Seven Sins, Village Voice Media True-Crime Anthology, Hits the E-Shelves

Categories: Crime
An early-morning message from Village Voice Media:
Every week, writers for New Times Broward-Palm Beach and our parent company, Village Voice Media, produce elegant magazine-style feature writing -- a gritty portion of which comes in the form of true-crime stories.

Now VVM has collected some of its best recent true-crime yarns into an ebook: Seven Sins: A True Crime Anthology From Village Voice Media. Available on Amazon and iTunes, the book features seven stories, including the odd story of a young San Francisco woman so enamored of serial killers that she became known as America's most prominent "murder groupie" and the incredible tale of a young American Muslim woman "honor-killed" by her own father.

The book's already drawing praise from crime-writing pros.

"If you thought that short true-crime stories died with pulp magazines like Headline Detective or Police Files, you might be surprised to learn that they live on in the pages of big-city alternative weeklies," wrote Carroll Lachnit, author of four murder mysteries, including Murder in Brief and Janie's Law. "Village Voice Media's collection of such stories from its publications is a dark tour of American society."

Michael A. Kahn, the attorney and award-winning author of Trophy Widow and other legal thrillers, is also a fan.

"Those who write about true crime must face the challenge that truth is often stranger than fiction -- and messier and emptier and less coherent," noted Kahn. "All of which makes this collection the more remarkable."

These Village Voice Media journalists have confronted the challenges head-on and produced a compelling yet chilling set of true-crime stories that would make Raymond Chandler proud." Got an iPad or a Kindle? For just $2.99, you can curl up with some of our best stories about America's worst people.

Tell American Science-book PublisherJohn Wiley & Sons to Stop Spying for the C.I.A.


Consumer trust canchange suddenly and unrecoverable. Events can easy snowball out of control.What’s taken for granted can vanish in an instant: John Wiley & Sons lives by the brand, John Wiley & Sons dies by the brand!


To write mystrange memoir about criminal secrets, I worked foreighteen months at John Wiley & Sons’ San Francisco archive, located in Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s office. During the act of arranging facts for JohnWiley & Sons 200th anniversary book, I have actuallyuncovered an unexpected better story than the by-the-numbers retrospective of apublisher.


After eighteen months of improvised and surprising interviews with Chairman Peter Booth Wiley, the quotes from him were a big pile of unorganized papers in a shoe-boxcontaining only my hand-scribbled notes. As editor of Peter Booth Wiley’s oral pulp history I was not only participant inreconstructing and the artful arrangement of the conversations, its perversedrama of unwanted soap opera homo-sex (there was no DSK-button in his office)and the Chairman’s alcoholism, butalso commentator to turn John Wiley & Sons’ ugly history intosophisticated literary journalism. I selectively report word by word what I hadpenciled down during the intimate ‘interviews’, in which he had a penchant for screaming atme.


To better dealw/ Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s monologues I gave his words satiricalinterpretations and use the method of dramatizing and narrating by being ascreative as I want to be! My character sketches and sarcastic undertones fallunder the protection of the First Amendment. It’s a new kind of investigativejournalism, where obsolete rules where thrown out and an intermediate standardfor publishing was used. Why? The quotesfrom Chairman Peter Booth Wiley and the intrusive nature of what Iam telling do not lend themselves to firm corroboration, although every singlething in my investigation is plausible. It is my, the investigative citizen journalists’fundamental job to make what is true believable!


John Wiley & Sons’ chairman Peter Booth Wiley meets thethreshold for sexual harassment in California.Sexually filthy and violent Peter Booth Wiley hadbeen a religiously inspired ‘sworn homosexual virgin’ who broke his promissory words and began the mostprovocative sexual harassment of Yours Truly, me, the pink employee who hadbeen hired by Peter Booth Wileyas an archivist. Within a week after signing on tothe so-called homosexual agenda, Peter Booth Wiley ran half naked, dick-in-hand, amokin the office.


The self-proclaimed “fifth and sixth” Wiley generationsat John Wiley & Sons were hunting - unprecedented- for in-house employee dissidents at John Wiley& Sons’ NYC offices in the 1960s. The faux “fifth and sixth” Wiley generations performed illegal warrantless searches of employees’ homesand offices. "I secretly searchedthrough offices; my daddy had a contractor monitor homes when necessary".Daddy W. Bradford Wiley was blessed with social-Darwinist brutishness; yet he became paranoid about hisstock grabbing critics among John Wiley &Sons employees.




