John Crutchley seemed to be living the American Dream. Good-looking and blessed with a genius level IQ, he had a prestigious, white-collar job at a prominent government defense contractor, where he held top secret security clearance and handled projects for NASA and the Pentagon. To all outward appearances, he was a hard-working, successful family man with a lavish new house, a devoted wife, and a healthy young son.
But, he concealed a hidden side of his personality, a dark secret tied to a hunger for blood and the overriding need to kill. As one of the most prolific serial killers in American history, Crutchley committed at least twelve murders, and possibly nearly three dozen. His IQ ellipsis that of Ted Bundy, and his body count may have as well.Radical Islamic Terrorism In America Today-Peter Vronsky (encore)
May 28, 2017 03:22 PM PDT
Today's Radical Islamist Terrorist could be just a breath away from any of us: a fellow student, an employee or even the soldier in the next bunk. We could be attacked at a park, a mall, or a dance club.
Americans today are facing an alarming new terrorist threat: 'Self-Radicalized' Terrorist. Unlike previous 'sleepers' like the 9/11 hijackers who infiltrated the United States from abroad, this new breed of 'Terrorist' come from within. Many are natural born Americans or immigrants to the U.S. who, over time, 'Self-Radicalized' themselves through radical Islamist internet propaganda and undertook terrorist action on their own initiative with little or no guidance from overseas terrorist groups.
Unpredictable and often disguised in their previous identity as loyal American university students, government employees, or even members of the US military, this new 'franchise style' of terrorist is difficult to detect.Sophie Lancaster-Catherine Smyth (encore)

"Sophie Lancaster was murdered because she dressed differently to her teenage attackers. In a brutal assault in Lancashire, her boyfriend, Rob Maltby, was also kicked and punched senseless. This is an exclusive insight into the crime by the first journalist on the scene Catherine Smyth. A mother too, her book provides a documentary of what happened from a media and a parent perspective. It details the attack, facts about the town where it happened, the court case and mass media interest and the launch of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. It also uncovers some anomalies. The police admitted initially attending the wrong park; the ambulance service has yet to explain why it took 14 minutes for first paramedics to reach the scene just a mile away."James Fairweather:England's Youngest Serial Killer(encore)
May 28, 2017 03:16 PM PDT
James Fairweather, 15, Britain's youngest serial killer would have continued to hunt random victims had it not been for an observant dog walker. Eerily, she was also Fairweather's third intended victim. Fueled by the grief of his grandmother's passing and anger from being picked on at school, Fairweather turned to violent video games, horror movies, and pornography to escape reality. Soon thereafter, he developed a deep passion for serial killers - becoming one dominated all of his thoughts. When asked by his school teacher what he wanted to be when he grew up, James replied, "A murderer." Fairweather, true to his word, struck twice before police apprehended him and put a stop to this teen-aged killer.Serial Killers and Prostitutes- R.Barri Flowers
May 28, 2017 03:11 PM PDT
Serial Killers and Prostitutes, by award-winning criminologist and Ripperologist, R. Barri Flowers, taps into the bestselling author’s expertise on serial murderers and sex trade workers in offering an in-depth look at four noteworthy cases in which the two worlds collide.
Jack the Ripper, the unidentified Victorian serial killer of at least five prostitutes in the dangerous section of London, known as Whitechapel, in 1888. The Ripper, who slashed and horribly mutilated his sex worker victims, set the tone for diabolical, vicious serial slayers to follow for all time.
Aileen Wuornos was a white American prostitute, who doubled as a serial killer in murdering seven johns in Florida between 1989 and 1990. She claimed they tried to or succeeded in raping her during the course of prostituting herself. In the process, Wuornos ended up being apropos for this book as a sex worker and serial predator.
Kendall Francois was an African American serial killer, dubbed the “Poughkeepsie Killer,” who strangled to death eight streetwalker prostitutes in Poughkeepsie, New York, between 1996 and 1998. Francois used his own residence as a horrifying house of homicides and burial ground.
The Edmonton Serial Killer represented one or more mostly unidentified serial killers who targeted and murdered dozens of prostitutes in the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, between the mid-1970s and the early 2000s, and possibly beyond that. The sex trade worker victims were often picked up in the city’s red-light district stroll, murdered, and dumped in various killing fields in rural areas around Edmonton.Clifford Olson - Elizabeth Broderick (encore)

