The kiss and beyond

The kiss and beyond

R150.00eBook: R150.00

Why? To satisfy an inherent craving, nature has implanted in each of us. Sexual satisfaction is nature’s way of rewarding us for ensuring the species' survival, above all, through evolutionary adaptation. And that is what life is all about. As a voyeur, I observe my characters dispassionately. They do their own thing as literary characters tend to. They lust and love, they fret their hour upon life’s stage, they age, they die, then are heard no more. The rest is just one overarching trivial pursuit. Come to think of it, maybe the lust of lust is, in the greater scheme of things, just that, too. What, I ask, in all of this, if anything, is life's ultimate purpose? No, I am not a cynic. We are what we are, we strive for perfection – at least, some of us do – we live, we die. We cannot re-engineer humanity, try as we might.

This is what The Kiss and Beyond investigates.

Soos Nemesis, die Griekse godin van vergelding, help sy elkeen van hierdie vroue om op te staan en terug te veg, te neem wat hulle toekom. En die mans kry wat húlle toekom. Die verhaal ontwikkel rondom elke vrou se vergelding vir wat haar aangedoen is. Soms vereis goeie uitkomste selfs vennootskappe met slegte mense.

Chris het ‘n geheim. Sy is verantwoordelik vir die dood van haar eks, Thomas. Sy móét Andreas, haar vennoot en die man wat haar help heel het, vertel, maar vrees dat sy hom sal verloor.

Wie is die geheimsinnige James Sinclair en Omar Lebus? Is een van hulle ‘n voortvlugtige pedofiel? En waar pas die Kaapse mafiabaas Denys Alekseev en sy wulpse Katya in die prentjie? Wie is die Rooikop en wie is pastore Áncora de Salvació en Cornelio? Die leser moet kophou om die ineengevlegte intriges en ontknopings te volg.

Die ondertoon is by tye ernstig, verlig deur ligter oomblikke en onverwagte wendings.

Die poppe dans behoorlik in Nemesis!
