Description
Genovese mob-scion Silvio Eboli lived within the shadows of history, and now for the first time, the untold story of a mafia legend is revealed. “The Ganja Godfather” is the story about an ongoing organized criminal operation, in real time with firsthand accounts and experiences by award-winning author and investigative journalist, Toby Rogers. Shadowing the Ganja Godfather, Rogers witnesses it all standing next to the Boss himself: violence, drugs, celebrities, girls, construction hustles, crime-family business meetings and social gatherings. From strip clubs in Atlantic City to Sunday night dinner with the wife and kids, Rogers experiences whatever the Ganja Godfather does on any given day. As exhilarating as Silvio’s life had become, it certainly was much more stressful behind the scenes. Being the Empire State’s spliff king was undoubtedly the hardest job in New York. And it was only after Silvio finally got to the top of the mountain that he realized just how easy it was to fall over the edge. With a wife and kids, dysfunctional family business obligations, and an out-of-control social life all pulling him in conflicting paths, Silvio struggled keep the empire moving forward without detection from law enforcement. But when he was introduced to a Colombian cocaine princess with aspirations to become a model, he saw an opportunity to expand the family’s profit margins to unimaginable heights and risked it all despite the collision course with disaster he saw right before him.

The Gang as an American Enterprise by Felix M. Padilla

About the Book – The Gang as an American Enterprise


“Padilla writes with earnestness and concern … the author never exploits or sensationalizes the kids he has written about … this is vastly preferable to other recent titles on this timely subject.”- Publisher’s Weekly “This is the most thorough look at the operation of a violent street gang.”-Library Journal “Makes a unique contribution to the literature on Puerto Rican ethnicity, a turf already centrally occupied by the author.”-Jeffrey Fagan, Rutgers University “Padilla has dealt with gang drug dealing-one of the more sensationalized features of urban life-in a down-to-earth and realistic fashion. The reader begins to understand poor minority adolescents in a broad sociological context. This book is a significant contribution to urban ethnography.”-Joan Moore, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee The Diamonds are a Chicago street gang whose members are second-generation Puerto Rican youths. For Felix Padilla the young men who join the Diamonds have made a logical choice. The gang is an alternative and dependable route to emotional support, self-respect, material goods, and upward mobility. Although Padilla shares the same ethnic background as the gang members and also grew up in a Chicago barrio, gaining the trust of the Diamonds was not easy. But eventually he was able to get close enough to the members to interview and observe them. Padilla shows us the process behind the decision to join the Diamonds. From early childhood, boys develop positive images of the gang. They realize that the dominant culture promises mobility, but that their paths to the mobility are blocked. By joining a gang they can creatively oppose the dominant culture. Padilla does not paint a romanticized picture of the Diamonds. Some members come to understand that when they sell drugs, they benefit the gang’s leaders and suppliers more than themselves. Further, they recognize that the gang is also subject to problems of domination and inequality. Padilla shows that though the Diamonds are sometimes violent, they are not psychopaths. While we need not approve of what they do, Padilla urges us to understand it as a rational response to the doors these young men see closed around them. Felix M. Padilla is a professor in the Department of Latin American and Puerto Rican Studies at Lehman College-CUNY.

Dead and Gone: Classic Crimes of North Carolina by Manly Wade Wellman

About the Book – Dead and Gone: Classic Crimes of North Carolina


Violent dealth is amazingly apt to remind us of vigorous life; these ten stories of classic North Carolina murders which occurred between 1808 and 1914 represent a much neglected part of the exciting history of the state. Victims include a Confederate general, a lovely orphan girl, a pathetic little boy, and a highly offensive political boss. The motives are the usual ones — gain, revenge, “elimination,” and jealousy. The plaintive history and untimely death of Naomi Wise — “poor ‘Omi” they called her in Randolph County over five generations ago — strikingly counterparts Dreiser’s “An American Tragedy”; Ida Bell Warren, the veritable Lady Macbeth of Forsyth County; the arsenic poisoner of old Fayetteville; the kidnapping of Kenneth Beasley near the site of the Lost Colony; the almost perfect crime, the murder of the hated Reconstruction Senator “Chicken” Stephens of Caswell County, which in spite of the efforts of Claude G. Bowers and others went unsolved for years; the mad jealousy of Frankie Silver of Burke County which ended with bitter justice at the end of the law’s noosed rope, the first woman hanged in the state — these and other lively stories of famous North Carolina murders make fascinating reading. The stories, told with authority and inviting informality, employ material from newspapers, court records, letters, family collections, and numerous works of local history. They evoke a feeling for a past time and place as well as for the untidy events themselves.

