In this book, the official account on the London Transport bombings will be examined in great detail. How was that account established? How reliable was the evidence adduced by the authorities? Was that account coherent?
Author: Elias Davidsson
Powerful explosions rocked three underground trains in London in the morning of July 7, 2005. Another explosion occurred shortly later on a double-decker bus at Tavistock Square. Fifty-two people reportedly died in the explosions and over 700 were wounded. Numerous individuals lost limbs in the explosions. The deadly operation manifested careful planning and coordination. Four young British Muslims were named as the suicide-bombers. While the official account on the events of September 11, 2001 became etched in stone within 24 hours and remained unchanged ever since, the official account on the London bombings (hereafter 7/7) settled only after numerous modifications. In this book, the official account on the London Transport bombings will be examined in great detail. How was that account established? How reliable was the evidence adduced by the authorities? Was that account coherent? How were the suspects identified? Who gained by this mass-murder? This book demonstrates that the British authorities (a) did not demonstrate zeal in investigating events of 7/7; (b) did not produce conclusive evidence that the four accused died in the bombings and intended to kill themselves or others; (c) failed to prove that the explosions of 7/7 were caused by home-made explosives; (d) failed to carry out autopsies on the bodies of the alleged bombers and on victims; (e) failed to explain why so many security cameras did not work precisely on the morning of 7/7; (f) failed to explain the difficulties in counting the dead; (g) failed to explain why their timeline on the alleged bombers’ movements was initially wrong; (h) failed to investigate the extraordinary coincidence between Peter Power’s terror exercise and the actual events; (i) failed to explain what happened at Canary Wharf on the morning of 7/7. Justice has not been rendered. The victims continue to be deprived of the truth on the events. The book attempts to remedy this failure.

In the Pre-dawn hours on May 10, 1980 two youths were driving down a Mississippi Street when they noticed smoke billowing off in the distance at a house fire. The two youths reported the fire to the nearest fire station at 3:28 a.m. that was located only three blocks from the house engulfed in flames. The home on fire was that of U.S. Navy Veteran Dentist Dr. Tom Boring and he died in the fire as a result of a Cold Case murder mystery that stunned everyone in the Mississippi Delta and people within the fine art photography community. Tom had been involved throughout his life in a number of controversies with the law. Twice within his lifetime he had his Dental license revoked for convictions concerning manufacturer or possession of marijuana. Tom's unsolved murder is just one episode in his highly unconventional private life that involved guns, alcohol, drugs and women. His Legacy is best known for fine art color photographs his friend photographer William Eggleston brought kicking and screaming into the art world over 40 years ago. His life story detailed in the pages of this book is about what happened before, during, and after the famous photograph (Untitled) Greenwood, Mississippi 1973, informally known as "The Red Ceiling", was taken by William Eggleston in Tom's home. In the photo shows a naked light bulb in the center of a bright red ceiling. "The red ceiling is simply a red ceiling with diagonal cables and a light bulb hanging down in the middle. There's a Kamasutra freeze. There's something pornographic here almost. It's the sight of a murder. A horrible murder. The walls are bleeding. It could also be witnessed by a fly. You know buzzing around that bulb in the abstinent heat. The room probably stinks. One picture of a red ceiling and it can carry all that. It is about surface and it's not. It is about what it depicts and it's not. It is about something much more." Quote by Mark Holborn from Imagine/The Colorful Mr. Eggleston The True Legacy of Dr. Tom Boring will forever transform the way you see and get you closer to photographs taken in the 1970's of Tom and his home by William Eggleston, while recreating the crime scene of where and how he was murdered in the Mississippi Delta.

THE UNSOLVED MURDER OF ADAM WALSH IS A TWO-BOOK SERIES ALSO READ BOOK ONE: FINDING THE KILLER Six-year-old Adam Walsh disappeared from the toy department of a Sears in Hollywood, Florida, in 1981. Two weeks later and 125 miles away, a child’s severed head was found and identified as Adam. His parents, Reve and John Walsh, deeply grieved and dedicated their lives going forward to helping find other parents’ children who had gone missing. In 2008, 27 years later, police announced at a live televised press conference that they’d finally solved the case, blaming the kidnapping and murder on a by-then dead man. Because of that there could never be a trial. All of that is true. But virtually everything else that you think you know about this famous case is wrong. In 1983, 25 years earlier, that suspect had volunteered a confession that he’d killed Adam Walsh. But the police then had deeply investigated his story and couldn’t verify anything he’d said, not even that he’d been within 400 miles of the area. In 2008, when a new Hollywood Police chief closed the case, he admitted they had no new evidence. What the new chief didn’t mention was that by then he had six separate police witnesses who’d been at the shopping mall on that day in 1981, and had since spoken up. Most had seen Adam; all had seen a much more likely suspect -- Jeffrey Dahmer. A microfilmed Miami police report the author found and had previously shown to the Walsh detectives proved that Dahmer was then living just a few miles from the Sears. Dahmer’s boss told the author that the prompt for the report was that Dahmer had told him he’d just found the body of a homeless man behind the store. Yes, bad luck, Jeffrey Dahmer found a dead body. 1981 was 10 years before Milwaukee police found severed heads in Dahmer’s refrigerator and arrested him as a serial killer. He said he’d killed his first victim in 1978. Even worse, it turned out that the identification of the child as Adam had been slapdash and suspect. The Walsh parents weren’t present for it; John Walsh wrote years later that he’d never viewed even photographs of the remains. A family friend had been present for the ID, and Walsh wrote that his first impression had been that it wasn’t Adam. Because the remains were only a severed head, there were no fingerprints, and forensic DNA was still years away. The pathologist making the identification did it strictly by teeth, but he admitted he wasn’t a dental expert. Dental X-rays, when available, are a standard for comparison, but he didn’t have them. He also had a forensic dentist available but never consulted him. A medical examiner in another regional office performed the autopsy, but he also never consulted a forensic dentist. Worse again, that medical examiner never wrote and submitted an autopsy report, as state laws and guidelines require. That perhaps never happens. Had police ever charged any live defendant with murder in this case, prosecutors in court would have been handcuffed to prove that the dead child was Adam. The case likely then would have ended. Why all the misdirection? Did Dahmer take Adam? Is Adam even dead, is that someone else’s child? Could Adam be… alive? Fifteen years of continuing research. Author’s story appeared in 2007 on ABC Primetime, and in 2010 on a Sunday front page of The Miami Herald. “I never, and to my knowledge no one in the office, prepared a report on the head of Adam Walsh.” -- 2010 email from Dr. Ronald K. Wright, in 1981 the Chief Broward County Medical Examiner, who performed the autopsy on the remains of the child previously identified as Adam Walsh, when asked if he had a personal copy of Adam Walsh’s autopsy report that neither the Medical Examiner’s Office nor the police had. “There’s no way in hell.” -- A Florida forensic dentist, viewing the teeth in both the last picture of Adam Walsh and the remains of the child identified as him, responding to the question of whether they could be the same child. Other forensic dentists shown the same material agreed.

