The Encyclopedia of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List Over Fifty Years of Convicts, Robbers, Terrorists, and Other Rogues

Author: Duane Swierczynski Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/02/2014

In 1949, a crime reporter looking for a way to fill a column published the nation's ten worst criminals as classified by the FBI: two accused murderers, four escaped convicts, a bank robber, and three confidence men. In addition to the stark black and white photos that accompanied the article, the public was most moved by the idea that law enforcement was asking them for help. Fired up by the gesture of confidence, Americans banded together to wholeheartedly support the motion, leading to tips that helped facilitate the capture of the advertised criminals. Some of those on the list even surrendered voluntarily due to the increased publicity. The rogues' gallery showcases fugitives such as: * William Raymond Nesbit, first on the list to be captured * James Earl Ray, assassin of Martin Luther King Jr. * Ted Bundy, ruthless serial killer * Ruth Eisemann-Schier, kidnapper and first woman to make the Top Ten * Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, 1993 World Trade Center bomber This encyclopedia includes criminals' photographs, crime details, and interesting fugitive facts as well as a brief history of the list and what it has accomplished in more than fifty years.

Mulholland Books presents... HELL AND GONE There are some criminals so dangerous the world can never know about them. They can't be held in regular prisons. They must never be released. They're here - in a secret underground prison miles away from anywhere. And now, so is Charlie Hardie. The shadowy organisation running the jail sent him there as punishment for getting in their way. But he's not a prisoner. He's in charge. He can leave any time he wants, he's told. There's just one catch: if he goes, everyone in the prison dies, including innocent guards. But when Charlie realises his family may be in danger, he knows he must protect them at any cost. Even if it means blasting his way out, one inmate at a time...

The first of three explosive pulp thrillers arriving back-to-back from cult crime fiction sensation and Marvel Comics scribe Duane Swierczynski. Charlie Hardie, an ex-cop still reeling from the revenge killing of his former partner's entire family, fears one thing above all else: that he'll suffer the same fate.Languishing in self-imposed exile, Hardie has become a glorified house sitter. His latest gig comes replete with an illegally squatting B-movie actress who rants about hit men who specialize in making deaths look like accidents. Unfortunately, it's the real deal. Hardie finds himself squared off against a small army of the most lethal men in the world: The Accident People.It's nothing personal-the girl just happens to be the next name on their list. For Hardie, though, it's intensely personal. He's not about to let more innocent people die. Not on his watch.
