Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Hazel is on her way to visit the Smith family, whom she has been caring for for the past five months. She is fearless, and knows these woods well. She is not afraid of the dark, and is ready for whatever may come. #2 On July 11, 1908, the heatwave that had been plaguing the entire state of New York reached Sand Lake, a small town in the middle of Rensselaer County. It was oppressively hot. People slept in parks or on rooftops to escape the heat, and two men tried to kill their wives with carving knives. #3 Averill Park was the last stop on the Troy and New England Railway trolley line, which was the only means of public transportation into the village. It was a popular destination for summer visitors from Troy and Albany, who came to enjoy the town’s recreational attractions. #4 On July 10, a teenager named Lawrence Gruber saw a body in Teal’s Pond near the Taborton woods. It was a harrowing sight, but mesmerizing: they couldn’t look away.

A brilliantly researched reinvestigation into the nearly forgotten century-old murder that inspired one of the most seductive mysteries in the history of television and film. In 1908, Hazel Drew was found floating in a pond in Sand Lake, New York, beaten to death. The unsolved murder inspired rumors, speculation, ghost stories, and, almost a century later, the phenomenon of Twin Peaks. Who killed Hazel Drew? Like Laura Palmer, she was a paradox of personalities--a young, beautiful puzzle with secrets. Perhaps the even trickier question is, Who was Hazel Drew? Seeking escape from her poor country roots, Hazel found work as a domestic servant in the notoriously corrupt metropolis of Troy, New York. Fate derailed her plans for reinvention. But the investigation that followed her brutal murder was fraught with red herrings, wild-goose chases, and unreliable witnesses. Did officials really follow the leads? Or did they bury them to protect the guilty? The likely answer is revealed in an absorbing true mystery that's ingeniously reconstructed and every bit as haunting as the cultural obsession it inspired.

"A World of Demons: The Villains of Doctor Who”“One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel”—Jean-Antoninette (“Reinette”) Poisson, aka Madame de Pompadour, “The Girl in the Fireplace”What a world of demons Doctor Who has presented us with over the past seven decades: from Daleks and Cybermen to Weeping Angels and the Silence, the greatest villains of the Who-niverse have achieved an iconic status all their own, cementing themselves in the minds of millions of viewers (why else would Parker Brothers have devised a version of Monopoly after them?). If, as the Seventh Doctor once said, "You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies,” the Doctor is great indeed, rescuing the universe time and again from some of the most formidable and terrifying villains in science fiction history. Now, for the first time, an entire anthology of essays is dedicated to deconstructing this gallery of blackguards. Who are the greatest Who villains of all time? Why are they so frightening? And—apologies to Shakespeare—what do they tell us about the villainy of our own fears?Featuring essays by Joseph Dougherty (executive producer, Pretty Little Liars; producer, thirtysomething), Steven Ashby, Anton Binder, Sarah Corey, Ken Deep, Jan Fennick, Hannah Friedman, Mark Givens, Nancy Hutchins, Jennie Jarvis, Don Klees, Chris Kocher, Robin Koman, Charles Martin, Michael Robinson, Steve Sautter, and Shane Thomas.Edited by David Bushman (Conversations with Mark Frost) and Barnaby Edwards (president, Doctor Who New York)

Stranger things do tend to happen in Schenectady--once a booming metropolis nicknamed the "City That Lights and Hauls the World" thanks to the dominating presence of General Electric and the American Locomotive Company, though those days are ancient history. GE has nearly abandoned the city, and ALCO closed up shot over fifty years ago. Hence, the title of this book: Forget It, Jake, It's Schenectady: A Police Department Under Siege, and the Man Who Led It, a nod to the bleak conclusion of the classic film Chinatown, one of cinema's most devastating expressions of abject resignation and defeat. A chance meeting between onetime Schenectady Police Chief Gregory Kaczmarek and author David Bushman in a Lyft car that Kaczmarek was driving was the genesis of this book, originally intended to track the rise and fall of a veteran cop with what appear to be two defining traits--an almost inhuman capacity for perseverance and a truly remarkable ability to attract notoriety and criticism. However, as the author's research--including interviews with over two dozen people who lived through the events depicted in these pages.

Even cloistered monks can burn out from stress. So when Brother Bartholomew repeatedly snaps at a novice, his superiors at Faith Abbey on Cape Cod send him to Bermuda on a spiritual retreat. The island is particularly peaceful at summer's end, but beyond the veneer of pretty pink architecture, happy tourists on scooters, and yachting culture, there is a darker side. The inter-island drug trade is thriving-and the young, willing participants in the business are being murdered. Father Bartholomew, along with his childhood friend and occasional sleuthing partner Police Chief Dan Burke-who is on the island for a rare vacation-team up with local authorities to investigate the crimes.
