BOOK EXCERPT:

Before Las Vegas, there was Phenix City, Alabama--the original sin city. Once the sprawling capital of the Muscogee Indian Empire, the region took a sinister turn when a holy war engulfed the southern territories in 1812, leading to the murder of the infamous Chief William McIntosh. Later, atrocities continued at Fort Mitchell, the killing grounds for early Georgia politicians who fought to the death over rival politics and bitter feuds. By the 1950s, Phenix City was home to the "Dixie Mafia," and crime and corruption ruled over the little riverfront city. Take a walk with author Faith Serafin as she travels through the darkest recesses of Phenix City's past.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Over eight bloody months in the mid-1970s, a serial rapist and murderer terrorized Columbus, Georgia, killing seven affluent, elderly white women by strangling them in their beds. In 1986, eight years after the last murder, an African American, Carlton Gary, was convicted for these crimes and sentenced to death. Though to this day many in the city doubt his guilt, he remains on death row. Award-winning reporter David Rose has followed this case for a decade, in an investigation that led him to, among other places, The Big Eddy Club—an all-white, private, members-only club in Columbus, frequented by the town’s most prominent judges and lawyers . . . as well as most of the seven murdered women. In this setting, Rose brings to light the city’s bloodstained history of racism, lynching, and unsolved, politically motivated murder. Framed by the tale of two lynchings—one illegally carried out at the start of the last century, and the other carried out with legal due process at the end of it, The Big Eddy Club is a gripping, revealing drama, full of evocatively drawn characters, insidious institutions, and the extraordinary connections that bind past and present. The book is also a compelling, accessible, and timely exploration of race and criminal justice, not only in the context of the South, but in the whole of the United States, as it addresses the widespread corruption of due process as a tool of racial oppression.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A landmark in historical research, tying the Mafia and Cuba to the assassination of JFK—updated to reveal the role of Cuban Commander Juan Almeida. Recent revelations by the U.S. government point to Cuba’s former number three official—Commander Juan Almeida—as secretly working with President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 to overthrow Fidel Castro. This updated edition of Ultimate Sacrifice tells the full story for the first time—complete with new photos and documents. The authors obtained the story from almost two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, starting in 1990 with JFK’s Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Their accounts are supported by thousands of newly released files at the National Archives. A “palace coup,” set for December 1, 1963, was to be backed up by U.S. forces “invited” in by Commander Almeida, then Chief of the Cuban Army. However, three Mafia bosses being targeted by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy used several CIA assets to infiltrate the secret plot and murder JFK. The new edition explains why Almeida was not a double agent, why Fidel suspected Almeida’s ally Che Guevara, and what Fidel did in 1990 when he finally found out about Almeida’s work for JFK. “How well do the authors make their case? With a relentless accumulation of detail, a very thorough knowledge of every political and forensic detail and the broad perspective of historians rather than assassination theorists.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “At last, the mysteries surrounding JFK’s death are fully explained by the startling revelations in this book.” —William W. Turner, former FBI agent and author of Deadly Secrets
