The Black Widow
How One Woman Got Justice for Her Murdered Brother
By Lee-Anne Cartier
The Black Widow almost got away with murder. But then her sister-in-law became suspicious…
The infamous Black Widow case shocked the nation. An average-looking suburban housewife carefully staged her husband’s ‘suicide’. At first it looked like she might get away with murder, but then her sister-in-law, Lee-Anne Cartier, became suspicious and started gathering evidence and presenting it to the police. Unfortunately they didn’t believe it was enough to get a conviction and signed the death off as suicide. Lee-Anne then drove the case at the inquest and a finding of ‘No proof of suicide’ was pivotal in getting the police to reopen the case. Helen Milner, who became known as the Black Widow, was eventually convicted of murder and is now serving out her sentence in Arohata Prison. This book tells how Lee-Anne persevered and put together many strands of information to crack the case wide open.

Effective Security Management
By Charles A. Sennewald
This book, now in its 6th edition is a complete reference on security management in one book. It is well presented, easy to understand and provides a very good introduction to security management for all security personnel. Sennewald also looks at security mismanagement giving the reader some examples which I am sure those already in security management will recognise.
The 6th edition includes more recent information on technology items (computers, smartphones etc) however anyone reading earlier editions, particularly the 5th edition published in 2011 will be pleased with the way it is written and the information that is included.
This book is often used by tutors in the security management field as a mandatory text. It has traditionally forms part of mandatory reading for those sitting the ASIS International CPP exam.
