One Sunday morning in 1993 a 16-year-old girl named Eliza Claps goes missing from a church in the centre of Potenza, Italy. Shortly before her disappearance, Elisa had met Danilo Restivo, a strange local boy with a fetish for cutting women's hair on the back of buses. Elisa's family are convinced that Resitvo is responsible for their daughter's disappearance, but he is protected by local big-wigs: by his Sicilian father, by a doctor with links to organised crime, by a priest who had vices of his own. Years went by and Elisa's family could find only false leads. 2002, and Restivo is now living in Bournemouth. In November that year, his neighbour is found murdered, with strands of her own hair in her hands. Once again the police are at a loss to pin anything on him. It's not until 2010, when Elisa's decomposed body is found in the church where she went missing, that the two cases are linked and Restivo is finally dealt with. Blood on the Altar combines a gripping true crime case with Jones's deep understanding of Italian culture - the impunity it offers to the powerful - he so expertly demonstrated in his bestseller: The Dark Heart of Italy.

"Blue Ice" is not an attempt to be catchy or complicated. These are just words that give away emotion and substance to the expressions that fall all around "thin ice". They are just words that apply to what I write about most - relationships of the intimate kind - often those not considerate of our welfare or worth. I have wrestled an almost innate need to rescue and fix people, obeying false commandments and paying penance to procure my own good, and believe I deserve it. What makes it too daring to save ourselves before extending an arm through shards of blue ice, clutching a hand held offering... still beating? I do not want you to think this is a dark book shrilling prophetic doom in contorted faces. It is about rising up on the power of our own self-worth. It is about being anchored by the shouts from lamp lit watch towers, old draw bridges, and warmed stick built shacks - everywhere. If there is obscurity in my poems and stories, it's so you may see yourself in a few words, a phrase or sentence, and chisel or sculpt what you need to find in one spring fed pocket of air that you are not alone. ... it is in the wrestling with cold swirling waters that we find our bliss, sustain it breath by breath, and round by round. Am I on thin ice? Maybe, but I can see blue a safe distance away. Just words...

More kids are dying right now in obedience to the Jehovah's Witness ban on blood transfusions than perished in the fire at Waco, Texas, says former Witness elder David A. Reed. How can a major sect with headquarters in New York City and twelve million attending its religious services worldwide quietly lead victims to early deaths without public outcry? Reed cites dozens of well-documented cases and media reports naming victims, doctors, and hospitals issuing their death certificates as he blows the whistle on a deadly cult that secretly instructs members to kidnap children from hospital beds and teaches children to resist doctors violently and give false testimony in court.This former minister, now widely recognized as an authority on the sect, explains his own role in bringing new members under mind control. With captivating anecdotes he details an enforcement apparatus that reaches even into clinics and hospitals. He brings to light secret instructions for hospital employees to turn over confidential patient records to the church, and tells how the hierarchy conducts bedside trials of members who accept forbidden medical treatment. Reed joined the sect as a naive young adult and rose through the ranks until he learned how the secretive leadership operated. Realizing that his friends were dying for beliefs supposedly channeled from God, but actually fabricated by the church hierarchy. After leaving the sect, he spent years researching its history and activities resulting in evidence revealed here for the first time. Reed's warning cannot be ignored.For anyone with a family member involved with Jehovah's Witnesses, this book is a vital resource. It will also provide some fun questions to ask the local Watchtower salesman next time he appears on the doorstep. -Atheist CoalitionOne of the most lucid exposures of a religious sect I have ever read. . .the equivalent of a years worth of '60 Minutes' programs. Reed and the publisher deserve the thanks of millions of Americans for exposing the dangers of a multi-billion dollar book distributing sect. Truly an amazing study. One of the finest works ever published in this genre. . . . Must reading for health care professionals along with teachers, clergy, psychologists, and media professionals. This text gets my strongest, my very highest recommendation. -www.concentric.net/~Mando/bookreviews/botaco.html

As the world races toward its momentous end-times encounter between good and evil (known in the Bible as Armageddon), a deepening antagonism is developing worldwide against conservative Christians. According to a 2014 Pew Research Center report this hostility now includes the United States, which elevated from the lowest category of government restrictions on Christian expressions as of mid-2009 to an advanced category in only the last three years. This trend may point to one of the most overlooked aspects of Bible prophecy--a war that ultimately pits born-again believers against religious Christians. The inspired texts themselves say a time is coming when "whosoever killeth you [true Christians] will think that he doeth God service." In Matthew 24:9, Jesus further warned: "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you," and in the book of Revelation it describes this era as when Antichrist will have power "to make war with the saints, and to overcome them..." (Rev. 13:7; Dan. 7:21). All this unfolds as a False Prophet emerges--a final global superchurch leader that causes "as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed" (Rev. 13:15).

Here is a display of an example of the consequences lying ahead of respected religious leaders who toy with secret sins. This dramatic piece contains an emphatic expression of the fact that unconfessed sins can not be concealed for ever, like smoke, it still finds a way to ooze out of an unexpected opening. Rev. Hosea, had desecrated the Lord's altar with terrible hidden sins, and in his various attempt to conceal these sins, he got them increasing one upon the other until he got too far and felt it hard to turn back. This dramatic piece had already been made into an inspiring TV Serial and shown on more than 75 TV stations in Nigeria and ran on many satellite channels including the AFRICAN MAGIC Channel of the M-NET, South Africa.