His lineage qualified Daddy W. Bradford Wiley more to getaway with robbing widows and orphans and for feeding at the public trough than theexecutive suit at John Wiley & Sons. "My daddy’s branch of the family was so far removed fromthe line of inheritance [at John Wiley & Sons Inc.] that all he got was thename Wiley" said the privileged son of an unprivileged son while crossingand re-crossing his legs.   Daddy Wiley’s attachment to theheirs of JohnWiley & Sonswas not ‘real’, theirs was not his blood; he was a model ofsemi-self-creation.


With attention to detailedbackground checks and mining mountains of facts, this is also the story of Langley’s “IntelligenceOutsourcing”, where anything goes. Under Allan Dulles, a group of career spiestook control through bribery and subversion of fifty U.S. news organizations and a dozenpublishing houses. At textbook publisher John Wiley & Sons they installed asTrojan horse namesake Daddy W. Bradford Wiley to run the C.I.A.–frontpublisher.


With secrecy at the core of its spy strategy, the C.I.A. wasopen for business at publisher John Wiley & Sons.


DaddyW. Bradford Wiley’s decision to flip over to the C.I.A. has changed thedestinies of everyone at John Wiley & Sons. In the secret world of C.I.A.spies for hire, what is Daddy W. Bradford Wiley’s identity? Forgery? A double?


Imposter/interloperDaddy W. Bradford Wiley invented his own genealogy; his strategy was tofollow the C.I.A.’s trail of tax-payer money and he made a great fortune withit. Acting as a real ‘Wiley’, he set up a new chain of command to performinherently U.S. government functions and installed top-level security contractspies [Orwellian knowledge engineers!!] at John Wiley & Sons for the purposeof stealing research – intellectual property - from John Wiley & Sons worldwideuniversity clients; to gather information on local academicians and eavesdropon them.


JohnWiley & Sonsare the most damaging spies to university research around the globe in the pasthalf century. The program took its beginning in the political climate of the escalating Americanwar in Vietnam.By 2012 the U.S.has a national security industry of almost two thousand top-secret level, traitorous John Wiley & Sonsincluded.


Since 9/11 C.I.A. contractor John Wiley & Sons does predatorythings on overseas campuses that no branch of the U.S. government would be allowed todo! Chairman Peter Booth Wiley is not committed to harmreduction! "Weare forced to act as a secret police in Saudi universities", Chairmanblabbermouth barked aggressively. Students in Arab countries are reduced by thechairman to demons. "We have to keep these rag-heads from falling intoJihad’s hands". TheWiley Inc. Shadow Company conducts its crimes at Arab universities in thespirit of ‘mob vengeance’ againstacademics. "Arabs are incapable of democratic culture". Where thereis oppression by Americans, there will be resistance by students!


Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s incendiary rhetoric about attacks onstudents and the destruction of property conveyed an atmosphere in which theAmerican spies feel entitled to use unrestricted force against Arabs. "Ouragents use arson as an intimidation tactic to deliver a politicalmessage"; the brutal Chairman went scorched earth! Lawless John Wiley &Sons’blitzkrieg pyromaniacs are committing more than academic arson, leaving a smolderingtrail in their wake. Are Arab students witnessing John Wiley & Sons’ thugs dashing off campus with singed eyebrowsand hands, some of them still smelling like gasoline?


Is nightmarish Chairman Peter Booth Wiley an arsonist bringing his own fire not under control?


JohnWiley & Sons agents are also in the market for ‘information operations’,the intelligence contractor’s art to convince overseas academicians via newsWeb sites to align their political view with U.S. interests. And if said foreignacademicians might be terrorist suspects, John Wiley & Sons’ ‘knowledgeengineers’will get involved in their interrogation by slapping thick John Wiley &Sons ethics textbooks into their face. Textbooks, objects of learning, aretransformed in the bloody hands of John Wiley& Sons into raw objects of torture to extract confessions!


John Wiley & Sons today displays typical fascist characteristics!


The C.I.A. espionage unitwithin John Wiley & Sons is known for its media strategy to say “nocomment” in three dozen languages. In order to stay in thespy-business and to protect Chairman PeterBooth Wiley’s ill-gotten spy-money in a safe and untouchableoffshore bank, C.I.A. espionage troopers such as corruptJohn Wiley & Sons Inc. are NOT SUBJECT to America’s Freedom of Information Act FOIA. The C.I.A. will simply refuse to confirm or deny the existence of the John Wiley & Sons university spyrecords, just as the C.I.A. shields torture and kidnapping of terrorismsuspects.


An obscure 35-year-old judicial doctrine called Glomarallows the C.I.A. to block all congressional and public inquiries into JohnWiley & Sons’ spy tools, the secret files,the budget, the number of cloak-and-dagger agents and the entire powerstructure of the John Wiley & Sons $hadow Company, a ‘valued asset’ for the C.I.A. and the recipient of a vast, green gusher of dollarsfrom a cold blooded U.S. government with very special interests.


