Beschreibung

Three riveting accounts of horrific crimes and the twisted minds behind them by an Edgar Award-winning author, in one volume. A father's ultimate betrayal, a savage killing spree that terrorized Los Angeles, and the brutal slaying of a rich man's college-aged daughter. In this heart-stopping true crime collection, New York Times-bestselling author Darcy O'Brien uncovers the dark underside of the American dream. Murder in Little Egypt: Dr. John Dale Cavaness selflessly attended to the needs of his small, southern Illinois community. But when Cavaness was charged with the murder of his son Sean in December 1984, a radically different portrait of the physician and surgeon emerged. Throughout the three decades he had basked in the admiration and respect of the people of Little Egypt, Cavaness was privately terrorizing his family, abusing his employees, and making disastrous financial investments. In this New York Times bestseller, as more and more grisly details come to light, so too does rural America's heritage of blood and violence become clear. The Hillside Stranglers: For weeks, the body count of sexually violated, brutally murdered young women escalated. With increasing alarm, Los Angeles newspapers headlined the deeds of a serial killer they named the Hillside Strangler. But not until January 1979, more than a year later, would the mysterious disappearance of two university students near Seattle lead police to the arrest of a security guard-the handsome, charming, fast-talking Kenny Bianchi-and the discovery that the strangler was not one man but two. The Hillside Stranglers is the disturbing portrait of a city held hostage by fear and a pair of psychopaths whose lust was as insatiable as their hate. A Dark and Bloody Ground: On a sweltering evening in August 1985, three men breached Roscoe Acker's alarm and security systems, stabbed his daughter to death, and made off with over $1.9 million in cash. The killers were part of a hillbilly gang led by Sherry Sheets Hodge, a former prison guard, and her husband, lifetime criminal Benny Hodge. The stolen money came in handy shortly afterward, when they used it to lure Kentucky's most flamboyant lawyer, Lester Burns, into representing them. "The smell of wet, coal-laden earth, white lightning, and cocaine-driven sweat rises from these marvelously atmospheric-and compelling-pages" (Kirkus Reviews).
