    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

Book Review: The Crime Book by Cathy Scott and DK

This book is like a crime encyclopedia of crime in one volume. It was researched very well, using crimes from before the 1700s. Excellent and detailed examples and explanations. There were a lot of high profile examples, too. For example, for the robbers, there was Jesse James and Bonnie and Clyde and the Great Train Robbery. There were many International examples too. For Arson there was John Orr and the Antwerp Diamond Heist. Con Artists such as Doris Payne. So many others! I found it fascinating. Honestly, I had not heard of many of these people, so it was fun to learn about them. What crime encyclopedia would be without a large section on organized crime. This book gave a lot of information on the roots of organized crime and the different families and people in power. And yes, there is a large section on murder. Many high profile cases, such as Lizzie Borden, Elizabeth Short, Manson Family, “Dingo got my baby”, John Lennon, and many others. Including ones I personally had not heard of. There there are the serial killers. Who does not like to read about serial killers (when you like to read true crime)? Ted Bundy, Brady & Hindley, and Jeffrey Dahmer. There is more to the book, and it is well worth reading. It is well written and well researched. Simply put, it is a must read.
