This is the disturbing account of 31-year-old Joanna Dennehy, mother of two, the man under her spell, Gary Stretch, 47, and the murder investigation that led them and others to the Old Bailey for trial. A true crime short, plus 17 additional true crime stories.

It was the day before Easter, 2013. A man out walking his dog on a rural road near Peterborough, United Kingdom found a dead body lying in a ditch. The grisly discovery preceded two other dead body discoveries under similar circumstances, thus launching police on a massive country-wide manhunt for a self-mutilating female psychopath with an affinity for knives and her 7-foot 3-inch tall companion and accomplice. Before their bloody rampage was brought to an end, they would attempt to kill two additional innocent people who likely never even saw them coming.

There are other fascinating stories in this volume as well: serial killer Andrew Urdiales, Jodi Arias and the Murder of Travis Alexander, the Random Serial Stabber case, a killer who wanted to be like “Dexter,” a “Blood Oath” murder case out of Washington State, and several others chosen especially for true crime readers. Eighteen stories in all. Photos
