Killer Case Files (Killer Case Files #4)
By Jamie Malton
Genre: Non-Fiction True Crime
Release Date: 1 November, 2022

Shocking and brutal true crimes against innocent victims who deserve to have their stories remembered.

A true crime anthology of 20 stories, Killer Case Files delivers gripping accounts of depraved and horrifying murders. These killers can range from seemingly normal people to psychopaths and serial killers who commit years of murder and mayhem.

Follow law enforcement as they use forensic science and old school detective skills to identify and apprehend these violent criminals, deviant predators, and serial killers.

20 Shocking Stories in Each Volume

Volume 4 includes . . .
Death in the Desert: A girl walking to high school in Las Vegas was found dead after being viciously sexually assaulted. The case went cold for thirty two years until a local philanthropist donated $5,000 to a company specializing in DNA genomics - stipulating that it be used on a cold case. Soon, not one, but two murders were solved.
A Nun Killer: In 1981 an elderly nun was murdered in her bedroom. In 1992 a young man was executed for her murder. That much is certain. What is not certain is whether the convicted and executed man was really guilty.
Just a Drifter: When a twenty-two year old woman goes missing while walking her dog it doesn’t take long for solid clues to lead to a senior citizen who is a drifter. But police can’t help wondering whether a drifter in his sixties has finally committed his first murder, or whether he’s previously committed several others.
Washington Axe Murderer: A beautiful area of Seattle, popular with both locals and tourists, had its residents living in fear during the summer of 1990 as an axe murderer stalked the neighborhood and left terrifying messages inside homes.

. . . plus 16 more shocking, true crime murder stories from Jamie Malton's Best True Crime.

If you enjoy the books from top authors like Jack Rosewood, Robert Keller, and Jason Neal – you’ll love Jamie Malton’s Best True Crime series.

Each volume in this series includes a 21st bonus chapter and additional supporting Case Files from every story - available free at the author’s website, where readers can join the author to dive further into additional photos, news reports and disturbing specifics of each case.

A Word of Warning
The explicit details of these murders come directly from eyewitness accounts, interviews, police reports, court transcripts, crime scenes, and autopsy reports. They contain disturbing facts that may not be for everyone.


My Review
Killer Case Files Vol. 4 is the first book I've read in this series, but it won't be the last. As someone who was obsessed (probably a bit too much) with true crime as a teenager, and still finds it morbidly fascinating to this day, I was both excited and apprehensive about reading this. 
I should note that recently, my husband has been watching a couple different YouTubers who do conspiracy theory podcasts and true crime podcasts, and we discuss the latter on occasion. And a few days before I started reading this, there was a case mentioned in the one podcast about a trucker who outfitted his trailer as a torture chamber. Lo and behold, there was a case within the pages of this book about a trucker who used his trailer to do verry bad things to young women. And the crazy thing is, they were two separate cases. My husband and I spent a lot of time comparing the two. There really are some sick people in the world. 
Anyway... back to my review...
I found this collection of true crime stories to be both fascinating and disturbing. There was a story about Amityville that focused on the original family who lived there, which I thought was cool, considering most people only know about what happened with the Lutz family after they bought the house. The other nineteen cases mentioned in the book were all new to me, and I found a couple of them to be a bit sad (like the teenager who was murdered by her two friends), but most of them were kind of shocking. It makes you wonder about people and why they feel the need to kill others. As a teenager, I wanted to study them and learn more about why people killed, but I ultimately decided against that career path. Now, I just prefer to read the occasional true crime story and discuss it with my husband instead. 
If you're a morbid weirdo like me who enjoys reading about true crime, check out Killer Case Files Vol. 4 (and the other volumes too). You won't be disappointed.
4.5 stars!
