Serial Killer Peter Sutcliffe by Bruce Candelo 3.4 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

The Yorkshire Ripper was- is- perhaps the most famous British serial killer, aside from his Victorian namesake. His crimes gripped the nation over a five year period, starting in 1975. But behind the media image created for him was a man called Peter Sutcliffe, a normal man from the accounts of all who knew him. He first worked as a gravedigger, before moving on to regular jobs as a salesman, a factory worker, and finally an HGV driver. Nothing out of the ordinary. Sutcliffe's story is one of inept policing, media frenzy and unrelenting brutality- and insanity. When initially apprehended, Sutcliffe claimed that he had been ordered to murder prostitutes by no less an authority than God himself. Because of his string of crimes, Sutcliffe has been imprisoned for almost the entirety of his adult life. He has no chance of ever being released.

As Jesus Passed By: White Tree Publishing Edition by Gipsy Smith (White Tree Publishing) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Rodney "Gipsy" Smith was born in a gipsy tent in Epping Forest, England. He was the son of gipsies, Cornelius Smith and his wife Mary. Growing up, he had to help support the family by making and selling items like clothes pegs around the area. He only had a few weeks at school one winter, and was unable to read or write. One day his father Cornelius came home to say that he had been converted, and was now a Christian. Cornelius helped bring his son to the Lord, and from that moment, Rodney wanted to share the way of salvation with others. Now followed a difficult time, because he knew that in order to preach to others, he had to be able to read the Bible, both for himself and aloud to others. He writes, "I began to practise preaching. One Sunday I entered a turnip field and preached most eloquently to the turnips. I had a very large and most attentive congregation. Not one of them made an attempt to move away." When he started preaching to people, and came across a long word in the Bible he was unable to read, he says he stopped at the long word and spoke on what had gone before, and started reading again at the word after the long one! Gipsy Smith quickly learnt to read fluently and was soon into fulltime evangelism, where he soon became known as Gipsy Smith, a name he accepted gladly. He joined the Salvation Army for a time, until being told to resign. Instead of this being a setback, he now took up a much wider sphere of work in England, before travelling to America and Australia where he became a much-loved preacher. In spite of meeting two American presidents at the White House, and other important figures in society, Gipsy Smith never forgot his roots. He never pretended to be anything other than a Gipsy boy, and was always pleased to come across other Gipsy families in his travels.

Annals of our Forebearers by David C Joyce 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 57 minutes ago

On November 6, 1777, Alexander Joyce, a Scots-Irish pioneer, writes to his children as he nears his death. By now, he is living in Guilford County, North Carolina, and realizes that his family knows little about his childhood in Ireland. From his experience of immigrating to colonial Virginia because of political persecution, religious persecution, and famine to his achievements in the New World, he has much to tell. And through the accounts of these semi-fictional letters, one gains insight into life in eighteenth-century Virginia, North Carolina, and County Down, Ireland. Largely based on historical and genealogical documentation, this story represents a greater truth. From the factual relationships between the real people portrayed in the book to the events that helped shape their lives, all aspects of colonial life are examined.

Discovering a Genius: Rudolf Steiner at 150 by Frederick Amrine (Keryx) 4.7 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

An introduction to the life and work of Rudolf Steiner, a largely undiscovered genius whose work deserves to be far better known. No acquaintance is presupposed, but experienced anthroposophists also stand to gain by reading it. In a world in which so many ideologies - Marxism, nationalism, materialism, religious fundamentalism, the invisible hand of the market - have become tired if not outright destructive, many hunger for a radically new kind of thinking, for ideas arising out of new insights, ideas that have real transformative power. They yearn for ideas that can become real, living ideals. Steiner gave them to us in abundance, launching and inspiring a host of initiatives throughout the world. Look for translations into Norwegian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French, with Japanese and Italian forthcoming.

