<h2>From Bestselling Author, RJ Parker, a 900 page, 6 in 1 True Crime Boxed Set of diversified killers.<br />Read for FREE using your Kindle Unlimited membership.</h2><br /><b>INCLUDES</b><br /> <br /><b>ABDUCTION</b><br />Fueled by methamphetamines and deviant motives, nothing was off limits for James Daveggio and Michelle Michaud. Not even their own children. Living out of a specially rigged minivan (a mobile torture chamber that included ropes, hooks, curling irons, duct tape, etc), this cold-blooded murdering duo kidnapped, tortured, raped and killed young girls from Reno, Nevada, to Sacramento, California.<br /> <br />While the local and state police departments, and even the FBI, vigorously searched for the couple, they freely hunted for prey and carried out their months-long spree of abduction and murder.<br /> <br />Warning: This true account is at times quite graphic which some may find disturbing.<br /> <br /><b>BLOOD MONEY</b><br />In Blood Money: The Method and Madness of Assassins, RJ Parker documents over a dozen infamous cases of professional assassins including Richard Kuklinski (The Ice Man), Charles Harrelson (Natural Born Killer) and Vincent Coll (Mad Dog). <br /> <br /><b>KILLING THE RAINBOW</b><br />Various acts of violence involving assault, torture, harassment, and sometimes even murder, have been carried out against members of the LGBT community. Homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender people have also faced constant discrimination in their everyday lives on the basis of their sexual orientation. This discrimination against members of the LGBT community stems from religious beliefs, political views, bias or even internal fear. <br /> <br />This book depicts the history of Gay Rights Movement and several true accounts of violated men and women, includes the most recent shootings at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. <br /> <br /><b>RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM</b><br />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. <br /> <br />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. <br /> <br /><b>REVENGE KILLINGS</b><br />WARNING: SOME PHOTOS ARE GRAPHIC <br />Chris Dorner was a cop with the LAPD who was fired after reporting that his training officer beat up a handcuffed, non-resisting suspect. He appealed and lost. In his manifesto that he posted on Facebook, he vowed to kill those associated with him being fired as well as their families. His first alleged victims were the daughter of the LAPD lawyer who represented him and her fiance. This recent case from 2013 includes several pictures, some of which are quite graphic, including the all-out manhunt for Dorner and his controversial death. <br /> <br /><b>HELL'S ANGELS</b><br />For eight years, two outlaw biker clubs fought to control street-level drug sales in Canada. The notorious Hell's Angels went up against local drug dealers, the mafia, and a rival biker club, the Rock Machine. Bombings and bullets was no stranger in the streets and many unfortunate bystanders got caught in the crossfire. When the smoke cleared and dozens of outlaws arrested, over 150 people were dead. <br />

<p>What is the price of brilliance?</p><p>Why are so many creative geniuses also ruinously self-destructive? From Caravaggio to Jackson Pollack, from Arthur Rimbaud to Jack Kerouac, from Charlie Parker to Janis Joplin, to Kurt Cobain, and on and on, authors and artists throughout history have binged, pill-popped, injected, or poisoned themselves for their art. Fully illustrated and addictively readable, <em>Genius and Heroin</em> is the indispensable reference to the untidy lives of our greatest artists and thinkers, entertainingly chronicling how the notoriously creative lived and died—whether their ultimate downfalls were the result of opiates, alcohol, pot, absinthe, or the slow-motion suicide of obsession.</p>

