    When Ezra Chipman brought fellow Canadian George Sternaman to board at his Buffalo home, he set in motion a nightmarish chain of events. Within months, Ezra was dead of a mysterious ailment. Then, shortly after marrying Ezra’s widow Olive, George developed similar symptoms.  
    Impoverished by George’s long illness, the family moved to his mother’s farm in Haldimand County, Ontario. There, in August 1896, 24-year-old George Sternaman died. After his funeral, Olive returned to Buffalo to try to pick up the pieces of her life. 
    Meanwhile, a Canadian investigation into George’s death had begun. Medical examinations and evidence uncovered by Ontario’s "great detective," John Wilson Murray, pointed to one conclusion: George Sternaman had died of arsenic poisoning. Olive was arrested and charged with his murder. 
    Sensational legal battles followed, involving the highest courts in both Canada and the United States. When Olive finally went to trial at the Haldimand County Courthouse in Cayuga, her lawyer, Welland politician William Manley German, was up against the most brilliant legal mind of the day: Britton Bath Osler.  
    Drawing on newspaper accounts and legal documents, Cheryl MacDonald has recreated a true-to-life Victorian melodrama. Who Killed George? offers insight into the legal system, social sentiments, and status of women of the 1890s, along with the thrill of a genuine Canadian murder mystery.

    An experimental new Internet-based form of money is created that anyone can generate at home; people build frightening firetrap computers full of video cards, putting out so much heat that one operator is hospitalised with heatstroke and brain damage. 
     
    A young physics student starts a revolutionary new marketplace immune to State coercion; he ends up ordering hits on people because they might threaten his great experiment, and is jailed for life without parole. 
     
    Fully automated contractual systems are proposed to make business and the law work better; the contracts people actually write are unregulated penny stock offerings whose fine print literally states that you are buying nothing of any value. 
     
    The biggest crowdfunding in history attracts $150 million on the promise that it will embody “the steadfast iron will of unstoppable code”; upon release it is immediately hacked, and $50 million is stolen. 
     
    How did we get here? 
     
    David Gerard covers the origins and history of Bitcoin to the present day, the other cryptocurrencies it spawned including Ethereum, the ICO craze and the 2017 crypto bubble, and the attempts to apply blockchains and smart contracts to business. Plus a case study on blockchains in the music industry. 
     
    Bitcoin and blockchains are not a technology story, but a psychology story.

    From the author of No One Can Hurt Him Anymore—a chilling true crime account of a monster who hid in plain sight, where he could kill again and again . . .   In 1992, the small town of Springfield, Ohio, was shocked by the discovery of two adolescent girls who had been brutally raped and murdered. Investigators soon learned that four local miscreants had been accomplices—but DNA tests proved that the true culprit was still on the loose. Inexplicably, the four men continued to mislead police throughout the years-long investigation, periodically supplying false clues and leads. And while they lied, and a cold-blooded killer remained at large, another victim was raped and murdered—and then another.   Not until 1996, when a prostitute managed to survive a terrifying ordeal at the hands of her would-be slayer, were police able to catch the man who’d been stalking Springfield’s women and children. He was William K. Sapp—husband and father of two young boys and a baby girl. And behind his seemingly normal mask lay a murderous rage toward women that he had been violently indulging for years.   Here is the startling true story of a town besieged and the relentless manhunt that tracked Sapp for years until finally bringing him to justice.  Includes 16 pages of shocking photos

    SYNOPSIS
    S  P  E  C  I  F  I  C      I  N  T  E  N  T
    
    	To everyone in the small enclave of Kensington, Long Island, New York, Dr. Feelgood and his wife Sophia seemed every bit the all-American happy family. He was a good looking medical student who went on to become chief of surgery at a prestigious hospital. She was his college sweetheart and the mother of his two children. With the death of Sophia on the evening of June 18th 1977, this picture perfect family became the center of one of the most shocking and sensational murder cases of the decade. At first, the community rallied around the respected surgeon, but slowly a different story began to emerge of a sleazy secret life, of a manipulative lover, and an obsessive adulterer. His good name and credibility sank further with the revelation of the existence of a mistress tucked away in Copenhagen, Denmark with two small children he had fathered. The authorities, particularly an aggressive district attorney with his eyes on the Governors chair began to tighten a noose around his neck readying an indictment for murder. Add to this is a pending malpractice law suit and a slippery slope financial crisis and we have the conditions necessary to create a fugitive from justice.

    On July 7th 2005 London suffered the worst terrorist attack in its history.  Despite one of the largest police investigations ever to take place in Britain,  to date not a single person has been found guilty for the atrocity that killed over 50 people. 
    Using unsealed court documents and declassified intelligence agency files Secrets, Spies and 7/7 takes you on a journey through the labyrinth of disinformation about the bombings.  Drawing on over 7 years of research, Tom Secker shows how  the official version of events, which blamed 4 British Muslim men, is a mess of contradictions, errors and fantasies.  
    This unique investigation also explores the 'War on Terror' context in which the attacks took place and shows how an alternative look at the evidence suggests some very different culprits to those blamed by the official story.

    The dark double life of Ellen Boehm, the mother who murdered her two sons—and nearly killed her daughter Ellen Boehm, a single mom from St. Louis, Missouri, appeared devoted to her children. But in reality, she was unequipped for motherhood, financially strapped, and desperate. Within a year of each other, her sons, ages two and four, died mysteriously, and Boehm’s eight-year-old daughter then suffered a near-fatal mishap when a hair dryer fell into the girl’s bath. While neighbors wondered how Boehm remained so calm through it all, Det. Sgt. Joseph Burgoon of St. Louis Homicide had darker suspicions.   Burgoon soon unraveled a labyrinth of deception, greed, and obsession that revealed a cold-blooded killer whose get-rich-quick scheme came at the cost of her children’s lives. Boehm had taken out insurance policies on her children with six different companies totaling nearly $100,000. Using police reports, case documents, and photos, journalist John Coston recreates the events that led to one mother’s unspeakable acts of filicide—and a cop’s relentless pursuit of the truth.
