The Crime of the Century- May 1, 2014 Reviewer Brittany Hale from BTS Magazine
REVIEW: 4.5 Stars
Written in third-person omniscient the narrator tells the story of two missing teens, their murder and the effect it has on their small town. With believable antics, ranging from police corruption, unconventional parenting, unreliable witnesses, satanic rituals, love triangles, hypnosis, forensic profiling, this novel doesn’t lack in believability. The crime occurs in the 1980’s without the popular DNA evidence, police have to rely on circumstancial ecidence to solve this horrific crime and bring those responsible to justice. The possible errors in previous methods of crime solving are brought to the attention of the reader, as a town is ripped apart by the disappearance of the teens. Although, I would have liked the novel to switch from a detected narration of the facts to a story where I could connect with the characterfs, it was consistent throughout the whole book. Well written and researched, The Crime of the Century, is an engrossing fictional true crime novel.

Murder Most Foul introduces us to Walker Harmon, an FBI Agent that’s sent out to solve gruesome crimes. In his line of work, blood and gore are the norm, and encountering dangerous individuals and gangs isnt unheard of. But what makes this book so uniquely brilliant is that all the crimes he’s set out to solve are based on true crimes in the state of Ohio. The author recreates the scenes with dramatic fashion, adding characters that are so realistic; it feels like you’re living the moment right along with them. She is a wonderful storyteller, paying attention to every intricate detail and leaving you hanging onto every word. If you’re a fan of crime thrillers, this book will definately not disappoint!
