The Best New True Crime Stories

They can be your neighbor. They can be your friend. They can even be your spouse.

Serial killers. Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer are often the first names that spring to mind. Many people assume serial killers are primarily an American phenomenon that came about in the latter part of the twentieth century. But such assumptions are far from the truth. Serial killers have been around for a very long time and can be found in every corner of the globe—and they’re not just limited to the male gender either. Some of them have been caught and brought to justice whereas others have never been found, let alone identified. These individuals can be anywhere. And scarier still, they can be anyone.

Edited by acclaimed author and anthologist Mitzi Szereto, The Best New True Crime Stories: Serial Killers features the very best all-new accounts of serial killers from the contemporary to the historic. The international list of contributors includes award-winning crime writers, true-crime podcasters, journalists, and experts in the field such as Martin Edwards, Lee Mellor, Danuta Kot, Craig Pittman , Richard O. Jones, Rachel Franks, Mike Browne and Vicki Hendricks.

The Best New True Crime Stories: Serial Killers will leave you wondering if it’s ever really possible to know who’s behind the mask you’re allowed to see.

God and Love on Route 80

By

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.

Women of Means

By

Heiresses have always been viewed with eyes of envy: they were the ones for whom the cornucopia had been upended, showering them with unimaginable wealth and opportunity. However, oftentimes the weaving sisters saved their most heart-wrenching tapestries for their destinies. The public has always been riveted by these larger than life ladies: as eye witnesses to live theater, for schadenfreude, for foray into irony. Criteria for inclusion entails birth or nuptials as the recipient of ‘the lucky sperm club’ the recipients of a many-splendored bank account. Christina Onassis: The oxymoron ‘poor little rich girl’ existed prior to heiress Christina Onassis, but she was its ill-starred embodiment. Her life was woven with the thread of Greek tragedy: she lost her entire family in the span of two years and her four husbands brought only heartache. She passed away at age thirty-seven in Argentina: her heart which had been abused and broken, finally gave out. She was interred in the family’s private island of Skorpios, beside her brother and father, whose term of affection for his daughter was “chryso mou” “my gold.”

Rediscover Love and Desire after Sexual Assault

Readers of The Body Keeps the ScoreThe Deepest Well and Trauma Stewardship will want to pick up Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault.

Have the courage to heal: We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too.

Move past the fog of trauma: In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection, so she had to make it up on her own. In Want, a genuine, vulnerable, and accessible account, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally totally delightful steps.

Experience hope, healing and recovery: We have plenty of stories about the helplessness, frustration, and vengeful feelings that can come up after trauma. Culturally, we have started a conversation about these experiences, and we’re all confused about what this all means for our relationships with each other. We badly need stories of hope, healing, and recovery. Survivors of assault, if you've been thinking to yourself, "I thought it was just me," Julie is here to show you that you are not alone. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you've experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma.

Want: Recovering Desire after Sexual Assault is Julie's story of getting through the devastation of sexual assault to living a full life. In this book, you will learn how to implement the eight steps Julie took to recovery:

  1. Survive
  2. Feel
  3. Rage
  4. Forgive
  5. Pleasure
  6. Eat
  7. Sex
  8. Love

Own It All

By

Own It All is intended for… - A woman who currently feels stressed out, depleted, overwhelmed, and unsatisfied—like she’s the underpaid intern of her life rather than the CEO. - A woman who wants to change one—or several—areas of her life, and who wants powerful stories, motivation, and guidance from someone who’s been there and done it. - A woman who wants to build a world with equal pay, equal opportunities, equal rights, and more women in positions of leadership. She’s definitely a feminist, even if she doesn’t necessarily use that word to describe herself. - A woman who’s interested in yoga, barre, pilates, and other types of fitness—although she probably doesn’t make it to class as often as she’d like. - A woman who’s inspired by powerful women like Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Misty Copeland, and Beyoncé. She loves their confidence and the purposeful way they lead their lives. She doesn’t necessarily want to be a “politician” or a “famous artist,” but she wants to build her own kind of legacy. - Her desk is stacked with copies of O: The Oprah Magazine and books like You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero, #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, and The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. She loves reading true stories about overcoming adversity. - She’s busy with work, kids, and many other responsibilities, and doesn’t have time for long-winded stories and airy-fairy guidance. She gravitates towards blunt, honest, straightforward writers who get right to the point. - She’s tired of postponing goals, dreams, and changes until “someday later,” and she’s tired of feeling pulled in too many directions. She wants to get clear on her goals, prioritize like a mofo, and make things happen.

Living FULL

Winning My Battle With Eating Disorders

Finding My FULL: This is my journey from starving to letting myself be FULL–physically & emotionally. What is living a FULL life? Having anorexia, bulimia, or vacillating between the two, you are trying to achieve an empty feeling through starvation or purging. Living a FULL life is a life where you aren’t starving anymore―starving for acceptance and love from others and yourself. It’s a life where you are feeding your mind and soul with good thoughts and foods. A life without your eating disorder.

Victim of the eating disorder monster: Imagine waking in a hospital bed to find your frail, pale arm punctured by an IV transferring fluids and nutrients into your weak, stiff body. What happened? You’re an adult, age twenty-six, and you just had a seizure precipitated by your chronic, secretive, decades-long struggle with unacknowledged eating disorders. You have no friends and no normal young-adult experiences. Living FULL is written by Danielle Sherman-Lazar, a woman who passed through the eating disorder crucible to recovery, sharing the most intimate and shameful details of her mental illness. Living FULL is Danielle's story.

