Summary

A grizzly arson case leads an Indianapolis prosecutor to an infant’s coldblooded killer in this chilling true crime by the author of Inconvenience Gone.   On the morning of March 6, 1993, an intense fire broke out in a tiny nursery. Sixteen minutes later, firefighters had extinguished the blaze. The room was burned so severely, that virtually nothing was recognizable . . . but they were told to look for a baby. What they discovered was almost too gruesome for words. Not only the baby’s charred remains, but an unsettling fact: the child’s parents were home at the time the fire broke out.   The arson squad declared the fire suspicious and investigators determined it was arson. But if it truly was arson, what was the motive? Along with the tenacious and determined Detective Leslie Van Buskirk, Marion County Prosecutor Diane Marger Moore persisted for more than two years to get justice for Baby Matthew Wise. In 16 Minutes, she recounts the incredible story—and the shocking revelations she made.</

    Murder begins with the click of a button in this true crime story of Facebook, catfishing and deadly jealousy—as seen on Investigation Discovery. Chris was a CIA agent worried for the safety of Jenelle Potter. Contacting her parents and boyfriend, Chris warned them that Billy Payne and Billie Jean Hayworth were bullying Jenelle online and posed an imminent, physical threat. Something needed to be done, Chris said. And he’d have their backs if they took action to protect Jenelle. And so they did. Jenelle’s father and boyfriend murdered Payne and Hayworth in their own home—mercifully leaving the couple’s infant unharmed. But when they told their story to the police, they discovered a devastating truth: there was no Chris. It had been Jenelle the entire time, catfishing them to exact revenge over a Facebook feud.  Using forensic linguistics and diving through the brambles that Jenelle laid to cover her tracks, police were able to put together a chilling portrait of a sociopath who set a double murder in motion from the shadows of the internet. Dennis Brooks, the lead prosecutor in this strange and tragic case, examines the crime and trial from all angles in Too Pretty to Live. What the police investigation turned up, though, made this crime all the more terrifying. Jenelle had been Chris the entire time, catfishing her family and her boyfriend to act in vengeance on her behalf. Using forensic linguistics and diving through the brambles that Jenelle laid to cover her tracks, police were able to put together a chilling portrait of a sociopath, made all the more ruthless by the anonymity of her online life. Bizarre and unforgettable, Dennis Brooks examines the crime and trial from all angles, bringing his expertise as the lead prosecutor in the strange and disturbing case.

    Twenty years before shocking the world in Los Angeles in 1947 as “The Black Dahlia Avenger”, did George Hodel terrorize California by committing some of its most infamous crimes and serial murders? 
    From the introduction: 
    In writing The Further Serial Crimes of George Hill Hodel, MD, The Early Years Part 1: 1920s, my original intent was to present all my father’s suspected crimes from the 1920s and 1930s in one edition. I have found this is simply not possible as it would require a book that would dwarf Dostoevsky’s nearly 700-page opus Crime and Punishment. Therefore, I will present “The Early Years” in two parts—two editions. This edition is part one and presents my investigations of his suspected crimes in the 1920s. Note that I said “suspected crimes”. I want to be crystal clear on this point. My two-part “Early Years” investigations are just that—a search for the truth. 
    In the presentation of these crimes from long ago (the first one goes back 100 years), I make no claim to a “solution”. I am not saying that my father, George Hill Hodel, committed any of these crimes beyond a “reasonable doubt”—which would be the legal requirement to find him guilty. 
    Several of these crimes—without the introduction of hard physical evidence or DNA—are not solvable. Others have been claimed “solved” by law enforcement and are considered “case closed”. To be clear: These crimes from the '20s and '30s did not present themselves to me post-Black Dahlia Avenger, published in 2003. I was aware of them and his possible involvement in them as early as the year 2000, a full three years before I presented my father to the world as the killer of Elizabeth “Black Dahlia” Short and the other LA Lone Woman Murders.

    To paraphrase the note from the translator, The Celebrated Crimes of Alexandre Dumas père was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language—has minced no words—to describe violent scenes of violent times.In this, the sixteenth of the series, Dumas, the novelist-historian, brings his story-telling skills to a subject no less than infamous at the time and which still holds a fascination for us: Marie-Madeleine-Marguerite d'Aubray, Marquise de Brinvilliers.The Marquise was tried, convicted, and executed for poisoning her father and two of her brothers. It appears that she learned the art of the poisoner from her lover, Godin de Sainte-Croix. She also targeted, but did not kill, her sister, a Carmelite nun. Her case launched what is known in French history as the Affair of the Poisons, a long-running judicial scandal which led to the execution or imprisonment of dozens of people, many of the highest rank in French society, including prominent members of the court of Louis XIV. Although Duma's book on Brinvilliers has been dismissed as mere historical fiction, in reality it is solidly based on the documents of the time and on prior historical treatments of the case. Shocking as it is to suppose, this beautiful and cultured Frenchwoman was indeed a formidable murderess.Of course, Dumas, the dramatist and novelist, cannot help embellishing the work of Dumas, the historian. It becomes clear that his true interest lies not in the events, but in the character of Brinvilliers herself, as she confronts the rapidly approaching fact of her own torture and execution. Approximately half the book is devoted to the conversations between the Marquise and Edmond Pirot, a theologian of the Sorbonne, who acted as her chaplain and confessor during the last days of her life. The give-and-take between them is an interesting dramatization of the workings of conscience and remorse.Dumas may have collaborated on this, as he frequently did in his works, with other writers. Nevertheless, it is clearly Dumas who has the final say on this work, as with all the other works in this series.Enjoy!
