A series of far-flung incidents. Seemingly not connected
but which cumulated in one of the Second World War's
most diabolical events.
A nation's secrets, whilst laudable in the short term,
should within a reasonable passage of time be
aired for all to see. Secrets thus encapsulated
provide for wild speculation and ultimately
When will we ever learn?
Atlas D'four unwinds the facts behind the 'reluctant'
King, the schizophrenic Hollywood actor, the
misguided freedom-fighter and the less than
faithful Nazi Secret Service.
You couldn't make this up.

An anthology of murders committed in the most unlikely of places and people.
The Murder of Sadie Hartley

Their life seemed idyllic until Ian met Sarah Williams, a younger woman hellbent on winning Ian at all costs... even murder. Plotting the murder of her rival with her best friend, Sarah would commit one of the most horrific murders in the upscale village of Helmshore.
The Killer Doctor
Hagen was an oddity among murderers as the picture didn't fit. She was a highly successful doctor who landed a chief of staff position in a prestigious hospital.

President John F. Kennedy. Marilyn Monroe. A probing nonfiction short story that reconstructs an enchanting night in history by the New York Times bestselling author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer.
On the night of May 19, 1962, the marquee of the old Madison Square Garden boasted: "BEST THING TODAY... JOHN F. KENNEDY / 2ND BEST THING... MARILYN MONROE."
Few things illustrate the magnetism of the Kennedy era like Marilyn Monroe co-headlining the President's massive birthday fundraiser, and suggestively crooning "Happy Birthday." But only a privileged few know what happened months earlier, when the two icons spent a weekend at a private summit hosted by Bing Crosby, and later, after the New York extravaganza, at the top secret, invitation-only midnight affair at a millionaire's Manhattan town house.
For more than half a century, this exclusive, no-press-allowed after-party has been shrouded in rumor and myth. Lot 6191 in the 2010 auction of White House photographer ...

Dennis Fish is a reckless charlatan with no regard for the sensitivities of any other human being other than himself.
This book documenting his mangled life is so utterly ridiculous you'll wonder if the author is actually a genius or somebody who has hoodwinked us with a pile of excrement. Dennis' tale is so extraordinary, strutting hardmen like Tom Hardy have been literally turned to blancmange before they have even finished the first chapter.
If you are brave enough to tackle the book, remember to pay for it , as most authors on this site are absolutely frothing having spent hundreds of hours writing their masterpiece, some having edited it too, only for it to be mauled and criticized by a bunch of clever arsed muppets who: A: Certainly couldn't do any better themselves and B: Have the bare-faced effrontery to diss it after downloading it for bugger all.
So dear reader, once in full control of your faculties, please take the plunge because Dennis Fish IS Amazon's original, ...
