5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing thrill ride of a read.,
A short story that gives you a lot for the price and size. Bad Billy is the product of inbreeding, and shoved into a basement. When he finally finds his way out into the world he has been shut off from years, his social skills are psychotic.
This book would make a amazing film I could picture Rob Zombie turning this into a cult classic. Mayhem, blood, gore, and many surprise twist makes this story a work of art of how to write a short story.
I will be waiting and instantly buying this authors new work as soon as it comes out.

This is a great introduction to this cop who takes things to an extreme just to get the job done, I can't wait to read more stories of Tom Wade
Any fan of The Shield or The Wire will really find themselves engrossed in this book and wishing to see it someday turned into a TV series
Major Crimes Unit detective Tom Wade secretly worked with the Feds to nail seven of his fellow cops for corruption…turning him into a pariah in the police department. So he’s exiled to patrol a beat in King City’s deadliest neighborhood… with no back-up, no resources, and no hope of survival.
Now Wade fights to tame the lawless, poverty-stricken wasteland…while investigating a string of brutal murders of young women. It’s a case that takes him from the squalor of the inner-city to the manicured enclaves of the privileged, revealing the sordid and deadly ways the two worlds are intertwined…making his enemies even more determined to crush him.
But for Tom Wade, backing down is never an option...even if it will cost him his life. It’s one reason why bestselling author Janet Evanovich calls Wade “an unforgettable and deeply compelling character in the most original crime novel to come along in years."

Capitalizing on the growing popularity of short eBooks like Kindle Singles and Nook SNAPS, Crimescape and its publisher RosettaBooks LLC, a leading independent digital publisher and eBook pioneer, have added three new short eBooks to its true crime collection, bringing the total to fifteen titles.
Crimescape is proud to offer Murder By Mistake by popular British novelist and nonfiction author M.J. Trow. The mysteries surrounding Britain’s 7th earl of Lucan have endured for almost four decades. In 1974, after his carefully crafted plan to murder his wife went awry, he killed his nanny by mistake, and then attacked his wife ─ all while his three children were in the house. If it happened today, everyone with access to the Internet and TV would be inundated for months with the contradictory details of this bizarre story and how the dashing aristocrat became the subject of a worldwide manhunt. Periodically, there are alleged sightings of the murderous earl on the lam in remote parts of Africa, Asia and South America.
M. J. Trow, author of the Lestrade, Peter “Mad Max” Maxwell, and the brand-new and very well-received Kit Marlowe detective series, as well as nonfiction books on important historical figures, presents the astonishing details of this case. Trow also analyzes what likely happened the night of the murder and the fate of the missing earl. Combining his talents as a storyteller and the objectivity of a historian, Trow leads us into the opulent sanctuaries of England’s aristocracy, suddenly violated by a despicable crime.
Bestselling eBook author Dr. Katherine Ramsland has authored the second of our new eBooks entitled The Ivy League Killer. Each serial killer is unique, but some have a truly unusual mystique that commands our attention. The media offers simplistic motives for serial lust murder, citing factors such as a head injury or sexual abuse. But what about a gifted young man from a middle-class family who attended an Ivy League university and who was not injured or abused? While at school, he was socially active and became involved with several beautiful young women. He became engaged to one. With this almost perfect life, what could have inspired him to become a predator?
Drawing on her extensive expertise in forensic psychology, Dr. Ramsland gives deep insight into a seemingly promising man who hunted down, raped and murdered eight young women. The same character disorder that supported his sense of entitlement prompted him to insist upon his execution, despite the state’s determined efforts to avoid using the death penalty.
Top selling Crimescape author of MOM: The Killer, former detective Mark Gado brings us another story so strange that it almost defies belief. Reminiscent of The Silence of the Lambs, Kiss the Girls Goodnightis the frightening story of a wealthy real-life collector of girls. Everyone who knew him understood he was strange, but even his wife and three sons thought he was just a harmless eccentric who collected empty bottles and junk. No one was especially surprised when he built a bomb shelter attached to his basement. How could anyone, even his faithful wife, dying a slow death from cancer in the house above — imagine that the shelter was really a bleak dungeon where he imprisoned and raped the girls that he kidnapped? Even more chilling was the skill with which he selected his victims, enticed them into his house, and methodically enslaved them so that they were too frightened to defy him or try to escape.
All fifteen Crimescape eBooks are available on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, and iBookstore. Each Crimescape true crime short is between 12,000 and 25,000 words and all have numerous photos.
Crimescape is a RosettaBooks collection of compelling short nonfiction crime books by the best true crime authors in the business, many of whom have seen their books made into major motion pictures. Taking readers into the dark heart of the criminal mind and the tense hunt to bring perpetrators to justice, Crimescape authors stand apart from other true crime writers because they are selected for their experience in crime investigation, whether as police detectives, investigative reporters, forensics professionals or criminal psychologists. Riveting storytellers, our Crimescape short nonfiction writers give readers all the information they need to understand relevant clues and the interwoven influences in each criminal case.
