Re-Runners First Life: First Life: Volume 1

If you had the chance to go back and relive the last 25 years of your life, retaining all the knowledge and memories you have now; would you make different life choices? Three very different people from different locations, die at the same moment in time and re-awaken at that moment, only it is 25 years earlier. Two men and one woman are reborn in their young and healthy bodies, but their minds retain the memories of their previous lifetime. Will the abused wife choose a different path? Will the stockbroker choose a different wife? Will the serial killer continue on his spree of murder? Follow the journey of three Re-Runners; Kate, Dylan and Christian through this series of rediscovery, changing fates and finding each other. Interview with the Author Q - So, what makes the Re-Runners Series special? A - They say that in the world of stories, there are no NEW ideas and maybe that's true. But I don't think there's been a series of books on this subject, done quite like this before. I'm sure plenty of people have thought - 'If I knew what I know now and could go back and do it all over again - Wow, the things I could achieve. Righting wrongs, avoiding the mistakes of your 'first life'... So many possibilities.' Q - It's an interesting concept, but what genre does the Re-Runner series come under? A - That's a difficult one. It's a mix of the kind of books I like to read, and I like to read everything. First up it's a paranormal time travel book, in the sense that initially the story chronicles the lives of three people, their death and their rebirth. There's also the element of thriller horror with the grisly murders committed by the serial killer, suspense when the FBI and LA detectives are tracking the infamous murderer and of course the mystery of how and why this re-living of lives has happened to them. These three people from different countries (Australia and the US... and later Italy) are thrown into repeating their lives, but retaining all of the knowledge of th

Public Enemies - True Crime Gangster Stories from the Roaring Twenties

From the era of gangsters, molls and prohibition, almost (but not quite), lost in the mists of time, these tales romp along with plenty of action and recreate the atmosphere of this exciting and dangerous era using the vernacular of the times.



You'll have heard of most of these notorious criminals, but possibly not so much about one or two of them. All of them were real, ruthless hoodlums, and all had their "15 minutes of fame", leaving trails of death and mayhem behind them. Most did not live to an old age, and those that did were probably in jail.

Their escapades were daring and reckless and many paid the ultimate price in the end.

Lucky Luciano -From Streetwise Kid to the Father of Organized Crime

Leaving poverty ravaged Sicily for New York with his family at the age of 10; Lucky was running his own protection racket and making a name for himself whilst still in his teens. Inevitably, he moved on to become the undisputed boss of organized crime in the USA, but it was his own 'family's' involvement in prostitution which landed him a jail sentence of 30 to 50 years. It didn't end there however as he continued to run the family affairs from prison where Lady Luck visited him with an offer he couldn't refuse.



Bugsy Siegel and "The Flamingo Hotel"

Through his gambling and bootlegging operations, plus numerous ruthless contract murders, Bugsy Siegel established himself as a key member of "The Syndicate" in New York. Relocating to Las Vegas with the blessing of Lucky Luciano in 1945 to expand the organizations activities, he built the famous Flamingo Club and Casino in the desert of Las Vegas using money provided by the East Coast mobsters. The hopelessly mismanaged project went way over budget, implicating Bugsy in the 'misappropriation' of funds and enraging his bosses - Bugsy's day were numbered.

Dutch Schultz - Beer Baron and Vicious Killer

From the slums of New York, Dutch Schultz rose through the ranks of crime to be named "the nation's top gangster" by the FBI. Claiming to be a good guy simply supplying people with the beer they wanted, (illegally of course), he was also responsible for killing at least two of his own men he suspected of 'skimming' more of the proceeds than was due to them.



Hymies Weiss - The Man Al Capone Feared

Earl Wojciechowski was born on Jan 25th 1898 in Chicago, but over time became known as Hymie Weiss, eventually teaming up with Dean O'Banion the leader of the North Side Gang who he succeeded after his murder in 1924. Hymie swore to avenge his friends death and waged wore on the Torrio-Capone criminal empire, even attempting to assassinate Capone himself. Violent gun battles on the streets of Chicago were regular occurrences during this period as the gangs fought for control of the lucrative bootlegging and other rackets - things had to come to a head sooner or later.

