Dark Deeds: Serial Killers, Stalkers and Domestic Homicides

By Susan Fleet

Author Susan Fleets writes individual stories that will shock, surprise and hold your attention throughout the book. A dozen stories, each unique, gruesome and haunting, introduce the reader to some of the worst crimes ever committed, giving insight into the motivations or lack thereof, by the senseless slaughter caused by ‘man's inhumanity to man’.

The author takes us into the mind of Belle, who was pretty but weighed 200 p
Fleet's Dark Deeds is a fascinating account of some of the most horrifying serial killers ever to live. The Boston Strangler was believed to be Albert DeSalvo, but was he the real murderer? Could there have been more than one killer? Then, there are the stalkers or an obsessed fan. I remember the death of Rebecca Schaeffer and how it had affected so many.

This is an interesting collection of true crime stories. There is a good mix of older and modern accounts. Some I was familiar with, others I hadn't heard of.

The writing is clear and precise, with a journalist feel. Each chapter is relatively short, highlighting the specifics of the case without a lot of in-depth detail or commentary. At times the writing felt a little dry and didn't spark as much emotion as the subject matter should have demanded. But it's perfect for those interested in crime

I thought this book was just ok. There were several chapters I liked better than others including the one about The Boston Strangler and the celebrity murders and stalkers. I liked it well enough to read Volume Two which I am going to read next.

This is actually stories from a blog and they aren't very long, but they are interesting and well written. The author goes back in history to get some of the stories and they are very interesting.

Music & Mayhem is my game. Started my trumpet career in my teens, got into the mayhem later. My print journalist father taught me how to play pool in the police station. Maybe that's how I discovered my dark side.

After gigging on trumpet in the Boston area for many years (while teaching at Brown University and Berklee College of Music), I moved to New Orleans, which became the setting for my
