“Gritty. True. Compulsively readable. This is his best book.”– Gregg Olsen, NY Times Best Selling Author

A narcissistic professional photographer lived a dangerous double life as a serial killer. He’d focus his rage on prostitutes mostly. It wasn’t uncommon for him to bring them home then try to explain why they were there to his wife.

Sexual urges met, the killer would strangle his victims and dump their bodies in places he knew the police would eventually find them. The evil murderer needed the world to know that he was smarter than the police and women meant nothing to him but a necessary sexual inconvenience.

Then, by a stroke of chance and aggressive police work, the wheels of justice stumbled upon a lead. It was nothing more than a lined sheet of paper that read, “List of 10,” but shortly after its discovery, a task force was created and a serial killer was nabbed.

This book is about the victims he left behind, not the person who took their lives. I will never condone such actions, nor will I try to rationalize his behavior. He will go to the grave, hopefully sooner rather than later, knowing the identity of four women from his fabled List of 10. It’s his sick way of showing people he’s still in charge.

His name is Joseph Naso, and this book will grip you from the beginning and won’t let you go until the final word.

Memoir/Business – Outfoxing the Gaming Club

outfoxing-the-gaming-clubOutfoxing the Gaming Club
By Pascale Batieufaye
Publisher: Xlibris
ISBN: 978-1503586598
ASIN: B013HOYZAQ
Pages: 310
Genre: Memoir, Business

In this debut memoir, a former casino employee discusses how he thinks his former bosses acted on his many suggestions.

Batieufaye tells of working for a Resort Casino, operated by Pequot tribal leaders from 1996 to 2004. He began as a kitchen worker and later moved on to guest services.

In this book, he says that he believes his company acted upon ideas he submitted through the company’s suggestion program without recognizing his contributions. (However, he notes several times that he’s not seeking “reimbursement for any written suggestion that I submitted that made them tons of moneys.”)

Batieufaye focuses primarily on his grievances regarding the casino management, but he also discusses the importance of “putting the accent on alternative natural methods over antidepressant pills. He also weighs in on various sociopolitical issues, from animal cruelty to world leadership.

The author includes an “excerpt” of an unidentified news item that says an FBI probe uncovered corruption among the casino’s tribal leadership. His suggestion submissions, reproduced in the text, expound lengthily on concepts that may have occurred simultaneously to many other people.

His mention of his willingness to donate any proceeds of this book to charitable and civic causes is admirable, though, and he does effectively convey how he’s suffered in life.

Memoir – A Boy’s Life in the Baby Boom

a-boy-s-life-in-the-baby-boomA Boy’s Life in the Baby Boom
By James Herbert Smith
Publisher: Elm Grove Press
Published: November 2016
ISBN: 978-1940863054
Pages: 146
Genre: Memoir

“A Boy’s Life in the Baby Boom” takes us back to a freedom in childhood unheard of today. As the first boomers turn 70, Smith among them, his tender and poignant story invites the reader onto his bicycle pedaling to Bullhead Pond for swimming with friends, to understand a boy trying to succeed at three sports, to witness first love in bloom. The memoir reminds us of both the travails and the ecstasy of being a kid, a teen-ager, maturing through failure and success.

“A Boy’s Life” is about shooting imaginary Germans in the hayloft of cousin Andy’s barn, not so long after our fathers and uncles came back from fighting real Germans in World War II. It is  about playing football with no grownups around to spoil the fun. This is about breaking into Lincoln Avenue School to play basketball — and getting caught. This is about rafting and spearing mudpuppies in the Erie Canal and throwing snowballs at cars and watching “Mighty Mouse” and “Sky King” on Saturday mornings. This is about growing up in a world where kids roamed free all day long without an adult in sight. This is about Hopalong Cassidy to the Mickey Mouse Club; Davy Crockett to Rawhide; swimming in creeks to baling hay; Little League to the varsity; the Cold War to the Vietnam War; “Earth Angel” to “Yellow Submarine;” the assassinations of JFK and MLK to a man on the moon; from first girlfriend to first wife.
