The Polk Conspiracy: Murder and Cover-Up of CBS News Correspondent George Polk

By Marton, Kati

New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1990. First Edition. Hardcover. 0374135533 . Red quarter cloth over black board. Handsome copy with some top edge soil else FINE. Pp. xii, [3], 4-369 [371-photograph credits]. Index. Illustrated with black and white photographs. "Eventually the government in Athens produced a suspect, Salonika journalist Gregory Slaktopoulos, whose confession led to his trial and conviction and placed the blame for the murder squarely on the Communists. Marton's captivating, solidly researched inquiry presents three major arguments. First, she contends, the confession, obtained under torture, was false. Second, Polk, an outspoken critic of the royalist regime, probably doomed himself by threatening to expose its corruption. Third, investigators, including Donovan, conspired to cover up rightist sanction of the murder. The royalist regime, she concludes, in fact arranged Polk's death."'--Publishers Weekly, 1990. ; 9.40 X 6.20 X 1.30 inches; 370 pp pages .

Cruel Doubt

By McGinniss, Joe

Riverside, New Jersey: Simon & Schuster. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1991. First Edition. Hardcover. 0671679473 . Clean bright copy. ; DJ in Mylar cover. Very tight, clean copy. McGinniss recounts the terrible events of July 25, 1988 when Lieth Von Stein was fatally stabbed and his wife Bonnie severely injured. Suspicion quickly focused on Chris, their son, and his friends, college students immersed in a world of drugs, alcohol, and the game Dungeons and Dragons. The straightforward account focuses on Chris and his friends, particularly James Upchurch III, who was found guilty of the actual murder, McGinnis tells the story from Bonnie's perspective, portraying a widow who relentlessly pursues the truth about the crime while acting also as a loving mother, unwilling to accept the truth about her son's involvement. In a book that's more a psychodrama than a detective story, McGinniss has drawn a riveting portrait of parental devotion that flies in the face of the truth. His reputation as a brutally honest storyteller ( Fatal Vision , LJ 9/1/83; Blind Faith , LJ 1/89) will attract many readers. Highly recommended. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall .
