William Phelps, someone tries to pin a gruesome murder on a horse, infamous serial killer Son of Sam shows us his true evil nature in a series of lost letters this psychopath never wanted you to see, and Sesame Streets Big Bird In this riveting collection of true crime stories from the files of award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author of 32 books, M. William Phelps, someone tries to pin a gruesome murder on a horse, infamous serial killer Son of Sam shows us his true evil nature in a series of lost letters this psychopath never wanted you to see, and Sesame Streets Big Bird comes home to find a dead woman on his estate. These shocking stories join several others that only a master storyteller like Phelps can bring to life for readers. The six stories in this collection have been published in various print and digital places but have never been brought together in one terrifying, mysterious read. Phelps updates each case. One story involves a young man who believes he's figured out the perfect way to commit a murder after binge-watching "Forensic Files." In this opening tale, a Massachusetts man is stalked by a hired killer because of the information he holds in the case of insurance scam gone bad, resulting in savage murder. Next up is the story of a restaurant owner and her husband, enjoying a calm, peaceful life in the Berkshires, with all the charm and tranquility New England has to offer, until a bloody trail inside a barn leads to a gruesome discovery and a familys deepest, darkest secrets are exposed. Phelps also takes readers behind the scenes of his hit Investigation Discovery series "Dark Minds," revealing his investigative secrets with an intimate look at those serialkiller cold cases that still haunt Phelps today. Finally, as another bonus, Phelps, who author Vincent Bugliosi called one of Americas best true crime journalists, heads out to meet renowned forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee in a narrative interview that reveals Lees ingenious and humorous take on life, his crime-scene philosophy, and the ways in which he deals with the brutality of the work he does.

    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 I enjoyed this collection of baddies by M. William Phelps and went through it in good time.

    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. This is a collection of short stories.

    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.

    Great insight from author! Also interview with Dr Lee! It was really great to hear the authors opinion and in his own voice since I haven’t watched his shows on tv. All great stories!

    True crime thriller Phelps has done it again. He has written another true crime masterpiece. In this book he discusses cases from his television show called Dark Minds. He gives excellent details and behind the scenes information on the filming of his show. I love his books and his show as well as the ID Channel. Highly recommend this book to all true crime readers.

    Non Stop Read! I am a fan of Mr. Phelps way back to Snapped and Dark Minds. After reading this I can see why he is so passionate about true crime. He's an excellent writer and I can't wait to read his other true crime books! Non Stop Read! I am a fan of Mr. Phelps way back to Snapped and Dark Minds.

    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.

    Previously, I had a long drawn out review, because there were so many issues with this book I felt I had to point them all out individually. But now I's much rather cut to the chase. The first 3 stories were semi-interesting, but nowhere near riveting, as stated in the Amazon synopsis. Some facts were wrong, some were left out, and the number of editing errors was a mess. Several places Phelps - or maybe his editor - made a note for him to go back and fill in the blank, but never went back! Exam Previously, I had a long drawn out review, because there were so many issues with this book I felt I had to point them all out individually. But now I's much rather cut to the chase.

Several places Phelps - or maybe his editor - made a note for him to go back and fill in the blank, but never went back! Example: "...Troop D, which is what? An impound lot? Please identify for the reader." WOW. Unfortunately, the rest of the book, which is from 37% on, is tedious as all get out to trudge through. The part about David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz and his barely there prison friendship with serial killer Gary Evans, was dull and could have been left out. The chapter about killer Ned Snelgrove was ridiculous and frustrating; Phelps says his job isn't to solve cases yet he acts as if he's out to prove how capable he would be as an investigator by slinging together real evidence with circumstantial. Exact same for the story on the Eastbound Strangler. It took me about a week to make it to 82% and by then I could take it no more. His hero worship of Dr. Henry Lee combined with poor storytelling and a story I didn't care about to begin with just ended it for me right there.

    Good info I enjoyed this book, Phelps is interesting. Several cases are reviewed, and I even decided to buy a couple of the books.