Three quarters of the2010 C.I.A. budget of $80 billions went to private contractors, who make up 30 percentof the C.I.A. workforce. The hidden spy networks run by private U.S. companies are an integral part of U.S.government covert operations. Private U.S. contract spies are protected byprivate U.S. securityguards, making up a private U.S.underworld militia with secret flights and global reach.


Rotten to the core Peter BoothWiley is engaged inwitch hunts against opponents. "We will wipe anybody off the campus-map whois threatening the global interests of the United States" is chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s imperial ambition.Remember: Youare doomed if you don’t believe those who threaten to wipe you out. "MyDaddy served his presidents on every continent" is chairman PeterBooth Wiley’s ultra-nationalist mythology.


Willacademic book buyers shake an angry finger in the ugly American face? "Ouroverseas work took off during the Vietnam War when we began to watch studentsaround the world who were opposed to the war". Constant harassment belongsto right-wing activist Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s cultureof fear.


Inept John Wiley & Sons’chairman Peter Booth Wiley maintainsan absurdly high opinion of his own talents: "I consider myself one of the most gifted leadersthe C.I.A. ever had" he said while rubbing energetically his cirrhoticliver. He probably couldn’t manage a flea-circus. Nevertheless, people whodoubt his words can end up in secret C.I.A.-prisons or worse.


Criminalize spying atuniversities, arrest Peter Booth Wiley for crimes against peace and crimes against humanity!


Through perversion of power, U.S. academicbook publisher John Wiley & Sons spies on its own employees w/ C.I.A.methods; Wiley Inc. board of directors’ blatantly covers up the corporate misconduct of spymerchant cum science publisher John Wiley & Sons!


The criminal versatile John Wiley & Sons publishing empire is violating the right to privacy in the workplace under U.S. Constitution’s 4th Amendment as well as Chinese and EU privacylaws.


John Wiley &Sons (SOPA, PIPA and ACTA shark) commits felonies by secretly listening on employeeconversations at the workplace. John Wiley &Sons culture is a fang-out, snoop-snoop-snoop andmobbing culture. This nightmare is aided and abetted by Chairman Peter Booth Wiley and hisentourage, who engage vulnerable employees in the literary equivalent of trench warfare. Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s banality of evilcreates a ridiculous public-relations disaster for him and will have ruinousconsequences for untrustworthy John Wiley &Sons.


John Wiley & Sons treats hisnational and international subsidiaries like sweatshops. The once unimaginable magnitude of information John Wiley & Sons has available about each of its employees for discriminatory practicesis enough to create digital Doppelgangers of their employees.


Short of a stop-and-frisk-program,arrogant Chairman Peter Booth Wiley’s blanket surveillance treats law-abiding employees as suspects. He is inflicting intolerable misery upon all JohnWiley & Sons employees’ by bullying and harassing them with secretly obtainedinformation. His cruelty is embedded in America’s workingenvironment and the violent U.S.society as a whole.


Secretsurveillance is the message of Chairman PeterBooth Wiley’s printing-press.


Private spycompanies such as SPOKEO, FACTUAL and STRATFOR, so-called data-specialists, areidentifying every fact and rumor in the world of an employee, to find patternsin employees for John Wiley & Sons to observe and to exploit. The intrusive frisking byunderground contract spies, all John Wiley & Sons’ men, involves soul-theft and the surveillance of:


Employee’s home life;

Bedroom snooping includessexual preferences, deviations deemed ’unhealthy’ by JohnWiley & Sons puritans, divorces and iffemale employees had or were seeking an abortion;

Political activities as civil rights activists;socialist political leanings;

Race surveillance of Muslim and Arab employees;


Fingerprints from overseasemployees;

Friends, enemies or anyfailings;


Bank accounts;

Pressing needs for money;

Email contents;

The entire job history;

In which yearemployees bought (or lost) a house;

Computer communications such as what employees do on social networks and what theytalk about;

When and wherethey exercise;

What books ormagazines employees read;

What brand ofcoffee they drink and dieting habits;

If employees everdeclared bankruptcy;

Traffic ticketsand how many cars their employees have;

If taking pills for recreational purposes lead tocriminal activity of employees;

Medical recordsindicating a depression or addiction history of employees;

Public libraryrecords.


As the ultimate expression of corporate power, fascist John Wiley & Sons spies obsessively in the name ofthe Patriot Act on its employees!


