Real Life Evil - A True Crime Quickie is a compelling collection of two true crime short stories.
"Hiding in Plain Sight" is the chilling account of serial killer Jack Unterweger, one of the most clever, manipulative predators of the twentieth century...and the most dangerous.
"A Message from the Grave" examines the events surrounding the unsolved Gilgo Beach murders, a case which would spawn the largest murder investigation in Long Island, New York's history as an elusive serial killer continues to elude authorities.

Newspaper articles have more detail than these quickie crime stories.
Again GOOD book. Slow to start.?
Well that was good. I have never read anything on Jack Unterweger, so that was interesting. Then again, I was only a senior in high school then, and news wasn't very important.... What a coward he really was.... The second one, I hope they find who did it someday so those poor families can have closure. Thanks Kim for a good read, can't wait for the next one!
Kim Cresswell has written two short true crime stories written in factual journalistic style. The first is the story of the Vienna Woods Killer and tells of a series of crimes committed over a period of time in both Europe and the United States. The second is an unsolved story of women killed, dismembered and dumped in Long Island. Both are interesting and stories I had never heard before. It made me wonder again how one person can so easily take the life of another and what makes such people exist.
