New York Times bestselling crime authors Caitlin Rother and Gregg Olsen have joined up to release this compilation of incredible murder cases from Florida, South Carolina and Georgia.
In Florida a former flight attendant murders her multimillionaire boyfriend of eighteen years, using a gun, a knife, a hammer (and possibly poisoned gin), claiming he was abusive for years and put a loaded gun to her head. A woman with a history of violent, drug-addicted boyfriends kills her latest lover after only a few weeks together, alleging that he forced a gun into her mouth in a drug-induced rage. A 15-year-old girl falls in love and wants to have a baby with a boyfriend who is four years older. Her mother, who wants to end the relationship, ends up dead after being stabbed, choked, and injected with a syringe loaded with bleach. A 16-year-old girl and her 20-year-old boyfriend conspire to fatally bludgeon her disapproving father with a baseball bat.
In Georgia a socialite wife of a multimillionaire is fatally shot by a flower delivery man on the day of a key divorce hearing. A crooked businessman trying to go straight is shot in his driveway by a hit man wearing a ski mask and camouflage gear—a contract-for-hire murder, advertised in Soldier of Fortune magazine. A Gulf War veteran and father of three is kidnapped, beaten and stabbed by the lover of his on-and-off-again wife, who wants to collect life insurance benefits and pay off her house.
In South Carolina a woman goes to the electric chair after a vengeful feud over a dead calf turns fatal; the state's most prolific serial killer manages to kill a fellow prisoner while on death row; and a young white man tries to incite a race war by fatally shooting nine African-Americans during Bible study in a historic church.
