Blood Bath

Blood Bath by Susan D. Mustafa & Tony Clayton & Sue Israel
They Knew He Was Out There

He took his time. He watched his victims and chose carefully. Then he struck--each attack more brutal than the last. By the time detectives arrived, all they found were gruesome crime scenes of bloodied, brutalized bodies. . .

They Knew He Would Strike Again

For more than ten years in South Louisiana the killings went on. Task forces were formed. The killer even spent time in jail. But that wouldn't stop the bloodshed. One victim was stabbed with a screwdriver 83 times. . .

But They Couldn't Stop Him--Until Was Too Late

He was a father. A husband. A co-worker. And a killer....

Blood Betrayal

Blood Betrayal by Sheila JohnsonCrazy Kills

"The worst I've ever seen" - that's how Sheriff Cecil Reed described the July 7, 1995 slayings of Carolyn Headrick, 44, and her mother Dora Ann Dalton, 62. The two were found in their home in rural DeKalb County, Alabama, where they'd been shot, stabbed and then even speared by a Native American style lance. Randy Headrick, Carolyn's husband, was the beneficiary of $325,000 in insurance money. But he swore he'd been at work when the murders were committed--and the police couldn't break his alibi.

Bad News

Blood Justice

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 Relation by Eric Konigsberg

A New Yorker writer investigates the life and career of his hit-man great-uncle and the impact on his family.

When he was sent off to boarding school, he learned from an ex-cop security guard that there was: His great-uncle Harold, in prison in upstate New York, was a legendary Mafia enforcer, suspected by the FBI of upwards of twenty murders.

Konigsberg had uncovered a shameful, long-hidden family secret....

Blood Secrets: Chronicles of a Crime Scene Reconstructionist

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

Blood Secrets reveals how forensic experts read the story of a murder told in the traces of blood left behind, providing crucial evidence that has helped convict criminals who might have otherwise walked free.

When Rod Englert began his career in law enforcement, virtually no police force in the world knew how to correctly examine blood spatter. He spent years studying and testing how blood behaves, pioneering a vital new tool that is now a part of any criminal investigation. In Blood Secrets he demonstrates how detectives and forensic experts use blood-spatter analysis to solve real cases.
