But this is the third time Phil and his team have seen such an atrocity. Two other pregnant women have been killed in this way and their babies taken from them.

That night, he is back in the bullring, and what he finds on the blood-stained sand shocks the city of Valencia to its core.

The autobiography of Jack the Ripper by James Carnac( Sound Recording )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 libraries worldwide
This recently discovered memoir appears to have been written in the 1920s by someone who asserts that he was infamous killer, Jack the Ripper. This person is James Willoughby Carnac, and this memoir is an account of his entire life, including a few short months in 1888 when he became the murderer known to posterity as Jack the Ripper. This book introduces a new suspect for the infamous murders in Whitechapel in 1888, and contains information that does not appear to be derived from contemporary newspapers or any other publications. Descriptions of Tottenham in the 1870s, the visits to performances of Jekyll and Hyde, and the intricate geography of Whitechapel in 1888 are written with pin-point accuracy. Ultimately it is up to the reader to decide if they believe the mystery has been solved at last, but whichever side they may decide to believe, there is no question that this book will be a source of much debate for years to come

Tea time with terrorists : a motorcycle journey into the heart of Sri Lanka's civil war by Mark Stephen Meadows( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Armed with a map, a motorcycle, an infectious sense of humor, and a dim understanding of Sri Lankas war, author, artist, and adventurer Mark Stephen Meadows arrives in the country intending to have, as it were, afternoon tea with terrorists. Figuring that the first step to solving a problem is understanding it, he journeys north into the war zone, interviewing terrorists, generals, and heroin dealers along the way. He discovers an island of beauty and abundance ground down by three decades of war. As he travels north through Colombo, Kandy, and the damaged city of Jaffna, Meadows gives his riveting take on the war. Known for child conscription and drawn-out torture methods, he explains, the Tamil Tigers also invented suicide bombing and were the first to lace together terrorists and financiers into international networks of militant uprising. In Sri Lanka, Meadows discovers a deep view into an ancient culture. Along the way, he learns to trap an elephant, weave rope from coconut husks, and cast out devils, and he actually has tea with a few terrorists. This is the inspiring story of his journey and an enlightening meditation on the interconnectedness of globalization, the media, and modern terrorism
