    The author of The Bundy Murders shares unprecedented access to official case files in the investigations to apprehend the infamous serial killer.   In the 1970s, as Ted Bundy spread terror across the United States, law enforcement agencies from the Pacific Northwest to the Rocky Mountains to Florida attempted to put an end to his depraved killing spree. In The Bundy Secrets, true crime author and Bundy expert Kevin M. Sullivan provides a revealing chronicle of these police investigations through the original case files, shown to the reader just as they appeared to detectives themselves.   The third volume in Sullivan’s Bundy Trilogy, this book presents a “just the facts” chronology of formerly classified documents detailing the nationwide manhunt for America’s most infamous serial killer. It also includes contemporary interviews gathered by Sullivan from dozens of sources along Bundy’s trail of terror. The Bundy Secrets is an essential collection of primary source documents for true crime students of Ted Bundy.

    The Marquise de Ganges -...

    To paraphrase the note from the translator, The Celebrated Crimes of Alexandre Dumas père was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language—has minced no words—to describe violent scenes of violent times.In this, the eighteenth of the series, Dumas explores the history of a famous French aristocratic family: that of Marie de Rossan, also known as Diane de Joannis de Roussan and as Anne-Elisabeth De Rossan, but in any case the Marquise de Ganges and La Belle Belle Provençale: often described as the most beautiful woman of her time. It was, indeed, her beauty that undid her. After the death of her first husband, she heard of the Marquis de Gange; she heard of him as the handsomest man in France, and she could not resist the urge to meet him. They met, they married, and the rest is history--bloody, violent and terrible history, completely opposite to the sweet romance with which it began. Dumas tells her story in full, and also takes us through the tales of her husband, her children, and the men who murdered her--and that group may include her husband as well.Dumas may have collaborated on this, as he frequently did in his works, with other writers. Nevertheless, it is clearly Dumas who has the final say on this work, as with all the other works in this series.Enjoy!

Under pressure to solve the case, and lacking physical evidence to identify any suspects, authorities set their sights on a local trio of misfit teenagers, Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, later dubbed the West Memphis Three.   Leveritt’s account of the case, which resulted in one death sentence and two life sentences, is by turns a shocking, appalling, and heartbreaking work of true crime writing. Likening the Three’s plight to the Salem Witch Trials, she calls America’s justice system into question, arguing that these three young men were condemned simply for being different.   The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

    Canada is seen as a peaceful place, but this wake-up call shows us that there have been more than 60 serial killers in our history.  
     
     
     Limited time offer.   
    There are more than 60 serial murderers in Canadian history. For too long awareness of serial murder in Canada has been confined toWest Coastbutcher Clifford Olson and the "Schoolgirl Murderers" Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, along with the horrific acts of pig farmer Robert Pickton. Unlike our American neighbours, Canada has been viewed as a nation untouched by the shadow of multiple murder. Then came Colonel Russell Williams and his bizarre homicides and serial home invasions, which were sensational news worldwide on the Internet and television and in scores of newspapers and magazines.  
    The reason for Canada’s serial killer blackout is clear: until now such information has never been compiled and presented in a single concise work. ColdNorth Killers is a wake-up call. This detailed and haunting account of Canada’s worst monsters analyzes their crimes, childhoods, and inevitable downfalls. It is an indispensablecompendium for any true crime lover, criminologist, or law-enforcement officer.

    Craig Glazer was an ordinary college student when he planned and successfully executed his first fake sting to get back at some drug dealers who had robbed him. The rush he got from the experience led him and a crew of 11 accomplices to mastermind a two-year, 33-sting spree that stretched coast to coast, posing as everything from local police to IRS agents and hotel managers. Glazer and Donald Woodbeck, his partner in crime, sniffed out some of the most sought-after drug lords in the country for the FBI and DEA like bloodhounds. For a while, the plan worked—until Craig's world came crashing down.
