Byleveld - Dossier of a Serial Sleuth by Hanlie Retief

Random House Struik, R220

Rating: 4/5

People call him the world’s best detective for his 99 per cent success rate during a career that spanned 40 years before his retirement in 2010.

His fan base includes ordinary people stretching from Soweto to KZN and even Madiba himself, who all praised his commitment to catch the bad guys.

It’s fascinating to get an insight into Byleveld himself and into the heads of his “clients” such as Nasrec serial killer Lazarus Mazingane, rapist Bongani Mfeka and murderer Donovan Moodley, while also satisfying to know that justice was served.
