Blood In, Blood Out: The Violent Empire of the Aryan Brotherhood

John Lee Brook

Blood Justice

Tom Henderson

Blood Justice by Tom Henderson

In 1991, flight attendant Nancy Ludwig checked in to an airport hotel near Detroit. The next morning she was found gagged, raped, and tortured-her throat slit with such rage that she was nearly decapitated. Her husband Arthur never gave up hope that the future would bring enough evidence to close the case. But it was the past that held the clue.

In 1985, fifty-five-year old Margarette Eby, a music professor, met the same grisly death at her cottage in Flint, Michigan. The case went cold-until six years later when the victim's son Mark came upon the story of Nancy Ludwig's slaying. With nothing...

Blood Secrets: Chronicles of a Crime Scene Reconstructionist by Rod Englert & Kathy Passero
