The movie launched Jackson’s international career.

A new light was now cast, not only on Anne’s life but also on her novels, which feature gruesome and violent deaths and confront dark issues, including infanticide and incest. Acclaimed literary biographer Joanne Drayton was given unparalleled access to Anne Perry, her friends, relatives, colleagues, and archives to complete this book. She intersperses the story of her life with an examination of her writing, drawing parallels between Perry’s own experiences and her characters and storylines. Anne Perry’s books deal with miscarriages of justice, family secrets exposed, punishment, redemption, and forgiveness, themes made all the more poignant in light of her past. She has sold 25 million books worldwide and published in 15 different languages, yet she will now forever be known as a murderer who became a writer of murder stories. The Search for Anne Perry is a gripping account of a life, and provides understanding of the girl Anne was, the adult she became, her compulsion to write, and her view of the world.

Robert Keith Wallace - The Physiology of Consciousness
If America is to continue as a powerful, positive influence in the world, Americans must be strong and balanced in body and mind. Yet an overwhelming number of Americans suffer from poor health. The health care crisis is far more fundamental than delivery of existing health care; it is a problem of the very world view upon which modern medicine is based. To be truly effective, medicine must take advantage of the more comprehensive, up-to-date, and holistic understanding of nature provided by twentieth-century science. It is time for a new medical paradigm based on the unified field. This new medical paradigm, which is brilliantly described by Dr. Robert Keith Wallace in this book, has historical roots in the most ancient tradition of knowledge in the world - the Vedic tradition of India. Maharishi Mehesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, has worked with modern scientists and scholars of the Vedic tradition to bring to light a wealth of knowledge and practical technologies based on the most profound and comprehensive understanding of natural law. The Physiology of Consciousness is about the rediscovery of this knowledge and Dr. Wallace's contribution to it's powerful and timely resurgence. He lucidly presents a world view based on Maharishi's Vedic Science which integrates the concepts of mind and body, consciousness and matter, and extends our concept of health beyond the individual to include the collective health of society.
Lyndon E. Lafferty - The Zodiac Killer Cover-Up
The true identity of the psychotic ZODIAC killer has been known by the Mandamus Seven (group of retired law enforcement officers, federal agents, a minister, and a District Attorney) since March 15, 1971. This true story is now being told for the very first time. Official corruption and political intervention forced the investigation into a top-secret, covert status, giving the insane ZODIAC killer immunity and a license to kill. Of the over 2,500 suspects cleared by the local authorities and the Department of Justice, this man is the only suspect who had the uncontrollable and powerful motive—adultery! Mind and body ravaged by years of severe alcoholism, his blood-lusting revenge turned him into the most shocking and vicious killer in our 20th century. Through his tauntings of the police, his codes, ciphers, and letters, he was on a mission to redeem his shattered ego, to prove that he is better, smarter, and more clever than all the judges and police put together. With lordly arrogance and jealousy, and with the assistance of the police, he continued his killing spree until he claimed a total of 37 victims. Lips sealed by secret oaths and federal obstructions of justice, the investigation was further impeded by personal associations with the suspect and his tenacious, intrepid wife, placing family members in imminent danger. The evidence is overwhelming and given the totality of the facts, it is the author’s opinion that there is no jury in the world that would not find the suspect guilty of being the criminal genius, ZODIAC. Author’s Bio: Lyndon E. Lafferty is an passionate outdoorsman who hiked to the top of Mt. Lassen three times and once to the top of Mt. Fujiyama, Japan during the Korean War. He also made two attempts each to climb Mt. Shasta and Mt. Whitney. Lyndon holds a U.S. patent and two patents pending. He loves to write and is currently working on two more novels. Lyndon has an excellent record with the California Highway Patrol with many commendations devoting 27 years to law enforcement. He is best known for crushing the hood and top of a patrol car as he and fellow officers used it as a platform to rescue 38 injured and trapped passengers on a commercial bus in November 1976. Inheriting the Zodiac investigation has been both a blessing and a curse. Bound by oaths of secrecy to a highly respected homicide detective, his lips were sealed until the death of the detective in 1977.
