"James Renner is genuine. He cares about these victims. They have become a part of him. He’s not writing from a distance with apathetic cynicism. He’s right in the heart of the cases, digging and searching for answers. When it comes to true crime, this is the kind of writer we need." -- Crime Shadow News
"Renner doesn't just tell these stories. He gets involved in them, often taking a stab at trying to solve them as he did in the Amy Mihaljevic case . . . Most of the mysteries are as enticing as any you are likely to see on any network crime show." -- The News Journal
Investigative journalist James Renner cracks open 13 of Northeast Ohio’s most intriguing unsolved crimes, including the 1964 murder of Garfield Heights teen Beverly Jarosz; the West Side disappearances of Georgina DeJesus and Amanda Berry; the mysterious suicide (or murder?) of Joseph Kupchik; and ten other equally haunting tales. These stories venture into dark alleys and seedy strip clubs, as well as comfortable suburbs and cozy small towns, where some of the region’s most horrendous crimes have occurred. Renner’s unblinking eye for detail and unwavering search for the truth make this book a gripping read.
