The sensational true story of how a bank robber killed a man in a wild shootout, sparking a national debate around gun control and the death penalty. On July 24, 1964, twenty-four-year-old Matthew Kerry Smith disguised himself with a mask and a Beatle wig, hoisted a semi-automatic rifle, then held up a bank in North York, Ontario. The intelligent but troubled son of a businessman and mentally ill mother, Smith was a navy veteran with a young Indigenous wife and a hazy plan for violent revolution. Outside the bank, Smith was confronted by Jack Blanc, a former member of the Canadian and Israeli armies, who brandished a revolver. During a wild shootout, Blanc was killed, and Smith escaped — only to become the object of the largest manhunt in the history of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force. Dubbed “The Beatle Bandit,” Smith was eventually captured, tried, and sentenced to hang. His murderous rampage had tragic consequences for multiple families and fuelled a national debate about the death penalty, gun control, and the insanity defence.

“Dark, edgy, and riveting, Vanish by Dawn by J.D. Wells is a vivid white knuckles of the mind story told by a radically disturbed man. Written from the gut, the novel captures Frankie Milligan’s desperate attempt to overcome the chaos, madness, and despair in his life. Reading Vanish by Dawn is an unforgettable experience, rising from the same lyrical underworld as Bukowski, Shelby, Jr., and Burroughs.” ---B. I. Turpen Frankie Milligan has a serious problem. He periodically wakes up at dawn lying in the same deserted field clutching an empty bottle of Grey Goose vodka. He is convinced that during the night he was transported to an alternative universe where he morphed into a famous sports figure or rock star. Frankie thinks these inexplicable dreams are real. One night he truly believed he was Lou Gehrig giving his famous farewell speech in Yankee Stadium. In another dream, he became Jim Morrison stoned on opium while living in Paris with his girlfriend. A prominent psychiatrist has the daunting task of eliminating these episodes from Frankie’s life before he is forced to commit him to a mental institution. Vanish by Dawn is an intense psychological drama filled with many unexpected, and bizarre twists and turns. As the narrative unfolds, Frankie struggles to maintain his sanity, and function normally as he becomes increasingly unable to distinguish the difference between the “Real World” and the “Flash World” of his horrifying nightmares.

There's only one book that ever truly got inside the Beatles and this is it. The landmark, worldwide bestseller that has grown with the Beatles ever since. During 1967 and 1968 Hunter Davies spent eighteen months with the Beatles at the peak of their powers as they defined a generation and rewrote popular music. As their only ever authorised biographer he had unparalleled access - not just to John, Paul, George and Ringo but to friends, family and colleagues. There when it mattered, he collected a wealth of intimate and revealing material that still makes this the classic Beatles book - the one all other biographers look to. Hunter Davies remained close with the band and as such has had access to more information over the years. This 40th anniversary edition contains new material which has never been revealed before, from the author's archives and from the Beatles themselves, that will bring new insights to their legend.
