    Investigation documents and photographs related to the 1927 murder of Albert Snyder by his wife Ruth and her lover Judd Gray have been mostly destroyed because of their antiquity. Mackeller offers his telling of the ordeal, as gleaned from trial transcripts, periodicals, interviews, city records, letters, a detective log, and earlier books on the topic. The murder inspired the book-turned-noir film titled Double Indemnity, and was later interpreted in the film Body Heat. This book reads like a novel and employs artistic license in fleshing out the moments that were not logged, as in the first chapter describing the crime, where dialogue of unclear source is abundant. The second chapter details the trial, wherein the two accused invent indictments of the other. This chapter also portrays the popular and media frenzy that accompanied the trial. The two were eventually sentenced to be executed at Sing Sing prison, and the final chapter describes their last days and the public's response. The appendix offers brief biographies of personalities in the book and discusses questions of motive that may remain unanswered. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," President Barack Obama said in March 2012 about the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin four weeks earlier. In so saying, Obama gave the White House imprimatur to a politically irresistible campaign, one that both stoked the grievances of his racially sensitive base and energized his party's gun-control advocates. That the shooting took place in Florida, the most highly contested state in that year's presidential election, made its politicization all the more inevitable. From the beginning, the major media worked overtime to convict shooter George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion. To promote their grudge against guns and their skewed view of race in America, the media ignored or denied the truth even after the truth had become obvious to those who followed the story closely. In another time and place, the media might have succeeded, but in the age of social media, their carefully crafted narrative has been thoroughly picked apart. If I Had A Son tells the story of a blogging collective called the Conservative Treehouse that has done much of the picking. Indeed, the clever research work of these unpaid "Treepers," most of them female, may well be the defense's best weapon. If I Had A Son is a thrill-packed David and Goliath story, the ending of which is still not known.
  • 'White Girl Bleed A Lot': The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It

    By Colin Flaherty

    'White Girl Bleed a Lot' was written for the deniers - reporters and public officials who, despite overwhelming evidence, deny that black mob violence has reached epidemic levels in America. But massive video proof means denial is no longer an option as many of these cases are now on YouTube. And for the first time, readers will be able to scan QR codes to actually witness the racial violence on video as they read about it in the book. Thus, readers will finally be able to experience the huge difference between what big city newspapers say is happening and what the videos prove is really happening. To be released by WND Books October 15, the new edition of 'White Girl Bleed a Lot': The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It documents over 500 cases of black mob violence in more than 100 cities around the country. Writing in National Review, Thomas Sowell said: "Reading Colin Flaherty's book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities." The new edition of 'White Girl Bleed a Lot' documents - with 500 footnotes - black mob violence in the bigger cities, where some might expect it: Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, St. Louis. But also in other cities where many are surprised at the intense and frequent racial violence - places like Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Charlotte, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Las Vegas, Kansas City. And even smaller cities like Peoria, Springfield, Greensboro, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Champaign, Utica, Rochester, Syracuse, Long Island, Wilmington, Dover, New Haven, Meriden, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Virginia Beach, Columbia, Birmingham, Knoxville, Memphis, Miami Beach, Norfolk, Columbus, Madison and many more. Readers will learn about "Beat Whitey Night" at a Midwest state fair. And how a Chicago police chief blamed the violence on Sarah Palin and the Pilgrims. And how Oprah Winfrey gave $1 million to a Philadelphia charter school, only to see its students on video assaulting a white person shortly thereafter. And how gays and Asians and women are particular targets. And how, despite the growing violence, one congressman and former mayor said his city should not crack down on it because it would "just make a lot of black kids angry." Readers will also learn how some people are fighting back. Unlike most books about race, 'White Girl Bleed a Lot' is not about causes. Or solutions. Or apologies. Or guilt. Or political correctness. There are no stereotypes or generalizations. No racism or rancor. Just facts. It has been featured in major national news sites including CNN, Salon, WND, Orange County Register, and more than 100 talk radio stations around the country. Anthony Cumia, of the popular "Opie and Anthony Show," calls 'White Girl Bleed a Lot' a "great book," as does national talk show host Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson.

    It's 1985 and 29-year-old family man Anthony Papa is the owner of a failing radio repair business. Offered $500 to deliver an envelope for an acquaintance, the desperate Papa agrees, unaware of the cocaine inside or the stingoperation that awaits. Though it's his first criminal offense, New York drugs laws dictate a mandatory 15-year-to-life prison term. When his self-portrait is exhibited at the Whitney Museum in 1994, a burst of public sympathy catches the attention of the governor leading to Papa's eventual release just three years short of the full sentence. A story featuring a 16-page signature with color photos and reproductions, this is a social critique of American drug laws.
