Can They Do That?

Lewis L. Maltby

Can They Do That? As president of the National Workrights Institute, an offshoot of the ACLU, and nationally recognized expert in workplace rights, Lewis Maltby knows better than anyone how companies are impinging on our constitutional rights and the impact this is having on individual employees. In Can They Do That? he investigates how the restrictions of our constitutional rights is impacting the workplace. While the government needs evidence of a crime to tap phones or e-mail, your employer simply needs to have you on staff. But while we're all aware of possible phone and e-mail taps in the office, few know how far this lack of rights extends. Some employers are installing pocket-sized cameras in locker rooms and bathrooms, while others are tapping into home computers and requiring genetic testing. All of this is legal.

Memoir & Biography

Death by Cannibal Murder at Holy Cross Homicide Miami

Peter Davidson

Death by Cannibal: Criminals with an Appetite for Murder. A true-crime journalist for the National Enquirer, Peter delves into the worlds of five of the country's most horrific murderers: Gary Heidnik, John Weber, Albert Fentress, Nathaniel Bar-Jonah, and Marc Sappington. Though never quite reaching the infamy of Jeffrey Dahmer, these men committed acts just as frightening and heinous. Peter will detail their crimes and shed light on how these terrible criminals were finally brought to justice.

Murder at Holy Cross. On March 25, 2001, the body of a Catholic nun—stabbed 92 times—was discovered at South Florida's Holy Cross Academy. Police captured her killer—a young apprentice monk. But the deeper the investigation got, the more sordid and disturbing the story became. Peter Davidson captures the case in vivid detail.

Homicide Miami: The Millionaire Killers. On a balmy May night in Miami, Frank Griga and his girlfriend, Krisztina Furton, vanished from the face of the earth. Frank had made a fortune in the adult hotline business and had met Krisztina, an exotic dancer, while searching for models for his advertisements. Three weeks later, their torsos were found inside metal drums sunk in a murky canal. So began the unraveling of the most diabolical death-for-dollars plot in history. All evidence led investigators to Miami's Sun Gym—a mecca for serious bodybuilders. The gym's owner, two muscle-bound managers, and a steroid-crazed personal trainer were the ringleaders of a gang that targeted wealthy Floridians for kidnapping, extortion, and death. This is the story of how a band of brutal thugs planned to make a fortune from fear and blood—and how the quick actions of the authorities stopped the gang before any more innocents were killed.

Devil's Den

Dave Hall and Tym Burkey with Katherine Ramsland

Into the Devil's Den. When the FBI needed an informant to infiltrate the Aryan Nations, Agent Tym Burkey sought someone he could trust who would also have credibility with the paranoid militants. Circumstances brought him to Dave Hall, a tattooed, 350-pound, six-foot-four former biker, who agreed to take the job. As Hall penetrated the dangerous network of men intent on violence, he looked to Burkey to watch his back, while Burkey prayed that Hall was a man of integrity. How each overcame his doubts and developed faith that they could move forward as a team provides an angle that even Donnie Brasco's daring infiltration cannot match.
