BOOK REVIEW, TOUR & GIVEAWAY - True Crimes You Won't Beleive by Romeo Vitelli
True Crimes You Won't Believe
by Romeo Vitelli
Here is a collection of true crime stories from different countries and time periods that defy simple description. They include:
The strange tale of a psychotic geisha who severed her lover’s genitals to carry as a token of her love and who inspired a cult following
How a small-town murderer helped inspire the movie Psycho and left his hometown with a reputation they never lived down
A father who sacrificed his daughter to prove his faith in God and his followers who fully expected her to be raised on the third day (she wasn’t)
A 19th century serial killer who earned the title of “the worst woman in the world” by killing a series of husbands for profit
The assassination attempt on John F. Kennedy you never heard about but which very nearly succeeded.
George Stinney, the fourteen-year-old child who died in the electric chair for a crime he didn’t commit.
Joseph Vacher, the “French Ripper” whose crimes shocked France but tried to blame it all on the rabid dog that bit him.
How mob boss Vincent Gigante earned himself the nickname of “the Oddfather”
Leonarda Cianciulli, the Corregio “Soapmaker” who killed three women as a sacrifice to protect her own children.
I LOVE crime stories and probably spend way too much time watching tv shows about them. Because of this, I jumped at the chance to read and review this book. This is an exceptional collection of some of the most intriguing crimes committed over the past 200 years or so.
The stories in this book kept me engaged from start to finish because I wanted to know how the case ended. I also delighted in the gruesome details because I find myself wondering, “what kind of a person does this?” Some of these cases are well known while others were new to me. Some handled well, others not so much. The author did a good job of balancing the facts while telling the stories. I look forward to more from this author!
