Summary

A grizzly arson case leads an Indianapolis prosecutor to an infant’s coldblooded killer in this chilling true crime by the author of Inconvenience Gone.   On the morning of March 6, 1993, an intense fire broke out in a tiny nursery. Sixteen minutes later, firefighters had extinguished the blaze. The room was burned so severely, that virtually nothing was recognizable . . . but they were told to look for a baby. What they discovered was almost too gruesome for words. Not only the baby’s charred remains, but an unsettling fact: the child’s parents were home at the time the fire broke out.   The arson squad declared the fire suspicious and investigators determined it was arson. But if it truly was arson, what was the motive? Along with the tenacious and determined Detective Leslie Van Buskirk, Marion County Prosecutor Diane Marger Moore persisted for more than two years to get justice for Baby Matthew Wise. In 16 Minutes, she recounts the incredible story—and the shocking revelations she made.</

    London’s most exclusive neighborhoods sit on sites of the some of the most sinister and scandalous crimes in British history.    Stories of violent death will always hold us in a grim but thrilling grip. The dreadful crimes related in Foul Deeds in Kensington & Chelsea are shocking examples of murder cases that readers will never forget. Crimes of passion, opportunistic killings, political assassinations—the full spectrum of extreme criminality is recounted here.   John J. Eddleston has selected a series of notorious episodes that give a fascinating insight into criminal acts and the criminal mind. The human dramas he depicts are often played out in the most commonplace of circumstances, but others are so odd as to be stranger than fiction.   Cases involving the killing of wives, lovers, and children are among those he describes, but he also reconstructs in forensic detail several more unusual crimes—two men shot dead at a lecture, the field marshal who was assassinated on his doorstep, the acid bath killings, and the murders of two ill-fated countesses.   These lethal episodes give a fascinating insight into the dark side of the history of Kensington and Chelsea.

    First published in 1918, ‘The Elements of Style’ is an American English writing style guide, which have since become an essential tool for writers and educators in its numerous editions down the years. The rules of ‘The Elements of Style’ are rooted in common sense and tradition. The original comprised “eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, a few matters of form, a list of 49 words and expressions commonly misused, and a list of 57 words often misspelled.” E. B. White greatly enlarged and revised the book for publication by Macmillan in 1959. That was the first edition of the so-called Strunk & White, which Time magazine named in 2011 as one of the 100 best and most influential books written in English since 1923.

    The mentalist, mindbinder, and author of Haunted Providence delves into the 19th-century murder of Sarah Maria Cornell.  “If I should be missing, enquire of the Rev. Mr. Avery of Bristol, he will know where I am.”   This scribbled note belonged to Sarah M. Cornell, written the day her body was found hanged in a rural pasture in Tiverton, Rhode Island. An unmarried young woman of limited means, Sarah was four months pregnant, and a married Methodist minister stood accused as the father. Local authorities grew skeptical of Sarah’s apparent suicide as Reverend Avery’s conduct appeared increasingly suspect, and eventually the extensive evidence of their tortured relationship set off a groundswell of public interest and media attention never before seen in 1830s New England. This tragic crime left the nation clamoring for justice and became one of early America’s most sensational murder trials.
