On the night of April 7, 1990, newlyweds Nancy and Richard Langert were brutally shot in the basement of their suburban Chicago home. There were no leads. Nothing was stolen. The only clue was an illegible message Nancy left behind, written in her own blood. It was a crime that shocked the community and baffled the FBI and seven local police departments. They explored every prospect -- from IRA assassinations to Mafia hit. But it was a tough Illinois policewoman who would track down the killer, exposing a horror that was shockingly close to home. Veteran Chicago journalists Gera-Lind Kolarik and Wayne Klatt present a chilling investigation into this true story of murder, compulsion and tragedy.

In August 2014 Limerick man Jason Corbett was murdered by his wife, Molly Martens, and her father, ex-FBI agent Tom Martens, in the bedroom of their luxury North Carolina home. He had been savagely beaten to death with a baseball bat and brick while his children slept nearby. For his sister, Tracey Corbett-Lynch, and the rest of his family in Ireland it was just the beginning of the nightmare that would involve a custody battle for his orphaned children, an online hate campaign by Molly Martens and, ultimately, the gripping trial that would lead to her conviction, alongside her father, for his murder. My Brother Jason is the story of how this seemingly all-American girl from a picture-perfect family targeted the widowed Jason Corbett, becoming nanny to his children in a desperate bid to create the family and security she craved, thus setting in motion a series of events that would lead to Jason’s brutal killing by the woman he had once loved. Here, for the first time, Tracey Corbett-Lynch tells her family’s side of the story in a book that contains shocking revelations about Molly Marten’s history of strange behaviour and the lengths she was willing to go to in order to get custody of Jason’s children. With full access to Jason’s letters, emails, keepsakes and photographs, it is the story of how an ordinary, loving family was torn apart by the brutal murder of their beloved brother.

At just forty-one years old, Dr. Autumn Klein, a neurologist specializing in seizure disorders in pregnant women, had already been named chief of women's neurology at Pittsburgh's largest health system. More than just successful in her field, Dr. Klein was beloved - by her patients, colleagues, family, and friends. She collapsed suddenly on April 17, 2013, writhing in agony on her kitchen floor, and died three days later. The police said her husband, Dr. Robert Ferrante, twenty-three years Klein's senior, killed her through cyanide poisoning. Though Ferrante left a clear trail of circumstantial evidence, Klein's death from cyanide might have been overlooked if not for the investigators who were able to use Ferrante's computer, statements from the staff at his lab, and his own seemingly odd actions at the hospital during his wife's treatment to piece together what appeared to be a long-term plan to end his wife's life. In Death by Cyanide, Paula Reed Ward, reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, describes the murder investigation and the trial in this sensational case, taking us from the poisoning and the medical staff's heroic measures to save Klein's life to the investigation of Ferrante and the emotion and drama inside the courtroom.

How did a father with no criminal history come to be on trial for the brutal murder of his wife? It began with a phone call to Brisbane police on 20 April 2012. Allison, wife of real estate agent Gerard Baden-Clay, was missing. When investigating officers arrived at the family home, in one of the city's wealthiest suburbs, a neatly dressed Gerard was about to send the couple's three daughters off to school. Scratches on his face were shaving cuts, he told them. Police weren't so sure and opened one of Australia's most high-profile investigations. Ten days after Gerard reported Allison's disappearance, the body of the former beauty queen was discovered on a creek bank 14 kilometres from home. The Murder of Allison Baden-Clay is written by the investigative journalist who covered the case from the start. It weaves together exclusive interviews and police and court records to explain how an upstanding family man with no criminal history received a life sentence for murder. It's a story of love, lust, image, ambition and marriage. It's also a story about everyday choices and their consequences.

The tragic murder of Nancy Cooper gripped the Raleigh / Durham region of North Carolina. Nancy, a beautiful housewife and mother, was strangled to death in her upscale neighborhood in Cary, North Carolina in 2008. Her husband, Brad Cooper, was immediately suspected in what appeared to be a rush to judgment by local law enforcement in order to appease a nervous community. Brad was later arrested and then convicted of Nancy's murder. For many, the question remains, did they get the right person? Did the evidence convict Brad of murder or did he merely fit the narrative that the husband did it, which provided a quick solution to an unsolved murder? The murder conviction was overturned by the Court of Appeals, which called into question many of the assumptions regarding what happened to Nancy. "Isolated Incident" unravels many of the overlooked and ignored details of this very troubling case.

In the nonfiction tradition of John Berendt ("Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil") and Erik Larson ("The Devil in the White City"), New York Times bestselling author Douglas Preston presents a gripping account of crime and punishment in the lush hills surrounding Florence, Italy. In 2000, Douglas Preston fulfilled a dream to move his family to Italy. Then he discovered that the olive grove in front of their 14th century farmhouse had been the scene of the most infamous double-murders in Italian history, committed by a serial killer known as the Monster of Florence. Preston, intrigued, meets Italian investigative journalist Mario Spezi to learn more. This is the true story of their search for--and identification of--the man they believe committed the crimes, and their chilling interview with him. And then, in a strange twist of fate, Preston and Spezi themselves become targets of the police investigation. Preston has his phone tapped, is interrogated, and told to leave the country. Spezi fares worse: he is thrown into Italy's grim Capanne prison, accused of being the Monster of Florence himself. Like one of Preston's thrillers, The Monster Of Florence, tells a remarkable and harrowing story involving murder, mutilation, and suicide-and at the center of it, Preston and Spezi, caught in a bizarre prosecutorial vendetta.
