Without a doubt by Marcia Clark( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 2,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without a Doubt is not just a book about a trial. It's a book about a woman. Marcia Clark takes us inside her head and her heart. Her voice is raw, incisive, disarming, unmistakable. Her story is both sweeping and deeply personal." "How did she do it, day after day? What was it like, orchestrating the most controversial case of her career in the face of the media's relentless klieg lights? How did she fight her personal battles - those of a working mother balancing a crushing workload and a painful, very public divorce? When did she know that her case was lost? Who stood by her, and who abandoned her? And how did she cope with the outcome? As Clark shares the secrets of her own life, we understand for the first time why she identified so strongly with Nicole, in a way no man ever could." "No one is spared in this unflinching account - least of all Clark herself, who candidly admits what she wishes she'd done differently - and, for the first time, we understand why the outcome was inevitable."--Jacket
Missing beauty : a true story of murder and obsession by Teresa Carpenter( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A distraught father walks into the newsroom of the Boston Herald asking for help in locating his missing daughter, a beautiful commercial artist named Robin Benedict. The publication of her photograph sets in motion a murder investigation that leads to the arrest of one of her former lovers. But nothing is quite what it seems. Benedict is actually a high-paid prostitute in Boston's Combat Zone. The suspect is the eminent anatomist Dr. William Henry James Douglas who, it is learned, has been embezzling funds from his laboratory at Tufts University to support his costly entanglement with Benedict. Pulitzer Prize-winner Teresa Carpenter brilliantly reconstructs one of the most fascinating murder investigations in years -- one which threads its way through many levels of Boston society. We watch a respectable man as he moves from the rarefied, cloistered world of academia into the shadowy recesses of Boston's red-light district, the Combat Zone. We watch as the city's newspapers, stirred to a fever pitch of competition, render the young prostitute a nearly mythological figure. Finally, we watch engrossed as a prosecutor puts together the puzzle, piece by piece, hoping to prove that murder was committed even though the body cannot be found. Is Robin Benedict really dead? If so, was it Dr. Douglas who killed her? As it considers these questions in riveting detail, Teresa Carpenter's work becomes a study of obsession. Not just one man's obsession with a prostitute, but an entire city's fascination with dishonor and the elusive search for beauty. - Jacket flap

The Miss Stone affair : America's first modern hostage crisis by Teresa Carpenter( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On September 3, 1901, Miss Ellen Stone, an American missionary, set out on horseback for a trek across the mountainous hinterlands of Balkan Macedonia. In a narrow gorge she was attacked by a band of masked men who carried her off the road and, more significantly, onto the path of history. Stone would become the first American captured for ransom on foreign soil." "In The Miss Stone Affair, master storyteller and Pulitzer Prize winner Teresa Carpenter re-creates the drama of this country's first modern hostage crisis - an event that held the world's attention and dominated the headlines in American and European dailies for months. Using a wealth of contemporary correspondence and diplomatic cables, she constructs a narrative that is suspenseful, harrowing, and at times even comical." "On a journey that takes the reader from Boston's Beacon Hill to Constantinople and the bloody revolution-wracked nation-states of the Balkans, Carpenter introduces an unforgettable cast of characters: the strong-willed Miss Stone and her Bulgarian companion, Katerina Tsilka, who is brought along by the kidnappers - in deference to Victorian convention - as a chaperone; the terrorists who threaten to murder their hostages and yet are awed when Tsilka gives birth to a baby girl; the diplomat who sees the Stone case as a vehicle for his personal ambition; rival negotiators whom the terrorists pit one against the other; a media mogul obsessed with finding the hostages and securing their literary rights; and, of course, the new president, Theodore Roosevelt, who must decide if he should, as many of his countrymen are demanding, send warships to the Near East or if some quieter form of intervention might win the day."--Jacket
