Who is the serial killer, and what motivates him? When public relations consultant Lucy Khambule, young, beautiful and ambitious, receives a call from Napoleon Dingiswayo - a convicted serial killer, nicknamed "The Butcher" by the media - she sets out to fulfil her childhood dream of writing a book by answering this question. Napoleon is an all too obliging subject, but Lucy discovers that her choice of topic is not for the faint-hearted. Soon after meeting him in Pretoria's notorious C-Max Prison her world is turned upside down by a number of violent and disturbing events. Napoleon is behind bars, but Lucy cannot shake the thought that the brutal killings have something to do with him. Can she uncover the method and the madness behind this monster? As she learns that people have their reasons for being who they are and doing what they do, Lucy must decide what price she is willing to pay to pursue her dream.

About the Author:

Angela Makholwa lives and works in Johannesburg. Red Ink was her bestselling debut novel, first published in 2007. This was followed by the entertaining escapades and sexual misadventures of modern women in The 30th Candle (2009). These first two novels have now been published in new paperback editions. Angela's third novel, Black Widow Society (2013), marks a return to a thrilling, crime-ridden world.

Review:

'With Red Ink Makholwa has taken the South African urban novel to new heights. By turns gritty and shocking yet tender at the core, Red Ink is an important addition to the canon of modern fiction in this country.' - Fred Khumalo
