KND Free Book Search Tool: Biography & Memoir

Powered by our magical Kindle free book tool, here are this morning's latest additions to our Kindle Free Book listings...
But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
Here's the set-up:
Sex Crimes Then, originally published in 1993 (as Sex Crimes: Ten Years on the Front Lines Prosecuting Rapists and Confronting Their Collaborators) and its sequel Sex Crimes Now.As a front-line prosecutor and as chief of the Special Victims Bureau in the Queens district attorney's office in New York City, Alice Vachss specialized in cases of rape, incest, and child sexual abuse. In Sex Crimes Then, the woman the press described as one of America's toughest prosecutors grippingly recounts her career and in the process offers a searing indictment of our justice system. Included are close-ups of her most harrowing cases, among them the predatory pedophile who headed a boy's club to get closer to victims; the serial rapist who terrorized the city as "The Stalker": and the violent incest offender who tortured his "property" (his own daughter.)"My first lesson about sex crimes prosecution," Vachss writes, "was that perpetrators were not the only enemy." She shows how the system is weighted against victims as she describes the "rape collaborators"—police officers and judges whose ingrained attitudes aid and comfort criminals, elected officials and attorneys concerned only with their political futures, fickle juries seemingly impervious to compelling evidence, and a legal system skeptical of cries of rape.Sex Crimes takes us on a nightmare ride through the dark side of the human soul. As Vachss makes frighteningly clear, rehabilitation rarely works with sex offenders, who are too often released to strike again. This impassioned book will shock and enrage readers as well as challenge them to demand change."Alice Vachss has written an extraordinary book. It is the single best book about prosecuting sex crimes in America, period."—Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy (Goodfellas), Casino"Three elements make the book both terrific and terrifying: the personal story of this committed modern-day warrior and feminist heroine; her gritty professional struggles; and the courageous victims who will haunt you. Nobody knows rapists better than Alice Vachss." Edna Buchanan, The Washington Post Book World"A stark, passionate closing argument in Vachss' broader case against the criminal justice system."—The New York Times Book Review"An impassioned account of rape victims, the criminals who terrorize them, and the legal system that too often neglects them."—Entertainment Weekly"Angry, insightful and righteous, this memoir recounts specific cases against pedophiles, serial rapists and incest offenders."—Publisher’s Weekly"The rapists’ enemy"—Julie Bindel, The GuardianIn an even better than the original spellbinding sequel, Sex Crimes Now finds Alice Vachss returning to prosecution–this time in a remote rural county. Still the same, she insists to a jury: "I don’t have to prove motive. The motive for rape is rape," and battles a system hell-bent on freeing a monster.

    Thanks so much for your free Kindle e-book website!
    It’s like walking into a library and picking out any book I like without having to return it.
    I have almost a thousand books on my Kindle, about 95% of them were free due to this site.
    I’m never lacking for something great to read!
    I’ve discovered some wonderful authors I never would have known about otherwise.
    Plus, I get a big kick out of later checking the current price on some of them and finding how much I’ve saved by checking your site. One book was over 20 dollars!

    Why are the Harriet Tubman & Life on the Old Plantation books not available to customers from Canada?

  3. Mike on December 14, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Seems to be working now.

    We’re checking code on all category pages today to make sure there are no remaining glitches. Thanks!

    I’m having the same problem as Blay Merritt. I’ve been trying to access free books for a week now and get the same response, “Sorry, but demand was too high…”. I’m not having any luck in accessing any of the free books.

  6. BJay Merritt on November 26, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    This is my first use of your site. The first 3 book categories I tried to access said “Sorry, but demand was too high to complete your request. Please try again.”
    Is this a reference to the technical issues involved, such as high traffic to the particular server? Or is some method of controlling the number of free downloads?
    It’s pretty frustrating to be denied access to these free resources on my first use of the tool. I hope this isn’t some sort of scam.
    I got the link after purchasing your $0.99 ebook “Kindle free for All.”

      Vicki – Unfortunately, we’re at the mercy of the publishers on this. We don’t set the prices on the Kindle books listed here, we just provide the listings.
