In this riveting collection of true crime stories from the files of award-winning journalist, 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 Street’s Big Bird comes home to find a dead woman on his estate. These join several other tales only a master storyteller like Phelps can bring to life for readers.

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 family’s 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 serial killer cold cases that still haunt Phelps today.

Finally, as an added bonus, Phelps, who author Vincent Bugliosi called ‘one of America’s best true crime journalists,’ heads out to meet renowned forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee in a narrative interview that reveals Lee’s 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.

Crime and murder expert, creator/producer/writer and former host of DARK MINDS, acclaimed, award-winning investigative journalist M.
