Editorial Reviews


"Masters of True Crime is a riveting collection of short stories told by veteran crime writers. Once you begin to read this book, you will have trouble putting down. A disturbing, albeit fascinating, read."--Kathleen M. Heide, Ph.D., Professor of Criminology, University of South Florida, author of Why Kids Kill Parents and Young Killers

"R. Barri Flowers has assembled a chilling selection of recent writing by both new and old masters of true crime literature in a dazzling array of the sinister, absurd, and just purely evil." --Peter Vronsky, author of Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters

"Striking, well-written tales sparkle in this ocean of murder. Crimes spanning a century and stretching across an ocean are a diverse collection of the macabre." --Diane Fanning, author of Mommy's Little Girl

"Written by a talented and gifted group of writers. In my opinion, this book should be a mandatory purchase and read for any true crime buff. It is, indeed, an exceptional collection of true crime stories." --Steven A. Egger, PhD, associate professor and chair of the Criminology Program at the University of Houston, Clear Lake

"A fascinating, must-read compendium of true crime by some of the genre's leading authors." --Gary C. King, bestselling author of Blood Lust: Portrait of a Serial Sex Killer

From the Author

As editor of this superb collection of seventeen gripping true crime tales, it was great to work with so many bestselling and award winning true crime all stars. These include Harold Schechter, Katherine Ramsland, Burl Barer, Carol Ann Davis, Cathy Scott, Robert Scott, Patricia Spinger, Linda Rosencrance, Robert J. Watkins, Amanda Lamb, Michele McPhee,  Camille Kimball, Lee Lofland., Phyllis Gobbell, Doug Jones, and Laura James. 

For true crime fans, this anthology is bound to become a classic that you will likely want to read more than once to fully grasp the range of crimes, criminals, victims, settings, and outcome.


R. Barri Flowers

Author of
The Sex Slave Murders, Serial Killer Couples,Mass Murder in the Sky, and Dark Streets of Whitechapel.