Montgomery: Hero or Villain? by Gordon Corrigan (Sharpe Books) 3.7 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

In the annals of British history the name Montgomery is legend. During the Second World War Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery led the British Eighth Army against Rommel's elite Panzers from August 1942 in the Western Desert until the final Allied victory against German invaders in Tunisia in May 1943. This command included the Second Battle of El Alamein, a turning point in the Western Desert Campaign. He subsequently commanded the British Eighth Army during the Allied invasion of Sicily and the Allied invasion of Italy to complete that country's escape from Mussolini's fascism. He was also in command of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord in 1944 which began the liberation of Europe from the grip of the monstrous German war machine. The fourth child of nine to a church minister father and ferociously strict mother, 'Monty' along with Winston Churchill, is synonymous with the defeat of Adolf Hitler. He rose to become 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, KG, GCB, DSO, PC, DL. Like Churchill, he became a superhero. But hindsight is a wonderful thing. And Gordon Corrigan's bold Montgomery: hero or villain? now asks the unthinkable: does that reputation stand the test of time? Montgomery: the man or the myth, hero or villain. Now you can choose... Praise for Gordon Corrigan... '... [The Second World War: A Military History] will serve as an invaluable source of reference, but more to the point this book should be savoured for its trenchant opinions and its forceful and uncluttered prose.' - The Daily Express 'Political, fluent, well-researched and extremely argumentative' - Andrew Roberts. Gordon Corrigan is an ex-soldier and historical writer and broadcaster. He was educated at the Royal School, Armagh, and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He served in the British Army's Royal Gurkha Rifles, mainly in the Far East, and reached the rank of major. On retirement from the army, Gordon became a freelance writer on military history. ...

Under the appearance of a caring doctor, Michael Swango planned and killed... Wherever he went, death followed... Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited The story of Michael Swango is perhaps not quite as well-known as that of other prolific killers such as Ted Bundy and Richard Ramirez, but this diabolical doctor may have killed more people than these two murderers combined. And, what makes the story of Michael Swango even more sinister is that he committed his crimes under the guise of medicine. He put up a facade that he was healing the sick when in reality he was purposefully making his patients sick. He was, in fact, killing them. Swango would approach his victims with a calm, perfectly crafted bedside manner before injecting them with his lethal dose of murder. Swango broke the sacred Hippocratic Oath that all physicians take, proclaiming that they will do no harm. What made this man break such a sacred trust in such a deplorable manner? Just what made this certified medical professional feel that he had a license to kill?

A Book of Remarkable Criminals by H. B. Irving (Open Road Media) 3.8 Stars (220 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This classic study profiles serial killers, gentleman murderers, and every stripe of madman in between Benjamin Pitezel should never have trusted H. H. Holmes. In 1894, the two men conspired to fake Pitezel's death for the sake of a $10,000 insurance settlement. But Holmes decided murder would be simpler. He killed his partner, kidnapped three of his children, and tried to claim the insurance money as his own. The scheme unraveled and Holmes killed the children as well. When he was caught, the police had no idea they had captured one of the vilest murderers in American history. The Pitezel murders were only the tip of a very bloody iceberg. The chilling case of H. H. Holmes -- famously recounted in Erik Larson's award-winning bestseller, The Devil in the White City -- is but one of the true crime tales contained in this remarkable work. Author H. B. Irving understood the public's lurid fascination with murder, and in this seminal study he shows readers the many faces of evil.

The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D.: The Complete Unabridged Edition in 6 Volumes): Including the Journal & Diary by James Boswell (e-artnow) 2.5 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (The Complete Unabridged Edition in 6 Volumes)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (1791) is a biography of Dr. Samuel Johnson written by James Boswell. It is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell's personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson's life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson's life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson's quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell's biography as an important source of information. The work was popular among early audiences and with modern critics, but some of the modern critics believe that the work cannot be considered a proper biography. James Boswell, 9th Laird of Auchinleck (29 October 1740 - 19 May 1795) was a lawyer, diarist, and author born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is best known for the biography he wrote of one of his contemporaries, the English literary figure Samuel Johnson, which the modern Johnsonian critic Harold Bloom has claimed is the greatest biography written in the English language.

