HazeBy E. Kruger

Most of us dream of making it big someday. Unfortunately for many of those who do happen to attain celebrity status, fame comes at a price. Brigand Haze, singer, emotional wreck and all-round lost girl learns this the hard way when she accidentally discovers that she has a singing talent worth sharing. But her troubled past and unsteady frame of mind soon comes into serious conflict with the pressures of life in the spotlight, also straining her relationship with the charming Rip, a fellow singer. Can she fight off her inner demons without driving away her friends in the process? Or will she surrender to the darkness that lurks in the deepest, most unexplored corners of her mind?

Her troubled past never ceases to haunt her, and the enormous demands of a life in the limelight causes her to have a somewhat cynical outlook on life, narrated through her own interesting brand of quirky humor, which even sprouts some self-destructing tendencies.

Murder at BridgeBy Anne Austin

Then he rose, and, standing far to one side, picked up the fat volume which lay on the shelf. As he had expected, a bullet whizzed noiselessly across the room and buried itself in the plaster of the wall opposite–a bullet which would have ploughed through his own heart if he had obeyed his first impulse and gone directly to the shelf to obey the instructions in the note.”

A whodunit from the 1930’s. Special Investigator Bonnie Dundee has to investigate a case of murder on actress Nita Selim during a game of bridge. Not only does he have to work through a number of suspects, but he also needs to find the murder weapon, a gun equipped with a silencer.

postheadericon My Life and Work

My Life and WorkBy Henry Ford

Though the title of “My Life and Work” suggests the book to be the autobiography of Henry Ford, this is in fact a manual of business philosophy by one of the world’s greatest industrialists, businessmen, entrepreneurs and visionaries. The book describes how Ford introduced the assembly line, reduced working hours, a minimum wage, the five-day work week, etc. at the beginning of the previous century.

Manufacturing methods such as “Just-in-Time” (JIT) manufacturing are described. The JIT methodology was later on adopted by Toyota in Japan and is in common use today amongst many large manufacturing concerns in the world. Ford’s story and business philosophy is brilliantly chronicled in this biography. Much of Ford’s wisdom has been forgotten today and therefore entrepreneurs and business managers alike would do well to take another look at this classic work on business management.

postheadericon The Great Boer War

The Great Boer WarBy Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle made his reputation as a novelist, but far stranger than fiction is the creator of Sherlock Holmes’ tale of the Boer War in South Africa. The then 40-year-old novelist wanted to see the war first hand as a soldier, but the Victorian army balked at having a popular author wielding a pen in its ranks. The army did accept him as a doctor and Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work with a field hospital in Bloemfontein.

Doyle’s vivid account of the battles is in part thanks to the eye-witness accounts he got from his patients. Doyle has thoroughly mastered the details of the campaign, and presents them in a form that can be easily understood. Furthermore, his descriptions of the various engagements are masterpieces of graphic writing.

The colour rushed in vivid scarlet to her temples. She met his eyes for one fleeting second then closed her own with a gasp and a blind effort to escape that was instantly quelled. For he kissed her–he kissed her–pressing his lips to hers closely and ever more closely, as a man consumed with thirst draining the cup to the last precious drop.

When he let her go, she was burning, quivering, tingling from head to foot as if an electric current were coursing through and through her. And the citadel had fallen. She made no further attempt to keep him out.’
