            The Missing Cryptoqueen

            175 countries, four billion dollars, one scam- the inside story of the world's biggest crypto con and the woman who got away with it. In 2016, on stage at Wembley Arena in front of thousands of adoring fans, Dr Ruja Ignatova promised her followers a financial revolution. The futu...re, she said, belonged to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. And the Oxford-educated, self-styled cryptoqueen vowed that she had invented the Bitcoin Killer. OneCoin would not only earn its investors untold fortunes, it would change the world. By March 2017 more than $4 billion had been invested in OneCoin in dozens of countries, from the USA to Pakistan, Hong Kong to Yemen, and the UK to Brazil. But by October 2017, Ruja Ignatova had disappeared, and it slowly became clear that her revolutionary cryptocurrency was not all it seemed. In The Missing Cryptoqueen, Jamie Bartlett tells the unbelievable story of the rise, disappearance and fall of Dr Ruja Ignatova, setting out on a globe-crossing investigation into the criminal underworlds, corrupt governments and the super-rich. Along the way, he reveals a very modern tale of intrigue, techno-hype and herd madness that allowed OneCoin to become a million person pyramid scheme - where, at the top, investors were making millions and, at the bottom, people were putting their livelihoods at risk. It's the inside story of the smartest and biggest scam of the 21st Century - and the genius behind it, who is still on the run.

            A Witness of Fact: the peculiar case of chief forensic pathologist Colin Manock

            A Witness of Fact: the peculiar case of chief forensic pathologist Colin Manock (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            For nearly three decades, Dr Colin Manock was in charge of South Australia's forensic pathology services, and played a vital role within the state's criminal justice system- in cases of unexpected or unexplained death, it was his job to determine when a person took their final br...eath and whether they had died naturally or as a result of something more sinister. Throughout his long career, he performed more than 10,000 autopsies and gave expert scientific evidence in court that helped secure approximately 400 criminal convictions. But, remarkably, Manock, a self-described 'witness of fact', did not have the necessary training for such a senior, specialist role, and he made serious errors in several major cases - with tragic consequences, including the apparently wrongful imprisonment of innocent people. The full extent of his wrongdoing and the exact number of cases impacted by it remains a mystery more than twenty-five years after he retired, due to the continuing refusal of those in power to heed calls to launch a formal inquiry into his career. In this book, Rooke examines several of Manock's most controversial cases, and speaks with many of his former colleagues, people directly impacted by his flawed work, and legal experts. At its heart, A Witness of Fact is about how an entire legal system has failed badly, how unsafe verdicts have been swept under the carpet - and how forensic evidence that is admitted in courts of law in Australia and across the world is dubious more often than we would like to think. 'A Witness of Fact is the untold and downright bizarre true story of Colin Manock. Rooke has left no file or transcript unread, no stone unturned, and his work is a testimony to journalistic vigilance in the face of forensic science and an unquestioning legal system. Best of all, Rooke has done all the hard work for us, and in lieu of an inquiry, we have this careful and fascinating portrait of a man, his ego, and the danger between the two.' -Anna Krien 'Drew