D<br /><br />urgapur Is A City Of The State Of West Bengal, Located About 180 Km From Kolkata. It Was A Dream Child Of The Great Visionary Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, The Second Chief Minister Of The State. The Well Laid Out Industrial Township, Designed By Joseph Allen Stein And Benjamin Polk Is Home To One Of The Largest Industrial Units In The State, Durgapur Steel Plant, One Of The Integrated Steel Plants Of Steel Authority Of India Limited. Alloy Steels Plant Of SAIL And CMERI, A CSIR Laboratory, Are Also Located Here. There Are A Number Of Power Plants, Chemical And Engineering Industries. Some Metallurgical Units Have Come Up In Recent Years. National Institute Of Technology (Earlier Known As Durgapur Regional Engineering College), Durgapur Is One Of The Prominent Seats Of Engineering And Technological Educations Of The Country. Mighty Emperors Reigned In This Region Over The Centuries But It Is Difficult To Pinpoint As To Who Exactly Held Sway Over The Area At Different Points Of Time. Historians Talk Of This Region Being A Part Of The Maurya And Gupta Empires, The Empire Of Harsha Vardhan And The Mughals. Being A Geographical Border Region, It Could Have Been On Either Side Of The Virtually Unmarked And Flexible Borders Of The Mighty Empires. Moreover, The Infertile Soil With Deep Impenetrable Forests And Wild Animals Was Probably Not A Very Inviting Proposal For Any Emperor On The Look Out For Wealth And Treasures. Even When Coal Mining Made Forays Into The Adjoining Asansol-Ranigunj Area From The Late Eighteenth Century, And Factory Chimneys Reared Their Heads In The Sky Somewhat Later, Durgapur Remained An Impenetrable Jungle That Few Dared To Trespass Into.<br />

The Road is an autobiographical memoir by Jack London, first published in 1907. It is London's account of his experiences as a hobo in the 1890s, during the worst economic depression the United States had experienced up to that time. He describes his experiences hopping freight trains, "holding down" a train when the crew is trying to throw him off, begging for food and money, and making up extraordinary stories to fool the police. He also tells of the thirty days that he spent in the Erie County Penitentiary, which he described as a place of "unprintable horrors," after being "pinched" (arrested) for vagrancy. In addition, he recounts his time with Kelly's Army, which he joined up with in Wyoming and remained with until its dissolution at the Mississippi River.

Fatal Car Accidents of the Rich and Famous<br /><br />Contents<br />Introduction; Isadora Duncan; George Patton; James Dean; Jackson Pollock; Eddie Cochran; Porfirio; Rubirosa; Jayne Mansfield; Steve Prefontaine; Marc Bolan; Grace Kelly; Cliff Burton; Billy Martin; Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed; Cozy Powell; Dale Earnhardt; Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes; Randy Savage; Frank Ryan; Ryan Dunn; Dan Wheldon <br /><br />Morbid Curiosity <br />Whenever we see a car crash, whether it’s the event itself or simply the aftermath, we can’t help but stare. If we attempt to deconstruct our fascination with road accidents, it can lead to some uncomfortable truths. Some of us are grimly drawn to the sheer devastation of the wreckage, and become transfixed as we scan it for body parts. Here the concept of ‘morbid curiosity’ can be applied – and not just to the weirdoes. In fact, most people are guilty of finding it irresistible to look. This phenomenon is surely the origin of phrases like ‘car crash TV’, or when something is described as, ‘like a car accident’, due to how horrible it is to look at. <br />Matters of Mortality <br />Others are gripped by sheer nosiness, with the need to be ‘in the know’ and equipped with information; after all, knowledge is power. Some become shocked; an accident can serve as a stark reminder that we are vulnerable, at any moment, to an identical fate. Here the accident provides a close enough encounter with death or injury to feel some degree of fear, and get a taste of our own mortality. When we hear of a celebrity, someone we think of as immortal and untouchable, perishing in such an unglamorous way, the fascination is tenfold. We become obsessed, and we want to see the photos in the press, news clips on television and discover every last gruesome detail. Today, we also want to blog about it and comment on Facebook and Twitter, too. We become emotionally invested in these people, and follow their every move. When they die their story abruptly ends, and their status is promoted from ‘star’ to ‘legend’ or ‘icon’. The death of a celebrity is always a hot topic; and the more outrageous and shocking the method, the better.<br />In Fatal Car Accidents of the Rich and Famous, infamous automobile accidents involving the rich and famous are explored. From princess and screen siren Grace Kelly to MTV star Ryan Dunn; their horrific last moments behind the wheel are retold, the wreckage is carefully picked over, and we examine the public reaction that cemented their legacy. <br /><br />Author Biography<br />Jennifer Davies is a freelance writer, editor and photographer from East Sussex. After completing her degree in Creative Writing, she worked as an editor for a publisher for six years, while writing gig reviews. <br /><br />Print length : 120 pages
