Summary

Three true-crime books in one volume, featuring cases ranging from Texas to Georgia to Alaska, from New York Times–bestselling and award-winning authors.   Included in this three-in-one volume are:  Bogeyman by New York Times–bestselling author Steve Jackson For years he stalked elementary schools and playgrounds looking for young girls from low-income neighborhoods to abduct, rape and murder. They were “throwaway kids” to him, hardly missed, soon forgotten, except by those who loved them. He was every parent’s worst nightmare—and it took a decades-long fight by Texas lawmen to bring him to justice.   “A fascinating, well-paced read about the lows and highs of cold case investigations.” —Katherine Ramsland, in Psychology Today  Murder In The Familyby Edgar Award–winning author Burl Barer A New York Times Bestseller: In 1987, Anchorage police arrived at a horrific scene of carnage. In a downtown apartment, they found Nancy Newman’s brutally beaten corpse and the bodies of her two young daughters. After an intense investigation, they identified the principal suspect: Kirby Anthoney—a troubled drifter who’d turned to his uncle, Nancy’s husband, for help and a place to stay. Little did he know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath . . .   “Barer writes true crime at its best.” —Jack Olsen  Targetedby New York Times–bestselling author M. William Phelps When her missing boyfriend is found dead, his body encased in cement inside a watering trough and dumped in a cattle field, a Georgia sheriff’s deputy is arrested and charged with his murder. But as an investigative journalist digs in, the truth leads to questions about her guilt . . .   “Phelps is one of America’s finest true-crime writers.” —Vincent Bugliosi

    Handpicked works from the greatest Argentinian writer of the twentieth century. “Without Borges the modern Latin American novel simply would not exist” (Carlos Fuentes, author and diplomat).   After almost a half a century of scrupulous devotion to his art, Jorge Luis Borges personally compiled this anthology of his work—short stories, essays, poems, and brief mordant “sketches,” which, in Borges’s hands, take on the dimensions of a genre unique in modern letters.   In this anthology, the author has put together those pieces on which he would like his reputation to rest; they are not arranged chronologically, but with an eye to their “sympathies and differences.” A Personal Anthology, therefore, is not merely a collection, but a new composition.   “An important work, by far the best yet available to the reader . . . who seeks a representative sampling of the great Argentine writer . . . the standard introduction to Borges in England and the United States.” —Saturday Review