Author: Jahara A. Brown
Unsolved Writing is not just another book of poetry, but the key to subliminal thought. For years poetry has been the voice of art and reason since the mid 1700's. Authors like William Shakespeare, Gill Scott, Nikki Giovanni, and Saul Williams have made it where if no one will hear my fight in laymen terms then let them hear my fight and struggle poetically. What makes each poets style different but also alike at the same time, is at their time they fought for their cause in the ongoing battle of words. In this book you will not just see the words of a new movement but the answer to a new Renaissance Era. With topics that everyone in life experiences, Unsolved Writings sets the standards for politics, love, truth, and religion. If you wanted to know what this book is about ask yourself, do I want to be free?

The "Weekend Crisis" of May 1938: Analyzing an Unsolved Mystery in Czechoslovakia--Nazi Germany Relations attempts to answer precisely that question by evaluating the decision-making of Benes.
Author: Guy Setton
The "Weekend Crisis" during May 1938 presents a classic case-study in the strategy pre-emption. Czechoslovak intelligence was convinced that Hitler was on the verge of ordering the invasion of their country four months before the infamous Munich Conference. In response, President Eduard Benes ordered reservists to man the frontiers expecting war. The Nazi offensive never came. Did Hitler really plan to attack Prague in May 1938? Today, the lessons of the "Weekend Crisis" are all the more important. Following 9/11 the United States adopted a strategy of national defence based on pre-emption already applied in Iraq despite significant global opposition. The threat of terrorism combined with weapons of mass destruction means that Washington cannot risk waiting again to be attacked. It must strike first when a potentially catastrophic threat has been identified. Yet, what standard must our leaders apply when identifying and profiling such a threat? "The "Weekend Crisis" of May 1938: Analyzing an Unsolved Mystery in Czechoslovakia--Nazi Germany Relations" attempts to answer precisely that question by evaluating the decision-making of Benes. Was the Czechoslovak leader simply suffering from "bad nerves" when he ordered the reserve call-up?
The Friar and the Cipher is a wonderfully entertaining and historically wide-ranging book that is one part The Code Book, one part Possession, and one part The Da Vinci Code and will appeal to bibliophiles and laypeople alike.

Publisher: Broadway Books
A compulsively readable account of the most mysterious manuscript in the world, one that has stumped the world’s greatest scholars and codebreakers. The Voynich Manuscript, a mysterious tome discovered in 1912 by the English book dealer Wilfrid Michael Voynich, has puzzled scholars for a century. A small six inches by nine inches, but over two hundred pages long, with odd illustrations of plants, astrological diagrams, and naked women, it is written in so indecipherable a language and contains so complicated a code that mathematicians, book collectors, linguists, and historians alike have yet to solve the mysteries contained within. However, in The Friar and the Cipher, the acclaimed bibliophiles and historians Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone describe, in fascinating detail, the theory that Roger Bacon, the noted thirteenth-century, pre-Copernican astronomer, was its author and that the perplexing alphabet was written in his hand. Along the way, they explain the many proposed solutions that scholars have put forth and the myriad attempts at labeling the manuscript's content, from Latin or Greek shorthand to Arabic numerals to ancient Ukrainian to a recipe for the elixir of life to good old-fashioned gibberish. As we journey across centuries, languages, and countries, we meet a cast of impassioned characters and case-crackers, including, of course, Bacon, whose own personal scientific contributions, Voynich author or not, were literally and figuratively astronomical. The Friar and the Cipher is a wonderfully entertaining and historically wide-ranging book that is one part The Code Book, one part Possession, and one part The Da Vinci Code and will appeal to bibliophiles and laypeople alike.