After stealing thesecrets of its employees, John Wiley & Sons predictive analytics team makessense of the demographic data to figure out how John Wiley & Sons employeesmight think and behave and how its employees can be urged to hate themselves andhow John Wiley & Sons can hire and fire or demote and promote its employees.


In America,trade unions engaged in the protection of employee rights are considered asun-American. What’s more, John Wiley &Sons represses its employee’s effort to organize. But American corporationshave the right under the First Amendment to express their political point ofview just like people. John Wiley & Sons major points of view are to be loyalabove all to America’sglobal interest, indifference to its employees and exclusively devoted to producewealth for its shareholders, regardless of social consequences. So what kind ofpeople are John Wiley & Sons?Psychopaths!


Chairman Peter Booth Wiley subscribes 100 percent to the theory that all John Wiley & Sons’ employees are putting him in imminent physical danger: "I have this informationput together as soon as we acquire a new company." "…That’s in violation ofthe privacy laws but improves our security..." the compulsive talker was blurtingout as answer to my questions about mega monster John Wiley & Sons mismanaging new acquisitions and breaking the law.


The moral anarchy of Chairman Peter Booth Wiley is that he shootsfirst, and then says: It looked like he had a gun! With his security badge andgun, ChairmanPeter Booth Wiley can and willshoot anyone by whom he feels threatened.


Seeing its trustworthiness rating downgradedinto junk territory, John Wiley & Sonssnooping is in line with IKEA’s snoopingon its employees in France.


There are no lawsin the tell employees what information John Wiley & Sons has bought about them – and theEspionazis at John Wiley & Sons have no shame using the flood tide ofspy-data.


That is whatChairman Peter Booth Wiley called John Wiley & Sons’ “world order” - befitting for the publishing Hitlers of America!


According toChairman-third-rate Peter Booth Wiley, the level ofdistrust between John Wiley & Sons’ employees and John Wiley & Sons’ shareholders, board of directors and management has become so corrosive that it is becoming openlyantagonistic.


DaddyWiley’s provenance was New Jersey, where he hadgrown up in a rural two-roomhouse with concrete walls and an outdoor latrine shared with a trailer-parknext door – in a ghetto of white poverty pathology.But power-hungry ‘Jackpot Daddy’ would expertly and efficiently enriched himselfin Glimmerglass New York City with twenty percent of John Wiley & Sonsshares, which he grabbed [with a little help from Uncle Sam] from legitimateJohn Wiley & Sons Inc. shareholders. These were Daddy P.W.T. [Poor WhiteTrash] Wiley’s high-times of creamand dumplings, bamboozling and stealthy expanding his power - whileshamelessly breaking wind.


Crime pays fabulously in America!


Thismundane reality explains why reckless and ruthless ‘Daddy Wiley’, before hisforced retirement, was beggaring the career chances of John Wiley & Sons’ key employeeswith fat dossiers. "Our employee monitoring system pays instant results upto this day were we use more sophisticated methods". John Wiley & Sonshas become a human-rights crushing industrial publishing machine, smearingopponents and silencing dissenters.


With serious educationaldeficits, ChairmanPeter Booth Wileyand his low-IQ siblings are not the cream of educated society. Peter Booth Wiley had adisposition for being ‘out of the labor force’, and the best low-skill service job he ever a got on hisown was as a ‘less-than-full-time’ taxi driver. The Wileysiblings’ stupidity is notstaged. Daddy Wiley, who cursed his sons with all the profanity known by him,had explicitly forbidden his two sons to work at John Wiley & Sons!


Due to intemperance runningamok in his family, Taxi-driver, Inheritor, Chairman, Spy Peter Booth Wiley is usedto being kicked in the shins.


Oneof his siblings [the “fourth of three siblings”] is a degenerated idiot and waskicked out from college, because failure for him is not only an option but ahabit.Do Nothings and Know Nothings Bradford Wiley II is unable to compose acomprehensible sentence. Befitting for a lunatic member on the very, very sickboard of directors at John Wiley & Sons, Bradford Wiley II writing skills are at the lowend of public-school curriculum; his trembling hand produces scores ofmisspellings – unless, for example, he signs with an X.


Feeblemindedchildless sibling/director Bradford Wiley II was eligible for America’s Eugenic Board involuntary sterilization program,where genetic engineering was applied between the years 1933 [when Hitler cameto power in Germany;

he abdicated w/ a bullet to the head in 1945] and 1977. ‘Daddy Wiley’ hadmeasured the shape of his son’s ‘low-top head, very broad fromside to side’, and so became the family sociopath Bradford Wiley II from afamily of sociopaths a candidate for America’s ‘Human BettermentLeague’. Wealthy businessmen such as ‘Daddy Wiley’ financed the ‘Human Betterment’eugenics program and 70 percent of the inhumane sterilizations took place after1945.


