Natalie Queiroz was eight months pregnant when she was stabbed by her partner in the most vicious attack imaginable. In the space of nine minutes, and in broad daylight, Natalie was stabbed 24 times with a carving knife. She suffered horrific wounds to her lungs, liver, stomach and uterus, whilst the knife missed her baby by a margin of two millimetres, before the arteries in her wrists were methodically severed by the hooded attacker she finally realised was her partner and the father of her unborn child. After heroic intervention by passers-by and police, the attack was brought to an end, but her ordeal was not over. An air ambulance rescue was launched, and against all medical odds, Natalie and her baby survived - but not without life-changing physical and emotional damage. Still Standing is the story of one life-shattering event - what came before that fateful day, what happened on it and how one woman and her baby survived to rebuild and heal together after it. At once a shocking story of evil, manipulation and violence and a truly moving reminder that a life can be pieced back together, no matter how bad the damage, this book will empower and inspire anyone who has ever faced true adversity to rise up and stand tall. 1.

From the old days of mobsters in smoky barrooms plotting to gun down their rivals, to the new age of ordinary people hiring contract killers through the Dark Web, this book depicts the history of assassins and how they work. While movies portray assassins as glamorous, wealthy, and full of mystery, the sober truth is often quite different. The number of homicides credited to contract killers each year is staggering, and on the rise: business people killing their rivals, organized gang war kills, honor killings, and even cold-blooded kills between spouses. In Blood Money: The Method and Madness of Assassins, RJ Parker documents over a dozen infamous cases of professional assassins including Richard Kuklinski (The Ice Man), Charles Harrelson (Natural Born Killer), and Vincent Coll (Mad Dog). Included is also a riveting foreword written by Dr. Scott Bonn, providing his reasoning why an assassin is not considered a serial killer in the professional community. RJ Parker PhD is an award-winning and best-selling true crime author and publisher of RJ Parker Publishing. He has written 26 true crime books sold in over 100 countries. He holds certifications in serial crime and criminal profiling. Parker amazes his audiences with top notch writing and idealist research. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Don Kline.
