Hardback. The first full account of South Africa's biggest ever kidnaping, and one of the most bizarre crimes ever committed. Kenny Levy, one of 3 brothers sentenced for the sensational 1966 Glazer kidnapping, for the first time tells his own story. Former Detectiuve-Sergeant Jannie Nel also tells the inside story of how brilliant detective work solved the case. Billionaire Bernard Glazer's wife and baby were kidnapped. At the time it was the biggest kidnapping ever carried out in South Africa: the ransom demand was four times as high as in the infamous but celebrated Lindbergh kidnap in the USA, and they were paid every cent of it. On the official side to pit their brains against the gang of conspirators were the then Minister of Justice, Mr John Vorster, the former security chief General Hendrik van den Bergh - and former Commissioner of Police General Mike Geldenhuys. Not just the story of how the police solved the crime - but also Kenny Levy telling the inside story. Illus. with formerly unpublished police pictures. 211pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in Vg+ dw.
