    From 1910 to 1919, New Orleans suffered at the hands of its very own Jack the Ripper–style killer, while two innocent men nearly paid for one of his crimes with their lives. The story has been the subject of websites, short stories, collections of true crime, novels, a graphic novel, and the FX television series American Horror Story. But the real story of the Axeman of New Orleans has never been written—until now.The Axeman repeatedly broke into the homes of Italian grocers in the dead of night, leaving his victims in a pool of blood. Iorlando Jordano, an innocent Italian grocer, and his teenage son Frank were wrongly accused of one of those murders; corrupt officials convicted them with coerced testimony. Miriam C. Davis here expertly tells the story of the search for the Axeman and of the eventual exoneration of the innocent Jordanos. She proves that the person mostly widely suspected of being the Axeman was not the killer. She also shows what few have suspected—that the Axeman continued killing after leaving New Orleans in 1919.

    A collection of Chicago Tribune articles detailing the case and trial of the infamous police officer convicted of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio. 
     
    In 2004, Kathleen Savio, the third wife of Bolingbrook, Illinois, police officer Drew Peterson, was discovered dead in a bathtub from an apparent drowning. Her death was deemed accidental—at first. In 2007, following the disappearance of Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy, officials reopened the Savio case with Drew as the primary suspect. 
     
    Drew Peterson: The Tribune Files is a true-crime ebook comprising actual Chicago Tribune articles. By compiling years of original reporting in chronological order, this book preserves the shock of each sordid twist in real time as the story grew from a local curiosity into a national phenomenon (complete with a made-for-TV Lifetime movie starring Rob Lowe). 
     
    This book captures every detail of the murders and the surrounding media circus, from Peterson’s bizarre reality TV stint as a celebrity criminal, to the chilling courtroom testimony of Peterson’s brother as he unwittingly assisted with the disposal of a human body. Special attention is paid to the trial itself, which broke legal ground when hearsay testimony from Peterson’s fourth wife, recorded before her disappearance, was allowed as evidence. The Chicago Tribune’s award-winning staff possesses the unique perspective of having covered this case from beginning to end, and the most fascinating pieces have finally been curated into a single collection of the gruesome facts.

    Oscar klop aan die deur en Reeva kom maak vir hom oop. Die man wat oor die drumpel trap, wat vir die laaste keer by hierdie huis instap, is Oscar Pistorius, skatryk, alomgeliefde wêreldberoemde Olimpiese held. Die man wat oor minder as 24 uur by dieselfde deur sal uit steier, sal 'n ánder Oscar wees. Berug, bebloed, bedroef, 'n flentersgebreekte spieël van homself."Dis die verhoor van die jaar, die storie van die dekade. Dis 'n liefdesverhaal wat 'n hofdrama geword het, 'n sprokie wat in bloed geëindig het.Die Oscar Pistorius-saak is al van hoek tot kant bestudeer en ontleed, in berigte en debatte bespreek. Maar nog nooit is dit van die begin tot die end as 'n spanningsverhaal vertel nie. En dít is wat Marida Fitzpatrick in Die Staat vs. Oscar doen. Sy weef die skrikwekkende gebeure van daardie nag en die mees dramatiese dele van die verhoor op só 'n manier ineen dat die boek soos 'n misdaadriller lees. Tussendeur dié boeiende vertelling is uittreksels uit roerende onderhoude met van die betrokkenes se naastes. Die boek bevat ook 'n interessante ontrafeling van die tegniese aspekte van die verhoor: Wat het die ballistiek, die getuienis oor die gille en Oscar se twee verwere uiteindelik vir hom beteken? Dit word alles geïllustreer met foto's wat op die toneel geneem is en grafiese voorstellings. Die Staat vs. Oscar is 'n fassinerende storie wat nie net al die legkaartstukke van die Oscar-raaisel in plek laat val nie, maar deurentyd aangryp en meesleur.