The Anatomy Murders: Being the True and Spectacular History of Edinburgh’s Notorious Burke and Hare and of the Man of Science Who Abetted T by Lisa Rosner

About the Book – The Anatomy Murders: Being the True and Spectacular History of Edinburgh’s Notorious Burke and Hare and of the Man of Science Who Abetted T


“Up the close and down the stair,
Up and down with Burke and Hare.
Burke’s the butcher, Hare’s the thief,
Knox the man who buys the beef.”
–anonymous children’s songOn Halloween night 1828, in the West Port district of Edinburgh, Scotland, a woman sometimes known as Madgy Docherty was last seen in the company of William Burke and William Hare. Days later, police discovered her remains in the surgery of the prominent anatomist Dr. Robert Knox. Docherty was the final victim of the most atrocious murder spree of the century, outflanking even Jack the Ripper’s. Together with their accomplices, Burke and Hare would be accused of killing sixteen people over the course of twelve months in order to sell the corpses as “subjects” for dissection. The ensuing criminal investigation into the “Anatomy Murders” raised troubling questions about the common practices by which medical men obtained cadavers, the lives of the poor in Edinburgh’s back alleys, and the ability of the police to protect the public from cold-blooded murder.Famous among Crime Stories, Crime Series, Crime Novels, True Crime aficionados, Burke and Hare were the first serial killers to capture media attention, yet “The Anatomy Murders” is the first book to situate their story against the social and cultural forces that were bringing early nineteenth-century Britain into modernity. In Lisa Rosner’s deft treatment, each of the murder victims, from the beautiful, doomed Mary Paterson to the unfortunate “Daft Jamie,” opens a window on a different aspect of this world in transition. Tapping into a wealth of unpublished materials, Rosner meticulously portrays the aspirations of doctors and anatomists, the makeshift existence of the so-called dangerous classes, the rudimentary police apparatus, and the half-fiction, half-journalism of the popular press.”The Anatomy Murders” resurrects a tale of murder and medicine in a city whose grand Georgian squares and crescents stood beside a maze of slums, a place in which a dead body was far more valuable than a living laborer.

About the Book – Never Leave Me: An Obsessive Husband, an Unfaithful Wife, a Brutal Murder


HE WAS A BRILLIANT PHARMACOLOGIST.
SHE WAS A FILIPPINO BEAUTY.
In a quiet community of million dollar homes and shiny SUVs, the Nyce family projected the very image of success. Dr. Jonathan Nyce, an asthma sufferer, had achieved medical breakthroughs that made him rich–and offered hope to countless people. Michelle’s beauty made her an object of desire. And adultery was her husband’s worst nightmare.
THEY LIVED THE AMERICAN DREAM…
Police found Michelle’s Land Cruiser floating in a frigid creak near the family home. When forensic investigators examined Michelle’s horribly battered body, they knew she had not died in the car. Or by accident.
–UNTIL IT CAME CRASHING TO AN END…
Soon, the truth began to emerge. Of a brilliant man whose beautiful wife had a lover she could not stay away from. Of a family–including three innocent children–pushed to the breaking point. And of one brutal moment, when a man finally ended his torment by horrifically murdering the woman he loved…

Defending Gary: Unraveling the Mind of the Green River Killer by Mark Prothero, Carlton Smith

About the Book – Defending Gary: Unraveling the Mind of the Green River Killer


Warning: Once You Pick Up This Book, You Won’t Be Able to Put It Down

“This can’t be the Green River Killer! He’s too ordinary! He’s too small. He’s too calm. He’s too polite! He can’t possibly have murdered forty-nine women. They can’t be serious! They must have screwed up! I didn’t realize then, but I was right. Gary Ridgway hadn’t killed forty-nine women. He’d killed even more than that.”

Praise for Defending Gary

“Prothero offers his perspective on what remains a troubling case. He knows as much as anyone about the ‘nasty, tricky little man’ . . .” –Associated Press

” . . . both sober and titillating.” –The Seattle Times

“An extraordinary account of the most infamous serial killer in American history, ‘The Green River Killer.’ This is definitely not your average Crime Stories, Crime Series, Crime Novels, True Crime book. The book is a first-person account, well written, and with authors who provide interesting details of defending Gary Ridgway. The interrogation of Ridgway should be fascinating to law enforcement and anyone interested in serial killers. It certainly was to me. I highly recommend it.”
–Steve Egger, author, Killers Among Us: An Examination of Serial Murder and Its Investigation

“Defending Gary belongs on every bookshelf of every person interested in serial murder and death penalty cases from the defense perspective.”
–Ann Burgess, R.N., D.N.Sc., professor of psychiatric mental health nursing, Boston College, Connell School of Nursing, and coauthor, Sexual Homicides: Patterns and Motives

A Voice from the Chorus by Abram Tertz, Abram Terktls

About the Book – A Voice from the Chorus


Andrei Sinyavsky, who writes under the pseudonym of Abram Tertz, has been called by Saul Bellow “one of the most intelligent, most original, and most brilliant of contemporary writers”. A noted Russian dissident, he was incarcerated from 1966 to 1971 in Soviet forced labor camps for allowing some of his most satirical writings to be smuggled out of Russia and published in the West. This extraordinary literary work is Sinyavsky’s prison memoir. Based on letters to his wife, the diary includes Sinyavsky’s meditations on religion, sex, art, literature, and myths – the inner world to which he removed himself to escape from the degradation of prison. Interjected into these thoughts, however, are random snatches of prisoners’ conversations – a “chorus” of their tales, legends, songs, and curses that evoke the horror and spiritual desolation of their existence. The result is at once an oblique evocation of prison life, a celebration of literature and art, and a tribute to the endurance of the human spirit. Originally published in 1976, A Voice from the Chorus is now available with a new preface from the author.
