In de man zit nog een jongen by Elsbeth Etty
Requirements: ePUB Reader | 8.7 MB
Overview: Willem Wilmink (1936-2003) is een van de meest geliefde dichters van Nederland. Zijn eenvoudige maar treffende gedichten en liedjes, veelal geschreven voor legendarische tv-programma’s als De Stratemakeropzeeshow, J.J. de Bom en De film van Ome Willem, spreken iedereen aan. "De oude school’, "Deze vuist op deze vuist’ en "Ben Ali Libi’ behoren tot de canon van de Nederlandse literatuur. Hetzelfde geldt voor Wilminks hertalingen van Middeleeuwse klassiekers. Hij was een groot kenner van poëzie uit alle tijdvakken en in al haar verschijningsvormen.

Zijn werk is doortrokken van heimwee naar een veilige kinderwereld die nooit heeft bestaan. Naar eigen zeggen is Wilmink altijd elf jaar gebleven, wat aanvankelijk zijn loopbaan en privéleven ernstig frustreerde, maar tegelijkertijd zijn poëtische kapitaal bleek. Met humor en zelfspot maakte hij zijn lange tijd door miskenning en afwijzing getekende leven leefbaar.

Voor In de man zit nog een jongen sprak neerlandicus en journalist Elsbeth Etty met tientallen tijdgenoten en intimi van Wilmink. Het resultaat is een intiem en niets verhullend portret.

Requirements: ePUB Reader | 421 KB
Overview: Tot de dood ons scheidt is het schokkende verhaal van een moeder die strijdt voor haar kinderen en niet opgeeft. Ze is jarenlang geterroriseerd door haar ex-man en op een geraffineerde wijze (gaslighting) geestelijk mishandeld. Het ouderlijk gezag dreigt haar nu ontnomen te worden. Een ongelijke strijd, zonder enig recht op juridische bijstand en in de steek gelaten door jeugdzorg.

‘Je bent mijn vrouw. Als je bij me weggaat, dan zorg ik ervoor dat je de kinderen nooit meer ziet. Ik ontvoer ze naar Mexico. Ik zeg iedereen dat je gestoord bent. Ik ga het huis nooit uit. Ik maak je financieel kapot en ga daar mee door tot je zelfmoord pleegt. Je weet wat je te doen staat.” Hij zegt het fluisterend in mijn oor en streelt ondertussen mijn gezicht.

Dit boek is op last van de rechter uit de handel gehaald. "onnodig grievend en te kenbaar beschreven" aldus de rechtbank.

De paarden van Hitler by Arthur Brand
Requirements: ePUB Reader | 3.6 MB
Overview: De paarden van Hitler is een ongelooflijk spannend, waargebeurd verhaal over geheime diensten, oud-nazi’s, neonazi’s en heel veel geld

Tijdens een bezoek aan zijn oude leermeester krijgt kunstdetective Arthur Brand een foto te zien van de paarden van Hitler, twee metershoge beelden die Hitler ooit voor de Rijkskanselarij had laten plaatsen. Ze worden te koop aangeboden. Maar die wereldberoemde beelden waren toch in de Slag om Berlijn vernietigd? Dit moeten vervalsingen zijn.

Brand ontdekt echter dat de paarden geen vervalsingen zijn. Hij gaat als een ware detective op onderzoek uit en probeert te achterhalen waar de beelden de afgelopen zeventig jaar bleven, wie ze in handen had en wie ze nu voor veel geld op de zwarte markt wil verkopen. Tijdens zijn spannende zoektocht ontmoet hij kopstukken van criminele organisaties, oud-nazi’s, oud-KGB’ers, neonazi’s, louche figuren en Oost-Duitse ex-politie – ze blijken er allemaal mee te maken te hebben. Uiteindelijk weet Brand, samen met de Duitse politie, de beelden te confisqueren. Hij haalt er het wereldnieuws mee.

The Most Evil Secret Societies in History by Shelley Klein
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.8 MB
Overview: Secret organizations have existed in one form or another throughout history, but in the modern world, where television, the Internet and instant communications worldwide have exposed so many hitherto impenetrable networks, the mysterious nature of sects that set themselves apart from normal society holds a special fascination. How have such secret institutes affected our world in the past? What influence do they have on our everyday lives today? Why, indeed, do they exist at all?
Genre: Non-Fiction > Biographies & Memoirs

-Many of the secret societies functioning today are of a benign, even charitable nature but some, with roots that may stretch back many centuries, seek the power to fulfill ambitions that could change our way of life for ever. Others have strong and widespread links to organized crime around the world. Their policies and plans that revolve around hatred, violence, murder, political intrigue, sex and magic rituals make their activities profoundly disturbing, and their corruption, barbarism and brutality have led to some of the most heinous crimes ever committed.

-The Most Evil Secret Societies In History examines fifteen of the most notorious groups the world has ever seen, from the Hashishim killers in the Middle East at the time of the Crusades, who gave their name to the word ‘assassin’, to the Solar Temple international suicide sect of the 1990s. One secret society which has gained a unique notoriety in recent years is the Illuminati. The name has been adopted by a number of coteries over the centuries, the last of which is thought to have died out in the eighteenth century, although some conspiracy theorists continue to blame the Illuminati for having influenced almost every major world event, from the French Revolution to the 9/11 atrocities.

-While the continued existence of the Illuminati remains a subject of debate, other secret associations, such as the American Ku Klux Klan, continue to cast their shadow over civilization, pursuing an agenda that runs contrary to the beliefs of the majority of the population and proving that, even in the twenty-first century, clandestine organizations are still at work in our midst.

