Blood on the Altar

Blood on the Altar by Tobias Jones

One Sunday morning in 1993 a 16-year-old girl named Eliza Claps goes missing from a church in the centre of Potenza, Italy. Shortly before her disappearance, Elisa had met Danilo Restivo, a strange local boy with a fetish for cutting women's hair on the back of buses. Elisa's family are convinced that Resitvo is responsible for their daughter's disappearance, but he is protected by local big-wigs: by his Sicilian father, by a doctor with links to organised crime, by a priest who had vices of his own. Years went by and Elisa's family could find only false leads.

Blood Relation

Blood Relation by Eric Konigsberg

A New Yorker writer investigates the life and career of his hit-man great-uncle and the impact on his family.

Growing up in a household as generic as Midwestern Jews get, author Eric Konigsberg always wished there was something different about his family, something exotic and mysterious, even shocking. When he was sent off to boarding school, he learned from an ex-cop security guard that there was: His great-uncle Harold, in prison in upstate New York, was a legendary Mafia enforcer, suspected by the FBI of upwards of twenty murders.

Konigsberg had uncovered a shameful, long-hidden family secret....

Blood Secrets: Chronicles of a Crime Scene Reconstructionist

Blood Secrets: Chronicles of a Crime Scene Reconstructionist by Rod Englert & Kathy Passero

Blood Secrets reveals how forensic experts read the story of a murder told in the traces of blood left behind, providing crucial evidence that has helped convict criminals who might have otherwise walked free.

When Rod Englert began his career in law enforcement, virtually no police force in the world knew how to correctly examine blood spatter. He spent years studying and testing how blood behaves, pioneering a vital new tool that is now a part of any criminal investigation. In Blood Secrets he demonstrates how detectives and forensic experts use blood-spatter analysis to solve real cases.

Blood Sisters

Blood Sisters by Roelien Schutte & Eileen de Jager & Ilse SalzwedelEileen de Jager and Roelien Schutte's occupation is somewhat unusual, to say the least. These two sisters clean up the biohazardous waste left behind after people have died - washing, scrubbing, sanitising and incinerating. It is a macabre, grisly job that few people want to do and even fewer can physically and emotionally endure. Eileen and Roelien have been doing this work for almost four years in South Africa. This is their story.

Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and His Two-Legged Partner

Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and His Two-Legged Partner by Adam David Russ

He was born in rural Missouri, and it was immediately clear that he was different from the rest. He caught his first criminal when he was just two years old. By his sixth birthday, he had located burglars, rapists, drug dealers, missing children, and murderers—including Utah's most wanted criminal. Known to friends as JJ, to law enforcement as Michael Serio's partner, and by captured criminals as "that damned dog," Jessie Jr. was an exceptionally talented bloodhound, baying like a sea lion that had swallowed a fog horn. Before JJ, few police departments in the West used bloodhounds, and none...

When it was over, more than 150 townsmen were dead and most of the settlement burned to the ground.
