Slaughter On A Shoestring
On October 29, 1997, hooker Andrea "Slick" Hendrix's, beaten, naked body was discovered in a roadside ditch near Stewartsville, Indiana. With no leads for police to follow, the case eventually went cold, but it wouldn't stay that way. In 2003, sadistic sexual predator Joseph W. Brown claimed to have strangled Hendrix with his favorite murder weapon: a shoelace from a woman's size-8 shoe.
Ginger Gasaway, 53, met Brown at a Gambler's Anonymous meeting. She didn't know that when she took up with him, she was gambling with her life. On August 30, 2000, Brown murdered Gasaway and scattered her body parts across three Indiana counties. For this grisly crime, he would be sentenced to life in prison without parole. But it wouldn't be his first time behind bars. . .
How Many More?
In 1977, Brown had been sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping and armed robbery. In 1995, he was released despite the fact that he'd beaten a fellow inmate nearly to death. Brown later confessed that during the next five years, he indulged in a seven-state rampage of torture and murder, his victims female hitchhikers and prostitutes. Now doing time in Wabash Valley Corrections Center, Brown maintains that he murdered no less than thirteen other women.

—Inside the mind of one of the nation’s most feared thrill
“Silent Rage” is the shocking true history of serial killer
Carroll Edward “Eddie” Cole. Raised by an abusive mother and weak father, Cole
accomplished his first murder before he was ten years old. He went on to murder
at least 14 women. Sexual attacks, necrophilia, and cannibalization peppered
Backed by 32 weeks of exclusive interviews with Cole and
years of exhaustive research, Michael Newton paints one of the most chilling
true portraits of the development of a sociopathic personality ever made
available to the public. Newton traces Cole’s gruesome career across four
decades, until Cole’s execution by the
state of Nevada.
They are law enforcement’s most elusive prey. More dangerous
than hitmen, gang assassins, and crowd snipers, the “recreational killer” is
almost impossible to capture. Choosing their victims at random, drifting from
town to town, their brutal crimes leave a smoking trail of bloodshed across the
nation—and many of them are never apprehended until they decide to turn
themselves in. This year, 3,500 “thrill killings” will go unsolved. Cole’s
story is a searing lesson in the horror of crimes like this—and the terrifying
inability of our society to prevent them.
In the Whitechapel neighborhood of London in 1888, five women were horribly mutilated and murdered by the infamous killer, Jack the Ripper. Though there were many suspects, the monster was never caught.
This recently discovered memoir from the 1920s introduces a new suspect: James Willoughby Carnac, a little-known figure who claims to have been the Ripper. Carnac describes the events and geography of Whitechapel in 1888 with chilling accuracy, including details of the murders that appear to have been unavailable to the public at the time. He presents a credible motive for becoming Jack, and, for the first time ever, a reason for ending the killing spree. Ultimately, you, the reader, must decide if this is simply one of the earliest imaginings of the case—and a groundbreaking literary addition to the Ripper canon—or if it is the genuine autobiography of Jack the Ripper himself.