What does evil look like? Serial Killer Richard Ramirez certainly comes to mind... Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! There are some people who travel so far beyond the pale of conventional morality that their actions almost seem like desperate works of fiction. Richard Ramirez is one such person, a Satan-worshipping drug addict who carried out one of America's most brutal and horrific crime sprees. He burgled, raped, and killed his way across California and left the authorities with nothing to chase. Named the Night Stalker by the press, he seemed like a ghost. Striking fear into the heart of every single person in the area, no one seemed safe from the actions of Richard Ramirez. In this book, we will examine his most horrific crimes while attempting to explain exactly what could drive a man so far from the moral centre of society. A difficult upbringing, brain trauma, and a troubled domestic situation certainly added to his problems, but many of Ramirez's most damning actions were created entirely in his own twisted mind. This book will attempt to tell the story of the man who gouged eyes, scratched pentagrams, and butchered families. If there is any explanation for the crimes committed by the Night Stalker, then it likely lies between his past and his actions. In examining both, we will know the real person behind the murders. Such is the nature of these ruthless, and cruel murders, the scenes depicted within will not be for the faint-hearted. There are few killers in American history who can come close to matching the vicious levels of violence inflicted by Ramirez during his wave of attacks. While names such as Dahmer and Gacy are remembered by the American public, the murders of the Night Stalker have long been forgotten. So read on and find out the truth behind one of America's most shocking and horrifying serial killers.

Home to many of the world's best-loved cultural icons and achievements, the nation has a darker side. With one of the highest murder rates per capita in the so-called developed world, the country has played home to some of the most violent deaths in recorded memory. Out of this spectrum of death emerges a very specific subset of criminals. The serial killers. More than any other country, America is home to a high number of mass murderers who have moved beyond the pale of regular morality. In this book, we will examine the life and crimes of Robert Lee Yates.

What prompted a veteran and family man to start murdering women later in his life? In the record books, Yates is linked with the murders of sixteen victims. The majority of these victims were female sex workers, people who operated on the fringes of society, part of an ignored and disenfranchised underworld that Yates plunged into. For two years, in the Washington area, one man was able to carry out a campaign of vicious murders, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. This is the story of Robert Lee Yates, the family he left behind, and the women he killed. It should be noted at this juncture that several names might have been changed to preserve the privacy of their real counterparts. Every action in the story, however, is true.

Patrolling the Heart of the West: True Tales of a Nevada State Trooper by Steve Raabe (Latah Books) 4.9 Stars (96 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

"Though many of his true tales take tragic and terrifying turns, Raabe's grace, compassion and good cheer, along with a wicked sense of humor, shine through... " --Las Vegas Review-Journal "Told with great humor and compassion, Raabe's tales show us the heart behind the badge." --Michael Gurian, NY Times bestselling author of The Wonder of Boys For decades, Trooper Steve Raabe patrolled some of the most desolate and dangerous highways in America. Alone in the remote Nevada desert, miles from any backup, Raabe was forced to contend with murderers, thieves, perverts, dope peddlers, and the occasional runaway train. While often tragic and terrifying, Raabe's true tales also abound with his signature wit and playful good cheer. Policing can be a deadly serious business, but for Raabe it also entailed buying a prisoner an ice cream cone on a hot summer day, or laughing along with some good old boys before booking them into jail, as you'll discover in Patrolling the Heart of the West. In our contentious and politicized era, when police officers are too often portrayed as either infallible superheroes or oppressive henchmen, Raabe's charming collection reminds us that cops are mostly just ordinary men and women who've chosen an extraordinary career. More praise for Patrolling the Heart of the West: "Patrolling the Heart of the West can easily be digested in short spurts, but it's possible that when you start reading this book that it will be impossible to put down." --Sparks Tribune "Raabe's stories reflect "the good, the bad and the ugly" aspects of patrolling our highways. Patrolling the Heart of the West will bring a new appreciation for the unique role and responsibilities of state troopers, especially those who work in rural or remote areas." --G Paul Corbin, criminal justice professor and former chief of the Nevada Highway Patrol "Perhaps the most endearing police memoir yet written. As a son and brother of cops, I admire the humanity Raabe brings to each of ...

