Organized Crime Queens:

The Secret World of Female Gangsters

by Jerry Bader

Genre: Biography

 

From the bizarre world of female Japanese motorcycle gangs to the historic

rise and fall of London’s Forty Elephants, the history of female

organized crime is both fascinating and strange. These are the

stories, both true and legendary of the female crime bosses that

broke the mould of feminine gentility. This is The Secret World of

Female Gangsters.

Most of society thinks of women as the gentler sex, the sex with more

compassion and empathy, not prone to violence. The truth is history,

and current events, are littered with stories of violent women who do

whatever it takes to get what they want; women who either revel in,

or accept as needed, whatever acts of torture, murder and depravity

that are required to achieve their goals. We’re not talking about

mundane psychopaths that kill their children and their husbands; or

homicidal maniacs that kill randomly without purpose, other than for

some sexual or psychological gratification. We’re talking about

female organized crime bosses, leaders of highly structured, often

successful criminal organizations.

Most everyone knows about the high profile male mobsters; people like

Lucky Luciano, Myer Lansky, Bugsy Segal, Arnold Rothstein, and Al

Capone: men who became legends, rightly or wrongly, due to the

public’s insatiable appetite for literature, movies, and television

stories based on their lives. But what about their female

counterparts, they definitely existed and still exist. Their stories

are both fascinating and cautionary. Their histories provide an

alternative perspective on the equality of the sexes; everything has

a price. We are talking about smart, capable, talented, ruthless

women who under other circumstances might have become leaders in

either business or politics; women who demanded respect, loyalty and

a big payday; or else.

What’s Your Poison?:

How Cocktails Got Their Names

by Jerry Bader

 

Why do we call mixed alcohol drinks “cocktails”? How do they get

their exotic names: names like the Singapore Sling, Screw Driver, the

Alamagoozlum, the Angel’s Kiss, the Hanky Panky, the Harvey

Wallbanger, Sex On The Beach, the Monkey Gland, the Brass Monkey, the

Margarita, the Japalac, the Lion’s Tail, and many, many more? Who

makes up these names, where are they invented, why, and how do you

make them? These questions will be answered in “What’s Your

Poison?” by exploring the incidents, people, and places that

prompted the creation of these exotic concoctions.

Beating the System

by Jerry Bader

 

It’s been said that gambling is a tax on the dumb; that may be overly

harsh, but the fact is, most gambling venues are designed to

guarantee you lose. It doesn’t matter if it’s horseracing,

lotteries, casinos, or the annual state fair. As soon as you plunk

down your dollar you’re a loser. Those milk bottles at the bottom

of the pyramid you’re trying to knock down are filled with lead,

and that basketball net that looks so close you can’t miss, is

actually oval not round, and barely big enough for a ball to pass

through. 

Most people like to take a chance every once in a while; maybe they’ll

get lucky. It’s a kick, a lark: an afternoon’s entertainment.

They know when to walk away… others don’t… some can’t. For

them it’s a drug, a search for an unattainable high. Deep down they

don’t even want to win. It’s sad. It’s pathetic is what it is.

You see these sorry souls at the track, at the casinos, or anywhere

there’s a game of chance. They’ll bet on horses, dogs, camels’…

even killer roosters. It’s nuts I know, but their addicts, they’ll

bet on people, and that’s the worst bet of all. Gambling is for

suckers; that’s why gamblers don’t gamble, they fix the game, and

even then, it doesn’t always work.

Horse racing is advertised as the sport of kings. Sure, if that’s what

you want to believe. I was a jockey, it was my job, but I made my

living as a fixer. You want to know what really goes on behind the

scenes. You want to know what horse racing is really all about. Then

come a little closer, cause I got a story for you.

Leave the Pieces Behindby Shirley Anne Edwards



Genre: YA Romance




Bree Apollo is an average fifteen-year-old girl: she loves chocolate, baking cupcakes, and her neighbor, the hunky and all around popular seventeen-year-old Foster Quinn. Except Foster is clueless about her feelings for him, instead treating her like a kid sister and begging for her homemade desserts. As a fellow chocolate lover, he should be Bree’s for the taking, if it werent for his oh-so-perfect

girlfriend.

