Lazarus's Denial

by Linda Hopkins

Lazarus's Denial is a searing journey through the scars of extreme poverty and abuse. It is a story about survival, about reaching out for love, and about enduring. Finally, it is a story about rising above the unforgivable to find healing and peace.There is such a cinematic quality to this memoir that the reader is both absorbed and shaken by the reality of what Linda is sharing. Understanding slowly replaces horror as the reader witnesses mercy being shown to those who had been completely merciless. Growth, wisdom, knowledge, and power evolve from this mercy, and a prison of self-hatred melts away to set the past free at last."...Daddy left me alone again in the truck. It was cold and dark, and shadows coiled around the trees like giant snakes. I thought I saw bad things shifting steadil...

WHEN WALLS TALK: Why Women Kill

by Alexa Keating

Why do women, the nurturers who typically encourage and support their loved ones suddenly become killers? For some, it is not sudden; it is the last stop before their own murder. For many, the reasons lie squarely within the confines of greed, jealously and rage.

'When Walls Talk' begins at the gates of the Ohio Reformatory for Women where Lauren, an Investigative Journalist, was assigned to complete a newspaper series titled, 'Why Women Kill.' It provides up close and personal details about the thoughts and actions behind 5 different murders, as related by the women who committed them. There is both horror and gore and details that can only be repulsive, and there is the human side of people who appear to have made inhumane choices.

There is a trail of broken d...

Unopened Doors: The True Story of Surviving a Killer

by Gina DePaulo

Author Gina DePaulo led a quiet, orderly life until a mugging concussion reignited vivid memory visions of an older, far more frightening, crime. Back in 1969, an unknown man abducted her, seemingly intending to kill her. With the help of renowned cold case investigator, Paul Holes, Gina hoped to discover the identity of the long-ago would-be killer. On the hunt for the mystery man, she traveled down a shadowy road full of past serial killers, inept detectives and girls gone mysteriously missing in the area of the old crime. As each disturbing facet of the investigation was revealed, it generated not only more memories of the 1969 crime, but also persistent recollections of Gina's early family life as the sorrow, joys and secrets of her childhood spilled out. She soon sensed that her troub...

by Edward Denmark

From Army cadets on Merseyside to action in the Falklands and Northern Ireland

Edward Denmark joined the British army for adventure, and to serve Queen and country. However, as he prepared to go ashore in the frozen, windswept Falkland Islands 8000 miles from Britain, facing a well dug in, larger enemy force, he understood at that moment that this was not for Queen and Country. He was now fighting for his own life, and the chance to see the sunrise once more.

Follow this young soldier as he endures the bitter cold and constant air attack by a very determined Argentine enemy in the Falklands war, to patrolling the brutally violent streets of Northern Ireland, where tragedy came from nowhere. If you have ever wondered what our soldiers face in war and how they keep ...

A Categorised List of 1000 Irish Memoirs and Autobiographies (Irish Reading Lists Book 1)

by M.C. O'Callaghan

This book consists of a very short essay on the value of reading memoirs, followed by a bare bones categorised list of 900 Irish memoirs and autobiographies. Individual memoirs and autobiographies are listed in 32 categories, and other books about Irish memories are listed in the 33rd category.The list will hopefully be useful for academics and journalists. Hopefully too the general public will find it useful. For instance, someone who is interested in sport might want to look up memoirs and autobiographies by Irish sportspeople. For some people, the memoirs and autobiographies might be particularly important. For instance, if someone has cancer, other people’s cancer memoirs might be comforting and useful. This list of memoirs and autobiographies is not yet complete. The author hopes to...

THE Huntington Beach Mystery

by Zac Funstein

There was the red star, a monstrous blotch of crimson swollen and brooding on the horizon and filling a quarter of the sky. There was the fleck of white high up near the top of the red giant, its white-dwarf companion in transit. These were the high jagged crags, falling off suddenly to the sundered, frothy sea with its blood-red sun-track fading to pink and finally to gray far away on either side.

Smith watched the waves break far below him, and he almost stumbled when someone tapped his shoulder.