The Barton Murder: The Mysterious and True Murder Story on Hamilton Mountain. Did Somebody Get Away With Murder? by Jack Smith 3.5 Stars (32 Reviews)    Price verified 57 minutes ago

A Murder Like No Others Late on the afternoon of October 9, 1905, three boys in Hamilton, Ontario hiked up to the city's Mountain region, intending to search the farmlands and wooded areas for chestnuts. At Limestone Ridge, they ventured into a cluster of hickory trees and stumbled upon the body of a woman, partially concealed by branches and leaves. Too frightened to check for signs of life, the boys ran and summoned help. When local residents and the police arrived, it was obvious to all that the woman had been murdered.

Under The Ground (Based On True Crime Book 2) by Garry Rodgers (DyingWords Digital & Print Media Canada) 4.7 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 57 minutes ago

The Truth Lies Buried. Under The Ground is a psychological suspense thriller based on the true crime story of Kristen Madsen -- a troubled eighteen-year-old victim last seen with her ex-boyfriend, Esa Raasanen in a small city on Vancouver Island at Canada's southwest coast. Conventional police procedural techniques fail to find the buried truth in the mystery of Kristen's disappearance, so a highly-complex criminal undercover operation sets upon Esa. It slowly sucks him into a fictional -- yet completely believable -- world of organized crime run by a shadow figure known only as "The Boss." The truth is uncovered through a sophisticated psychological manipulation of Esa, carefully planned and scripted by an undercover team who developed the amazing "Mister Big Sting". Under The Ground sweeps you through the emotional turmoil in an abusive relationship to the high-rolling lives of convincing "criminals" who preyed upon Esa's lust, greed, ignorance, and brutally violent, psychopathic personality. With skillful handling and focused purpose, "Jake", the lead undercover operator, builds a trap for Esa Raasanen which can only be escaped by confessing to "The Boss" about what truthfully happened in Kristen Marsden's murder. Where she lay and what he'd done shocked the entire investigative team of detectives and undercover operatives. Here is what readers say about this suspenseful psychological thriller: "She's "under the ground," prophetic words of a streetwise homicide cop by Garry Rodgers is a not-to-be missed thriller. Based on a true story, involving real-life undercover tactics and a time-consuming, demanding undercover investigation this book is captivating, addicting, and frightening." "Under the Ground reveals the lengths to which the detectives and police force went to catch a vicious murderer. Their psychological manipulation of the murderer was ingenious - and will be of great interest to True Crime buffs, like myself. I highly recommend Under the Ground ...

Kelly Cochran. Killer.: A collection of True Crime by Stormy Barr 3.2 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 22 hours ago

An anthology of True Crime with the most violent criminals... Kelly Marie Cochran is undoubtedly a name that will be marked by history. On May 16, 2018, she was sentenced to 65 years in prison for the murder of her husband, Jason Thad Cochran, age 27, just one year after her life sentence for the murder of Christopher Karl Regan. Now the center of the Investigation Discovery documentary "Dead North," Kelly Cochran, age 34, has been accused of crimes beyond those sustaining her two sentences, including cannibalism and several other murders. According to Kelly's brother, Colton Gaboyan, Kelly might be responsible for the death of nine other victims across the states of Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee, and Minnesota. With the potential body count of eleven, Investigation Discovery has pointed out that Kelly may be "one of the most prolific female serial killers... of modern American crime." While Kelly is free to confess to these crimes without fear of incurring further charges, she has yet to respond to the accusations of cannibalism or to provide information on her other victims (though she has repeatedly claimed that there are indeed others). Now with the dismissal of primary investigator and Iron River Police Chief, Laura Frizzo, who had continued investigations into the possibility of Kelly's additional casualties, the case has run cold.

Just Like You? by Matthew Alan 4.6 Stars (14 Reviews)    Price verified 22 hours ago

This book isn't perfect - very few things in this world are. It's about being honest, about being flawed, and about surviving the challenging times in our lives. And it isn't just a coming out memoir, it's a story about acceptance. A series of recollections about struggling to gain internal perspective, while remembering that everyone is going through some battle within their own lives. And that by sharing those times, we can actually close the distance between us. It is a true story, my story, as best as I can express to you. Thanks for looking through my eyes, even for a short period of time.
