Enjoy a collection of non-fiction accounts by international writers and experts on crooks, rogues, criminals, and serial killers who disguise themselves among society by being what you least expect-your friendly next-door neighbor.
From mild mannered coworkers to doting parents. Some might be your jack-of-all-trades friend, or others might be your family member with an altruistic persona. The Best New True Crime Stories: Well-Mannered Crooks, Rogues & Criminals takes you deeper into the unconventional criminal's psyche.

You’ll find yourself realizing that being nice and friendly is a killer combination.
