Amish Murder
False Confessions

…American society and what it extracts from the body and the mind and the soul can grow very special monsters…

Charles Bukowski

 Most crime stories are ultimately about the doer….We are fascinated by the exact details of their crimes, but what we hope those details finally add up to is an understanding of why they did what they did….Crime writers have always known that their best subjects were completely sane. Their stories show how and why perfectly sane people do supposedly insane things.

Mark Bowden

In writing of crime, one is writing of American life in extremis.

Joyce Carol Oates

The murder-for-hire cases discussed in this section of the web site do not involve killings ordered by the Mafia, drug lords or street gangs.  The more interesting, and  most common form of contract murder involves masterminds with little or no experience as criminals, amateur hitmen, and victims who don’t see it coming. What the masterminds and their assassins lack in criminal professionalism, they make up in desperation, boldness, foolhardiness, and homicidal passion.
