‘Best True Crime’ Series

Volume 1 includes . . .

  • Death by Fire:  Psychologists have long recognized there can be a fine but critical line between the devoted firefighter who loves being part of a heroic, life-saving team and the arsonist who loves starting fires to gleefully watch the destruction, murder and mayhem. Polar opposites. Yet, in California in the 1980s, these two personalities were inside the same person.
  • Killer Power Couple:  Readers of true crime stories are accustomed to learning about deranged, sadistic people who live secret lives consumed with malicious and violent fantasies and desires. But it’s very rare for two of these monstrous people to find each other, marry, and go on a joint torture and killing spree.
  • The Vampire of Sacramento:  An inordinately disturbed child with an affinity for arson and killing animals becomes a young man with erectile dysfunction that stems from his anger toward women. Too soon, his whirlwind of extremely deviant behavior erupts into multiple homicides in which he drinks his victims’ blood and brutalizes his victims’ bodies.
  • Who Killed Mama Edna?:  Belief in the spirit world can be powerful. Whether it’s the power of faith, the power of evil, or the power of suggestion is a matter for endless discussion and debate. But one night in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, that belief took a sudden, frightening and fatal turn between two friends who had happily known each other for years

Volume 2 includes . . .

  • Killer Carer:  We are never more vulnerable as adults than when we are medically incapacitated and require the constant care of another person. But when a professional carer is also a deeply flawed, traumatized, and remorseless person willing to do anything to cover her tracks of wrongdoing, she can become a killer carer.
  • The Truth Will Out:  DNA technology is a miraculous tool for crime investigation. Genetic science is an unbiased and incorruptible finder of facts. It finds facts related to a criminal investigation, and it also finds old family secrets. Sometimes an old family secret is that a relative is also a murderer.
  • Navy Wife:  Police inform the wife of a naval officer that her husband has been found dead from multiple gunshots in his car. A young man known as a rising star in the Navy and a great husband and father was murdered for no apparent reason. But soon the investigation led to a web of lies, betrayals and multiple false identities.
  • Brutal Teen:  In 2013 in Davis, California a very sweet grandmother and grandfather were stabbed over sixty times each and bizarrely mutilated while sleeping in their beds. The murderer later said the act “Felt amazing” and was “Pure happiness.” Yet, inconceivably, after his conviction a battle remains to keep him from being released from prison.

  • The Night Nurse:  A woman’s mental health begins to spiral downward after her family rejects her sexual orientation. Her descent accelerates from wanting to take her own life, to hearing God’s voice telling her to take many other people’s lives.
  • Nameless Murder:  The identity of a murdered child has eluded police for four decades. Even DNA from her body has failed to yield a connection to her murderer, or even to who the victim’s family is. As the web of known DNA is ever expanding, this mystery can not last much longer.

Volume 4 includes . . .

Death in the Desert: A girl walking to high school in Las Vegas was found dead after being viciously sexually assaulted.

Soon, not one, but two murders were solved.

A Nun Killer: In 1981 an elderly nun was murdered in her bedroom. In 1992 a young man was executed for her murder. That much is certain. What is not certain is whether the convicted and executed man was really guilty.

Just a Drifter: When a twenty-two year old woman goes missing while walking her dog it doesn’t take long for solid clues to lead to a senior citizen who is a drifter. But police can’t help wondering whether a drifter in his sixties has finally committed his first murder, or whether he’s previously committed several others.

Disappearance in Sunrise City: When an eleven year old girl goes missing and is found dead days later, it’s odd how quickly the case goes cold and then stays cold for decades. Where was the murderer all those years and what was he doing every day? Maybe, he was a first responder who was supposed to help find missing children.

Mother’s Lack of Mercy:  Any normal parent’s worst fear is having harm come to one of your children. None of us can really even imagine having two children who came to be known as Jane Doe #4873 and Jane Doe #6607 in separate incidents that were a year apart. Even more unimaginable is their own mother being responsible for both of their murders.

When Evil Meets Evil:  One of the highest positions of trust in our society – some would say sacred trust – is that of a priest. A man who is supposed to represent the best of human nature, the model of moral and righteous conduct, especially to those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable. When that level of trust is repeatedly and systematically violated it can trigger resentment and even outrage. As it turns out, not only for regular people in the community, but also for the most hardened and violent prison inmates.

‘Til Death Do Us Part:  Love triangles are relatively common. Thankfully, murders are much less common. But sometimes the web of lies between multiple people is so incredible that when someone finally admits guilt, it’s actually only the beginning of the story, not the end.

He decided that the best place for her was a local facility, but did not expect to hear his mother say, “You can’t make me.” She was right.

Paying the Price:  Two troubled teenagers fall in love and get married. When one of them admits her ambition is to one day become a murderer and even a serial killer, you know it’s a story that will end tragically. She accomplished one of her goals and, but for poor marksmanship, nearly achieved both.

Seduce Marry Kill:  It’s usually a good idea for any senior citizen to have a hobby, especially if it involves meeting new people and forming new relationships. The exception is Melissa, who only wanted to meet older men so she could kill them and collect their pensions.

Their joint malice escalates into multiple murders, but she still professes her love for him on the day she goes to the electric chair.

A Time to Hate: Every hate crime is ugly. But the case of Anthony Walker is incredibly painful because of the wonderful person he already was at just eighteen.

Volume 8 includes . . .

A Father’s Betrayal: Perhaps no crime is more tragic than that involving the death of a child. But the tragedy is enormously amplified when it was completely foreseeable and avoidable. Especially when authorities were repeatedly notified and begged to do something to prevent the inevitable, yet did nothing.

The Last Breath: When most of us think of the most prolific serial killers we think of grubby lifetime criminals who thrived in the shadows. But perhaps there is a name you’ve never heard before and perhaps he killed over 200 people while being well paid and wearing a clean, crisp medical uniform?

Sex and Murder: A secret sex life, a fed up wife, and reliance on untrustworthy friends led a conniving husband right into the prison cell where he belonged.

Unrequited Love: It’s always a heartbreaking situation when a person loves someone who doesn’t love them back. But few could have guessed how far one young man would go to avoid commitment.
