New York Times bestselling investigative journalist and serial killer expert M. William Phelps is the author of thirty-one nonfiction books and has appeared on over 100 television shows. He created, produced and starred in the series Dark Minds and is one of the stars of Deadly Women and Oxygen's Snapped, Killer Couples and KillerPost. Radio America calls him "the nation's leading authority on the mind of the female murderer." Touched by tragedy himself through the unsolved murder of his sister-in-law, Phelps is able to enter the hearts and minds of his subjects like no one else. He lives in a Connecticut farming community and can be reached at his website, www.mwilliamphelps.com.
Dexter consultant and prolific true-crime writer Phelps (Love Her to Death) recounts the 2003 quadruple murder in Clear Lake, TX, that shocked the community. The victims were teenagers from good families, the murders were committed in a well-manicured neighborhood in a nice suburban town, the shooting was extremely violent, and three long years went by before an anonymous tip led the police to the perpetrators. Through Phelps's investigative journalism, the reader goes along on the emotionally turbulent ride of the victims' families, who suffered through anguish, heartbreak, and fear. Readers also observe the dedication of the detectives on the case and their efforts following scores of false leads without enough resources and support, and they hear of the killers' lives before and after the murders. VERDICT Phelps clearly shows how the ugliest crimes can take place in the quietest of suburbs. An unblinking account of how four American teenagers lost their lives in the most violent way, how their families have suffered, and how an unlikely individual was responsible for causing this terrible crime.-Krista Bush, Shelton Public Sch.
