When 'Holden Days' was released, Don Loffler had no idea that he would receive many new images from readers generally and, in particular, from the relatives and friends of those whose images appear in the book. In addition, he kept locating new images through his own research. 'Holden Snapshots' is the result of all this.

When his father dies, a young bumper inherits the bloody family business Holden is more than a bill collector. He’s a killer. His father came to New York from Belgium to spend his life driving cars for the Aladdin Fur Company. But Holden has more ambition than his old man, and rises to the rank of bumper—a violent collector of debts that cannot be paid. But when his father dies, Holden departs for Europe, to live in seclusion until his money runs out. And it’s then that his father’s real business comes to call. The old man was a bumper too, but he killed for a slightly higher class of criminal. And now that he’s gone, his employers want his son to take his place. Holden would like to to refuse, but murder is in his blood, and no man can resist his family legacy.

Holden's Performance by award-winning author Murray Bail is the story of Holden Shadbolt, a guileless and matter-of-fact innocent as he passes through the cities and landscape of Australia. His reassuring silent presence and photographic memory make him useful to men of power and women who appear to need his protection. He is surrounded by larger than life figures whose exploits and adventures Holden follows—ex-Corporal Frank 'Bloodnut' McBee, the scrap dealer who woos his mother; his uncle Vern, a shortsighted proofreader who likes facts and eating newspaper with is breakfast cereal; and the crippled artist Harriet, whose twists and curves appeal to Holden as he holds to his own unswervingly straight lines.

Christopher Wilder was about as bad as they get. A serial killer and predator, he first came to the attention of police in Sydney when as a teenager in 1963 he was charged with rape. As a young adult he relocated to Florida, USA. Wilder plied his vile and deadly trade on two continents and did so undetected for more than twenty years. He was a chameleon and a predator with a modus operandi refined over the decades, luring young teenage girls with the promise of a career as a photographic model. His final flourish was a six-week spree of abduction, sexual assault and murder crisscrossing the USA and earning him the top spot on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. Wilder could have been stopped a few times in his evil career - but he wasn't. In addition to his many crimes in the US, he is now also a prime suspect for the infamous Wanda Beach murders - one of Australia's most notorious unsolved crimes. The Snapshot Killer explores how a monster was able to hide in plain sight and tells the tragic story of the many victims - at least twelve, but likely more - whose lives Wilder destroyed, with consequences that continue to resonate to this day.

Caption with photo: "Willie Carter (right) and Kyle Blair (center) crawled for more than three hours to escape through a ventilation shaft from the Holden 22 mine in Logan County. Eighteen others who waited to be rescued from the fire that broke out on March 8, 1960, were found dead days later. Island Creek Coal President Raymond Salvati, whose father died in a mine explosion in 1907, provided encouragement by going into the mine during the unsuccessful rescue. One miner was found with a penciled note to his wife. He told her he loved her more than she would ever know and to 'take care of the kids and raise them to serve the Lord.' The dead miners left 16 widows and 77 children."
