FIX - The titanium people and the Bellini illumination

1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star
Corruption in high places plagues South Africa. Threats, a drive-by shooting and ill-health seemingly silence two government critics – the leader of a tribe made wealthy by titanium and his wife. But they and an inner circle go on the offensive against the corrupt. And an angry veteran of the liberation struggle turns to art to convey his anti-corruption message – even from the grave. More

About Michael Kerkhoff

Michael Kerkhoff was born and schooled in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. He and his wife live in Cape Town, not far from their daughter and granddaughter but many hours from their son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter and grandsons in Canada. Their home is not far from a golf course and tennis courts where he is, variously, a regular victim of unrepaired divots and pitch marks and bad line calls, and also in easy reach of the Cape winelands whose products he enjoys in a moderate fashion befitting his age. His working life has centred on writing, first as a journalist then as a corporate communications consultant.

Review by: Shirley Gueller on Oct. 30, 2012 : star star star star star
Shirley de Kock Gueller who reviews print books for the Cape Times (South Africa) and Atlantic Books Today (Canada), read FIX - The titanium people and the Bellini illumination. This is her take:

IN THE MOMENT, CAPTIVATING AND EASY TO READ
Rooted in the soils of Transkei and the winelands of Paarl, Kerkhoff’s e-book is very in the moment, captivating and easy to read, especially in bed on an early winter morning, and on a mobile. It’s South Africa of today with its history of banned people, exiled artists, mining versus tribal interests, politics, corruption and the promise of investigations. Kerkhoff’s background as a journalist and corporate public relations consultant has fine-tuned his sense for detail and his powers of observation as he relates, in short accessible chapters, the games people play for dominance and rape of the country amidst power outages at online auctions, support for a city orchestra and walks on Table Mountain. May your conclusion play out, Kerkhoff!
