The Murder of Prime Minister Spencer Perceval: A Portrait of the Assassin
England entered the nineteenth century having lost the American states and was at war with France. The slave trade had been halted and the country was in torment, with industrialisation throwing men and women out of work as poverty haunted their lives. As the merchants of England and America saw their businesses stagnate and profits plummet, everyone blamed the government and its policies. Those in charge were alarmed and businessmen, who were believed to be exploiting the poor, were murdered. Assassination indeed stalked the streets. The man at the centre of the storm was Prime Minister Spencer Perceval. From the higher reaches of society to the beggar looking for bread, many wanted him dead, due to policies brought about by his inflexible religious convictions and his belief that he was appointed by God. In May 1812 he entered the Lobby of the Houses of Parliament when a man stepped forward and fired a pistol at him. The lead ball entered into his heart. Within minutes he was dead. Using freshly-discovered archive material, this book explores the assassin's thoughts and actions through his own writings. Using his background in psychology, the author explores the question of the killer's sanity and the fairness of his subsequent trial. Within its pages the reader will find an account of the murder of Spencer Perceval and a well-developed portrait of his assassin.

Stamford '76: A True Story of Murder, Corruption, Race, and Feminism in the 1970s
In July 1976, a twenty-four-year-old white woman, Margo Olson, was found in a shallow grave in Stamford, Connecticut, with an arrow piercing through her heart. A few weeks later, Howie Carter, her black boyfriend, was killed by the police. Howie and Margo's interracial relationship held a distorted mirror to the author's own, with Howie's best friend, Joe. Joe's theory was that the police didn't have any evidence to arrest Howie; operating on the assumption that the black man is always guilty, they killed him instead. Margo's murder was never solved. Looking back at what might have happened in 1976, the author discovers a Bicentennial year steeped in recession, racism, and unrelenting violence. It was also a time of flourishing second-wave feminism, when young women were encouraged to do anything, if only they knew how. Stamford was in the midst of urban renewal, destroying historically black neighborhoods to create space for corporations escaping a bankrupt and dangerous New York City, just forty miles away. Organized crime followed the money, infiltrating Stamford at all levels. The author reveals how racism, misogyny, the economy, and corruption affected the young people's daily lives, and helped lead Margo and Howie to their deaths.

Fat Freddie: A gangster's life - the bloody career of Freddie Thompson
'A fascinating read' Sean O'Rourke, Today with Sean O'Rourke, RTE 'Fat' Freddie Thompson first appeared in court in 1997. He was seventeen and already aspiring to be a major crime boss. Over the next twenty years his criminal career would be marked by mayhem, brutality and murder. In 2000 a row over a failed drugs deal ignited a murderous feud in Dublin's south inner city. The first victim of the Crumlin-Drimnagh feud was a childhood friend of Thompson's. He vowed revenge and led his Crumlin crew in a series of tit-for-tat killings. Sixteen young men would lose their lives over the next 12 years. Meanwhile, another childhood friend, Daniel Kinahan, had become a senior figure in his father Christy Kinahan's international crime cartel. Working with the Kinahan Cartel Thompson launched himself as a drugs dealer in Dublin. So when an even deadlier feud broke out in 2016 - this time between the powerful Kinahans and veteran Dublin criminal, Gerry 'The Monk ' Hutch - Thompson was one of their staunchest allies and prepared to get his hands dirty. But Thompson's loyalty would be his undoing. In August 2018 he was convicted of murder and jailed. Fat Freddie is a gripping account of the rise and fall of Freddie Thompson. Award-winning crime journalist, Stephen Breen, co-author of the No 1 bestselling The Cartel, has written the definitive portrait of a notorious Dublin gangster, a shocking story of double-crossing, vengeance and murder.

