From the New York Times bestselling author of BREAKING POINT Multimillionaire Steven Beard, Jr. fell hard for Celeste Martinez, a shapely, blonde waitress who served him his nightly cocktail at the local country club...as well as sexual favors. In 1995, the 70-year-old widow Beard married the 32-year-old mother of twin teenagers and gave her homes, cars, and more jewelry and designer clothes than she could ever wear. But it wasn’t enough for Celeste. Claiming she was depressed, she checked into a psychiatric facility, where she met fellow patient Tracey Tarlton, a prominent bookstore manager. Celeste seduced Tracey, convincing her that the only way they could be together would be to kill Steve. In the wee hours of an October morning, Steve awoke to a shotgun blast to his gut. Tracey was arrested but refused to implicate Celeste...until she learned the truth about her lover. In a sordid trial sensationalized even more by the antics of famed Texas defense attorney Dick DeGeurin, the depths of Celeste’s lies were revealed in a tale of lust, betrayal, and regret. “The Fortune Hunter is New York Times bestselling author Suzy Spencer at her best...masterfully written...” —Cathy Scott, award-winning journalist and Los Angeles Times bestselling author “...a brilliantly crafted and endlessly compelling true crime thriller, Spencer is among the best of the best.”—Burl Barer, Edgar Award-winning author “...a suspenseful, page-turning tale of bloody, Texas-style greed with a gripping narrative and colorful cast of characters...”—Caitlin Rother, New York Times bestselling author of THEN NO ONE CAN HAVE HER “...riveting...” —GLOBE MAGAZINE This new edition of THE FORTUNE HUNTER has been updated throughout.

Ann Rule says, "Kathryn Casey is one of the best true crime writers today"—high praise indeed from the author of a host of nonfiction New York Times bestsellers including Green River and The Stranger Beside Me, the story of serial killer Ted Bundy. With Deadly Little Secrets, Casey once again explores the dark side of the Lone Star State, offering a riveting true story of a murderous Texas preacher responsible for the cold-blooded slaying of the mother of his children. Meticulously researched and spellbindingly told, Deadly Little Secrets pulls back the curtain on the horrific crimes of a supposed man of God who was more devoted to the Devil, and it demonstrates why such true crime luminaries as Edgar® Award winner Carleton Stowers and Gregg Olsen are confirmed Kathryn Casey fans. And don't miss Kathryn Casey's latest book, Deliver Us, a riveting account of the brutal murders of young women in the I-45/Texas Killing Fields.

But it wasn't long before the dream exploded. James became abusive and violent, prone to sudden bursts of anger, long silences, and unexplained disappearances. But Linda vowed to hold on, despite the pain and fear . . . and her disturbing suspicions about her husband's secret life. Then, not long after their move to Houston, Texas, she made a terrifying discovery: James's hidden cache containing duct tape, a ski mask, and handcuffs. No longer could Linda Bergstrom deny the hideous truth. The man she lived with, the man she married for love, was a dangerous psychopath. And there was no escape and nowhere to run. Because no one—not her friends, the Navy, or the police—would believe her.

Carlton Stowers, the two-time Edgar Award winner and New York Times bestselling master of true crime, is back. Scream at the Sky is his masterful chronicle of one man's murderous career, and another man's sworn promise to deliver justice and closure to the people of Texas. Wichita Falls, Texas, was home to a hundred thousand people in the last months of 1984. That winter was harsh, as the normally arid Texas plains gave way to ominous dark clouds that delivered freezing sleet and rain. But a much darker force was looming, and soon the quiet town was besieged by a faceless evil--and its young women were dying because of it. In the next seventeen months five women were found brutally beaten and murdered, their young lives cut short and their bodies left haphazardly where they fell. In the years that followed, grieving families fruitlessly sought answers. A haunted district attorney chased every lead only to meet one dead end after another. And the killer's identity remained unknown to the ravaged townspeople. Then, fourteen years after the killing started, an investigator who had been assigned the cold case brought to it a renewed dedication, and came upon a chance discovery. Searching through the yellowed case files, he caught a minor detail that suggested one more suspect. Faryion Wardrip was an unhappily married family man who drowned his anger in substance abuse and violent fantasies. But for five unfortunate families, the drugs sometimes took over and the fantasies became realities. Investigator John Little followed his instincts and tirelessly ruled out every possibility until he was left with but one conclusion: Faryion Wardrip was the serial killer who had eluded his office for so long. How he tracked down Wardrip and used the legal system to beat the killer at his own game of deception is a remarkable story of justice served.