Wilbur Underhill - The Tri-State Terror

It took a 24 man task force to bring down Mad Dog Wilbur Underhill in the end. During 12 years of rampaging through the Southwest he was sentenced to life for a murder in Oklahoma, and received another life sentence in Kansas after escaping jail in a ten man breakout and murdering a policeman. Suspected of involvement in the famous Kansas City Massacre, Wilbur began his life of crime as a burglar, and quickly moved on to armed robbery and murder.

TARGETED BY TWO NEIGHBORS FROM HELL: A True Story about Economic Demise, Slanderous Lies, and Impending Murder (Books by W. Alex James Book 1)

What's this story about?



Attempts at MURDER! Pure and simple.



And LIES too.



It's a true story about life-destroying lies and murder, and about lies aimed at achieving community-wide agreement to murder. Manipulation, economic sabotage, and incessant provocation are all in there too, all mixed up with several other corrupt elements.

This story is orchestrated over two decades by two evil women I'd call enemy 1 and enemy 2 - the first of whom is now deceased, and with events now pushed by the remaining hag through individuals she uses as her puppets to do her dirty-works. And everything is aimed at destroying a neighbor they don't like.

Enemy 1 met a family years ago and decided that they should be eventually deprived of their house.



This initiative, initially, was to facilitate a gift for her niece - as she repeatedly told her friends, including enemy 2 - and, later, to spite the son who'd repeatedly foiled her efforts to swindle this house from his gullible step-mother for next to nothing.



As bizarre as this sounds, all the surrounding evidence and relevant facts will later bear this out - and much more.



Moreover, since the patriarch of that family was retired on a local pension, the family was now financially-challenged and therefore not worthy of a house in the area (so perhaps she had a duty to deprive them of it).



In this endeavor, she targeted the son, their 'only' apparent heir. And, pursuant to this, she initiated an ever-increasing campaign of lies designed to vilify and demonize him, eventually escalating in magnitude to levels designed to garner community-wide agreement that this (lied about) individual was an imbecile who needed to be gotten rid of.



Starting from the mid '70s to early '90s, enemy 1 employed engineered and/or completely fabricated lies about madness, abuse, and parental maltreatment to undermine him with family-members and the wider community, while seeking to apply more lies (and later did) even as she continued to pretend to be extremely fond of the son she sought to destroy.



This effort started to be effective from around the late 80s (multiplied ten-fold to take advantage after a scandal in '95) and continued increasingly (and with increasing effectiveness) until her death somewhere shortly before or after 2010.

After the mid-'80s death of the intelligent patriarch of that family (who she could not even try to trick or manipulate) enemy 1 had targeted the less intelligent, gullible, and malleable matriarch, befriending the woman's scarcely-known grand-daughter, hiring and indoctrinating same to her purposes against the son, and manipulating the matriarch into changing her will to elevate her (enemy 1's paid ally; the grand-daughter) as equal partner with the son on said will.



She also organized the theft and hiding of this will (partly to deprive the son of his avenue to selling the house and moving to the country, as he'd always told her when she inquisitively asked).



Then she set about arranging schemes to have the son eliminated. Murdered!



Naturally, enemy 1's attempts to have the son rubbed out had increased after the matriarch died and the manipulated will came into full effect - with the theft and hiding of the will also organized by her to delay ratification until after the son's murder, so as to ensure that nothing goes to him or his offspring and all goes to her own choice of beneficiary after he's eliminated.



And then she escalated her schemes to have the son murdered, with the first attempt (during a speaker theft) even before the passing of the matriarch. After the passing of the matriarch, and after the stolen/hidden will came into full effect, several elaborate schemes were set up to murder the son, over the ensuing years.

Enemy 1 had recruited enemy 2 in 1993 (partly by telling this small-minded and petty woman that the man said she was inquisitive).

And, together, they wreaked havoc in destroying the man's life.

17 DEADLY WOMEN THROUGH THE AGES

TRUE CRIME: WOMEN SERIAL KILLERS

Our society can barely account for evil in males, let alone imagine it in females. The female nests, creates, and nurtures doesn't she or is it that we just want to believe in the intrinsic non-threatening nature of women?