Deep State Target: How I Got Caught in the Crosshairs of the Plot to Bring Down President Trump
Wait till you read this book. It blew me away. . . . Could not have come at a better time as we close the chapter on the Mueller Report. . . . This is a must-read book. . . . This will be a movie. -Sean Hannity Deep State Target is the only firsthand account that proves the attempted sabotage of Donald Trump's presidential campaign by American and international intelligence services, from former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos-whose global network and clandestine meetings about Hillary Clinton's hacked emails made him the first target of Spygate, the Mueller Investigation, and the Russian Collusion Hoax. As a young, ambitious foreign policy advisor to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, Papadopoulos became the first Trump official to plead guilty in special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He is now the first campaign advisor sentenced and to have served time in prison. But as he explains in Deep State Target, there was an intricate set up at play, and it was neither Trump nor the Russians pulling the strings. American and allied intelligence services set out to destroy a Trump presidency before it even started. An energy policy consultant working for the insurgent campaign, Papadopoulos encountered a rogues' gallery of infamous figures employed by agents from the US, Britain, and Australia. Here, he gives the play-by-play of how operatives like Professor Joseph Mifsud, Sergei Millian, Alexander Downer, and Stefan Halper worked to invent a Russian conspiracy that would irreparably damage the Trump administration. Papadopoulos was there: In secret meetings across the globe, on city streets being tailed by agents, and ultimately being interrogated by Mueller's team and agreeing to a guilty plea. Deep State Target is a shocking account of international spy games and a disturbing eyewitness report on a secret double government-the Deep State-intent on destroying lives and a presidency.

Inside an Honor Killing: A Father and a Daughter Tell Their Story
A shockingly intimate look at the world of honor killings, as seen through the eyes of both the perpetrators and the victims. What drives a person to murder their sister, mother, or daughter? What is life like in a society in which women are imprisoned for their own protection, while their potential killers walk free? In this powerful and affecting book, writer and journalist Lene Wold offers a rare window into the world of honor killings --the controversial practice that sees more than five thousand women murdered at the hands of close relatives each year, all to restore their family's reputation. Wold spent more than five years in Jordan, visiting prisons and mosques, reviewing newspapers and judicial archives, and interviewing imams, village elders, and other locals to understand these violent acts. But she also spoke with the killers themselves, including a man who murdered his mother and daughter and attempted to kill his other daughter. In Inside an Honor Killing, Wold shares what she learned, weaving a shocking tale of honor killing told from the perpetrators' perspective as well as the victims'.

Missing: The Unsolved Cases of Ireland's Vanished Women and Children
From 1950 to the present day, there have been almost 900 long-term missing people in Ireland. The equivalent of a vibrant village, all gone, vanished without a trace. Where did they go? Are they dead or still alive somewhere? How many have been murdered? How many killers have got away with their crimes? RTE journalist Barry Cummins has reported on the unsolved cases of Ireland's missing for decades. In this new edition of his bestselling book, he examines the latest leads and developments of Ireland's most high-profile missing cases, including the women who disappeared under eerily similar circumstances in the 1990s and whose bodies have never been found. Written with the assistance of the gardai and the families concerned, Missing is a comprehensive and shocking account of the cases that have in turn fascinated, puzzled and horrified the Irish public. It also examines the possibility that there may be a serial killer out there who has gone to extraordinary lengths to evade justice, leaving open the possibility that they could strike again. `A chilling but authoritative book which is meticulously researched' Sunday Independent

Trail of Shadows: The Unsolved Murders of Prohibition Agents Dale Kearney and Ray Sutton
In the summer of 1930, two federal prohibition agents were murdered. The first died in a hail of buckshot on a dark street in Aguilar, Colorado. Six weeks later, the second agent and his vehicle disappeared on a sunny afternoon along a New Mexico state highway south of Raton. These events occurred during the era when the government legislated a ban on alcohol manufacture, distribution, and sales within the United States. During their 50-year search, the authors sought answers to why no one was ever prosecuted for these crimes. This is the first book to correlate the two murders, identify how and why they occurred, name the parties involved and the roles they played. The authors interviewed many individuals associated with the events and discovered a trove of National Archives files containing incident reports, suspect interview notes, the dead agents' daily activity logs and their personnel files. Building upon this base, they located the remaining documents generated by state and local law enforcement officers and additionally data mined private and public contemporary newspaper collections. The shadows along the trail lift as the light of truth is shown upon this mystery. Two federal agents can now rest in peace.

Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A masterful history of the Troubles. . . Extraordinary. . .As in the most ingenious crime stories, Keefe unveils a revelation -- lying, so to speak, in plain sight. --Maureen Corrigan, NPR From award-winning New Yorker staff writer Patrick Radden Keefe, a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions In December 1972, Jean McConville, a thirty-eight-year-old mother of ten, was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders, her children clinging to her legs. They never saw her again. Her abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as The Troubles. Everyone in the neighborhood knew the I.R.A. was responsible. But in a climate of fear and paranoia, no one would speak of it. In 2003, five years after an accord brought an uneasy peace to Northern Ireland, a set of human bones was discovered on a beach. McConville's children knew it was their mother when they were told a blue safety pin was attached to the dress--with so many kids, she had always kept it handy for diapers or ripped clothes. Patrick Radden Keefe's mesmerizing book on the bitter conflict in Northern Ireland and its aftermath uses the McConville case as a starting point for the tale of a society wracked by a violent guerrilla war, a war whose consequences have never been reckoned with. The brutal violence seared not only people like the McConville children, but also I.R.A. members embittered by a peace that fell far short of the goal of a united Ireland, and left them wondering whether the killings they committed were not justified acts of war, but simple murders. From radical and impetuous I.R.A. terrorists such as Dolours Price, who, when she was barely out of her teens, was already planting bombs in London and targeting informers for execution, to the ferocious I.R.A. mastermind known as The Dark, to the spy games and dirty schemes of the British Army, to Gerry Adams, who negotiated the peace but betrayed his hardcore comrades by denying his I.R.A. past--Say Nothing conjures a world of passion, betrayal, vengeance, and anguish.

The Court of Better Fiction: Three Trials, Two Executions, and Arctic Sovereignty
In its rush to establish dominion over the North, Canada executed two innocent Inuit men. In 1921, the RCMP arrested two Copper Inuit men under suspicion that the two had murdered their uncle. Both men confessed to the crime through a police interpreter, though the confession was highly questionable. The Canadian government used the case to plant their flag in the north, but the trial quickly became a master class in judicial error. Correspondence among the key players reveals that the trial's outcome was decided months before the court was even convened. Authorities were so certain of a conviction that the executioner and gallows were sent north before the trial began. The precedent established Canada's legal relationship with the Inuit, who would spend the next seventy-seven years fighting to regain their autonomy and Indigenous rule of law. Drawing on documents long buried in restricted files in the National Archives, The Court of Better Fiction reveals the disgraceful incident and its fallout in unprecedented detail.

Jack and the Thames Torso Murders: A New Ripper?
A sensational new theory - and an insight into the late Victorian city through an intensively researched social history. Between May 1887 and February 1891, a succession of horrific murders shook Victorian London. During a reign of terror lasting nearly four years, numerous women were attacked. The police at the time believed the killings comprised two distinct sets - with two different killers. Several were attributed to the relatively unpublicised `Thames Torso' series while the majority found their way into the Met's `Whitechapel' or Jack the Ripper file. Despite the best efforts of contemporary detectives, no-one was ever prosecuted for these crimes and, until now, no convincing suspect has been put forward for both sets of murders. This ground-breaking work has examined new lines of enquiry generated by recent scholarship. With several `Thames Torso' killings now attributable to his hand, `Jack' it seems was culpable in upwards of sixteen assaults - at least thirteen of them fatal. This individual was amply possessed of the three `cardinals' of the murderer - means, motive and opportunity - and the authors offer long-sought solutions to several case conundrums such as the Goulston Street `evidence', the enduring `Mad Doctor' theory and the Pinchin Street `cross-over'.

