A Scandal in Bohemia: The Life and Death of Mollie Dean (signed by author)
Haigh, Gideon,
ISBN: 9780143789574
Penguin, Melbourne, 2018. First Edition

This book is available and ready to be shipped from our local warehouse. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight.. On the night of 21 November 1930, twenty-five-year-old school teacher Mollie Dean was beaten to death 50 metres from her home in Elwood. The public was shocked: brutal killing, beautiful young victim, no clear motive. The shock deepened when the inquest revealed that Mollie was in bed, figuratively and literally, with Melbourne s bohemian circle, in particular Australia s leading conductor Fritz Hart and the rising star of Australian art Colin Colahan, both married; she had also been the mistress of Australia s mightiest wrestler and body builder Clarence Weber. Mollie was herself an aspiring writer, and in turn was an inspiration. In life she was painted and described in diaries. Her death became part of numerous novels, most notably the classic My Brother Jack. But who was Mollie other than a victim? Gideon Haigh listens to echoes of her voice in court documents, diaries and above all in the art and literature of the world that exploited and excluded her even as it celebrated her in its art, to reveal the dangerous life of a talented young woman without a room of her own.

Far from being the speciality of obscure tribes in the distant jungles, the cannibals are uncomfortably close to home. The cities of America and Europe, the provinces of revolutionary China, the 'Fatal Shore' of colonized Australia and the open lifeboats of a wrecked ship all yield up grisly tales of forbidden meat. The cases covered in this chilling collection include: Armin Meiwes, the internet sex cannibal, by his own account the first predator ever to consume a consenting victim; Ed Gein, the original 'Psycho', whose butchery sent a chill through the heart of America; Jeffrey Dahmer, the zombie-obsessed necrophiliac whose killing spree lasted thirteen years; Daniel and Manuela Ruda, vampiric soulmates who swore that they were the tools of the devil; and, Issei Sagawa, the diminutive Japanese student whose obsession with cannibalism found horrible expression in the murder of his only friend.

El Narco: The Bloody Rise of Mexican Drug Cartels
Grillo, Ioan,
ISBN: 9781408826348
Bloomsbury, Sydney, 2012. First Edition
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. As New/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 323 pages. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. 'War' is no exaggeration in discussing the bloodshed that has terrorised Mexico in the past decades. As rival cartels battle for control of a billion-dollar drug trade, the body count - 23,000 dead in five years - and sheer horror beggar the imagination of journalistic witnesses. Cartel gunmen have attacked schools and rehabilitation centers, and murdered the entire families of those who defy them. Reformers and law enforcement officials have been gunned down within hours of taking office. Headless corpses are dumped on streets to intimidate rivals, and severed heads are rolled onto dance floors as messages to would-be opponents. And the war is creeping northward, towards the United States. El Narco is the story of the ultra-violent criminal organisations that have turned huge areas of Mexico into a combat zone. It is a piercing portrait of a drug trade that turns ordinary men into mass murderers, as well as a diagnosis of what drives the cartels and what gives them such power. Veteran Mexico correspondent Ioan Grillo traces the gangs from their origins as smugglers to their present status as criminal empires. The narco cartels are a threat to the Mexican government - and their violence has now reached as far as North Carolina. El Narco is required reading for anyone concerned about one of the most important news stories of the decade. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Ghosts of Mississippi
Vollers, Maryanne,
ISBN: 9780316914710

Edges very slightly spotted or marked. The book has been read and carries some marks and creases. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. The civil rights movement was just beginning to catch fire in Mississippi on the night in 1963 when white supremacist Byron De La Beckwith crouched in the honeysuckle across the street from NAACP leader Medgar Evers's house and shot him in the back. Three trials and thirty years later, a jury convicted Beckwith of murder and sent him to prison for life, finally concluding one of the most rankling cases of the civil rights era. In Ghosts of Mississippi, journalist Maryanne Vollers tells the inside story of that state's struggle to confront the ghosts of its violent past in order to bring a killer to justice, weaving a compelling narrative that captures the journey from the old South to the new. Drawing on her rare access to prosecutors, Evers's family, and Beckwith himself, Vollers re-creates the events of Evers's life and death, while bringing to light new facts and insights into the assassination case and the conspiracy theories that surround it. The result is a thrilling tale of racism, murder, courage, redemption, and the ultimate triumph of justice. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

On May 28, 1996, Sabine Dardenne was kidnapped by one of Europe's most infamous pedophiles, Marc Dutroux. She was twelve years old. This international best-seller is her courageous and uplifting testimony. "The Dutroux Affair" shook the whole of Europe. Marc Detroux had been convicted of rape, but was released early from prison for good behavior. He went on to kidnap several youg girls, torture them in his basement dungeon, and leave some to die. There were many apparent missteps in the case, and there was a huge public outcry against Belgium's judicial system. In the middle of the immense machinery of investigation and justice, there was Sabine Dardenne herself, Dutroux's last victim. She was held captive for 80 days and survived. Far from sensationalizing the horror, her story, dignified and restrained, is ultimately uplifting. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Biography & Autobiography; True Crime. ISBN: .

Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. An eyewitness account of how Panama, since 1968, has fallen victim to a line of military dictators who have fattened on the misery of a country once democratic and prosperous. The authors, an American novelist and a Panamanian journalist, were actors in the drama of Panama as well as observers. They tell the story of how the darkness fell on Panama, how the tyrants, from Omar Torrijos to Manuel Noriega, became creatures of the secret government of the United States, and were supported long after their true nature was known. It is the story of those tyrants killed, those they corrupted and those who were brave enough to stand up to them. Researched and written several years before the downfall of Manuel Noriega, this book is a powerful indictment of U.S. policy in Panama. Quantity Available: 1.

All items are tracked and details are available on request. . In April 1994 in a remote NSW town, Donna Carson was bashed, doused in petrol and set alight by her de facto partner. She suffered horrific burns to 65% of her body and spent the next six months in hospital lapsing in and out of consciousness. Throughout, what kept her alive was the thought of her two young sons, Coe and Bodean. While she recuperated, social services stepped in and took them away. Against all expectations, Donna recovered, but after her release from hospital,she suffered secondary abuse, this time at the hands of government bureaucracy. She had to fight to regain custody of her children and then for the right to take the stand at her attacker's sentencing. At every step her questions were met with silence. In her search for answers, Donna uncovered a web of lies,conflicting evidence, missing records, negligent investigations and 'a whole lot of people who were suddenly struck deaf and dumb'. Learning from these experiences, Donna has gone on to expose the dangerous betrayals at the heart of our public organisations and private lives. She is a crusader, educator and guardian angel for countless burns survivors and victims of domestic violence and her inspirational and innovative support of victims of crime saw her honoured as the nation's 'Local Hero' in the 2004 Australia Day awards.
