlike prostituut waarvoor Johannesburg se rykste vroue duisende rande betaal.
Dit is egter nie die volle verhaal nie: hoe het die enigmatiese Tristan tot hier gekom? In Katelknaap kry die leser ’n blik op die vroue wat hom gevorm het en van genot geleer het. Veral saam met een vrou, ver weg in Positano, ’n dorpie in ItaliŽ, kon hy hom loswikkel van die beklemming van sy konserwatiewe ma wat hom nŠ sy pa se selfmoord alleen grootmaak.
Maar dit was ook nie die laaste beklemming nie. Op die vooraand van Tristan se 27ste verjaardag vind ons hom in sy luukse dakwoonstel in Maboneng, onrustig nŠ ’n vreemde foonoproep vol dreigende stilte. Terwyl hy kan voel hoe hy deur ’n verkyker dopgehou word en dat die afloerder met iets anders as begeerte na hom kyk, reik sy herinneringe terug na gelukkiger dae in Positano, en na sy opleiding in die kuns van liefdemaak.

They thought we were safe. They were wrong.
Four years ago, two girls went looking for monsters on Bodmin Moor. Only one came back. Lee thought she'd lost Mal, but now she's miraculously returned. But what happened that day on the moors? And where has she been all this time? Mal's reappearance hasn't gone unnoticed by MI5 officers either, and Lee isn't the only one with questions.
Julian Sabreur is investigating an attack on top physicist Kay Amal Khan. This leads Julian to clash with agents of an unknown power - and they may or may not be human. His only clue is grainy footage, showing a woman who supposedly died on Bodmin Moor.
Dr Khan's research was theoretical; then she found cracks between our world and parallel Earths. Now these cracks are widening, revealing extraordinary creatures. And as the doors crash open, anything could come through.