Love and Death in the Sunshine State: The Story of a Crime
When a stolen car is recovered on the Gulf Coast of Florida, it sets off a search for a missing woman, local motel owner Sabine Musil-Buehler. Three men are named persons of interest - her husband, her boyfriend, and the man who stole the car. Then the motel is set on fire; her boyfriend flees the county; and detectives begin digging on the beach of Anna Maria Island. Author Cutter Wood was a guest at Musil-Buehler's motel as the search for her gained momentum, and he was drawn steadily deeper into the case. Driven by his own need to understand how a relationship could spin to pieces in such a fatal fashion, he began to talk with many of the people living on Anna Maria, and then with the detectives, and finally with the man presumed to be the murderer. But there was only so much that interviews and transcripts could reveal. In trying to understand how we treat those we love, this book, like Truman Capote's classic In Cold Blood, tells a story that exists outside documentary evidence. Wood carries the investigation of Sabine's murder beyond the facts of the case and into his own life, crafting a tale about the dark conflicts at the heart of every relationship.

`An Extraordinary story of innocence and persecution, determination and grit ... it had me rattling through the pages' SOPHIE DRAPER A gripping true crime investigation into the longest miscarriage of justice in British legal history. In September 1973, Stephen Downing was convicted and indefinitely sentenced for the murder of Wendy Sewell, a young legal secretary in the town of Bakewell in the Peak District. Wendy was attacked in broad daylight in Bakewell Cemetery. Stephen Downing, the 17-year-old groundskeeper with learning difficulties and a reading age of 11, was the primary suspect. He was immediately arrested, questioned for nine hours, without a solicitor present, and pressured into signing a confession full of words he did not understand. 21 years later, local newspaper editor Don Hale was thrust into the case. Determined to take it to appeal, as he investigated the details, he found himself inextricably linked to the narrative. He faced obstacles at every turn, and suffered several attempts on his life. All of this merely strengthened his resolve: why should anyone threaten him if Downing had committed the crime? In 2002, Stephen Downing was finally acquitted, having served 27 years in prison. Immerse yourself in this masterful account of Hale's long, dedicated and often dangerous campaign to rescue a long-forgotten victim of the British legal system; the longest miscarriage of justice in British history.

Mystery on the Isles of Shoals: Closing the Case on the Smuttynose Ax Murders of 1873
The shocking but true story behind the film and bestselling novel, The Weight of Water The cold-blooded ax murder of two innocent Norwegian women at their island home off the Maine and New Hampshire coast has gripped the region since 1873, beguiling tourists, inspiring artists, and fueling conspiracy theorists. The killer, a handsome Prussian fisherman down on his luck, was quickly captured, convicted in a widely publicized trial, and hanged in an unforgettable gallows spectacle. But he never confessed and, while in prison, he gained a circle of admirers whose blind faith in his innocence still casts a shadow of doubt. A fictionalized bestselling novel and a Hollywood film have further clouded the truth. Finally, a definitive whydunnit account of the Smuttynose Island ax murders has arrived. Popular historian J. Dennis Robinson fleshes out the facts surrounding this tragic robbery gone wrong in a captivating true-crime page-turner. He goes beyond the headlines of the burgeoning yellow press to explore the deeper lessons about American crime, justice, economics, and hero worship. Years before the Lizzie Borden ax murder trial and the fictional Sherlock Holmes, Americans met a sociopath named Louis Wagner-and many came to love him.

Apology for a Murder
Famed for having killed his cousin Alessandro, the Duke of Florence, in 1537, but also for writing accomplished literary works, including a comedy and several poems, Lorenzino de' Medici remains one of the most enigmatic figures of Italian literature. In his masterpiece, Apology for a Murder, he reveals the inner motives behind his act, portraying himself as a hero to be numbered alongside the great tyrannicides of ancient Rome and Greece. Lorenzino himself, in 1548, was murdered by two soldiers hired either by the emperor Charles V or by Cosimo, Alessandro's successor as Duke, and this volume includes the dramatic account of his killing by Francesco Bibboni, one of the assassins, as well as a selection of Lorenzino's poems, giving a fully rounded image of the antihero of Alfred de Musset's Lorenzaccio.

