Murderous Minds: Stories of Real Life Murderers that Escaped the Headlines (Volume 4) by Ryan Becker (Sea Vision Publishing)

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by RyanBecker (publisher): Hi everyone,

This is the fourth book in my true crime series called "Murderous Minds" I am giving away 100 free copies for those of you who love true crime stories. It is a short book so it will be a quick horrific experience. Warning: graphic content

Grab a copy, if this is your cup of tea.

Thank you,
Ryan

Description: Tales of murder and darkness have a way of both terrifying and enthralling us.

The line between man and monster is never as definitive or sturdy as we’d like to think. When seemingly ordinary people cross the line between normal behavior and violent acts, it raises the question: what were they thinking? Can your own mind be the key to becoming a monster?

What we think, or more importantly what we believe, can push the boundaries of normal into darkness in unimaginable ways. Whether the beliefs come from misinterpreting organized religion, holding too tightly to olf folklore, or letting your imagination run wild, the danger is evident for those unable to keep their minds in check. Murderous Minds Volume 4 follows six chilling stories of faith and imagination gone too far. It’s a dangerous reality that has reappeared decade after decade with deadly results for those unfortunate enough to wander too close to the flame. The killers of this anthology have the charisma to convince others of impossible things, and the insanity to hold those beliefs themselves. These belief systems come at a high price, especially for the victims of belief-motivated crimes.

Serial Killers True Crime Box Set: 6 Notorious True Crime Murder Stories by Jack Rosewood

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by kekmaw (publisher): Please notice that this is a review copy for the e-book

Description: In the very depths of the human soul there is a darkness. It is an entity which most of us may never get to know; for others, however, this darkness grows for years until it takes hold of them and permeates every inch of their body. This darkness is evil incarnate, and it is in the hearts and minds of some of the most dangerous and despicable human beings to have walked this same earth we live in today.

Sometimes it can manifest as the desire to dominate the weak and the less fortunate; in others, it becomes an uncontrollable need for violence and death; another group turns this evil into pure hatred for those that they do not agree with, transforming dislike into the desire to spill blood.

Regardless of which group we are talking about, there are many of these individuals which soon evolve into the most deadly kind of monster: the serial killer.

In the following volumes, you shall discover the stories of six murderers so tainted by darkness that their horrific accounts still bring fear to men and women of our present day:

- Edmund Kemper, the Co-Ed Killer, whose victims were mostly young, defenseless students;

- The Briley Brothers, three siblings who were as mentally unstable as they were bloodthirsty;

- John Christie, who lived a double life while killing cruelly and indiscriminately;

- John Haigh or The Acid Bath Murderer, whose methods of disposing of victims made him infamous, and finally;

- Joseph Paul Franklin, whose racist hatred fueled him into a deadly “cleansing of the world”, according to his own claims.

So open the pages of the volumes in this Serial Killers True Crime Box Set now, and begin exploring these tales that have been forged with the essence of hell itself – you may soon realize just how deep evil can plant its seeds within a human being…

Description: Named one of only two 5-star finalists for the Indie Reader Discovery Awards in the humor category, Goliath Gets Up is one of the funniest books you will ever read.

TIGHTROPE by Sue Batchelor

This book is an eBook, not a physical book.

Recipient is asked to provide a review in exchange for this book.

Offered by Mylibrevs (publisher): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Description: I was a single parent for many years and along the way discovered that the most important thing in life to me is being a mum. Having battled low self-esteem throughout most of my life, I found I could express myself through writing poetry. I have always enjoyed writing and now feel ready to share some of that with others. This book covers my life experiences, thoughts and feelings, in poem form.
It deals with topics such as self-esteem, death and marriage, with a bit of humour added in too. I strongly believe our childhood shapes us and our whole future. I am passionate about good parenting. It can be difficult at times, but we have to try and get it right. It's a balance. Like walking a tightrope. I hope you will enjoy my book, as there is something in here for everyone.
