The Murder That Changed a City
The tragic story of Shoeshine Boy Emanuel Jaques has been the basis of novels, short stories, a documentary, a play, songs, a children’s book on the dangers of abduction, and dozens of essays, but never a True Crime book…until now.
The torture and killing of Emanuel over a 12-hour period above a seedy Toronto body rub parlour outraged citizens who demanded change to Toronto’s Yonge Street strip, which by 1977 resembled New York’s grimy 42nd Street with its many X-rated movie theatres, massage parlours, pornographic bookstores, and prostitutes.
Through a series of original interviews, archival research, and previously unpublished documents, author Robert J. Hoshowsky recreates in detail Emanuel’s brutal death, the hunt for the boy’s killers, the shocking trial and press coverage, the controversial Yonge Street clean-up, and what remains one of the most sensational True Crime cases in Canadian history.M William Phelps - Targeted

Perhaps best known for my TV presence and being a Hay House author, my psychic and spiritual connection gifts were activated when, in adulthood, a near death experience allowed me access to other worlds and powers available to us in our universe.
On reflection these abilities were clearly trying to make themselves known consistently from my early childhood as I experienced many communications with souls that had passed.
Since then I have been on a mission to help others tap into their own innate powers and walk their own spiritual pathway with confidence. I combine a lovingly cultivated treasure trove to help you achieve this via my writing, workshops and private client services Qabalah Tarot

On July 22, 1991, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested. As the officers searched his apartment in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they discovered dismembered body parts in the refrigerator. Further investigation led them to photographs of other victims which Dahmer dismembered. Upon confessing to officers, Dahmer admitted to acts of necrophilia and cannibalism. For the first time in print, Dahmer’s Confession presents the Milwaukee cannibal’s complete confession, raw and uncensored. Jeffrey Dahmer’s inclusion into the Serial Killer Culture is illustrated in the book by including artworks based on Dahmer and writings by those affected by Dahmer’s case and crimes.Jake Bernstein - 'Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money'

A hidden circulatory system flows beneath the surface of global finance, carrying trillions of dollars from drug trafficking, tax evasion, bribery, and other illegal enterprises. This network masks the identities of the individuals who benefit from these activities, aided by bankers, lawyers, and auditors who get paid to look the other way.
In Secrecy World, the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein explores this shadow economy and how it evolved, drawing on millions of leaked documents from the files of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca―a trove now known as the Panama Papers―as well as other journalistic and government investigations. Bernstein shows how shell companies operate, how they allow the superwealthy and celebrities to escape taxes, and how they provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe.
Bernstein traveled to the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, and within the United States to uncover how these strands fit together―who is involved, how they operate, and the real-world impact. He recounts how Mossack Fonseca was exposed and what lies ahead for the corporations, banks, law firms, individuals, and governments that are implicated.
Secrecy World offers a disturbing and sobering view of how the world really works and raises critical questions about financial and legal institutions we may once have trusted.Peter Vronsky - Sons of Cain

Before the term was coined in 1981, there were no "serial killers." There were only "monsters"--killers society first understood as werewolves, vampires, ghouls and witches or, later, Hitchcockian psychos.
In Sons of Cain--a book that fills the gap between dry academic studies and sensationalized true crime--investigative historian Peter Vronsky examines our understanding of serial killing from its prehistoric anthropological evolutionary dimensions in the pre-civilization era (c. 15,000 BC) to today. Delving further back into human history and deeper into the human psyche than Serial Killers--Vronsky's 2004 book, which has been called the definitive history of serial murder--he focuses strictly on sexual serial killers: thrill killers who engage in murder, rape, torture, cannibalism and necrophilia, as opposed to for-profit serial killers, including hit men, or "political" serial killers, like terrorists or genocidal murderers.
These sexual serial killers differ from all other serial killers in their motives and their foundations. They are uniquely human and--as popular culture has demonstrated--uniquely fascinating.
