One glorious autumn day in 1894, a drifter attacked thirteen-year-old Jessie Keith so violently that people thought Jack the Ripper must be loose in rural Ontario. To solve the crime, the government called in Detective John Wilson Murray, the true-life model for Detective William Murdoch of the popular TV series Murdoch Mysteries. His prime clue was a black valise. The Man with the Black Valise traces the killer's trajectory through three counties-a route that today connects travelers to poignant reminders of nineteenth-century life.

Innocent Victims: The True Story of the Eastburn Family Murders Audiobook

Innocent Victims: The True Story of the Eastburn Family Murders

Author: Scott Whisnant Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: October 2019

On Mother's Day, 1985, the bodies of Kathryn Eastburn and her two young daughters were found in their Fayetteville, North Carolina, home. Katie, an air force captain's wife, had been raped and stabbed to death. Kara and Erin's throats had been slit. Their toddler sister, Jana, was the only survivor of a bloody killing spree that terrified a community still reeling from the conviction, six years prior, of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald for the savage slayings of his pregnant wife and two daughters. The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department soon focused its investigation on US Army soldier Tim Hennis. Detectives and local prosecutors built their case on circumstantial evidence and a jury convicted Hennis and sentenced him to death. But his defense team refused to give up. Piece by piece, they discredited the state's case, exposing false testimony, concealed evidence, and prosecutorial misconduct. At a second trial, Hennis was found not guilty and released from death row. But an even more stunning turn of events was yet to come. Twenty-five years after the murders, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation tested a crucial piece of DNA evidence from the crime scene. The shocking results led to an unprecedented third trial to determine Tim Hennis's guilt or innocence.

Death of an Altar Boy: The Unsolved Murder of Danny Croteau and the Culture of Abuse in the Catholic Audiobook

Death of an Altar Boy: The Unsolved Murder of Danny Croteau and the Culture of Abuse in the Catholic

Author: E. J. Fleming Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: October 2019

The tragic death of thirteen-year-old Danny Croteau in 1972 faded from headlines and memories for twenty years until the Boston abuse scandal-a string of assaults taking place within the Catholic Church-exploded in the early 2000s. Despite numerous indications, including forty claims of sexual misconduct with minors, pointing to him as Croteau's killer, Reverend Richard R. Lavigne remains "innocent." Drawing on more than ten thousand pages of police and court findings and interviews with Danny's friends and family, fellow abuse victims, and church officials, the author uncovers the truth-church complicity in the cover-up and masking of priests' involvement in a ring of abusive clergy-behind Croteau's death and those who had a hand in it.

The Billionaire Murders: The Mysterious Deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman Audiobook

The Billionaire Murders: The Mysterious Deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman

Author: Kevin Donovan Narrator: Kevin Donovan Release Date: October 2019

A top journalist crosses the yellow tape to investigate a shocking high-society crime. Billionaires, philanthropists, socialites . . . victims. Barry and Honey Sherman appeared to lead charmed lives. But the world was shocked in late 2017 when their bodies were found in a bizarre tableau in their elegant Toronto home. First described as murder-suicide - belts looped around their necks, they were found seated beside their basement swimming pool - police later ruled it a staged, targeted double murder. Nothing about the case made sense to friends of the founder of one of the world's largest generic pharmaceutical firms and his wife, a powerhouse in Canada's charity world. Together, their wealth has been estimated at well over $4.7 billion.   There was another side to the story. A strategic genius who built a large generic drug company - Apotex Inc. - Barry Sherman was a self-described workaholic, renowned risk-taker, and disruptor during his fifty-year career. Regarded as a generous friend by many, Sherman was also feared by others. He was criticized for stifling academic freedom and using the courts to win at all costs. Upset with building issues at his mansion, he sued and recouped millions from tradespeople. At the time of his death, Sherman had just won a decades-old legal case involving four cousins who wanted 20 percent of his fortune.   Toronto Star investigative journalist Kevin Donovan chronicles the unsettling story from the beginning, interviewing family members, friends, and colleagues, and sheds new light on the Shermans' lives and the disturbing double murder. Deeply researched and authoritative, The Billionaire Murders is a compulsively readable tale of a strange and perplexing crime.