The First Ward III: Murderers, Scoundrels and Ragamuffins: Unsolved Murders Haunt Buffalo’s Inept Police Force by Richard Sullivan
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 595 KB
Overview: And So On It Continues… In The First Ward

At the beginning of the 20th Century unspeakable murders plague the city of Buffalo and expose the police department’s inability to solve any of them, causing much frustration for Detective Jim Sullivan and his life-long friend, Police Chief Michael Regan. Dysfunction within the department attracts nationwide ridicule and causes the citizenry concern about their own safety. Jim, who was present at the site of the assassination of President William McKinley at the Pan American Exposition, is determined to prevent any such repeat when President William Howard Taft comes to town.

Detective Sullivan’s younger brother, Alderman John P. Sullivan continues to be an absentee father to his ten children even as one of his young sons becomes the victim of a predator. The Alderman joins forces with “frienemy” Fingy Conners to rid the city of an honest political candidate who’s campaign promise is to take them both down. Meanwhile the Alderman directs the most wildly successful bash in the city’s history.

The Sullivan brothers’ mother Mary is recalled as the victim of a vicious character assassination at the hands of Buffalo Evening News proprietor Edward H. Butler.

Both tragedy and near-tragedy visit the Alderman’s home, leaving wife Annie reeling while bringing her closer to similarly-afflicted sister-in-law Hannah. Hannah Sullivan meanwhile makes friends with a fiercely opinionated woman with a dark past who helps her see the light.

Cousin John L. Sullivan, former heavyweight champion of the world, entertains as guest of honor at a Mutual Rowing Club celebration while earthy W.C. Fields impresses the Sullivan brothers’ sons. John L. reflects on the failures in his life despite his worldwide success.

Fingy Conners rises to greater heights financially and politically than ever before while boldly protecting his criminal friends and bulldozing over anyone who threatens to get in his way. Labor contractor Conners juggles his 6,000 employees even as he signs on as William Randolph Hearst’s campaign manager during Hearst’s run for Governor of New York and is rewarded handsomely. Fingy establishes a charitable fund for a hero’s widow and their three children, widely touted on the front page of his Buffalo Courier newspaper. After urging Western New Yorkers to contribute generously he subsequently hordes all the money, leaving the penniless family in the lurch. An astonishing revelation pertaining to the true cause of death of Fingy’s son and successor threatens to launch a “war in the streets.”

Finishing Machine: Road Rage Murder or Self Defense? A Trained Killer’s Fight for Justice by Mike Arnold & Emilia Gardner
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 8.78 MB
Overview: The true story of UFC fighter veteran Gerald “The Finishing Machine” Strebendt, who in 2014 shot and killed an unarmed man after a minor traffic accident. Police called it road rage. Gerald’s attorneys called a press-conference, taking a unique step in a high-profile case in changing the narrative. Within days, self-defense became the key media issue and Gerald awaited a charging decision by the Oregon prosecutor.

Charge: Murder with a Firearm, and thus began the next stage of Gerald’s life. He had served the Marine Corps proudly as a Marine sniper. He had done two tours of duty in Afghanistan as a Blackwater mercenary. He had fought mixed martial arts professionally and had a successful MMA-training gym. However, the next stage of his life was a fight for justice and a fight for his life. Was it going to be a murder conviction and a life in prison? Many in the community wanted that, claiming that a trained killer like Gerald Strebendt couldn’t possibly need to shoot an unarmed 55-year-old man. But the truth was much more nuanced.

“Finishing Machine” is a book about choices. Gerald made choices in his life to fight and compete. Some of these instincts carried on in his post-Blackwater life when he was accused of years of prior road rage incidents that the Oregon prosecutor wanted to introduce as evidence at his trial. His attorneys, Mike Arnold and Emilia Gardner, set out to disprove these allegations and get to the truth with science. Gerald also made a choice that night to shoot rather than to run or fight.

Written from the perspective of Gerald’s lead counsel Mike Arnold, the authors’ book takes the reader on a journey of the goings-on in a defense attorney’s mind. Does he doubt his client’s story? How does he deal with surprising evidence? Can he stay the impartial advocate? Does the judge’s gag order turn the case into a secret tribunal at Gerald’s detriment or does it allow him access to the justice the law requires?

Does science say it was a minor traffic accident or a dramatic crash caused by a crazy man? And if so, who was the crazy man, Gerald or his victim?

Live the tension of the attorneys and the accused yourself by stepping into the mind of a criminal defense attorney and into the mind of the Finishing Machine.

A Forger’s Progress: The Life of Francis Greenway by Alasdair McGregor
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 7 MB
Overview: Talented, well trained and confident in his own abilities and worth, Australia’s first government architect was also hot-headed and tactless. Sentenced to death for forgery, then granted a last-minute reprieve, Francis Greenway was transported to New South Wales in 1814. Within a single eventful decade, Greenway’s and Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s transformation of Sydney from a ramshackle convict garrison into an elegant city was well under way with buildings like the Hyde Park Barracks, St James’ Church, Supreme Court and Windsor courthouse. Award-winning author Alasdair McGregor – in the first biography of Greenway since 1953 – scrutinises the life and work of a man beset by contradictions and demons. He profiles Greenway’s landmark buildings, his meteoric rise and his complex and fraught relationship with Governor Macquarie, along with his thwarted ambitions and self-destruction. All played out in a fledgling colony in the throes of change from far-flung gaol to a society of free settlers.
