Jack London was an American author, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire," "An Odyssey of the North," and "Love of Life." He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen," and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was part of the radical literary group, "The Crowd," in San Francisco, and a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction expose The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes."

A tale of two families linked by one big secret and the lies that must conceal it, but separated by hatred and a deadly rivalry. Bellfont is a prosperous mill town, situated half way between Liverpool, the city that looks out across the Atlantic to America, and Manchester, powerhouse of cotton mills and factories. It is 1860 and the American Civil War is about to cause a crisis in the cotton industry. Two powerful men stand to lose if they play their cards wrong. Thomas Cartwright is thoughtful, enlightened, wanting only the best for the mill workers on whom they all depend. Ernest Roscow is hard, unyielding, driven by greed and anger. Crucially he has dismissed as irrelevant the new iron ships beginning to to ply their trade between Liverpool and America. Between these two men is a deadly rivalry and a lifelong loathing. Unknown to either is a secret known only to an old woman near death. 'You must only marry for love,' she tells her beloved granddaughter, Laura Roscow, as she reveals the legacy that will lead to unforeseen consequences for the family. Later, as the truth dawns on him, Ernest will shout at the daughter he loves and has spoilt all her life, 'You are no daughter of mine. You are a wicked woman.' Powerful as he is - he cannot control the events that are about to unfurl. Meanwhile, across town, clever, ambitious Emma Lovelock is preparing to disobey her father, Thomas Cartwright's foreman and trusted right hand, in order to apply for a job with the enemy - as lady's maid in Roscow House. When the saga opens, two men hold the balance of power, but as the story unfolds, it is two women who will change their world, challenging lies and exposing secrets, with dramatic and uncontrollable consequences.

The Buckeye State produced its share of wicked women. Tenacious madam Clara Palmer contended with constant police raids during the 1880s and '90s. Only her death could shut the doors of her gilded bordello in Cleveland. Failed actress Mildred Gillars left for Europe right before World War II. Because she fell in love with the wrong man, she wound up peddling Nazi propaganda on the radio as "Axis Sally." Volatile Hester Foster was already doing time at the Ohio State Penitentiary when she bashed in the head of a fellow inmate with a shovel. The sinister Anna Marie Hahn dosed at least five elderly Cincinnati men with arsenic and croton oil and then watched them die in agony while pretending to nurse them back to health. Award-winning crime writer Jane Ann Turzillo recounts the stories of Ohio's most notorious vixens, viragoes and villainesses.

What can Jezebel, the Bible’s wickedest queen, reveal about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor? What about the Woman at the Well—the one with five husbands and a live-in lover? And what of the prostitute whose tears bathe the feet of Jesus in front of people who despise her? There are also “wicked good” women like Deborah, Ruth, Hannah, Abigail, Esther, Mary, and more. What do their lives tell us about God’s invincible love and his determined plan to save us? In Wicked Women of the Bible Ann Spangler tells the stories of twenty wicked and “wicked good” women in greater detail. At the end of each story, Ann provides a brief section including additional historical and cultural background as well as a brief Bible study in order to enhance the book’s appeal to both individuals and groups. The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy.

On a foggy evening in November 1905, 48-year-old Thomas Jackson returned to his home on Melville Street in Vancouver after nine months of prospecting north of the Skeena. Jackson was happy because he had made an important gold strike. Four days later he was dead from strychnine poisoning. Any of the other four people living in the house on Melville Street could have slipped the poison into the mixture of Epsom salts and beer that Jackson took on the morning of his death. Reporters from Vancouver's newspapers chose Jackson's teary-eyed, fragile, 24-year-old wife, Theresa, as their first choice for the guilty party. Then as the days went by, their preference shifted to the dead man's steely-eyed, light-fingered, American mother-in-law, Esther Jones. Suspicion also fell on the two boarders - Esther's nephew Harry Fisher and Ernest Exall. All of them had the opportunity to plant the poison. Eventually the police followed up on the newspapers' revelations, the mostimportant being that Harry Fisher was not Esther's nephew but her son. Fisher fled to Washington, and in his absence his mother and sister were arrested - not for murder but for perjured testimony at the coroner's inquest. What followed was a series of hearings and trials in the city's courtrooms with fledgling lawyers trying to make their names in combat with the celebrated defence counsel Joseph Martin, KC. At the same time the newspapers, which were locked in a deadly circulation war, tried desperately to trump each other with juicy bits of information, all of it splashed on their front pages week after week. In the end the two women served time in the BC Penitentiary, but no one was ever tried for the murder of Thomas Jackson. Acclaimed writer Betty Keller has based her sensational story of murder and intrigue on actual events that occurred in Vancouver's pre-World War I years.