Millionaire executive Steven Beard woke up screaming. Experiencing excruciating pain, he reached down and clutched his stomach. He felt the blood on his hands and panicked. His internal organs were oozing outside his belly. Beard reached over and called for an ambulance. The paramedics worked in vain to stem his bleeding. The seventy-four-year-old writhed in pain but out of the corner of his eye, he saw his wife Celeste enter the room. "Oh my God," Celeste said. "Steve! What happened?" The medics pushed the woman back, not wanting her to interfere in his care. Chaos ensued as his thirty-seven-year-old wife and her two twin daughters entered the room. Police searched around the premise and found a shell on the ground. Steven Beard had been shot in his stomach. But by whom? Was it the wife who strangely was not sleeping in the same bed. The daughters? Or would it be Tracey Tarlton, a lesbian lover of Celeste? "They knew Tracey had pulled the trigger," crime writer Diane Fanning said. "But they suspected someone else was involved. But Tracey just wouldn't talk." Tarlton harbored a secret from the police. She had fallen in love with Beard's wife, Celeste. But as Tracey would later find out, there was a lot about Celeste that she didn't know about...

Bright, attractive, and both from good families, University of Texas college student Colton Pitonyak and vibrant redhead Jennifer Cave had the world at their beckoning. Cave, an ex-cheerleader, had just landed an exciting new job, while a big-money scholarship to UT's prestigious business school lured Pitonyak to Austin. Yet the former altar boy had a dark, unpredictable streak, one that ensnared him in the perilous underworld of drugs and guns. When Jennifer failed to show up for work on August 18, 2005, her mother became frightened. Sharon Cave's search led to Colton's West Campus apartment, where Jennifer's family discovered a scene worthy of the grisliest horror movie. Meanwhile, Colton Pitonyak was nowhere to be found. A Descent Into Hell is the gripping true story of one of the most brutal slayings in UT history—and the wild "Bonnie and Clyde-like" flight from justice of a cold-blooded young killer and his would-be girlfriend, who claimed that her unquestioning allegiance to Pitonyak was "just the way I roll."

Thomas and Jackie Hawks had big plans. The couple wanted to sell their retirement home--a hard earned 55-foot yacht named Well Deserved --and move onto land to spend more time with family. So when a baby-faced buyer, Skylar Deleon, wanted to test drive the yacht, the Hawks were overjoyed. However, Skylar-- with his troubled past as a flamed-out childhood actor, a dishonorably discharged Marine and a suspect in the mysterious death of his former friend, Jon Jarvi --had an even more troubling future planned. But as the Hawks set sail with Skylar and two of his friends, not everyone will return. A compelling true crime, VANISHED AT SEA, is a murder mystery that starts as a missing persons' case and quickly evolves into homicide. In chilling detail, the book recounts Tom and Jackie's deadly voyage, when they begged for their lives before coldly being chained to an anchor and kicked overboard, to their deaths. Authorities are left to figure out how this much-loved retired couple simply disappeared. Could the ship's new owner, Skylar Deleon, be responsible? And is his young, pregnant wife, Jennifer, involved? With little physical evidence to go on, the police, prosecutor, and Hawks family struggle to find out the truth. It's a heart-stopping, page-turning account of the Hawks family's search for justice. This updated edition includes new details on the crime, convictions -- and surprising new evidence on the perverted sexual motivation that may have been behind it all.
