The Killing Game

by Gary Webb

Gary Webb had an inborn journalistic tendency to track down corruption and expose it. For over thirty-four years, he wrote stories about corruption from county, state, and federal levels. He had an almost magnetic effect to these kinds of stories, and it was almost as if the stories found him. It was his gift, and, ultimately, it was his downfall.He was best known for his story Dark Alliance, written for the San Jose Mercury News in 1996. In it Webb linked the CIA to the crack-cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles during the Iran Contra scandal. His only published book, Dark Alliance is still a classic of contemporary journalism. But his life consisted of much more than this one story, and The Killing Game is a collection of his best investigative stories from his beginning at the Kentucky Post to his end at the Sacramento News & Review. It includes Webb's series at the Kentucky Post on organized crime in the coal industry, at the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Ohio State's negligent medical board, and on the US military's funding of first-person shooter video games. The Killing Game is a dedication to his life's work outside of Dark Alliance, and it's an exhibition of investigative journalism in its truest form.

Killing Game (CSI)

by Max Allan Collins

The machinations of a new supervisor may have altered Gil Grissom's team of skillful CSIs, as Catherine Willows, Nick Stokes, and Warrick Brown are reassigned from the graveyard shift to the swing shift.

During the course of their separate investigations, the teams must unite again to investigate two distinct murders -- atrocities that are oddly aligned as they share much of the same collective evidence. Despite the different M. O. s, the CSIs are uncovering two wildly imperfect crimes that could possibly add up to an almost perfect one. . .

A Killing In The Hills (A Bell Elkins Mystery, #1)

by Julia Keller

In A Killing in the Hills, a powerful, intricate debut from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Keller, a mother and a daughter try to do right by a town and each other before it's too late. What's happening in Acker's Gap, West Virginia? Three elderly men are gunned down over their coffee at a local diner, and seemingly half the town is there to witness the act. Still, it happened so fast, and no one seems to have gotten a good look at the shooter. Was it random? Was it connected to the spate of drug violence plaguing poor areas of the country just like Acker's Gap? Or were Dean Streeter, Shorty McClurg, and Lee Rader targeted somehow? One of the witnesses to the brutal incident was Carla Elkins, teenaged daughter of Bell Elkins, the prosecuting attorney for Raythune County, WV. Carla was shocked and horrified by what she saw, but after a few days, she begins to recover enough to believe that she might be uniquely placed to help her mother do her job. After all, what better way to repair their fragile, damaged relationship? But could Carla also end up doing more harm than good--in fact, putting her own life in danger?

A Killing in the Market (Hardy Boys Casefiles #18)

by Franklin W. Dixon

From the back of the book: A deadly romance Frank and Joe investigate the disappearance of Cyril Bayard, a shady investment counselor who's been dating the boys' aunt Gertrude and to whom she entrusted her life savings. His clerk has just been found murdered, and it looks like the bullet was meant for Bayard. The boys visit his house, but he's gone and the place is trashed. When Aunt Gertrude is fingered as the chief suspect, the Hardys have to act fast. They head for Manhattan to call on Bayard's business associates. But before they know it, they're drawn into a treacherous chase through a world they know nothing about-the dark underside of Wall Street. =============== From inside the book: STAIRWELL STANDOFF Frank and Joe took the cement stairs of the high- rise office building two at a time. The chunk-chunk- chunk of their footsteps was answered by heavier footsteps above them. "There's only one way to do this," said Joe, hiking himself up onto the banister. "Go for it!" Frank replied. "I'll hop on after you!" With a loud whoop, the Hardy brothers slid down to the first floor. When they got to the bottom, Joe hopped off and rammed his shoulder against the metal exit door. Whomp! The sound of the impact echoed through the stairwell. "Uh-oh," Frank muttered. In the dim light, they could read a large metal sign that was screwed into the door. Its red letters said No Re-entry on This Floor. Go to 2. Another sound-that of clomping feet-grew loud behind them. They were trapped.

