Shelves: true-crime
This is a collection of short stories. Some you may have heard of before this. Phelps' usual fair is long and detailed so if you are just in the mood for something quick, these stories were all interesting.

I enjoyed this collection of baddies by M. William Phelps and went through it in good time. Some of it was familiar from reading prior books, well-remembered cases that still deliver shivers after years have passed. A good mix of 6 stories, part remembered and part that were new-to-me crimes to dig into. There was some new information, and I always like hearing more later on about a story I've read. The only bad thing is that it made me want to go back and read his books all over again. That wou ...more

Phelps brings interesting cases

This is a good collection of cases in one book. The most interesting part to me was the last one about Dr. Henry Lee and his forensic science experiences.

Fresh material for this true crime fan.

This extraordinary book is what it claims to be: a collection of true crime cases. All of it was new ground for me and very enjoyable reading. It kept me returning to Google names and cases, searching for photos of victims and perpetrators and information about final outcomes.

If I had proofread this book, I would have made at least 41 corrections.

Was mediocre.

Could have better. Have read most of Mr Phelps books and this was not one of my favorites. Perfect Poison was first one I read and that one was so good I read it twice!

“[1]  I do not want to sound as though I am in any way blaming Judy Nilan for what happened to her, but I want to say something here to any female reading this book. If you are a jogger/walker, I beg of you to take a different route each time you head out for a run, even if you change it up just a little bit. No matter where you live, no matter how safe you think you are, there could be a psychopath like Scott Deojay lurking in the shadows, watching you run/walk by his house or place of employment every single day, and as each day passes, he might become more and more obsessed with you to the point where he needs to act out on the twisted fantasies flowing through his mind. Don’t give him that satisfaction. Take a different route. And also, please check the sex offender’s registry in your area with a quick Google search and find out where the sex offenders in your neighborhood live. Believe me, no matter where you live, there are sex offenders near you. Again, I am in no way blaming Judy Nilan for what happened to her by saying this, but let us learn something from Judy’s brutal murder.” 0 likes
