Angela Makholwa burst into the literary crime scene with the release of her gritty debut novel, Red Ink, set in Johannesburg. The novel was inspired by Angela’s real-life encounters with one of South Africa’s most notorious serial killers, Moses Sithole. This was followed by “The 30th Candle”, a book that revolves around four university friends who navigate their way to their 30th birthdays with humorous and sometimes unexpected results.
The “Black Widow Society” follows the cloak and dagger workings of a secret society of middle-class women who plot to eliminate their errant husbands through devious and underhanded means, giving fresh meaning to the words “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”.
“The Blessed Girl” is a satirical novel told from the perspective of a young woman who engages in transactional relationships with married men in order to access the opulent lifestyle she believes she deserves. Angela’s latest novel is entitled “Critical But, Stable” and was released in November 2020. The book is a murder mystery which follows the long term marriages of four high flying couples.
