Izak du Plessis questions Ted Botha about his juicy book, Daisy de Melker: Hiding among Killers in the City of Gold, which is about the murderess who made headlines around the world in the 1930s. In the week before the verdict, business was brisk on the court steps as people sold their seats in the courtroom. On reckoning day, the prosecutor and Daisy’s lawyer were both absent and it was the junior lawyer, the later famous Isie Maisels, who heard the verdict that sent their client to the gallows for the murder of her son.
