Media Justice (A Marc Kadella Legal Mystery Book 3) by Dennis Carstens 4.4 Stars (415 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Q: HOW DOES A TELEVISION PRODUCER DESCRIBE THE KIDNAP AND MURDER OF A 2-YEAR-OLD CHILD? A:"I THINK WE HAVE A HIT ON OUR HANDS!" In the third The third Marc Kadella legal mystery, an adorable -- and photogenic -- two-year-old girl is kidnapped, and, when her remains are found, her twenty-two-year-old widowed mother Brittany is charged with her murder. But before she can even be charged she's been tried and convicted by the media, at the center of which is Melinda Pace, a cynical, mostly-functioning alcoholic Minneapolis television personality with a "legal news" show called The Court Reporter. Not even in the alternative universe of television news could she be described as a reporter, since she makes no attempt at or pretense of presenting the truth, or even the facts. She does do a great job of producing through-the-roof ratings and whipping the public into a frenzy -- with tragic consequences. Marc is brought into the case early on, before it's clear it will erupt into a media circus that brings out every goofball, crackpot, and member of the aluminum foil helmet club, along with a publicity-hungry state attorney general. The prosecution feeds the media monster by painting Brittany as a neglectful mother who got rid of her child because motherhood interfered with her partying. Marc throws himself heart and soul into saving Brittany from the maw of media justice, and all his associates rally to support him in any way they can. Gorgeous P.I. Maddy Rivers, who is on the case 24/7, reveals a different side as she becomes a sort of big sister to Brittany, providing the TLC that might have kept Brittany out of this mess if she'd gotten it from her controlling mother. Marc's lady love Judge Margaret Tennant is, as always, sensitive to the needs of an attorney in the throes of a huge case and, as always, eager to meet those needs. This one's sure to please fans of the most beloved lawyer sleuth of all time, Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason, who brought the ...

By Person or Persons... UNKNOWN Chilling stories of unsolved murders lost in time but never Forgotten What if the criminal or criminals are never punished? Or even conclusively identified? When this happens, there is a vacuum that continually demands to be filled, even decades after the crime was committed. This is why unsolved crimes - in this instance, murders - are rarely forgotten entirely. Finding new solutions is something that fascinates us. What did really happened? Who did it? We need answers. This book examines three cases of unsolved murders that continue to fascinate and horrify us: ?The Murder of Margaret Blake: On April 23, 1816, Margaret Blake was found in her decrepit cellar apartment, dead from a stab wound. Three people - her husband and two boarders - were present when it happened, but none of them were declared guilty. Modern forensic investigative techniques have been applied to this 200-year-old murder and have resulted in what may be the final solution. ?The Mad Axeman of New Orleans: From 1918-1919, a series of mysterious and gruesome axe murders terrified the Crescent City. The majority of the victims were Italians, but citizens of all backgrounds worried that their skulls would be caved in while they slept. The killer or killers were never caught, but recent research suggests a seminal form of organized crime directed the assaults. ?The Grimes Murders of 1956: A few days before New Year's Eve, 1957, 15-year-old Barbara Grimes and her 13-year-old sister Patricia left their Chicago home to see their idol, Elvis Presley's newest film.
