Crime is rampant. People live in fear. Government officials and the media offer solutions. Sounds like life in the 21st century. But it isn’t.

They include:•A priest who believed his crime was divinely inspired.•A family that was murdered by ax in their sleep and is believed to be victims of a serial killer.•A teenage girl who was either murdered or committed suicide, depending on if the prosecution or the defense team is to be believed.•A delivery man who killed a customer because she forced him to make change.•A killer who blamed his behavior on his love of reading dime novels.

Marijuana, California Chronicles of a Teenage Pot Dealer

by Clayton Ulrich

This story is a historical recording of true events that took place in my life starting in 1976. I mainly wanted to let my kids know what it was like for me growing up in Southern California and my crazy teenage years. I started smoking marijuana at a very young age. My story is through the eyes of a 13-year-old kid coming to age. I had to go back 42 years and put myself back there. But all my life I have wanted to share my story. I never could though because I would have been ridiculed, lose my job, maybe even get arrested. Times are changing and it’s now a perfect time to share my story. You get both of me, my grownup self of today’s world and my inner teenage self from yesteryear. I was able to write my story only by chance. You see, I am a hard-working American who puts in the effort to support my family and the time to take care of my wife Lisa who has MS (multiple sclerosis). Lisa refuses to use marijuana because it is illegal, she has those high morals. No matter it might help her with the intense pain she suffers every day. Opioids no longer give her much pain relief. So, you see I have a purpose too with this book. Please take the words in this book too heart. Go back with me to those days and reflect your own personal experiences. My book is a mix of Cheech and Chong, The Wonder Years, That ‘70s Show, and a bit of The Big Bang Theory all mixed up. If you do smoke marijuana, then I would smoke some as you read my story and take in some of the fun times I had. It’s not all Happy Days, there was serious situations as well. If you enjoy this book and would like me going into it more with more stories please let me know in the reviews, share it, anything you can do. I would appreciate the opportunity to write an expanded edition. So, there you have it. It’s a short simple story that I hope you enjoy. Thank YouClay

Irish Black Widow : The True Story of Annie Monahan

by Cara Davidson

Annie Monahan was arguably the most successful “black widow” of the early twentieth century when you factor in the time it took for authorities to finally catch up with her. She had killed three husbands and her own niece, garnering sizable payouts from life insurance companies as she acted as a beneficiary in all of the cases. She performed these acts of murder in the sleepy town of New Haven, Connecticut, dealing with police who always seem to be one step behind her.
Monahan grew bolder with each murder, increasing payout amounts in each case and even marrying the younger brother of a man she had killed.

Serial Killers Vol. 2 Exploring the Horrific True Crimes of Little Known Murderers (True Crime Murder Case Compilations Book 4)

by Jack Smith

Serial killers fascinates…Extreme cases even more so.
In Volume 2 of Jack Smith’s series Serial Killers, we explore some new cases of true crime stories of little known serial killers

Serial killers are big business. From the endless books, films, and television programs to the fascination of the twenty-four hour news networks, there is something about these mass murderers that catches the eye and catches the attention. While many people are familiar with the better known killers like John Wayne Gacy or Jack the Ripper, this is not the end of the story. There are so many examples of serial killers from around the world that many of them have simply been forgotten about.

But that does not make their crimes any less serious. Instead, some of these serial killers committed heinous acts above and beyond those we have come to expect when thinking about the worst psychopaths in living memory. In cases such as these, the truth is often stranger than fiction. For every Hannibal Lecter or Norman Bates, the murders committed by the people detailed in this book are often more extreme, violent, and off-putting than anything you might find in fiction.

As we delve further and further into the book, we will begin to see not only the extremities of the crimes, but the difficulty that the authorities face when trying to catch a killer. With so many serial killers on the record books of human history, it is a wonder that we have caught as many as we have. Even in the cases where no one has ever been arrested for the crimes, we can learn a lot about the mind sets of the individuals involved. As we travel further into the minds of the forgotten serial killers, we will not only learn more about what turns people into violent mass murderers, but we will learn how these individuals are shaped and treated by society. The morbid fascination we have with serial killers is matched only by the violence of the crimes in question. So, read on and find out more about history’s forgotten serial killers.

