“Psycho-sexual satisfaction can be derived from the thrill of the kill, the thrill of getting over or perhaps wanting to torture. Sex crime is a power crime,” said criminal profiling specialist Dr. Julie Salzano, who was part of a fascinating panel discussion called THE EVIL MEN DO: Inside The Mind Of The Sexual Predator, at the Mid-Manhattan Library (NYPL), co-sponsored by the New York Public Library and the New York Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America on August 17, 2011.

Mystery fiction lovers came out in droves to hear Dr. Salzano and authors Henry Chang (Chinatown Beat, Year of The Dog, Red Jade), David Levien (City of the Sun, Where The Dead Lay, Thirteen Million Dollar Pop, Wormwood and SWAGBELLY: A Novel for Today’s Gentleman and Lyndsay Faye (The Gods of Gotham, Dust and Shadow), share their inspiration for the characters they create, what their process of delving into the mind of the sexual predator is and how they choose to decompress. Ladykillerco-author Meredith Anthony moderated the panel at an entertaining and enlightening clip.

Henry Chang, a New York native who spent his formative years on the streets of Chinatown, drew inspiration for his first book in his CHINATOWN TRILOGY series chronicling the beat of NYPD Detective Jack Yu, from the people he knew.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt - Oldest son Maddox is now 10

Posted by AC Team on Wednesday, 17 August 2011

People Magazine's upcoming feature on the family of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie show a happy, growing family.

AC Team has interviewed Angelina and Brad for assignments for its other outlets over the years and has found them to be among the most courteous and intelligent actors in Hollywood.

The upcoming article in People feature images of their oldest son Maddox, now ten, and his siblings. Here is an advance copy of the cover and excerpts of the article, courtesy of People:

They've munched on crickets in Cambodia and surfed the waves in Cancun, but for the six children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, life in the boisterous family is as much about everyday bonding as it is the big adventure.

"The children are always playing, jumping on each other and sharing fun moments," a source tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "They share a special bond."

Leading the pack: oldest son Maddox, 10, who "is almost like a teenager now, the way he understands things," says another source. "He's grown up very quickly."

But his younger siblings are rapidly growing up, too. Six-year-old Zahara and her 5-year-old sister Shiloh are especially close, while 7-year-old Pax "has become more independent in the past year," says an insider. And with twins Knox and Vivienne now 3 – they help pack their own suitcases! – the family is settling into a lower-key, if still decidedly adventurous, rhythm.

"Now that all the children are older, things have calmed down a bit in the household," says...
