            Jeffrey Epstein. Harvey Weinstein. Bill Cosby. Peter Nygard. With this book, the infamous hall of fame for billionaire sex predators has inducted another member. Peter Nygard is the most famous and successful fashion designer that you might never have heard of. A Finnish-Canadian... crowned the polyester phenom by Forbes, he built a nearly billion-dollar fortune shilling pants and blouses for the thirty-five and older set. Dillard's, Sears, and Wal-Mart all called him one of their top providers, and he boasted a massive flagship store in the heart of Times Square. As he was building his fashion empire, however, Nygard also was allegedly building a dark international web of sexual predation and corruption one that countless girls and women around the world claim destroyed their lives. Like in so many similar cases, Nygard stands accused of using his power, influence, and the trappings of success to ensnare and victimize vulnerable young women. Dangling the promise of a glamorous international modeling career before them, his victims-some allegedly as young as fourteen - claim that Nygard lured them to his California beach house, Canadian bachelor pad, and massive Caribbean estate, only to subject them to horrors they never could have imagined.

            You Are A Click Away From Discovering The Chilling Stories Of The Over 30 Black Children And Young Adults Murdered In Atlanta In 1979-1981 That Have Left The Families Of The Victims And The World At Large Still Wondering Who Was Truly Responsible For The Murders! July 25th 1979 A...fter the buzzer signaling the end of their game sounded, Q, Teddy and other members of their team gather to shake hands, and the assembly breaks up. Q leaves the Boys' Club and starts walking home. As he nears the intersection, his friend Randy Joe Heast shouts out to him, while standing next to his car across the street. Hey, man. Where you heading? Home, said Q. Well. I can get you closer. I'm heading to the movies to meet up with a friend Thanks. Q crosses the street and joins Heath, and moments later, they drive off. The car pulls up near a bus stop and Q gets out.... Three days later, Louis Evans' (Q's mother) panic is uncontainable. She has not seen Q since July 25th. She has already called every one of his friends but no one knows where he is. Perhaps it's because the police are yet to identify two bodies of two dead children who had been discovered in Niskey Lake Road, and they need several more weeks. Q and Teddy are the two bodies. They had been the first two victims of a serial killer! And for the next 2 years (in the period between 1979 and 1981), more than 30 black children and young adults would die under mysterious circumstances that would later be commonly referred to as 'Atlanta child murders , leaving families heartbroken and still seeking answers, even to-date on who was really responsible for the murders. I know you are wondering... Why has the mystery never been fully solved? What were the lapses? What did the police do in handling the investigations? Who was the prime suspect and how were they 'caught'? What was the evidence? Was anybody jailed for the murders? Why were they interested in kids? Who were the victims and how did they meet their untimely death? If you're t

            When rumors about Geraldine Ferraro--the first woman vice-presidential nominee by a major party in U.S history--reached First Lady Nancy Reagan during the 1984 presidential election, a secret operation was launched to investigate her. It revealed Ferraro's familial ties to organi...zed crime and the extent to which she would have been subject to pressure or blackmail by the Mafia if elected. Written by an insider responsible for running the investigation, this never-before-told story goes behind the scenes as an incumbent president's campaign works to expose a political opponent's mob connections. Part detective story, part political thriller, the narrative features all the major players in the Reagan White House and 1984 reelection committee, with revealing anecdotes about Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