Each time one opens a textbookfrom the perverted crime cartel John Wiley & Sons, one can hear the old creak of the U.S. eugenics internment campgates.


Theother two fertile Wiley brother/sister academic Wunderkinder [the Chairmansuffers from nocturnal emissions] of rather low mentality [the I.Q. of DeborahWiley’s son reversesdiscredited I.Q.hereditarianism]were left unfairly behind by "rising academic standards" andgraduated only because of the generous donations made by their"Daddy". In short, they are all blissfully detached from academicstandards.


Infact, the Wiley siblings are so demented they cannot figure out how in the worldthey got to be six hundred million dollars worth. How rich is intellectualdead-ender Peter Booth Wiley? In the c.o.c.k.-fighting circles of California’s Anderson Valley, where the landed c.o.c.k.-manfinds entertainment,blood-sport lover Peter Booth Wileycan affordto bet money for animal blood, for crying out loud.


John Wiley & Sons’ corporate social responsibility is written withanimal bloodand for its Chairman Peter Booth Wiley dollars mean more than to themeanest w.h.o.r.e. He is craving for ever more money with the eyes of a herringon ice and submits even fake travel-expense bills. And if he could just dressproperly, he would not wear pimp suits and fasten his French cuffs with safetypins.


The intruder Wiley clan, who placed their loyalties with theC.I.A., is now entrenched at John Wiley & Sons’ board ofdirectors, but John Wiley & Sons’ employees around the world can affect - how to put it - thequality of stay for the “sixth” Wileygeneration at John Wiley & Sons.


If you don’t look closely you might confuse one name with the other, perhaps evenconfuse the role-playing Wiley with the other real Wiley. The Wileycountry-bums [Bootleggers for Generations] from a bad place in New Jersey werenamesakes to the New Yorker publishing family Wiley [Knowledge for Generations].


Accordingto straw-man Chairman Peter Booth Wiley, the reason why the bootlegger Wiley clanwas able to grab & keep control of the publisher John Wiley & Sons liesin the bootlegger family’s “small gene pool”. Or shall we say thebootlegger Wiley clan is the unlucky winner in the genetic lottery for anextremely “small gene pool”?Certainly there is a moral leprosy built into the DNA of the bootlegger Wiley clan. Although the Chairman never mentioned incest for the “smallgene pool” of his bootleggerclan, he didn’t rule it out!


No greater fools ever came,and two generations of bootlegger Wiley imbecilesmasquerading as publishing heirs on John Wiley & Sons’ board of directors are enough to leave Wiley Inc. with a big disgustingcredibility gap.


Getlost, you parasitic Bling-Bling idiots!


Butthat is not all: "My ancestors were British royals" said theuncrowned king of role-players and pointed to some drawings of ‘royals’ on the walls ofhis San Franciscohome. Theaging paranoid Chairman wants out of his inferior criminal underclass identity.What he wants is a fake entrée into aristocracy and piggyback on royals. Or didChairman Peter Booth Wiley mistake his bootlegger family tree with the restroomdoors in Disneyland royally marked ‘Prince‘ and ‘Princess‘?


Theunmasked Wiley country bums originated from old convict stock which England threw into America in the 17th century.


There you have it, the hush-hush Wiley familyskeleton: the profane bootlegger Wiley clan is inventor oftheir own publishing & royal genealogy.


Chairman-wannabe-royalPeter Booth Wiley was draggedup by rude,unpleasant, psychopathic parents of criminal origins - so let’s just say fauxroyals! PeterBooth Wileymight be as p.e.r.v.e.r.s.e as some British royals, but this is as far as royalBritish relations go. Maybe Peter Booth Wiley, the pinstriped effluence froman ex-bootlegger family, had a royal s.y.p.h.i.l.i.s? Signaling the depth of hislongings for a blue-blooded ancestry, Chairman Peter Booth Wiley, who smelledvaguely fishy [although he is using fart spray for deodorant], scratched hisfrom blue h.e.m.o.r.r.h.o.i.d.s ridden royal rear end with a long sigh ofrelief again and again and again!


Anyone can be blue blooded inun-exceptional America.


That’s America’s exceptionalism!


Book readers, call for vengeance, and use thepower of negative branding, use the power of an online petition and the powerof your wallet. Take the gloves off, stop the use of Wiley textbooks in theclass room and bring down the snoop-snoop-snoop perpetrators at John Wiley & Sons.


Run amok and throw a monkey-wrench withballistic ferocity into their Gutenberg press.


Bringme the scalp of C.I.A.contractor John Wiley & Sons!
