 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Book Lounge invite you to launch of The Enforcers: Inside Cape Town’s Deadly Nightclub Battles by Caryn Dolley.

Dolley will be in discussion with Lester Kiewit.

About the book

Here is the Cape Town underworld laid bare, explored through the characters who control the ‘protection’ industry – the bouncers and security at nightclubs and strip clubs.

In this suspenseful page-turner of an investigation, Caryn Dolley writes about the overlapping of the state with the underworld, the underworld with the ‘upperworld’, and how the associated violence is not confined to specific areas of Cape Town, but is happening inside hospitals, airports, clubs and restaurants and putting residents at risk.

A book that lays bare the myth that violence and gangsterism in Cape Town is confined to the ganglands of the Cape Flats – wherever you find yourself, you’re only a hair’s breadth away from the enforcers.
