The Oshadangwa Murders by Damian O’Connor

This is a novel set in 1980 when the South African Defence Forces were engaged in a secret bush war in Angola and Namibia. Joshua Smith, an over-promoted police sergeant with an anti-Apartheid activist for a mother, is sent to investigate the battlefield murder of a wealthy white officer. There are three suspects, all unlikely, no forensic evidence, no witnesses and, as he is fully aware, no rule of law. Sucked into an investigation which has its roots in the politics of Apartheid at a point in time when Nelson Mandela was just emerging from obscurity, Smith is joined by an officer from Military Intelligence, Trudi Mostert. Together they dig into a mystery that goes all the way back to Smith’s childhood in the multi-racial District 6 of Cape Town, the vicious realities of small town apartheid in Krugersburg and Smith’s own complicity in the state of Apartheid.

Investigative True Crime Starter by Arthur Jay Harris: Cliffhanger first chapters from Flowers for Mrs. Luskin, Speed Kills, Until Proven Innocent, and The Unsolved Murder of Adam Walsh by Arthur Jay Harris

This Investigative True Crime Sampler by Arthur Jay Harris includes cliffhanger samples from his books Flowers for Mrs. Luskin, Speed Kills, Until Proven Innocent, and The Unsolved Murder of Adam Walsh.

FLOWERS FOR MRS. LUSKIN: The divorce was vicious, but at least it hadn’t turned deadly. Then came the flowers.
At the best house in the best neighborhood in Hollywood, Florida, Marie Luskin answered her front door and saw a deliveryman holding a floral arrangement. From behind the leaves and petals he pulled out a pistol and pointed it at her. At the time, she was embroiled in the biggest divorce in the county’s history.
But why didn’t the gunman shoot and kill her? According to Marie, he demanded all her money and then hit her with the gun. According to the prosecutor, he shot her. But the jury agreed on one thing: that Marie’s wealthy, estranged husband, Paul, was clearly behind a murder-for-hire. Then the truth came out.

SPEED KILLS: He built the fastest boats — for royalty, the rich, spies, smugglers, Feds and a former U.S. President. Then came six shots.
It was the era of cool shades and Miami Vice, and Don Aronow’s Cigarette boats were the symbol of the city’s sun-drenched decadence. But faster than his speed boats was Aronow himself — in races behind the throttle, in business deals and on the town with his collection of stunning women. And then, in broad daylight, someone in a dark Lincoln gunned him down.
Who had Don double-dealt? A dope smuggler? The Mafia? The husband or boyfriend of one of his many paramours? And after ten years of dogged work, did Miami police get it right — or were they dead wrong?

UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT: The prosecutor was no longer sure both murder defendants were guilty. So he asked his dad — the real-life Kojak.
A mother’s dying, gasping call to 911: “My husband! My baby!” In her secluded ranch house, she’d been stabbed with a kitchen knife. Her husband, infant and elderly father-in-law had all been shot in the head, point-blank.
For three years, police had two suspects under surveillance, then arrest. Both faced the death penalty. But prosecutor Brian Cavanagh began to doubt that the defendants were partners. So he consulted with his father, a retired NYPD cop whose reputation for savvy sleuthing had inspired the creation of one of the most beloved characters in television history. Now the question was: Could Dad help solve the case?

THE UNSOLVED MURDER OF ADAM WALSH: The medical examiner misidentified the body. The cops blamed the wrong suspect. What really happened to Adam Walsh?
In 1981, America was captivated — and horrified — by the kidnapping and reported murder of six-year-old Adam Walsh. Florida police ultimately identified the decapitated head of a found child as Adam, and implicated an out-of-town drifter as the murderer.
But something about the investigation was incomplete. And wrong. In this special Single Edition of his controversial two-book chronicle, journalist Arthur Jay Harris reveals that Walsh’s kidnapper was actually the notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, that the body found by police was misidentified, and that Adam Walsh is quite possibly — even probably — still alive.

Jack’s Back: Murder returns to Whitechapel (Jack Tyler Book 1) by Mark Romain

It’s been one hundred and eleven years since Jack the Ripper terrorised the gas lit streets of Victorian London, but now the grisly killings have started all over again. When the mutilated corpse of a local prostitute is discovered on a building site in Whitechapel during the early hours of Sunday 31st October 1999, it quickly becomes apparent to DCI Jack Tyler and his team of homicide detectives that someone has taken up the Ripper’s mantle and is seeking to emulate the terrible atrocities that gained his namesake such notoriety.‘Be afraid. This is only the start. Jack’s back…’The chilling message, left by the killer on a wall near the body, and written in the victim’s own blood, catapults the detectives into a race against time as they strive to discover the New Ripper’s identity and stop him from striking again. With his every move being closely monitored by the media, and the top brass at the Yard breathing down his neck to get a quick result, Jack Tyler begins to worry that if he doesn’t catch the killer soon, the case will be taken away from him and his career will be left in tatters.Jack’s Back, the debut novel by former homicide detective, Mark Romain, is a fast moving and gritty crime thriller that pits DCI Jack Tyler against a modern day serial killer, a psychopath who is convinced the original Ripper was an occultist, and that the murders he committed, far from being random, were a series of sacrificial rituals designed to bring him power and influence.
