This book has a little bit of a True Crime Story in it. It is hiding between the me me me, look at me, look what I did, oh I am so hot going to make this man want me so I can convict him stories.

Lots of picture of herself, some are clam shots and others are look at me I am a serious investigator shots. Don't waste you money or time with this book.

Detailed account of how one of Indianapolis' biggest murder cases, the 1971 LaSalle Street Murders, was solved by a local reporter.
