Transcendence by Nick van der Leek and Lisa Wilson - what's it about?

Has Oscar Transcended justice? This is the question at the heart of this narrative.

The problem is stated in the initial chapters courtesy of retired high court Judge Chris Greenland. A two hour interview with the Judge is analysed here and used as a jumping off point.

On September 12 Greenland tweeted: "I join the whole world in lamenting this travesty of justice. The Court failed Reeva." We lament because it is yet another failure of the courts.

But what about Reeva? And if justice is not to be found when the world is watching - as it has with the biggest story in modern media history - where do we find it? How do we find transcendence not in the afterlife, but now, and not just for Reeva, how do we achieve Transcendence - on a daily basis - ourselves?

As in the previous narratives, South African photojournalist Nick van der Leek takes the reader on a deeply personal journey - a physical, mental and spiritual journey - in search of justice, in search of answers and in search of Transcendence.

Juror13, who for the first time writes under her real name - Lisa Wilson - provides painstaking analysis, insights and personal perspectives from California.

Together van der Leek and Wilson weave an intricate story which may catch the reader off guard for its sheer power and ability to transport. This is the 6th book in the Series.
