  • - A True Story of Money and a Flawed Investigation
    af Tom Aswell
    255,95 kr.

    Dr. Robert Chastant was a successful orthodontist in New Iberia, Louisiana. He and wife Laurie raised Peruvian Paso show horses on a farm just south of their 4,700-square-foot colonial style home. By all outward appearances, he was happy and successful. But cracks had begun appearing in his third marriage and his practice was feeling the effects of a dramatic downturn in South Louisiana's petroleum-reliant economy, leaving him encumbered with crushing debt. Then, on the morning of December 13, 2010, he was brutally murdered by his farm hand, an illegal Mexican immigrant named Ismael Viera Tobar. Viera was apprehended and confessed within a matter of hours. But then there was an unexpected twist. He told authorities that Laurie, twenty-five years younger than Dr. Chastant, had paid Viera a thousand dollars to kill her husband. His story seemed to gain traction with discrepancies in her timeline of events, the existence of a prenuptial agreement, a budding extra-marital affair, the unexplained discovery of a pair of checks for cash totaling exactly one thousand dollars, missing evidence, and life insurance policies totaling more than a million dollars all combined to create a possible motive and to cast suspicion on the young widow.Could the fact that her father was - and remains - a deputy sheriff in a nearby parish have influenced a less-than-thorough investigation of her possible part in the murder? Could the fact that her father was also a retired Louisiana State Trooper who had worked with the Iberia Parish sheriff when they both were state troopers - serving in the same region - have led authorities in a different direction and allowed her to escape closer scrutiny?Murder on the Teche: A True Story of Money and a Flawed Investigation, Tom Aswell's fifth book, examines the relationship between Dr. Chastant and his wife, between her and her husband's family, and follows the frustrating investigation - whether by design or through institutional incompetence - of the sheriff's department. Aswell's research is supported up by thousands of pages of sheriff's department investigative records and court documents, some of which are reproduced for this book.Murder on the Teche examines the inability - or unwillingness - of the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office to conduct a thorough investigation into the simplest crime, much less a brutal murder. It will cause you to question the competence level and the professionalism of your own local law enforcement agencies as never before and to ask yourself if Iberia Parish represents the norm or is it an unfortunate anomaly?

    124,95 kr.

    1979 ging Simmons nach 20 Dienstjahren als Master Sergeant der Air Force in den Ruhestand. Die Instabilität, die auf seine Militärzeit folgte, verstärkte sein Verlangen nach Kontrolle über seine Familie. Mithilfe von Einschüchterung, Demütigung und Gewalt versuchte er, die Oberhand über alle seine Familienmitglieder zu gewinnen, mit einer Ausnahme: Bei seiner Lieblingstochter Shelia, die er zu einer inzestuösen Beziehung zwang und mit der er schließlich ein Kind zeugte, zeigte er sich von einer sanfteren Seite. Sein Bedürfnis nach absoluter Kontrolle führte zur Isolation innerhalb seiner Familie und zu seiner Unfähigkeit, eine Arbeitsstelle zu behalten. Sein Frust wuchs ins Unermessliche, als Sheila das Elternhaus verließ und einen anderen Mann heiratete. Als seine Pläne zunichtegemacht wurden und sein Einfluss nachließ, unterstützte Simmons plötzlich den Wunsch seiner Familie, Weihnachten mit einem großen Fest zu feiern. Die Bühne war für ein herzliches Wiedersehen bereitet, doch er hatte ganz andere Pläne. Dem Bösen gehorchen ist ein erschreckender Bericht über Ronald Gene Simmons und eines der verstörendsten Massaker an einer Familie in den Vereinigten Staaten. Ryan Greens fesselnde Erzählung lässt den Leser in das reale Grauen eintauchen, das die Opfer erlebt haben, und bietet alle Elemente eines klassischen Thrillers.

  • - A Short Account of Christine Blasey Ford
    af Jammie Watson
    94,95 kr.

    With those words, Christine Blasey Ford put herself into the blinding lights of history. Her wrenching testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2018, accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, captivated the nation and sparked a cultural reckoning around gender, power, and partisanship. In this intimate biography, Ford finally shares her full, unvarnished story-from her eerily premonitive childhood steeped in the elite enclaves of Washington, D.C., to the prestigious academic career that disguised unhealed trauma. Readers go behind the closed doors to witness the fateful chain of events that compelled the soft-spoken suburban mom to risk everything by taking the stand. Blasey Ford doesn't just narrate a personal saga; she contextualizes her experience within the nationwide reckoning it precipitated. Her wrenching account catalyzed aspects of the #MeToo movement, stirring anguished debates over believing survivors, identity politics, and the sanctity of institutions like the Supreme Court. The biography reveals never-before-shared insights into the white-hot political firestorm, ideological clashes with Congress, and cruelties endured by her family. More than just a record of events, The Accidental Truth-Teller lays bare the hidden emotional toll and complex legacy of Ford's truth-telling. With vulnerability and wisdom, she explores the alienation of her new life, aspirations cut short, and the lasting impacts on American justice and democracy. Yet this is ultimately an inspirational story of moral courage and defiant humanity. Ford shares the personal resources-her unshakable decency, professional acumen, and devotion to civic duty-that gave her the fortitude to sacrifice everything by speaking out at the cost of her privacy and safety. At its core, this extraordinary chronicle enshrines how one woman's resonant act of resilience continues to reverberate through society's roiling battles over accountability, trauma, and justice in the post-#MeToo era. The Accidental Truthteller is a powerful generational testimony about finding one's voice and refusing to be silenced or shamed, no matter the odds.
