Death In The Air

BOOK EXCERPT:

A real-life thriller in the vein of The Devil in the White City, Kate Winkler Dawson's debut Death in the Air is a gripping, historical narrative of a serial killer, an environmental disaster, and an iconic city struggling to regain its footing. London was still recovering from the devastation of World War II when another disaster hit: for five long days in December 1952, a killer smog held the city firmly in its grip and refused to let go. Day became night, mass transit ground to a halt, criminals roamed the streets, and some 12,000 people died from the poisonous air. But in the chaotic aftermath, another killer was stalking the streets, using the fog as a cloak for his crimes. All across London, women were going missing--poor women, forgotten women. Their disappearances caused little alarm, but each of them had one thing in common: they had the misfortune of meeting a quiet, unassuming man, John Reginald Christie, who invited them back to his decrepit Notting Hill flat during that dark winter. They never left. The eventual arrest of the "Beast of Rillington Place" caused a media frenzy: were there more bodies buried in the walls, under the floorboards, in the back garden of this house of horrors? Was it the fog that had caused Christie to suddenly snap? And what role had he played in the notorious double murder that had happened in that same apartment building not three years before--a murder for which another, possibly innocent, man was sent to the gallows? The Great Smog of 1952 remains the deadliest air pollution disaster in world history, and John Reginald Christie is still one of the most unfathomable serial killers of modern times. Journalist Kate Winkler Dawson braids these strands together into a taut, compulsively readable true crime thriller about a man who changed the fate of the death penalty in the UK, and an environmental catastrophe with implications that still echo today.

BOOK EXCERPT:

When a fugitive flees the country, U.S. Marshal Alexa Chase is summoned to criss-cross Europe to find him and bring him back. On a wild cat-and-mouse chase, Alexa must venture outside of her comfort zone to stop this killer before he strikes again. “This is an excellent book… When you start reading, be sure you don’t have to wake up early!” —Reader review for The Killing Game The Killing Fog (An Alexa Chase Suspense Thriller—Book 5) is book #5 in a new series by mystery and suspense author Kate Bold, which begins with THE KILLING GAME (Book #1). Alexa Chase, 34, a brilliant profiler in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, was too good at her job. Haunted by all the serial killers she caught, she left a stunning career behind to join the U.S. Marshals. As a Deputy Marshal, Alexa—fit, and as tough as she is brilliant—could immerse herself in a simple career of hunting down fugitives and bringing them to justice. But with her recent work a big success, the FBI and the Marshals have decided to make their joint-task force permanent. Alexa, reeling from her own traumatic past and her PTSD of hunting serial killers, has no choice: she will now have to work with an FBI partner she dislikes and hunt down serial killers whose jurisdiction intertwines with that of the U.S. Marshals. Alexa finds herself forced to confront the thing she dreads the most—entering a killer’s mind. Butting heads with local authorities and with a third partner, Alexa is out of her depth and up against a range of obstacles in a foreign country—all while a diabolical killer is gaining steam. In her toughest case yet, Alexa will need all the strength of her brilliant mind to discover where the killer is hiding—and to bring him to justice before he strikes again. Unless he finds her first. A page-turning and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured Deputy Marshal, the ALEXA CHASE series is a riveting mystery, packed with non-stop action, suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you flipping pages late into the night. Book #6—THE KILLING PLACE—is also available. “This book moved very fast and every page was exciting. Plenty of dialogue, you absolutely love the characters, and you were rooting for the good guy throughout the whole story… I look forward to reading the next in the series.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “Kate did an amazing job on this book and I was hooked from the first chapter!” —Reader review for The Killing Game “I really enjoyed this book. The characters were authentic, and I see the bad guys as something we hear about daily on the news... Looking forward to book 2.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “This was a really good book. The main characters were real, flawed and human. The story went along quickly and wasn't mired in too many unnecessary details. I really enjoyed it.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “Alexa Chase is headstrong, impatient, but most of all brave with a capital B. She never, repeat never, backs down until the bad guys are put where they belong. Clearly five stars!” —Reader review for The Killing Game “Captivating and riveting serial murder with a twist of the macabre… Very well done.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “WOW what a great read! Talk about a diabolical killer! Really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to reading others by this author as well.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “Page turner for sure. Great characters and relationships. I got into the middle of this story and couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to more from Kate Bold.” —Reader review for The Killing Game “Hard to put down.

Dispersing The Fog

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

In 1874, the first contingent of the North West Mounted Police headed out from Ontario, following the Dawson Trail to their new posts in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Over the next 133 years, the Mounties evolved from those 150 cavalry men to become a police force with almost 16,000 officers and almost 10,000 civilians with an annual budget of $4-billion. There is no police service in the world like it, and for good reason. Over time the NWMP became the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, an iconic police force with a mythical reputation. The reality, however, is that the Mounties rarely got their man and that their collective reputation was undeserved. For more than 35 years the RCMP has found itself mired in a seemingly unending litany of organizational, legal and political controversy, but the Mounties always managed to survive virtually unscathed. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, however, long had a plan to stop the Mounties in their tracks. After taking office in early 2006, the pieces of that plan began to fall into place, as Harper shrewdly began the process to deconstruct and reform of the RCMP, specifically, and the country in general. Did he do it for the right reasons or the wrong ones? Did he go far enough or not? Will Canada be the better for it? In Dispersing the Fog , Paul Palongo builds on the powerful and influential arguments made in his first two RCMP books, Above The Law and The Last Guardians , to show Canadians why they should be concerned about the RCMP, its mandate, its performance and its relationship to governments and politics. No other author knows the subject matter better than Palongo. Once a voice in the wilderness, many Canadians now have come to believe what he has to say. Dispersing the Fog is not just a book about the RCMP, but a story about the justice system in general and a wake-up call for any Canadian concerned about where the country seems to be headed. Itās thorough debunking of the many myths of the RCMP, which the federal and provincial governments have encouraged and nurtured for their own political purposes. It takes the reader on a step-by-step, virtually invisible, process which Stephen Harper and his allies from the former Alberta Reform Party have taken to make true their vision of Alberta, having the same rights and status in Confederation as Ontario and Quebec. It addresses the role played by politicians and the media, in general, who have collectively failed to recognize and address the very real and articulate concerns of Canadians from coast to coast who have long questioned the ability or willingness of the RCMP to carry out its duties. No one who cares about democracy can afford to ignore this book.
