“If you like true crime with something extra, The Best New True Crime Stories: Partners in Crime delivers. The crimes and criminals are compelling enough, but what sets these tales apart is the attention to setting and social milieu. Each crime is a product of its time and place, and context is enriched by digressions into the deprivations of wartime London, the pros, and cons of using strychnine vs. arsenic on sheep farms in New Zealand, and a British version of The Americans featuring an antiquarian bookseller and his amateur photographer wife. An altogether enjoyable and instructive romp.” —Stephanie Kane, crime writer
“When a human being decides to commit murder, that portion of society within their reach has a major problem. But when two killers are drawn together and decide to commit the unthinkable, cities, towns, and rural settings will soon find themselves in a living nightmare. And such is the case with The Best New True Crime Stories: Partners in Crime! Within these pages, you’ll read about true-life murderers, as well as those who only haunt the chilling works of fiction, written by authors who understand well the mindset of the murderer. Read this book!” —Kevin M. Sullivan, author of The Bundy Murders: A Comprehensive History
“From Bittaker and Norris to Fred and Rosemary West, we are all too familiar with the deadly effects of partnerships in crime. The true crime stories in this collection range from wartime London to late-twentieth-century Australia, from noir narrative to a disquisition on the use of strychnine as a poison, but all of them focus on the evil that can arise when potential killers meet. Fascinating, shocking—and highly recommended.” —Danuta Kot, author of the East Riding series
