The best best book I've read this year! 

David Klatzov is a South African forensic scientist who has investigated some 3000 cases since the 1960's.

In this book David takes us through the cases he  was asked to examine during the Apartheid era. He covers the Death Squads, Vlakplaas, the Cradock four murder,The Gugulethu Seven murders and the Trojan Horse Massacre. 

What I  found truly amazing about David  Klatzow is he's unwavering moral compass He is not afraid to call the Apartheid police murderers,when this is the case and pass judgement on the Loyers, judges  and prosecutors who allowed injustices to occur.

In an early chapter he takes on large insurance companies and illustrates how, time and again they will try to avoid paying out genuine claims.He also explains the ins and outs of forensic fire investigation. A section I found particularly interesting.

The book also covers the Brett Kebble, Helderburg and Inge Lotz case

All in all, a fabulous book. It not only informs and entertains but,has a strong moral conscience. David Klatzov is one of the few men who is prepared to take on authority and write about

I am ashamed to say, I caved in to the hype. I am now dumber because of it, and
trust me when I say I do not have an IQ point to spare.

I read the books to see what te fuss was about and I was absolutely bored a few
chapters in. The writing is terrible, much like Twilight, and clearly has signs of an over
used Thesaurus. I dont think I have ever seen the word "mercurial" used so much. I was
sure by the end of it the twist would be that Christian was no longer attracted to Anna
because she had chewed her lip off....or at leastthat was the impression i got since biting her lip her lip eas mentioned every few paragraphs...

If you take out the parts where the female character is blushing or chewing her lips, this book will be down to 50 pages.. Ok, its not the worst book in the world. I will admit that, I have always been intrigued by SMS/BDSM, and there are not many books out there about it, because it is "taboo..." It is really no different than any Mills and Boon romance/sexy novel. They don't alwyas have the best grammar, but in the end its all about sex!!

My biggest gripe is that so many girls i hear talking about it, have at one point saidnthat if their significant other looked at porn, it would make them feel insecure, and if though they have cheated in some way! And also that they do not allow porn in their relationship.

Thats all fine and dandy, if that is how you want to run your life and relationship. But dont be a hipocrite about it. FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY is porn.! Just because it is written and not photographic, doesn't make it less pornographic!!

So,..did I like it???.. Lets just say it left me thirsty...

Anyone who thought mother's day was a let down and is feeling a little depressed needs to read this book!  The usual difficulties I face as a wife and mother pale in comparison to Carolyn Jessop's role as wife of a fundamental "Latter Day Saint" and mother of 8 children. "Escape" is a fascinating autobiography of a woman born into a polygamist cult who starts to question her worth as a woman and mother within the religion.  As the cult grows more and more extreme Carolyn starts to plot a daring escape from her husband, his many other wives over 100 children!

As non-fiction goes this is pretty riveting stuff!  I was anxiously turning pages until way after my bed-time and finished the book with a sense of gratitude for my own freedom of choice and expression.

I would highly recommend this book to every mother!
