  • Outlaw

    How I Became Britain's Most Wanted Man

    Ray Bishop

    Ebury Press | 10 Ιουλίου 2014

    Ray Bishop was on the run, skulking in a dealer's house in north London, when an image of his face flashed up on the TV, accompanied by a public warning. The assembled company were aghast, and Ray felt sick at what he saw. How had he become Britain's most wanted man? Outlaw is Ray's brutal, shocking, adrenaline-soaked autobiography. The narrative starts on a council estate in South East London, where he and his friends were regularly brutalised by the police. He got involved in petty crime, and was despatched to various notoriously violent youth-detention centres, all of which served to criminalise him, and others like him, much further. He graduated with flying colours to a career in London's underworld as an armed robber, a drug smuggler and a people trafficker, developing a serious addiction to cocaine and heroin along the way. Ray eventually wore himself out, and enrolled in a rigorous rehabilitation programme which provided him with a path to redemption. In 2010 he realised his childhood dream of becoming British Middleweight Boxing Champion. This is a truly inspirational turnaround, and a riveting life story.
  • Murder in Mississippi

    John Safran

    Little, Brown Book Group | 21 Αυγούστου 2014

    In 2010, deep in Mississippi, a notorious white supremacist named Richard Barrett was brutally murdered by a young black man, Vincent McGee. At first the murder was accepted as a twist on old Deep South race crimes. But new revelations began to come to light: was it really a dispute over money? Or, more intriguingly, over sex? John Safran, a young white Jewish Australian journalist, had spent an uneasy few days interviewing Barrett the previous year. Learning of Barrett's death, Safran realises that this could be the story of a lifetime and, flying back to Mississippi, he immerses himself in the world of clashing white separatists, black lawyers, police investigators, oddball neighbours, stunned families and the killer himself. The more he learns the less simple the crime appears to be. In the end, he discovers just how profoundly and indelibly complex the truth about someone's life - and death - can be. Murder in Mississippi is a brilliantly innovative true-crime story - haunting, hilarious and unsettling, Safran paints an engrossing, revealing portrait of race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South.
  • White Shotgun

    Attilio Bolzoni

    Pan Macmillan | 17 Ιουλίου 2014

    Lupara bianca ('White Shotgun') -- an Italian term that refers to a Mafia-style killing, in which no trace of the victim can be found. For thirty years, prize-winning Sicilian journalist Attilio Bolzoni has reported on the shadowy activities of Cosa Nostra. Now, for the first time, he has collected together a powerful anthology of rare interviews, court proceedings and transcripts of phone taps that together capture the essence of this most hidden of secret societies. From the 'traditional' Mafia of the early 20th Century to the 'Maxi' show-trials of the 1980s and beyond, White Shotgun is both a history of modern Sicilian crime, and a book about the twisted logic and language of Cosa Nostra. From the most humble of foot soldiers to famous pentiti ('grasses') and top-level Bosses, this is a portrait of the men who live by a code of silence -- in their own words.

    Rosie Lewis

Taught to believe that Westerners should not be trusted, when Zadie is initially delivered into the experienced hands of foster carer Rosie she is understandably suspicious of the family around her. Through Rosie's support and understanding, gradually Zadie begins to settle into her new surroundings, but loyalty to her relatives prevents her from confessing the horrifying truth about her troubled past. When the shocking truth finally emerges, Rosie and her family can hardly believe that Zadie had managed to keep the secret to herself for so long.