Eleven children between the ages of nine and eighteen years old were abducted, raped, sodomized and either strangled or knifed to death. Clifford Olson was not only a serial killer, but a true psychopath. And once again, the Canadian government made a deal with the devil, as they did with Karla Homolka and Dr. Shirley Turner. Olson held the location of the bodies for ransom and was paid $10,000 for each burial site. This is a definitive, intense and 'graphic account of Clifford Olson, The Beast of British Columbia, and the eleven innocent children he murdered.'Monster -Serial Killer Peter Kurten- Chris Swinney
May 28, 2017 03:07 PM PDT
He was sent to prison for deserting his comrades, sat in a cell contemplating what to do when he got out. He had no control within the prison walls and it drove him mad. The things that happened to him while in custody, unlocked oppressed sadistic feelings within Peter Kurten, and forced him to unleash a level of sexual deviancy on innocent victims in and around Dusseldorf, Germany, that no one will ever forget.
Young girls, women, and men would succumb to horrific attacks including being bludgeoned by a hammer and stabbed to death. In several instances, Peter admitted to drinking blood from his victims and needing the act of rape and murder to reach orgasm. Oddly, the man lived a double life and his love for his wife drove him to turn himself in. Had he not done so, 'The Monster' would have continued to keep the country locked in fear. for many more years.The Beast of Birkenshaw: Serial Killer Peter Manuel-Chris Swinney
May 28, 2017 03:04 PM PDT
Peter Manuel killed repeatedly, both random and targeted victims, including men, women, and children, because he enjoyed the rush. As a life-long criminal, Manuel mainly committed property crime. That all changed when his heart was broken. The woman he'd been engaged to called off the wedding and left him, causing Peter to snap. His violence escalated then, and Peter terrorized various communities for almost two years. His cockiness had no end, and he went as far as giving a police inspector a ride while the inspector was searching for one of the teenage girls Peter had murdered. Peter toyed with the detective and advised him he thought the police were looking in the wrong spot for the girl. Ultimately, Peter's arrogance and insatiable need for attention led to his demise...one that made him meet his own executioner as he hung from a noose on prison gallows. This is a frightening story because no one was exempt from becoming his victimC.L. Swinney - Killer Handyman William Patrick Fyfe (encore)
May 28, 2017 03:02 PM PDT
A harmless-looking man moved to Montreal looking for a new start and to get off drugs. Somewhere along the line, his urge to prey on unsuspecting women, something he'd done and kept a secret for twenty years, became too much to keep inside. William Fyfe, aka "The Killer Handyman," snapped, leaving at least nine women brutally beaten, murdered and sexual abused (post-mortem). If not for the diligent work of a criminal forensic specialist and her discovery of a single fingerprint, Fyfe may have continued to kill at will, keeping Montreal residents, particularly single elderly women, frightened and sequestered in their own homes.Not so Secret Service ( unedited Interview)Vince Palamara

While there haven't been many Secret Service related books about U.S. presidents, the ones still in print (and even those long out of print) are often sanitized memoirs of a politically correct nature or "tell-all" tabloid historical junk meant merely for entertainment purposes. The Not-So-Secret Service provides the facts with the bark off, so to speak, and reveals politically incorrect information of a decidedly unsafe nature. It may be controversial and against the grain, but this book is heavily documented and timely, as the Secret Service guards our political candidates, foreign dignitaries, and, of course, the President, the first family and the ex-presidents and their families.
