House of Mystery True Crime History



Palmistry, or hand analysis is a powerful metaphysical tool. This ancient science combines a tangible grid of verifiable psychic energy with the accuracy of astrology. As the age of Aquarius progresses the art of palmistry is making a resurgence and is on the path towards regaining its rightful place in as a dignified and esteemed science once again. The ancient and respected Vedic literature spoke highly of both palmistry and astrology. It declared them the sciences of the “learned and self-controlled” (Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, part 3) The Vedas also predicted a coming “Golden Age” coinciding exactly with ancient Mayan future forecasts.Although astrology and palmistry are related, a hand readers approach is much different. The hand is seen as a living tool through which the eternal soul, encased within the material body, speaks its message. Therefore to read a hand is to gain a complete understanding of a person’s emotional, creative, spiritual, health and career direction. Unlike astrology, a palmist does not need to know a birth time. The hand itself speaks visibly and concretely like a road map. The lines are created by both brainwaves and planetary influences. Classical palmists thought that the lines contain a planetary energy flowing within them that they named “The astral fluid”. Even today we understand that the brain acts as chemical/electrical computer. The age of Uranian technology is now upon us, and it is symbolic that hand is again being studied seriously as the computer printout of the individual souls journey on Earth.

To all appearances, Dennis Rader was a model citizen in the small town of Park City, Kansas, where he had lived with his family almost his entire life. He was a town compliance officer, a former Boy Scout leader, the president of his church congregation, and a seemingly ordinary father and husband. But Rader's average life belied the existence of his dark, sadistic other self: he was the BTK serial killer. The self-named BTK (for Bind, Torture, Kill) had terrorized Wichita for thirty-one years, not only with his brutal, sexually motivated crimes, but also through his taunting, elusive communications with the media and law enforcement. In 1974, BTK committed his first murders -- torturing and strangling four members of the Otero family -- and wrote the police an audacious letter declaring his responsibility for the Oteros' deaths and labeling himself, for the first time, BTK. Thus he established a pattern -- stalking and killing a series of ten victims, then bragging and claiming ownership of his crimes -- that ended in 1991 but left law enforcement confounded and the public with deeply troubling memories. Until, that is, he resurfaced in 2004 with another string of letters that would finally lead to his arrest. Drawing from extensive interviews with Rader's pastor, congregation, detectives, and psychologists who worked the case, and from his unnervingly de-tailed thirty-two-hour confession, bestselling author Stephen Singular delves into the disturbing life and crimes of BTK to explore fully -- for the first time -- the most dangerous and complex serial killer of our generation and the man who embodied, at once, astonishing extremes of normality and abnormality. In Unholy Messenger, Singular recounts the year prior to Rader's arrest, in which the BTK killer reemerged, and the aftermath. Woven throughout are the details of his crimes, elaborate schemes, and bids for public attention, and the wrenching impact his deception had on his family, church, and heartland community.
