Berserk: The Shocking Life and Death of Edwin Valero – Book Review

Everyone knows that Boxing has a dark side but have you heard the story of Edwin Valero?  Probably not as he is not a well known athlete outside of the boxing realm and its not a well known case of true crime either.  Don Stradley takes you on a fast paced journey of the battle to be a recognized boxer from Venezuela to his fall from grace.  its a story of intrigue and murder that will keep you wanting to flip the pages.  I am not a big boxing fan and I can count the amount of times I have watched a boxing match on a hand or two but this book was riveting for me.

Episode 20 – Kidnappings

 

On this episode we hit the topic Kidnappings.  We cover three stories and also do a quick review of The Girls Are Gone a novel.

The Not so Magic School Bus

This may seem like a horrible story about the largest kidnapping in US history but stick with me. It’s really about being a hero no matter what your age.
