Below is a list of some of my true crime books which I intend reviewing and I am giving everyone a choice as to which true crime book I should review next.You can either leave a comment below or send me a private e mail to:


Here are some of them:

If Loving You Is Wrong by Gregg Olsen

Just years ago, the pretty, personable Seattle schoolteacher was living a life many would envy.She had a handsome husband, four beautiful children, and a beloved following of students.

Sleep,My Child,Forever by John Coston
This gripping account of Ellen Boehm's cold-blooded murder of her two sons and her attempt on her daughter's life.

Invisible Darkness by Stephen Williams

Deadly Seduction by Wensley Clarkson
Prominent Indiana attorney Jimmy Grund thought he'd found the woman of his dreams when he wed his second wife Susan. But beneath the silky blond society lady lurked a calculating evil-tempered seductress whose murderous future was about to rival her sordid past. When she hid her previous marriages and an appalling crime from Jimmy, she was soon plotting to get her hands on his fortune. When Jimmy Grund finally found out the truth about his wife, he told her he was divorcing her. But no one left Susan Grund. All of Peru, Indiana was stunned when it was revealed the fatal bullet came from a gun stolen from young David Grund,the son of Jimmy Grund. Yet even that paled next to Susan's incredible testimony that she had carried on a two-year affair with the innocent teenager, who denied the affair and was not implicated in the crime.

Baby Be Mine by Diane Fanning
This is the Missouri case in which Lisa Montgomery allegedly murdered eight-months-pregnant Bobbie Joe Stinnett just days before Christmas 2004, stole the foetus from Bobbie Joe Stinnett's body, and attempted to pass the baby off as her own.

A Fatal Lie by Sally Chew
A lesbian love triangle explodes into bloody murder.Richmond, Virginia, July 1997. A brick row-house in the city's gay Carytown district, home of 18-year-old Kelley Turtle Tibbs, legendary ringleader of the teenage lesbian scene. Walk inside and you'd be likely to find Melissa Etheridge blasting on the stereo, lots of beer, a clutch of shaven-headed young women,and Turtle's tall possessive girlfriend, Tracy Bitner. Enter 18-year-old Stacey Hanna, a new roommate who moved east from Lynchburg and, from the beginning, openly carried a torch for Turtle. Stacey's attempts to drive a wedge between Turtle and Tracy backfired badly. And one night, Turtle, Tracy and two friends literally dragged Stacey to a wooded area and kicked, slashed, and stabbed her to death in a scene straight out of a horror movie. Was this a crime of passion-- a frenzy of the heart? Was it calculated retribution for disrupting a bond between two lovers? Or was it, as one of the girls told a detective, just one of those times...when somebody had to die? Learn the fascinating truth in a riveting story of obsession, betrayal, and murder...

Who Killed My Daughter by Lois Duncan

But in the summer of 2000, Michael found himself standing trial for the murder of his pregnant wife, Leann. The verdict,guilty of second-degree murder,would leave friends, family, and the public at large scrambling to make sense of a twisted and frightening series of events that ended in the brutal killing of Leann Fletcher. What could possibly have led Michael Fletcher to commit such a gruesome act?

I will do the reviews as per the first e mail request I get until all of these true crime book reviews are done above and then post a new list of my true crime books.I have to do it this way otherwise I am never going to get it done.At least this way I know someone is waiting for my review which then puts more pressure on me to actually get it done.
