The Most Famous True Crime Story You Never Heard About!

On the night of Thanksgiving, 1934, the son of a prominent Tulsa doctor was shot to death in his car in the wealthiest neighborhood of the oil-rich city. Two days later, the son of one of the most powerful men in the state walked into the sheriff’s office with his lawyer and surrendered.

The killer’s name, and who his father was, would shock the entire nation and make news around the world.

In a convoluted story, the mentally unstable genius claimed he killed in self-defense and to protect wealthy debutante Virginia Wilcoxâ??the object of his unrequited love. But prosecutors claimed their star prisoner was the actual mastermind of a diabolical plot in which he would emerge as the hero, win Virginia’s heart, and gain acceptance into the Wilcox family by her mega-rich father.

Tulsa’s high-society murder scandalized the Oil Capitol of the World when the investigation churned up unsubstantiated reports of rich kids wildly out of control. Looking out over their Christian, conservative city, adults imagined sex-mad teens driving dangerously over their streets to get to hole-in-the-wall gambling joints and breast-bouncing dance parties where they would plan big crimesâ??all while high on marijuana and drunk on 3.2 beer. A tornado of rumors and gossip tore through town, stirring up mass hysteria and igniting a moral crusade to save the souls of Tulsa’s youth. When a key witness was found dead in his car under similar circumstances, it only confirmed their worst fears.

In a notable year for famous criminals, this case from the Oklahoma heartland received nationwide coverage each step of the way. This true story is not a “whodunit,” but rather, a “will he get away with it?” The answer to that question is still up for debate after the killer did something only the bravest of men would ever do.



Love, Red

by Gwynyth Rutledge

How many years I’d loved him: over 30

How old he was when we met: barely 23

How many miles I’d flown to see him: almost 5000

Depths of my love: limitless

Finding each other again: priceless

Is this the end of the road or just the beginning?

Our story began in New Orleans in the early 80’s. Rune was a blond-haired, blue-eyed Norwegian in his early 20’s with the face and smile like no other I had ever seen. He had the chiseled features of a Nordic god and a body that was lean, but not so perfect that he seemed unattainable. Yet there was something mysterious about him – just like his name.

Babushka and Me: Memories from a Soviet Childhood

by Jana Bakunina

Babushka and Me is a collection of short stories from my Soviet childhood. I grew up in a country in which bananas were like gold dust; circus was endorsed by the Communist Party as â??the people’s art form’; sport was practised as a discipline, rather than as a recreational activity. Soviet children learned to read by absorbing stories about â??Grandpa Lenin’ and joined the ranks of the young â??pioneers’, who proudly wore their red neckerchiefs to school. Babushka and Me is a journey back in time and a tribute to the unconditional love of my grandmother.



An art of graceful dying

by Piotr Kniecicki

It happened on the first of April 2001 – April fool’s day if you will. Exactly on that day the author had a severe stroke which brought him to the brink of death and left him almost entirely paralysed, completely dumb, partially blind and deaf; wrecking his world-view completely.

Surviving a stroke and waking up in a different reality, he discovers a creative fire which makes him write daily for hours, using state-of-the-art technology which allows him to translate his minute body movement into literature and poetry.

His exceptional story begins at the moment Piotr feels something catastrophic is happening to him. He writes about his journey between life and death as the medical crew fights for him. He recalls facts, dreams and feelings. He tells stories from his past as well as writes about his present life and how this “different reality” made him a different and better man.

It is a real and moving story of life! A story about the twist of fate, the fragility of our body, the power of the human mind and spirit. Full of surprises and jolts. It proves that one should never lose faith, for it is never too late to change for the better and move forward despite the difficulties.

An extraordinary book written by a person suffering from locked-in syndrome. Surprisingly witty and charming too!

Have you ever wondered how a man who has been in a coma feels, and how it feels to come back?

Would you like to know what a man imprisoned in his paralysed body feels?

This is the first time you can read such a story brought to you by someone who went through it himself.

Stroke: ‘I had the impression I was treading on thin ice, frozen on the surface of a very shallow puddle. ‘The ice’ was breaking with a quiet, delicate crunch underneath my shoes, painting a net of disjointed cracks radiating outwards from my location.’

Coma: ‘I’m alone, standing naked in a huge, dark cave, dimly lit by a yellowish, bland light from oil lamps fixed on the cave’s walls at various heights. In the middle of the cave, I could see a very shallow river, a dozen meters wide with crystal clear waters!’

Life: “I felt a tiny bit worried by how fast it was all happening, well – it doesn’t look too good now, does it?

I’m almost blind, dumb, what next???

I was about to find out…”

The World’s Most Significant and Influential People (Volume One): Vignettes of the Famous & Infamous

by Joe Zang

This non-fiction book (Volumes One & Two) will cover dozens of people who had massive influence on thousands of other people, including those who lived centuries before Jesus Christ and ending chronologically in the present day. The research done on those who lived prior to the 17th century will, of course, be limited by the few resources from that era. Needless to say, the longer ago the person lived will mean proportionately less resources. Nonetheless, this book (“The World’s Most Significant and Influential People”) will historically relate vignettes of those people of ancient days on the basis of the faith of their many followers. Conversely, as these vignettes progress to those people of the present day, the basis of supposedly proven facts will be followed. Just remember, not all those who had a massive influence on their peers were doing so for the good of all. This book will include the famous as well as the infamous influential people.With regards to the people chosen from the biblical era, those condensed stories are not meant to replace Bible study; however, you may find that those particular vignettes offer a refreshing approach. While Volume One will cover Abraham through Johann Sebastian Bach, Volume Two is scheduled to cover Benjamin Franklin through Barack Hussein Obama II. The many biographies offered as vignettes with unbiased points of view will make both Volumes One & Two of this book invaluable as reference books for students of all ages; especially in the very handy eBook format!