Italy's Most Powerful Mafias: The History and Legacy of the Cosa Nostra, La Camorra, and 'Ndrangheta Audiobook

Italy's Most Powerful Mafias: The History and Legacy of the Cosa Nostra, La Camorra, and 'Ndrangheta

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Jim Johnston Release Date: October 2019

The word "mafia," Sicilian in origin, is synonymous with Italy, but Italy is home to several different mafias, with three being particularly notorious. While the Cosa Nostra of western Sicily is the most infamous, other powerful groups include the ferocious 'Ndrangheta of Calabria and the Camorra, the third-largest mafia, which is active in Naples and the Campania region. A "mafia" is loosely defined as a criminal organization that is interested in social, economic and political power, combining elements of a traditional secret society with those of a business, but further levels of nuance are necessary in order to understand these groups. In a general sense, this is because each mafia creates a myth about the development of the organization, which becomes like an unquestionable truth. In essence, part of what makes its members so completely loyal to it is also what makes outsiders so utterly afraid of it. While all three mafias have initiation rituals dating to the 19th century, the oldest of the three belongs to the Camorra. The rituals date back to 1850, as the Camorra was taking shape in the prisons of southern Italy. In this simple but profound ritual, the new member was told to take an oath over crossed knives and then made to have a dagger fight with another man (either another possible initiate or a current member). However, the blades would be wrapped leaving just the point exposed, so that the only objective would be to draw a faint trace of blood, after which the fight would end. This ritual ceased in 1912, around the time that the Neapolitan Honored Society dissolved itself, and as it reconstituted itself in various formations over the course of the century, it never again returned to those more antiquated rituals. Instead, the group began to exist more as a loose network of criminals, all working for their own enrichment.

Robert Kennedy: JFK: The Death of Marilyn Monroe: Who Didn't Kill Them Audiobook

Robert Kennedy: JFK: The Death of Marilyn Monroe: Who Didn't Kill Them

Author: Albert Jack Narrator: Albert Jack Release Date: October 2019

From the bestselling author of Pop Goes the Weasel, Red Herrings, New World Order, 9/11 Conspiracy and many more. Robert Kennedy, JFK and the Death of Marilyn Monroe. Who Didn't Kill Them? For five decades the world has been told that the killers of John F Kennedy and his brother Bobby were either already dead or languishing in prison. Lee Harvey Oswald was shot the day after the assassination but the Warren Commission, set up to investigate the brutal murder of the President, insists that he did. And that he acted alone. Details in this essay prove beyond doubt that the small piece of evidence that could prove it one way or another has never been revealed. And Sirhan Sirhan, the young Palestinian currently residing at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego County, California, could not have killed Bobby Kennedy either. The evidence, never released until now, prove conclusively that he could not have fired the fatal bullets. And as for their shared lover, Marilyn Monroe? Well, much debate has been had about her untimely death. Was it the CIA? Was it the FBI? Were the Kennedy's themselves responsible, or the Mafia, who also had good reason to silence the dumb blonde? Well, the truth about the death of the Twentieth-Century's most famous actress will surprise many people as further evidence emerges about that untimely event too. This book may be short but it is a great read and will inspire anybody to do their own research into the three of the most famous (and linked) deaths in history. And each with their own conspiracy theories. This is part of Albert Jack's Mysterious World Series

‘Ndrangheta: The History of Italy’s Most Powerful Organized Crime Syndicate Audiobook

‘Ndrangheta: The History of Italy’s Most Powerful Organized Crime Syndicate

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Jim Johnston Release Date: October 2019

The word “mafia,” Sicilian in origin,[1] is synonymous with Italy, but Italy is home to several different mafias, with three being particularly notorious. While the Cosa Nostra of western Sicily is the most infamous, other powerful groups include the ferocious ‘Ndrangheta of Calabria and the Camorra, the third-largest mafia, which is active in Naples and the Campania region.[2] A “mafia” is loosely defined as a criminal organization that is interested in social, economic and political power, combining elements of a traditional secret society with those of a business, but further levels of nuance are necessary in order to understand these groups.[3] In a general sense, this is because each mafia creates a myth about the development of the organization, which becomes like an unquestionable truth. In essence, part of what makes its members so completely loyal to it is also what makes outsiders so utterly afraid of it.[4]    The ‘Ndrangheta (pronounced an-drang-et-ah) is a close neighbor of the Cosa Nostra and currently considered the most powerful (and difficult to spell) criminal organization in Italy. The ‘Ndrangheta is centered around Calabria, the most southwestern region of Italy, almost touching the Sicilian city of Messina. Though it began as far back as the late 19th century, it was not until the 1950s that the ‘Ndrangheta started to spread its tentacles throughout Italy and then across the entire globe, forming an empire that now ranges from Australia and Turkey to Chile to Canada. The fact that the ‘Ndrangheta is overshadowed by the Sicilian Cosa Nostra, as well as by the Neapolitan mafia, the Camorra, allowed it to grow and develop outside of the public eye. For years, people actually considered the Calabrian mafia to be part of the Cosa Nostra as a mere appendage, rather than its own entity.