The Killing Kind

by M. William Phelps

Sprawled in a culvert just off the gravel road like an abandoned doll, she wore only toe socks, a sweatshirt, and a necklace. She was not the killer's first victim. Nor would she be his last. The lush, green hills that mark the border of North and South Carolina are home to a close-knit community. When the savaged remains of high-spirited Heather Catterton and sweet-natured Randi Saldana were found and a local man was linked to their murders, residents were forced to face an evil in their midst. The killer was one of their own . . . Danny Hembree was far from being an upright, law-abiding citizen. But he was part of the fabric of the local scene, devoted to his mother and sister. No one saw him as a remorseless killer who preyed on those who trusted him. When questioned by police, Hembree didn't just play cat-and-mouse and then confess. He bragged. Taunted. Laughed about his merciless deeds. In The Killing Kind acclaimed, award-winning investigative crime journalist M. William Phelps delves into the background of Hembree's victims, bringing readers into their lives in intimate detail. With exclusive information from detectives and prosecutors, Phelps reconstructs the chilling clues that led to Hembree's arrest, and the media sensation surrounding his trial, mistrial, and ultimate conviction.

William Phelps draws on interviews and correspondence with the serial killer himself, bringing readers into the mind of a murderer - and into the heart of a real-life story of bloodshed, tears, and the long road to justice.

Killing King

by Larry Hancock Stuart Wexler

At approximately 6 pm Eastern Standard Time on April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr., one of America's great moral leaders was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. The largest manhunt in FBI history eventually resulted in the capture of James Earl Ray, a career criminal who had escaped from prison in April 1967. Ray entered a guilty plea and confessed his guilt before a judge, but immediately following his conviction, he recanted his confession and insisted on his innocence until his death in 1998.For decades, Americans debated issues of the crime, with a new congressional investigation in the 1970s concluding that Ray was guilty but part of a larger conspiracy. Using new data, interviews, and data-mining techniques, we are closer than ever to an accurate accounting of how Dr. King died and, most importantly, why he was killed.

Killing Monsters

by Gerard Jones

Children choose their heroes more carefully than we think. From Pokémon to the rapper Eminem, pop-culture icons are not simply commercial pied pipers who practice mass hypnosis on our youth.

Drawing on a wealth of true stories, many gleaned from the fascinating workshops he conducts, and basing his claims on extensive research, including interviews with psychologists and educators, Gerard Jones explains why validating our children's fantasies teaches them to trust their own emotions and build stronger selves.

The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity

by Dan E. Moldea

On June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was fatally shot in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles; his death the following day stunned a nation still recovering from John F. Kennedy's assassination five years earlier. Officials insisted, however, that this was not "another Dallas" - this was an open-and-shut case; Sirhan Sirhan acted alone. Yet behind the official version of the Robert Kennedy assassination lies a story full of shadows, controversies, conflicting testimony, and missing evidence. Investigative journalist Dan Moldea embarked upon a crusade to discover the truth, and what he found suggested a botched investigation, and perhaps something worse. Was there strong evidence, as certain police officers and the FBI alleged, that too many bullets were fired to have come from Sirhan's gun?

Even worse, the cutthroats have a personal vendetta against the rangers for killing one of their own.

Killing Rage: Ending Racism

by Bell Hooks

One of our country's premier cultural and social critics, Bell Hooks has always maintained that eradicating racism and eradicating sexism must go hand in hand. These twenty-three essays are written from a black and feminist perspective, and they tackle the bitter difficulties of racism by envisioning a world without it. They address a spectrum of topics having to do with race and racism in the United States: psychological trauma among African Americans; friendship between black women and white women; anti-Semitism and racism; and internalized racism in movies and the media. And in the title essay, Hooks writes about the "Killing Rage" -- the fierce anger of black people stung by repeated instances of everyday racism -- finding in that rage a healing source of love and strength and a catalyst for positive change.