"That was mean of the man named Jorak." She might have been a woman of Earth, except that she was too thin, cast in a too-delicate mould. Yet beautiful.

Smith shrugged, felt the heat rise to his face and knew that he must have looked like a mirror for the r...

Missing Girls: An anthology of True Crime

AN ANTHOLOGY OF TRUE CRIMETHE DISAPPEARANCE OF MAURA MURRAYThe case of Maura Murray’s disappearance is one that has left police and conspiracy theorists baffled for more than a decade. Her sudden disappearance is one that makes very little sense and the available information regarding who she is as a person and her motive behind her attempt to leave town prior to vanishing isn’t easy to wrap our brains around.Maura has been missing since February 9, 2004. From the time of her disappearance, there have been no credible sightings of Maura. The last person to see her alive, a passing motorist, noticed her oddly calm demeanor following a car crash, but she was gone by the time the police arrived on the scene.Her family is devastated that they haven’t gotten closure, but is also skeptical...

The Tool Box Killer: A collection of True Crime

by Casey Nichols

An anthology of True CrimeA look back at some of the most depraved serial killers in history...The 1970s were a carefree time in the history of the United States. Even though the love and peace of the previous decade were over, people still hitchhiked and accepted rides from helpful strangers. But during the summer of 1979, two depraved criminals terrorized the Los Angeles area by targeting and kidnapping young teenage girls. Their victims were mostly regarded as runaways, so the authorities noticed their crimes months after they were committed. With the discovery of their fifth and final victim, Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris got the nickname The Toolbox Killers because they used common instruments found in any household in order to inflict horrific pain to the objects of their desire. ...

The Murder of Hannah Graham: An anthology of True Crime

by Peter Dover

A collection of True Crime Stories.We live in the age of social media. Or, at least, so we are frequently told. For anybody above the age of forty, such a world can be confusing. Older generations were brought up differently, sensing no need to share their every move, their every action, their every opinion. But times change, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. Of course, we know the down sides of social media. The abuse people feel able to give which they would never utter, at least when sober, were they facing their victim; the impact on sleep as teenagers stare at their screen into the night, unable to relax even when they turn off their phone or tablet; the opportunities the phenomenon gives to exploiters and criminals.Yet there are good sides to the various tools social medi...

A petrified daughter tortured and forced to listen to her parents being shot in cold blood.

Autobiography of an English Baby Boomer

by Mike Newton

When I investigated my family tree and went back to about 1805, I realised that all you could learn about my ascendants was how they were related, where they were born and their occupation every 10 years. It would have been much more interesting if some of them had written about their life.
I was prompted to write my autobiography and have completed it until the age of 65 - hopefully there will be more to add. The aim of it is to pass down information about myself to my future descendants and is aimed at my grandchildren, great grandchildren etc, and I kept in my mind it being read in 100 years time. I asked my two sons if they would be interested in reading my autobiography and they answered in the affirmative. However after sending them my version up to the age of 63 two years ago,...

All these ordinary people who have done extraordinary things in their lifetimes. They are no different than the rest of us -- or are they? Would you have the courage to face and overcome similar obstacles? Stories of tragedy and triumph, highs and lows, hitting bottom and rising back to the top. Re...

This is a story of confronting death and family healing. This is a story of inspiration and overcoming.

Zeromotor Man: The Victorian who invented the ice-rink and sold perpetual motion to the US Navy

by Steve Humphrey

On 26th February 1881 Professor John Gamgee filed a patent application. Gamgee called his invention the ‘Zeromotor’ and he had convinced the Chief Engineer of the US Navy that it would enable ships to operate without fuel, drawing energy from the sea instead. It was the first and last time the United States Patent Office granted a patent for a perpetual motion machine.
The career path of this maverick inventor would be impossible today. Born and raised in Florence, he was initially an outspoken and forward thinking veterinarian. He ran his own college and organised the first ever international veterinary conference. During the Cattle Plague of 1865 his controversial opinions on contagion and germ theory made him the target of nationwide abuse and ridicule. Although ultimately pro...