Inside find fascinating cases such as:

• The son of a candy factory owner who carried out the Houston Mass Murders
• The Mexican murderer who preyed on migrant farm workers
• The man who would strangle women and leave their bodies beneath the bed
• And many more

Granny Ripper: An anthology of True Crime

by Sarah Thomerson

LITTLE OLD LADY? SHE'LL KILL YOUR ASSLaw enforcement do not often look to older women when they are seeking out suspects. For two decades, this fact kept Tamara Samsonova off the radar of police investigators. In photographs, she’s a thin, frail woman with a mess of blond-brown hair and watery brown eyes. The wrinkles on her face and hands and reminiscent of any innocent old woman off the street. Tamara Samsonova looks as benign as the old woman next door who used to let you play in her yard when you were a child. The shocking reality of Tamara Samsonova, however, is much darker and more twisted than investigators and the general public could possibly imagine. The media took to calling her “The Granny Ripper”, and the nickname is not unwarranted.

Killer Nurse: Life of Serial Killer Genene Ann Jones (Serial Killers Book 15)

by Jack Smith

Hospitals are supposed to a place of healing, but wherever Genene Ann Jones worked, a trail of suspicious deaths followed. What makes this killer nurse one of the most sickening serial killers is that she targeted defenseless, innocent babies and children.Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! Hospitals are where people go when they are sick, when they need medical help, or when they want to check on their health to make sure everything is going well. Nurses, doctors, and other medical staff are protectors that can help others get better, at least that is how it is supposed to be. When children are taken to the hospital, parents are confident that they are putting the lives of their children in the best possible hands for them to get well. What they do not expect is for one of the very people who are supposed to help their child, to hurt them intentionally instead, or even worse, kill them.Death is sometimes a possibility with certain conditions and illnesses, but it isn't usually expected – and even less so when a child dies in a way completely unrelated to the reason they are in the hospital in the first place. When there is confirmation that an intentional overdose of a specific medication was responsible, confusion and fear are quickly replaced by horror and anger.Genene Anne Jones (also known as Genene Anne Jones Turk), although officially convicted of only one murder and one charge of purposeful injury and harm to a child, is believed to have killed or injured somewhere between 45 and 60 children and infants. Jones had a habit of putting children in deathly peril so that she could be a hero and save their lives. Unfortunately, she killed many more than she saved.It is often hard to understand why anyone would want to kill another person, much less someone who has taken the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm and works in a field with the sole purpose of helping and saving people. When the victims are children, the crimes become more appalling. When the killer is a mother, confusion grows even more. What makes a nurse who is a mother herself kill young, helpless children?Read on your favorite devices such as Kindle, iPhone, iPad, Android cellular phone, tablet, laptop, or computer with Amazon's free reading Kindle App.Scroll back up and click the BUY NOW button at the top right side of this page for an immediate download!

Serial Killer: John Haigh: The Acid Bath Murderer

by W Lacky

John Haigh: The Acid Bath Murderer

John Haigh was known to the other residents of Kensington’s Onslow Court Hotel as a successful businessman. He wore smart suits and drove a sports car, but his money did not come from his business. It came from murder.

When residents of the Onslow Court Hotel came down for breakfast on the morning of 19 February 1949, they immediately noticed that one of their number was missing. Mrs Olive Durand-Deacon, a wealthy 69-year old widow, had been a permanent resident at the hotel for some years and was noted for her punctiliousness. It was unlike her to be late for a meal.

Mrs Constance Lane, another resident and a close friend of Mrs Durand-Deacon, was particularly concerned and decided to make a few discreet enquiries. Her concern deepened when the hotel’s chamber maid told her that Mrs Durand-Deacon’s bed had not been slept in.