Yet, history is full of instrumentally violent women: women who have fought wars and battles throughout the world, with no less ferociousness than men, women such as Dynamis of Bosphorous, who starved her husband to death and took control of his kingdom, or Artemisia, the queen of Halicarnassus in the 5th century, who conducted a brilliant but brutal military campaign against the Greeks. Mary Tudor, Queen Mary 1 of England, in 1553 became known as "Bloody Mary," for her extreme cruelty and willingness to execute people.

In this short book meet 17 less known but equally murderous cold blooded women. After reading it you may find your perception of the gentler sex changed irrevocably. Enjoy.

Bulger On Trial: Boston's Most Notorious Gangster And The Pursuit Of Justice

The trial of James "Whitey" Bulger this summer was supposed to bring an end to one of the greatest scandals in the history of the FBI, but it dredged up a toxic swamp instead. Horrific crimes, depraved witnesses and sordid accounts of FBI agents who gave their allegiance to the mob boss emerged from the muck as families of 19 murder victims endured the presentation of broken skulls and jaws along with photos from the morgue. At center stage was the defendant, who had been listed and protected by the FBI as a secret informant. He claimed the government had given him a free pass, but prosecutors fought to keep the trial away from questions of who made Bulger what he became and how. In an extraordinary measure of their outrage, the families of the victims cheered Bulger's own attorneys as they savaged the government's "cover-up" and the deals prosecutors had given to Bulger's former associates to win testimony.

In the first book to explore the trial in a larger context, WBUR investigative reporter David Boeri weaves his daily trial dispatches into the complete backstory of Bulger's ruthless ascent to power, the men and the agency who made that possible, and the families of victims who were victimized again and again by the government's protection of the killer. Boeri's storytelling is informed by 26 years of national award-winning reporting on the Bulger case. He aggressively dug into FBI corruption and tracked the Bureau's delayed, often inept search for the 16-year fugitive.

Years before Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, Bulger travelled to California to follow his own tips in search of Whitey and showed the lack of FBI effort and enterprise. His investigation of crimes aided and abetted by FBI agents took Boeri to old murder scenes of Bulger victims in Oklahoma, Florida and Massachusetts. He followed detectives in the difficult and painful search for the bones of Bulger victims long ago buried. He sought out the families to learn what they had endured and sought out Bulger's criminal associates even tracked some down who were in the Witness Protection Program to chronicle Bulger the boss and Bulger the killer. In "Bulger On Trial," Boeri brings the reader into the same close contact with Bulger's corrupt FBI handler, the younger brother who made a parallel rise to political power, the families, the criminals and the saga that links them all.

Let him have it, Chris

Let him have it, Chris

Two teenage tearaways broke into a wholesale confectioner. Caught in the act by the police, the young burglar decided to fight his way clear. But it all went tragically wrong. In a wild blast of gunfire, the robbery turned into a murder. But who was guilty?

When Christopher Craig called on his friend, Derek Bentley, on the evening of 2 November 1952, Bentley's mother, Lillian, told him that her son was out.

This was untrue. Derek was in the living room, watching a variety show on TV. He had come home early from his regular Sunday evening at the pictures because he had one of his headaches.

Mrs Bentley lied because she and her husband felt that Craig was a bad influence on their son. Although Derek, at 19, was three years older than Craig, he was simple-minded and easily led, and the younger boy was always talking about crime. That morning, Craig had frightened Derek's little brother, Dennis, by showing him a knuckle duster.

Derek had told his parents on occasions that he wanted to be rid of Craig, that he was a "nutter". Still, however, they hung around together. Whatever Bentley told his parents, the two youths had gone house-breaking together more than once.

Craig went away, but a few minutes later there was another knock at the door. A youth introduced himself as Norman Parsley and asked if Derek wanted to come out for a walk. The Bentleys saw nothing to fear in the well - spoken Parsley, and Derek grabbed his coat and went off with him. Craig was waiting for them around the corner, with one or two others.

The previous day, Bentley had pocketed the keys of a butcher's shop in Tamworth Road, Croydon. The shop and, they hoped, the weekends takings were just a short bus ride away from Norbert, where Craig and Bentley both lived. On the bus, Craig presented Bentley with the knuckle duster he had made. Bentley put it in his overcoat pocket, and promptly forgot about it. He hated violence.
