Description

Welcome to the newest box set (three books rolled in to one set) of the New York Times bestselling series, Notorious USA. In Shadows of Death, acclaimed Wall Street Journal bestselling author Katherine Ramsland take crime readers on a tour of New Jersey, New York and Delaware. New Jersey Home of the Jersey Devil, New Jersey has its share of other devils, from predatory nurses to thrill killers and sadists. Here you’ll find a family that preyed on one of their own, a mass murderer with a List of Grudges, an adulterous minister killed with his mistress, and a wife who cut up her husband. This state is rich in crime, with a significant number of high profile cases, like the Lindbergh and Reso kidnappings, Unruh’s rampage, and the celebrated success of America’s Most Wanted in tracking down a man who’d slaughtered his entire family. ? New York The Empire State has witnessed many unique and perverse crimes. Quite a few triggered international headlines. This is where the phrase “serial killer” was born – for good reason! From genius killers to violent child molesters, New York has it all. We also find the demented assassinations of Stanford White and John Lennon, the strange case that inspired Edgar Allen Poe, murders that enthralled filmmakers, scandalous crimes that altered journalism, and even a murderous writer. Let’s not forget Amityville and the missing Judge Crater! But we must warn you: Don’t read this book at night! Delaware The first documented female serial killer in the U.S. came out of the tiny state of Delaware, as did a “signature killer” who attracted FBI profilers. Political intrigue winds though an unsolved mystery in Wilmington, while a high-powered attorney ruins his life to punish his mistress. We have poisoners and bludgeoners, and some privileged teenagers killing their baby. The corridor state between New Jersey and Maryland might be small, but it has harbored some very dark characters. ?show more