After she overhears Foster making fun of her to his friends, she’s devastated. And not even chocolate can take away the pain. She intends to wallow in grief for a boy that was never hers to begin with, but Austen, her eccentric new neighbor has other ideas.

The strange boy down the street always wears a black fedora, walks barefoot, and focuses all his energy on building a treehouse in his backyard. For some reason, he’s elected Bree to help him. At first, she turns him down because he acts too awkward and takes everything she says literally. But after learning of his autism, she decides to help with his construction (forgiving him for not being a chocolate fan), even though she doesn’t know a think about power tools.

As Bree and Austen grow closer, Foster notices Bree no longer worships the ground he walks on. He wants her to go back to that doting version of Bree, but Austen has become more important to her than

she’s ready to admit.

Austen may just be the one to help her move on from Foster.

Like two pieces of a puzzle, they fit together perfectly.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

Synopsis

From the moment I met him, I knew he was trouble.

He was reckless, cocky, and everything I shouldn’t want.

I had a life all figured out, and Tucker Moore was not a part of the plan.

But somehow I slipped.

One moment I had it all under control.

The next I was spiraling around him, begging him for whatever he would give me.

But as quickly as I fell for him, it all crumbled around us.

Because everything I thought I knew was far from the truth.

There was only one way to fix what we had done.

So I turned my world Bottoms Up.

In a world of honor and obligation, falling in love can be a dangerous game. Captain Richard Granville has returned to London after serving the Crown in perilous missions fighting Napoleon’s army.

When he learns she is betrothed to his father, the conniving and dangerous Earl of Litchfield, shadows of the past descend upon Richard, bringing along memories of a tortuous childhood and his failure to protect the person he had loved most.

Jane Dawson would pay any price to renew her family’s happiness, but is the cost of marrying Lord Litchfield too high? A woman of virtue and honor, she cannot break a promise once given, especially when doing so would ruin those she seeks to protect. But can she ignore the connection she feels to the wild soldier who understands both her duty and her heart?

Follow the men of the Granville family in this suspenseful Regency romance series as they discover that their family legacy is much darker than they realized, and that the future holds treasures they can only grasp by surrendering the past.

Stories Untold

Stories Untold

by Leslie Wolfe

Genre: Thriller, Suspense

 

A GRIPPING, SUSPENSEFUL THRILLER

 Can a psychologist, still grieving the loss of her husband, save a

traumatized war veteran who is planning his own death? Stories


Untold explores the devastation of loss, the struggle to find meaning in life, and

the enduring power of love that transcends boundaries between past

and future.

They’re both strong and fearless, determined, relentless. 

He’s a decorated war veteran and he wants to die. 

She’s a prominent psychologist and she won’t give up on him.

When a suicidal client seeks her help, Dr. Angela Blackwell cannot

turn him away, despite the fact that he isn’t seeking the kind of

help she normally provides her clients. The man, who won’t fully

identify himself, wants the distinguished psychologist to stand

witness after his planned death in six months’ time, ensuring his

wife will not be charged as an accessory or be hindered from

collecting the death benefit he carefully provisioned for her. He

calls himself DJ and won’t willingly share anything about his past.

As Dr. Blackwell is struggling to reconstruct her own life after the

loss of her husband, she recognizes his unusual request as a

subconscious cry for help and embarks on a relentless effort to guide

the reluctant stranger in uncovering the trauma that has permanently

altered the course of his existence. Playing a deck of cards stacked

high against her and rushing against time, she has no other option

but to intervene, pushing the ethical boundaries of the doctor-client

relationship and refusing to give up.

An astonishing, vibrant story of human strength and frailty, of love

lost and love found, the Stories Untold saga

will captivate as few stories ever do, with unexpected twists and

turns, leaving a lasting memory ingrained into the essence of the

reader’s being.
