Summary

Three true-crime books in one volume, featuring cases ranging from Texas to Georgia to Alaska, from New York Times–bestselling and award-winning authors.   Included in this three-in-one volume are:  Bogeyman by New York Times–bestselling author Steve Jackson For years he stalked elementary schools and playgrounds looking for young girls from low-income neighborhoods to abduct, rape and murder. They were “throwaway kids” to him, hardly missed, soon forgotten, except by those who loved them. He was every parent’s worst nightmare—and it took a decades-long fight by Texas lawmen to bring him to justice.   “A fascinating, well-paced read about the lows and highs of cold case investigations.” —Katherine Ramsland, in Psychology Today  Murder In The Familyby Edgar Award–winning author Burl Barer A New York Times Bestseller: In 1987, Anchorage police arrived at a horrific scene of carnage. In a downtown apartment, they found Nancy Newman’s brutally beaten corpse and the bodies of her two young daughters. After an intense investigation, they identified the principal suspect: Kirby Anthoney—a troubled drifter who’d turned to his uncle, Nancy’s husband, for help and a place to stay. Little did he know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath . . .   “Barer writes true crime at its best.” —Jack Olsen  Targetedby New York Times–bestselling author M. William Phelps When her missing boyfriend is found dead, his body encased in cement inside a watering trough and dumped in a cattle field, a Georgia sheriff’s deputy is arrested and charged with his murder. But as an investigative journalist digs in, the truth leads to questions about her guilt . . .   “Phelps is one of America’s finest true-crime writers.” —Vincent Bugliosi

    “A compelling narrative that moves crisply through the murder, the lynching, and the cover-up by silence that local residents thereafter affected.”—The Journal of American History   On a warm August night in 1911, Zachariah Walker was lynched—burned alive—by an angry mob on the outskirts of Coatesville, a prosperous Pennsylvania steel town. At the time of his very public murder, Walker, an African American millworker, was under arrest for the shooting and killing of a respected local police officer. Investigated by the NAACP, the horrific incident garnered national and international attention. Despite this scrutiny, a conspiracy of silence shrouded the events, and the accused men and boys were found not guilty at trial. More than 100 years after the lynching, authors Dennis B. Downey and Raymond M. Hyser bring new insight to events that rocked a community.

    Provocative political commentator Arianna Huffington yanks back the curtain on the unholy alliance of CEOs, politicians, lobbyists, and Wall Street bankers who have shown a brutal disregard for those in the office cubicles and on the factory floors. As she puts it: “The economic game is not supposed to be rigged like some shady ring toss on a carnival midway.” Yet it has been, allowing corporate crooks to bilk the public out of trillions of dollars, magically making our pensions and 401(k)s disappear and walking away with astronomical payouts and lavish perks-for-life. Making the case that our public watchdogs have become little more than obedient lapdogs, Arianna Huffington turns the spotlight on the tough reforms we must demand from Washington that go beyond the Corporate Responsibility Act.

    New York Times Bestseller: This groundbreaking tell-all by a mob hit man is “chilling and compelling—a must-read” (Former FBI agent Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco). The Bronx-born son of a Jewish bootlegger, “Joey the Hit Man” was introduced to crime when he was just eleven years old. For the next thirty years he was a numbers king, scalper, loan shark, enforcer, and drug smuggler. He hijacked trucks, fenced stolen goods, and trafficked in pornography. But Joey really made his name as a Mafia assassin, racking up thirty-eight cold-blooded hits—thirty-five for cash, three for revenge.   In Killer, Joey tells the true story of life in organized crime. He exposes the reality of gang wars, discusses how he raised a family while living on the wrong side of the law, and documents the day-to-day business of crime—from making and breaking alliances to staying one step ahead of the cops. He reveals how he faced a grand jury seven times with no convictions (“never lie to your lawyer”) and kept a seven-figure fortune out of reach of the IRS. He lays out in graphic detail the difference between getting paid to kill and doing it for personal reasons. “People think because they saw [The Godfather] they know everything there is to know about organized crime,” Joey contends. In this no-holds-barred account, he reveals the brutal truth behind the Hollywood fantasy.   Forty-five years after this true crime classic shocked readers all over the world and set the standard for bestselling Mafia biographies including Joseph Bonnano’s A Man of Honor and Philip Carlo’s Ice Man, the new edition of Killer includes an afterword by coauthor David Fisher that unmasks Joey’s real identity—and the circumstances behind his death that add another layer of mystery to his complicated, colorful, and fascinating life.
