This is the second volume of the bestselling annual, Serial Killers True Crime Anthology, a collection of some of the best true crime writing on serial killers over the year. Several of these authors who appeared in Volume 1 of the Anthology, return this year to Volume 2 with new stories. 2015 Serial Killers True Crime Anthology Volume 2: Peter Vronsky in the chilling story "Zebra! The Hunting Humans 'Ninja' Truck Driver Serial Killer" describes the carnage perpetrated in 2007 by Adam Leroy Lane, a long haul truck driving serial killer who after repeatedly watching in his truck cab a serial killer DVD movie he was obsessed with, forayed out in the night from Interstate highway truck-stops dressed in Ninja black to re-enact the movie scenes by killing and mutilating unsuspecting women in their homes until he was captured by a fifteen-year old girl and her parents when he attempted to kill her as she slept in her bedroom.RJ Parker in "Demons" introduces us to the little known story of Canada's serial killer Michael Wayne McGray who murdered men, women and children indiscriminately and whom even prison could not stop from continuing his killing. In the "Grim Sleeper" Parker describes the brutal crimes of Lonnie Franklin, Jr. who over a 23-year killing career, took a fourteen-year hiatus (thus his nickname) before resuming his murders of women in Los Angeles.Katherine Ramsland in "The Babysitter" brings us up to date on the still unsolved horrific1976 mutilation child murders in Detroit that inspired Bill Connington's one-man Broadway play and Joyce Carol Oates 1995 novella Zombie. In "Really! The Other Guy Did It." Ramsland explores the bizarre case of serial killer Douglas Perry who after killing several women underwent a transsexual change into a woman, Donna Perry, who when apprehended, claimed the murders were perpetrated by his former male self who no longer existed. Ramsland asks, "Is guilt in the body or the soul?" Michael Newton in "Bad Medicine" and "Angel of Death" describes two serial killers where we least expect them: health care workers. Physician Dr. Harold Shipman who murdered 250 victims in Britain and might be history's most prolific serial killer, and the smiling mild mannered Ohio medical orderly 'Angel of Death' Donald Harvey, who confessed to murdering 87 helpless patients, stating, "So I played God."Sylvia Perrini, Britain's true crime chronicler of female serial killers in "The House of Horrors" revisits the notorious case of Rosemary West who teamed up with her husband Fred in the rape, torture and murder of ten young women in their rooming house, including her own daughter. In "The Mum Who Killed for Kicks" Perrini looks at the recent case of Joanne Dennehy, a mother of a thirteen-year old who inexplicably went on a thrill kill serial killing spree in which she tortured and murdered three men with a knife and attempted to kill two others.Kelly Banaski, a newcomer to true crime writing, brings us "Stripped of his medals and female panties", the strange case of a Canadian air force base commander, a colonel who piloted senior government officials and even the Queen of England, who suddenly began to commit a series of panty fetish burglaries that eventually escalated to horrific rape-torture murders of women. Enjoy and be horrified!!

Der neue Roman "Wo drei Flüsse sich kreuzen" von Bestseller-Autorin Hannah Kent ist ein mitreißendes Drama um die Macht von Angst und Aberglaube - basierend auf einer wahren Geschichte. Irland 1825: Die 14-jährige Mary soll der verwitweten Bäuerin Nora mit deren schwer behindertem Enkel Michael zur Hand gehen. Der kleine Junge, so munkelt man im Dorf, sei ein Wechselbalg, ein Feenkind, und mache die Kühe krank. Mary gibt nichts auf das Gerede, doch als Nora davon hört, reift in der einsamen, verzweifelten Frau eine ungeheuerliche Idee: Wenn es ihr gelingt, den Wechselbalg zu vertreiben, würde sie den gesunden Michael wiederbekommen und endlich wieder eine echte Familie haben. Getrieben von Angst und Aberglaube und unterstützt durch die geheimnisvolle Kräuterfrau Nance ist sie bald bereit, alles zu versuchen – und Mary fällt es immer schwerer, sich gegen die beiden Frauen durchzusetzen. Hannah Kent gelingt es durch ihre kristallklare Sprache erneut, eine grausame und wahre Geschichte eindringlich zu erzählen; die rauhe Schönheit Irlands verschmilzt mit dem Seelenleben ihrer Figuren, die dem Leser, wie schon in ihrem Debüt-Roman "Das Seelenhaus", ganz nahe kommen.