Hidden out of shame: Eating disorders in young adults are hardly talked about, but are pervasive. Eating disorders are kept hidden out of shame. A groundbreaking 2012 study published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders found that about 13 percent of women over age 50 exhibit eating disorder symptoms.

Journey to recovery: Living FULL chronicles the author's step-by-step descent into the full-blown eating disorder nightmare and her path to recovery. Recovery comes from the Maudsley Approach, a regimen of supervised controlled eating or refeeding by out-patient helpers that eventually can result in recovery.

Benefits of reading Living FULL:

  • See how to confront your eating disorder demon
  • Learn from someone who won her eating disorder battle
  • Discover a new and beautiful life

Risking the Rapids

By

#1 Amazon New Release! ─ A Memoir and portrait of a family at its worst and its best

Some memoirs shock. Some entertain. Some take us places we’re afraid to go. A rare few move us. Once in a blue moon, a book does it all. This is Risking the Rapids.

Dysfunctional family: Risking the Rapids opens with the shocking death of O’Garden’s older brother, which prompts her and other relatives to seek closure on a journey through the remotest spot in Montana. Described genially as a river “float”, a harrowing journey unfolds. This wilderness trip is contrasted with O’Garden’s account of growing up with her six siblings in a clashing Catholic family.

Alcoholic father, mean mother, Catholic guilt: WCCO-TV personality Don O’Brien was well-known in the Twin Cities and throughout much of Minnesota. Whether forecasting weather and trading wisecracks with the anchor on the nightly news, pitching for sponsors Montgomery Ward and King Koil Mattresses, or hosting a Saturday night movie, he was a man people trusted. (For one thing, he’d warn them if the movie they were about to watch was a dud. “Go to bed,” he’d say.) In private, Don O’Brien’s family life was a far cry from what his fans saw on TV. Little by little we see the corrosion: nightly martinis shared with his wife Betty, an undemonstrative and icy-hearted mother. The neglect. The poisoning of self-esteem. The rigidity demanded by the Catholic church. Competition. Cruelty. All packed into ordinary days and nights as a sensitive girl comes of age.

Anxiety and danger: The children vary in their response to the profound anxiety sown in the offspring of alcoholics. One brother bites his fingers to gangrene. One relentlessly bullies the author, who begins overeating compulsively. One severs all ties with the family. Danger mounts as well on the Montana raft trip, when unusual river conditions swell and speed the waters.

Escalating intensity to excruciating climaxes: As O’Garden’s father becomes more popular, her mother sinks deeper into narcissism and meanness. The author becomes her principal target. The family itself becomes a microcosm of the cultural transformations from the 50s to the 60’s, when authoritarian structures were challenged and discarded by young protestors. Don becomes more reactionary, and his authoritarian fathering begins backfiring. While one son enlists and is sent to Vietnam, another becomes a conscientious objector, bringing emotional firestorms to the family table. The mother is emotionally unreachable. In a parallel time, the wilderness trip grows life-threatening when unpredictable weather strikes. Lives are at risk. Both stories build with escalating intensity to excruciating climaxes, which leave the reader moved and illuminated.

It’s also an inspirational story to which all women can relate, especially when moving forward through any type of adversity. Here’s what happened… One minute Crystal was sitting at a candlelight dinner in Paris with her husband. The next she was back home in Houston, sitting in her Ob-Gyn’s office concerned that she was having a second miscarriage. That wasn’t the news he delivered. Instead, she found out she was pregnant with twins! Since Crystal and her husband Ed already had a two-year-old daughter, Abigail, she couldn’t imagine why mothering twins would be all that different. But, after a family vacation at the beach, she finds out that her twins have a life threatening condition called Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome. That means that Baby B is transfusing blood (disproportionately) to Baby A. Houston, we have a problem! Her OB says that Crystal is too high risk to let out of his sight, so he sends her to the 5th floor of the Houston Medical Center for the duration of her pregnancy. Sitting alone in her hospital bed, Crystal wonders how she is going to pass the next few weeks, away from her husband and precious daughter. She soon finds out as she embarks on an emotional rollercoaster—from late night emergency ultrasounds to hospital baby blessings, sprinkled with comic relief from nurses and hospital staff. Twin-to-Twin is a raw and inspirational story filled with tenderness, vulnerability and humor. It chronicles the wildest, most terrifying and challenging year of Crystal’s life, which is also the most beautiful and eye opening. Her hope is that it will bring strength to other women dealing with their own personal trials and tragedies, so they can also triumph.

#1 Amazon New Release! – Stories to Help You Persevere

Live Through the Hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network – and then fires you for being “all icing and no cake.”  Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should’ve used your time on the show do more for Christ.  Then, because there’s always another “then,” you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your tenth-floor bathroom window…literally.  Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back and share his struggles because, well…not today Satan!  He knows what it’s like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help book Flipping the Script, he doesn’t sugar coat the truth.  After all, this isn’t Hollywood, errr…anymore.

Turn Bad Situations Around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail.  Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head.  He also knows that we all have problems and he’s here to help.  The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness and inspire you to turn your own rock bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!
