The Krays: Kill Order Audiobook

The Krays: Kill Order

Author: Bernard O'mahoney Narrator: Bernard O'mahoney Release Date: December 2018

"Ronnie and Reggie Kray remain two of the most infamous criminals in British history. Legends to many, their fame was built on a fearsome reputation and almost mythical celebrity-like status, but who were the real Kray twins? Born and brought up in the East End of London, the Krays became involved in petty crime at an early age and their dark and violent temperaments soon became apparent when Ron and Reg became embroiled in all aspects of crime including armed robbery, protection rackets and assault. The public, however, saw them as charming nightclub owners. Their Robin Hood-like reputations were a stark contrast to their real lives. On the surface, they were mixing with celebrities and Lords, being photographed by David Bailey and enjoying the thrills of the swinging sixties but behind closed doors they were leading sordid personal lives and orchestrating heinous crimes such as the 'disappearance' of Frank Mitchell and the brutal murders of Jack 'The Hat' McVitie and George Cornell. Public opinion was split but how were the twins viewed by their contemporaries? This is the inside story of the Krays, told by the people who stood by their side for all those years. Featuring: Freddie Foreman, Frankie Fraser, Eddie Richardson, Albert Donoghue, Lenny Hamilton, Billy Frost, Jimmy Tippett Snr, Albert Chapman, Toby Von Judge, Maureen Flanagan, Bernard O'Mahoney. Plus exclusive audio recordings of Reggie Kray. "

Journey into Darkness Audiobook

Journey into Darkness

Author: John E. Douglas, Mark Olshaker Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: November 2018

In the #1 New York Times bestseller Mindhunter, John Douglas, who headed the FBI's elite Investigative Support Unit, told the story of his brilliant and terrifying career tracking down some of the most heinous criminals in history. Now, working again with his coauthor Mark Olshaker, Douglas delves further into the criminal mind with a series of chilling new cases. Follow the FBI's premier investigative profiler as he penetrates the minds and motives of the most terrifying serial killers. In Journey into Darkness, Douglas profiles vicious serial killers, rapists, and child molesters. Some of the unique cases Douglas discusses include the Claremont killer, the schoolgirl murders that became known as Canada's "trial of the century," Richmond, Virginia's first serial murderer, and the double homicide of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. With Journey into Darkness, Douglas provides more than a glimpse into the minds of serial killers; he demonstrates what a powerful weapon behavioral science has become. Profiling criminals helps not only to capture them, but also helps society understand how these predators work and what can be done to prevent them from striking again. Journey into Darkness continues this perilous trip into the psyche of the serial killer, but also offers a glimmer of hope that profiling may enable law enforcement to see the indicators of a serial killer's mind and intervene before he kills—or kills again.

The Dark Heart: A True Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigator Audiobook

The Dark Heart: A True Story of Greed, Murder, and an Unlikely Investigator

Author: Joakim Palmkvist Narrator: Ulf Bjorklund Release Date: November 2018

A chilling true crime story of poisonous family secrets, love gone wrong, and a cold case that refused to stay buried… In late summer of 2012, millionaire landowner Göran Lundblad went missing from his farm in Sweden. When a search yielded nothing, and all physical evidence had seemingly disappeared, authorities had little to go on—except a disturbing phone call five weeks later from Göran’s daughter Maria. She was sure that her sister, Sara, was somehow involved. At the heart of the alleged crime: Sara’s greed, her father’s land holdings, and his bitter feud with Sara’s idler boyfriend. With no body, there was no crime—and the case went as cold and dark as the forests of southern Sweden. But not for Therese Tang. For two years, this case was her obsession. A hard-working ex-model, mother of three, and Missing People investigator, Therese was willing to put her own safety at risk in order to uncover the truth. What she found was a nest of depraved secrets, lies, and betrayal. All she had to do now, in her relentless and dangerous pursuit of justice, was prove that it led to murder.

Dirty John and Other True Stories of Outlaws and Outsiders Audiobook

Dirty John and Other True Stories of Outlaws and Outsiders

Author: Christopher Goffard Narrator: George Newbern Release Date: November 2018

A collection of newspaper stories by award-winning Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard—including "Dirty John," the basis for the hit podcast and the upcoming Bravo scripted series starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. Since its release in fall 2017, the "Dirty John" podcast—about a conman who terrorizes a Southern California family—has been downloaded more than 20 million times, and will soon premiere as a scripted drama on Bravo starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. The story, which also ran as a print series in the Los Angeles Times, wasn't unfamiliar terrain to its writer, Christopher Goffard. Over two decades at newspapers from Florida to California, Goffard has reported probingly on the shadowy, unseen corners of society. This book gathers together for the first time "Dirty John" and the rest of his very best work. "The $40 Lawyer" provides an inside account of a young public defender's rookie year in the legal trenches. "Framed" offers an unblinking chronicle of suburban mayhem (and is currently being developed by Netflix as a film starring Julia Roberts). A man wrongly imprisoned for rape, train-riding runaways in love, a Syrian mother forced to leave her children in order to save them, a boy who grows up to become a cop as a way of honoring his murdered sister, another boy who struggles with the knowledge that his father is on death row: these stories reveal the complexities of human nature, showing people at both their most courageous and their most flawed. Goffard shared in the Los Angeles Times' Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2011 and has twice been a Pulitzer finalist for feature writing. This collection—a must-read for fans of both true-crime and first-rate narrative nonfiction—underscores his reputation as one of today's most original journalistic voices.
