Share Article

Find out the top sellers for May and June's predictions from South Africa's biggest online retailer.

South Africans battened down the hatches this May in anticipation of an icy Winter. The unseasonal snowfalls throughout the country it seems, sent connected South Africans deeper underground into the catacombs of Johannesburg’s seedy underbelly with author Mandy Wiener as she investigates the chilling events leading up to mining magnate, Brett Kebble’s murder.

Dominating both its book and eBook sales for May, anticipates sales of Killing Kebble to continue into June, together with the Jeremy and Jacqui Mansfield’s Zhoosh! Faking It, and Jodi Picoult’s Sing You Home. On the fiction front, they will be joined by something a little more fiery with the release of number one New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts’ novel, Chasing Fire that delves into the lives of elite firefighters.
