New York Times bestselling authors Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris take a new look at some of the country's most notorious crimes. Overkill is a compilation of Notorious Colorado, Notorious Arizona and Notorious Utah.
Colorado's edition includes three of the country's most infamous crimes which all occurred in the same area of Colorado: the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, the Columbine school shooting, and the Aurora movie theater massacre. They also report on an Amish serial killer, a fatal attraction that led to a murder, and on a minister's wife whose illicit passion drove her to murder.
In Arizona's, they update several cases, including: a man suspected of marrying vulnerable women, then killing them; two infamous Arizona killers freed after decades in prison; television's "it girl" Jodi Arias; a woman who was her mother-in-law's worst nightmare; and a football mom who got a little too cozy with members of her son's high school team.
And in Utah's edition, they report on one of the most sensational and heartbreaking crimes they've come across-Megan Huntsman, the Utah mother who hid seven dead infants in a garage; a cold case that was finally solved by a child's Lego; the rogue Fundamentalist Mormon who thought it was his right to marry and rape young girls; the sad case of children dying in hot cars; the husband who ended years of lying with murder; and an update on the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell, the case Olsen and Morris write about in their book If I Can't Have You.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book thinking it would be a deeper look into well known crimes like the Columbine shooting and the Boulder movie theater massacre. I had read books by Ann Rule which delved deeply into the personality and character trsits of notorious killers like Ted Bundy. Unlike Rule's books this book only regurgitates what we already know from media accounts of these notorious crimes. There were no new insights presented in this book. The writing is sophomoric and bland. Save your money.
good mix of true true crime
Love true crime
