Abe thought he was ready for this. He’d watched the movies, read the books, and prepared accordingly. But when the monsters arrived, he realized Hollywood didn’t get all the facts right. Some of these zombies are not your father’s zombies — not even close. Maybe it’s because the source isn’t a virus, but a fungus? Or that it was synthesized in a laboratory? But who would attempt something so dastardly? How many lives will be lost when humans manipulate what they should have left alone? But the real question, the one the world will desperately seek to answer: Who do you turn to when monsters are eating you alive? Well, unfortunately for you, it’s Abe and he really doesn’t care what your name is. He’ll just forget it anyway because he’s, well, he’s Abe. But he’s the guy you want on your apocalypse survival team, or maybe not. You’ll have to decide that for yourself. The worst of it lurks in New York City, hundreds of miles away from Abe’s suburban Northeast Ohio home. And it’s an evil no one is ready for. So let me ask you this: What if your flesh was seasoned by your fear of the monsters hunting you in the dark?

Emily hires me to find a match for him, since Adrian is the most influential guy in the city, this job could save my dying business.
Challenge accepted, except our personalities clash, our first meeting was a head-butting match, only proving two things:
1. Adrian’s an un-date-able, stubborn, old mule.
2. He wears his dislike for me and my generation on his sleeve.

But he’s old enough to be my dad. Off-limits. And if his stepdaughter finds out, I’ll lose everything.

I’ve scoured the dark and disturbing archives of true crime to present an anthology of cases that even the most informed crime followers may not have encountered before.

I’ll unravel the grisly story of a seemingly ordinary (aren’t they always?) individual who carried out monstrous acts of depravity. His acts were so violent and senseless, you’ll find yourself wondering how people like this become so monstrous. His dark desires would lead to a series of terrible acts that saw the criminal get away with his crimes – until he decided to taunt the police. Would his overconfidence be his downfall? You’ll learn about the twisted tale of a woman whose desperation for motherhood led her down a path of wicked deception and murder. The culprit in this case made herself appear pregnant, showed friends and family fake ultrasounds and went as far as having a gender reveal party for the baby she wasn’t having. This tragic tale culminates in a truly barbaric and gruesome crime pulled straight out of a nightmare.
Update: March 30, 2023: America’s Savior, Donald J Trump, indicted on this day, marking a modern type of cruxifiction follwed by two failed impeachments. Update October 29 2020: As the charming sisters Diamond and Silk observed, “No weapon formed against” God’s anointed “shall prosper.” President Trump has withstood every weapon formed against him -from a plethora of slander and libel -to history’s largest American criminal investigation -to an unrighteous impeachment trial. Even the worst pandemic in a century couldn’t defeat Donald J. Trump after infecting him. Update December 15 2019: During the third week of December 2019, The United States House of Representatives is set to impeach Donald J. Trump, the 45th duly elected US president. While not as dramatic as the crucifixion of Jesus the Christ, impeachment brings to mind the justifiable fear of and unjustifiable hatred that both messiahs have had to endure.