L.A.'s Deadliest Serial Killer
?From 1962 to 1977, Patrick Wayne Kearney was the most bizarre and deadliest murderer in California's history. Even though he appeared to be friendly on the surface, Kearney secretively manifested a severe homicidal - necrophilia behavior that cost over three dozen people their lives. Personally, I did not perceive any abnormal or peculiar characteristics in his persona; he appeared to be a calm, soft-spoken considerate man, but this compassion turned out to be pure deception to lure victims to their deaths. My brother and I were fortunate, we escaped. Serial Killer Patrick Kearney refused to attend parole hearings as long as relatives of murdered victims were present. He has never attended even one hearing to date. Relatives of victims speak out for the first time in this shocking story.

The Silencing of Ruby McCollum: Race, Class, and Gender in the South
The Silencing of Ruby McCollum refutes the carefully constructed public memory of one of the most famous-and under-examined-biracial murders in American history. On August 3, 1952, African American housewife Ruby McCollum drove to the office of Dr. C. LeRoy Adams, beloved white physician in the segregated small town of Live Oak, Florida. With her two young children in tow, McCollum calmly gunned down the doctor during (according to public sentiment) an argument over a medical bill. Soon, a very different motive emerged, with McCollum alleging horrific mental and physical abuse at Adams's hand. In reaction to these allegations and an increasingly intrusive media presence, the town quickly cobbled together what would become the public facade of Adams's murder-a more acceptable motive for McCollum's actions. To ensure this would become the official version of events, McCollum's trial prosecutors voiced multiple objections during her testimony to limit what she was allowed to say. Employing multiple methodologies to achieve her voice-historical research, feminist theory, African American literary criticism, African American history, and investigative journalism-Evans analyzes the texts surrounding the affair to suggest that an imposed code of silence demands not only the construction of an official story but also the transformation of a community's citizens into agents who will reproduce and perpetuate this version of events, improbable and unlikely though they may be.

Guy Bradley, born in Chicago in 1870, was killed in 1905 only three years into his tenure as game warden in a south Florida that was still very much a frontier. His murderer, never prosecuted, was a one-eyed former Civil War sharpshooter who made his living supplying exotic plumage for women's hats.

Lynching and Mob Violence in Ohio, 1772-1938
During the late nineteenth century, Ohio was reeling from a wave of lynchings and most reasonable people felt something had to be done. But it wasn't just lynchings, there were organized floggings, tar and featherings, and even large scale riots. They were acts born of anger, frustration, distrust of law enforcement, and, of course, racial and ethnic intolerance. In 1892, Ohio-born Benjamin Harrison was the first U.S. President to call for an anti-lynching legislation. Four years later, his home state responded with the Smith Act - an Act for the Suppression of Mob Violence. It was a major step forward and the most severe anti-lynching law in the country, but it did nothing to address the underlying causes. During the period 1771-1938, hundreds of acts of mob violence took place within the bounds of Ohio. Cities burned and innocent people died. Many of these acts were attributed to well-known and respected men-and women-in the community, but few were ever prosecuted. And some were even lauded for taking the law into their own hands. While times have changed, many hearts have not. This is the first book to take a detailed look at mob violence in Ohio.

The Cheetham Hill Murder - A Convenient Killing?
On a hot July afternoon in 1933, 61-year-old Frances Levin - described as a wealthy Jewish widow - was brutally and fatally attacked in her home in Manchester's affluent Cheetham Hill district. Following the biggest manhunt Manchester's CID had ever undertaken, Billy Burtoft, a homeless meths addict, was hanged for her murder in what was believed to be a robbery gone wrong. A recent BBC television programme 'Murder Mystery and My Family' proved Burtoft could not have committed the crime. Clearly, this was a serious miscarriage of justice, but, if Burtoft did not kill Mrs Levin, then who did? Denise Beddows, author of 'Odd Man Out - A Motiveless Murder?', uncovers police corruption, malpractice and suppression of crucial evidence, and reveals a more likely motive and a suspect who was never investigated.