Ticket Man: Inside the Criminal Underworld of New York City

by Woodson James

This book is an assembly of true mafia stories as told in the words by the people who lived them. For the most part, rats and journalists write true crime books. This book is not one of those pieces of garbage. Therefore, for obvious reasons, I changed the participant names, locations, and event times. Orphaned and homeless in New York City at 14 years old, Carlo Juliano lived on the streets to survive until a local crime family boss, Johnny Toracio, gave him a job, a place to live, and a mentor for his new life as a gangster. For the next few years, Carlo flourished on the streets of New York befriending leaders of construction scams, art theft rings, drug cartels, biker gangs, extortion rackets, gambling, and cybercrime. In 2015, a series of events ignited a treacherous power struggle for control of New York City’s underworld. Sample from the Chapter titled: The Life that Chose Me.I heard a gunshot and thud hit the ground behind me. I turned around and saw my dad on his back with a blank stare. A cold shudder ran down my spine as I lost my breath. In a few minutes, my life changed forever. A mob hit man murdered my dad on a public street in broad daylight. Earlier that year, my mom overdosed on heroin. I was orphaned and homeless at 14 years old. It was October 10, 2009.In the aftermath, I felt scared, afraid, anxious, rejected, alone, unloved, and depressed. I stole food, and slept in unlocked parked cars on the neighborhood streets. I figured out how to survive on my own. Every now and then, I woke up in the middle of the night in tears staring at the moon and stars wondering, “What happened to my life?”Two months later, it was the night before Christmas. I wandered the streets aimlessly trying to distract myself by looking at decorations in shop windows. I walked past a bar owned by Johnny Toracio several times. He sat at a table inside alone near the front window looking out at the street. He was an important person in the neighborhood. Each time I passed, my grief-stricken eyes met his thoughtful gaze. A few minutes before midnight, he opened the front door intercepting my path and calmly lit his cigarette. He took a deep first cigarette drag and squinted his eyes.December 24, 2009 - FBI Surveillance Tape JOHNNY: Hey kid, I knew your father. Where are you going?CARLO: I don’t know.JOHNNY: Come in here for a moment. It is cold outside. How are you doing?CARLO: I’m alright.JOHNNY: Where are you sleeping tonight?CARLO: Nowhere.JOHNNY: I’m getting ready to leave. You’re sleeping here. This place is yours tonight. I’ll grab you some blankets and a pillow. Here are the keys to the back door. Leave the front door locked. There is food in the bar fridge. I’ll check on you tomorrow afternoon. I have to visit my ex-wife’s house and kid in the morning. If you need to leave, go through the back, and lock up. There is a mattress in the room on the right in the back. Here are the remotes for the televisions above the bar. I got to go, see you kid. Why are you smiling so big? CARLO: I met you. JOHNNY: You met me? Hey, what are you doing for dinner tomorrow night?CARLO: Nothing, I’m wide open.JOHNNY: You want to come to my mother’s house? I’m heading over there.End of FBI Surveillance Tape Dated December 24, 2009His human compassion saved me that night. The next day, I woke up, turned on the TV, made myself sandwiches, and drank sodas. Johnny came by in the afternoon. I couldn’t hold back another big smile when I saw him.I remember sitting at my first holiday dinner with Johnny’s family, which was now my family. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I belonged, like I was wanted, like somebody in this world cared about me.Author Email: woodsontjames@gmail.comAuthor Twitter: @woodsontjames

All three of them mysteriously vanished in the middle of the night and they have never been seen again.DENA THOMPSONDena Thompson is a woman who held power over every man that had the misfortune of falling for her charms. Dubbed a psychopath, Dena succeeded in fooling everyone around her, including investigators, with her lies and charm for over twenty years. Dena would post to Lonely Hearts columns and lure a steady stream of lovers and husbands into her world, eventually leaving each one emotionally and financially bankrupt. Her first husband lost everything to her and wound up as a desperate man on the run from a mafia threat that did not exist. With one husband gone and his money spent, Thompson would go on to bigamously marry Julian Webb, a successful advertising salesman. In three short years, Mr. Webb would be found dead in his bed from an unexplainable drug overdose. Thompson’s third and final husband would soon be fighting for his life when she suddenly attacked him with a bat. Still, somehow, this master manipulator would convince an entire jury that she was nothing less than the victim of abuse. No matter how many fruitless chases she sent investigators on, Thompson would not be able to keep the family members and friends of her victims from stringing the pieces together one at a time.Her crimes were finally brought into the light of day and she would be imprisoned for her killings.

The Past is Never Dead: The Trial of James Ford Seale and Mississippi's Struggle for Redemption

by Harry MacLean

“The Past Is Never Dead” is a book about a trial. In January 2007 the federal government charged James Ford Seale with conspiracy and kidnapping in the 1964 murder of two young black men. In May of 2007 Seale was tried for these crimes in Jackson, Mississippi. The book tells the story of the trial from beginning to end, and in the telling recreates the crime itself. The case has all the problems truly cold cases have: missing evidence, deceased or ancient witnesses, and decayed memories. The key evidence against Seale is the testimony of Charles Edwards, a fellow Klansman who was himself involved in the crime.

But the book is about much more than the trial. The title is from William Faulkner in his book “Requiem For A Nun,” and the full quote is: “The Past Is Never Dead. It’s not even past.” The story of the trial is woven together with the story of Mississippi, its past and its ongoing struggle for redemption.
