Blood Brotherhoods: A History of Italy's Three Mafias

Blood Brotherhoods: A History of Italy's Three Mafias by John DickieMAFIA. CAMORRA. 'NDRANGHETA.

The Sicilian mafia, known as Cosa Nostra, is far from being Italy's only dangerous criminal fraternity. The country hosts two other major mafias: the camorra from Naples; and, from the poor and isolated region of Calabria, the mysterious 'ndrangheta, which has now risen to become the most powerful mob group active today.

Since they emerged, the mafias have all corrupted Italy's institutions, drastically curtailed the life-chances of its citizens, evaded justice, and set up their own self-interested meddling as an alternative to the courts. Yet each of these brotherhoods...

But Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups have long followed a diversification strategy that has rendered the crackdown by the U.S. and other governments almost useless. Blood from Stones is the first book to uncover, through on-the-ground reporting, the interlocking web of commodities, underground transfer systems, charities, and sympathetic bankers that support terrorist activities throughout the world.

As a foreign correspondent and investigative reporter for The Washington...

Blood in the Streets: Racism, Riots and Murders in the Heartland of America

Blood in the Streets: Racism, Riots and Murders in the Heartland of America by Daniel L. Baker & Nalls GwenIn the midst of a nation suffering through riots and racial stife in the 1965-1975 era, which was one of the most violent periods in urban American history, a racist sniper roamed the streets of Dayton, Ohio.

Blood Justice

Blood Justice by Tom Henderson

In 1991, flight attendant Nancy Ludwig checked in to an airport hotel near Detroit. The next morning she was found gagged, raped, and tortured-her throat slit with such rage that she was nearly decapitated. Her husband Arthur never gave up hope that the future would bring enough evidence to close the case. But it was the past that held the clue.

In 1985, fifty-five-year old Margarette Eby, a music professor, met the same grisly death at her cottage in Flint, Michigan. The case went cold-until six years later when the victim's son Mark came upon the story of Nancy Ludwig's slaying. With nothing...

His Evil Was Unmeasured. . .

Convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal murder of Lisa Nichols, an Alabama mother of two children, Jones shocked authorities with the story of his life--and his claims of snuffing out over a dozen victims in thirteen years. But was he telling the truth, or was he simply taunting his captors?

One Sunday morning in 1993 a 16-year-old girl named Eliza Claps goes missing from a church in the centre of Potenza, Italy.

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.
