Overview

A girl uses her wits to survive a maniacal killer who wipes out her family. A woman is condemned for the �final betrayal of motherhood� � killing her children. A grieving mother becomes convinced that the murderer of her beautiful teenage daughter is innocent.
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), delve into their Notorious USA crime files to take a new look at Idaho�s most notorious crimes.

Cases include: Shasta Groene � the brave little girl was the only survivor of a random murder and kidnapping in Coeur d�Alene.

Jeralee Underwood � an eleven-year-old who had the bad luck to meet a ruthless killer as she performed her favorite task of the day, delivering newspapers to her Pocatello neighborhood.

Robin Row � the only woman on Idaho�s Death Row liked to set fires that killed her children. She just happened to have purchased life insurance before the tragic incidents.

Angie Dodge � Carol Dodge grieved her daughter�s murder for years, until she became convinced the police had coerced a confession and convicted the wrong man. Now she�s working for Christopher Tapp�s release.

Lyda Trueblood � America�s first female serial killer liked to bake apple pies. She sprinkled in a secret ingredient � arsenic.

Sarah Johnson � The teenager with the blonde ponytail shot her parents with a rifle, then hid her blood-spattered pink bathrobe in the garbage.

With a bonus essay from Olsen, author of the 2005 Idaho Book of the Year, The Deep Dark � Disaster and Redemption in America�s Richest Silver Mine.

This book is only 124 pages. It appeared to be much longer.

This is the first True Crime book I've read. It was good reading but I guess I was looking for more of the "mystery" of it or maybe "the why the crimes were done" and it was just factual, which is okay, but not for me.
