Overview

A seven-year-old goes missing and his step-mother is the chief suspect. Two women, fifty years apart, make history for committing the most shocking of crimes. A father kills his three young children and his wife and impersonates a disgraced journalist. Oregon’s most famous murderer explains how her jail breaks show she’s ready for parole.

New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen (If Loving You Is Wrong, Starvation Heights) and veteran journalist Rebecca Morris (Ted and Ann – The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy), take a new look at Oregon’s most notorious crimes.
Cases include:

Angela McAnulty – The mother tortured her teenage daughter until it was too late to save her.
Kyron Horman – The boy with the tooth grin disappeared June 4, 2010. Why hasn’t his step-mother been charged?

Jeannace Freeman and Gertrude Jackson – Central Oregon was as shocked by their lesbian affair as it was by the murder of Jackson’s two children.

Christian Longo – He failed in his own life, so he killed his family and assumed someone else’s.

With two bonus essays, one about coming of age in Oregon as serial killers trolled I-5, and one about Gregg Olsen’s “date” with Oregon’s most notorious murderer, Diane Downs.
