A terrified voice cried out in the night. "Who are you? What do you want?" The sound of snapping twigs closed in on the five teenagers enjoying an evening around a glowing campfire at Gitchie Manitou State Park. The night of music and laughter had taken a dark turn. Evil loomed just beyond the tree line, and before the night was over, one of the Midwest's most horrific mass murders had left its bloodstains spewed across the campsite. One managed to survive and would come to be known as the "Gitchie Girl." Harrowing memories of the terrifying crime sent her spiraling out of control, and she grasped at every avenue to rebuild her life. Can one man, a rescue dog, and a glimmer of faith salvage a broken soul? This true story will touch your heart and leave you cheering that good can prevail over the depravity of mankind. Through extensive research, interviews, and personal insight, the authors bring a riveting look at the heinous crime that shook the Midwest in the early 1970s. Written from rare, inside interviews with the lone survivor, who broke nearly four decades of silence, this shocking yet moving story will not soon be forgotten.

SHE WAS AN ASPEN SOCIALITE, FULL OF LIFE. . .UNTIL SHE WAS FOUND BEATEN TO DEATH IN HER OWN HOME. Heir to Buttermilk Mountain, the world-renowned site of the Winter X Games, Nancy Pfister was Aspen royalty, its ambassador to the world. She lived among the rich and famous—partying with Hunter S. Thompson, dating Jack Nicholson, even having a joint baby shower with Goldie Hawn. Nancy was also a philanthropist, admired for her generosity. But those closest to her, such as her assistant Kathy Carpenter and friends Dr. and Mrs. Styler, allege that Nancy was manipulative, cruel, and petty. Did they make her pay a price? WHAT HAPPENED TO NANCY PFISTER—AND WHO IS THE GUILTY PARTY IN THIS REAL-LIFE MURDER MYSTERY? Dr. William Styler and his wife came to Aspen in 2013 to reinvent themselves after a misguided lawsuit left them near poverty. Meeting Nancy Pfister was their answered prayer: She took the Stylers in and allowed them to launch their new spa business. Everything seemed perfect until Pfister made increasingly irrational demands on the Stylers, and threatened to throw them out on the street. When Nancy was found dead, the couple, along with Kathy Carpenter, all became prime suspects. But in this close-knit, wealthy town set on keeping its secrets safe from the public eye, the police struggled to solve the shocking murder on Buttermilk Mountain. . .

The falls of the Big Sioux River were formed 14,000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age, as melting ice eroded a channel down to the bedrock, revealing an abundance of Sioux quartzite. The power and beauty of the falls have attracted people to the area ever since, while Sioux quartzite has been used to construct many of the area's buildings. Incorporated as a city in 1856, Sioux Falls has steadily grown from a population of 17 at the time of establishment to 153,888 as of the 2010 census. As a natural part of that growth, change dictates that the old and worn out should make way for the new and shiny. Lest these things be forever forgotten, this book strives to point out what has been lost, what has been saved, and what can be found if one knows where to look.

To his neighbors on Imperial Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio, Anthony Sowell was a quiet and helpful former Marine who played chess and hosted summer barbeques in his front yard. But there was a dark side to Sowell-and a horrific secret inside his house. In mid-2007, Crystal Dozier, 38, made plans to visit Sowell. She was never seen again. Over the next two years, ten more Cleveland women disappeared. Their families filed missing persons reports. Police say their search efforts were hampered by the women's transient lifestyles. But the families say police considered their loved ones "disposable" and didn't take their disappearances seriously. On October 29, 2009, a SWAT team entered Sowell's house to arrest him on a sex charge. Nearly overcome by the stench of decaying flesh, police encountered a nightmarish scene: a skull was found in the basement and the remains of eleven women were scattered throughout the house and buried in the backyard. Sowell, a sexual sadist, had lured his victims to his personal House of Horrors with promises of drugs and alcohol. He then raped, tortured, and strangled them...and lived among their rotting corpses. Five other women were attacked by Sowell but lived to tell their stories. Book jacket.

Even after a childhood of abuse and fear, Stacey M. Kananen was shocked when her brother, Rickie, admitted his guilt in the cold-blooded murder of their terrifying father, and years later, their helpless mother. But the greatest shock was to come—when he claimed that Stacey had helped him. In 1988, when Rickie and Stacey’s father, Richard Kananen Sr., apparently left their home in Orlando, Florida, the family was so relieved that they never reported him missing. Fifteen years later to the day, their mother disappeared. When police became suspicious, Rickie admitted to Stacey that their father’s body was under the cement floor of their mother’s garage, and their mother was buried in Stacey’s own backyard. Overwhelmed by grief and horror, Stacey’s brother convinced her that they should commit suicide. After a failed attempt, she woke to discover her brother arrested—along with the realization that he had probably never intended to kill himself at all. But his betrayals were not yet over: On the eve of his trial in 2007, he suddenly claimed Stacey had been in on it, and she found herself charged with murder with a gung ho rookie detective out to put her away no matter what. This is the tragic and triumphant account of one woman’s struggle to overcome her past, clear her name in what would become a dramatic public spectacle of a trial, and finally escape the nightmares that had haunted her entire life.
