Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka: The Horrific True Story Behind Canada’s Ken and Barbie Killers (Real Crime By Real Killers Book 7)

by Ryan Becker

Abduction. Rape. Murder.
Multiple assaults. Three dead teenage girls.
A pair of criminals. But which one was the killer?

This graphic account of convicted killers, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, shows that in some relationships, neither party is the “better half.” Both halves of this Canadian couple add up to one evil story. A story too shocking to believe, but the truth, especially true crime, is all too often stranger and more gruesomely horrific than any mere work of fiction.

Weaving a tale of innocent victims who were terrorized, sexually assaulted and murdered, this true-crime thriller details the crimes and takes an in-depth look at the perpetrators. Criminal profilers have found when killers work in tandem; often they are designated as the “leader” and the “follower.” Readers are invited to draw their own conclusions as to which one of the deadly duo was the manipulator and who was being manipulated. Dubbed the “Ken and Barbie Killers” by the media, Paul and Karla’s pink dream house became a place of nightmares.

Get a copy today and discover the shocking confession that causes their world to fall apart like a house of cards and reveals that this “perfect couple” is in fact perfectly evil.

Screw The Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Pleasant, Middle-Class Gated Community in Delhi (Cities Book 1)

by Claire Berlinski

Is the Indian century ahead of us? Nick Booker-Soni thinks so. I met Nick at a dinner party in Paris. The other guests were tech experts, scientists, and investors, and all were gloomy about the West. Progress wasn’t progressing, they complained. The economy was permanently stalled. There were too many impediments to innovation. The Scientific and Industrial Revolutions had reached the end of the line. The West was doomed. But Nick, on the other hand, who lives in Delhi, was by far the most optimistic Westerner I’d met since 2008. It’s too bad the others weren’t listening to our small talk that evening, because if Nick’s right, India has the answer to their questions and the solution to all our problems. He and I spoke for a while at that open window overlooking the Seine. “Obviously,” he said, “India’s the key. But don’t take my word for it. Come see for yourself.” I did. This short book describes what I found.
