Dead at Daybreak
by Deon Meyer
An antiques dealer is burned with a blow torch, then killed, execution-style - a single shot to the back of the head with an M16. The contents of the safe are missing and the only clues are a scrap of blank paper and the unusual weapon used, the choice of mercenaries, not burglars. Now ex-cop Zatopek 'Zed' van Heerden has fourteen days in which to fill in the blanks in this dead man's past - a past which only seems to begin in 1983...Set against the backdrop of a society on the verge of breakdown, "Dead at Daybreak" spins the reader from the lush suburbs of Capetown, to a gripping climax in the searing heat of the Veldt.

Never Say Goodbye
by Rajiv Seth
Meet Aakash - a doctor - single, contended, happy in his world of patients. And then, all of a sudden ...

"Have I fallen in love? he asked himself . He knew the answer And he knew that he was walking into a maze. It wasn't as if she was unattached. She was married - and she was 'committed', as she had said. The maze would be endless, and the logical thing was to get out. But when you get into a maze, how do you get out? Which path takes you out and which path takes you deeper in?

And meet Anjali - also a doctor, always looking for more from life, driven by an urge to do much more than just medicine, always reaching for the stars. And then, she meets Aakash...

"Let me tell you one thing, if you haven't already understood" she said "This is my house- this is where I stay Home is where I live - where my heart and soul live. And I do hope you know where that is!"

Very quickly they move from being just friends, to becoming soul-mates, and then to being lovers.

Will their relationship remain as entwined as the DNA in human cells? Or will it explode into nothing-ness?
