Staff Pick by Michaela H.

Could anyone really be friends with a serial killer? Could you?

Most people would answer this question with a resounding “no.” Bestselling true-crime writer M. William Phelps felt that way, too. But that changed.

DANGEROUS GROUND is an eye-opening, mind-boggling true story of what happened when Phelps undertook a working relationship with a notorious serial killer who served as a consultant on Phelps’s Investigation Discovery series, Dark Minds. During five years of letters, emails, phone calls, and personal and Skype visits, something surprising happened.  The killer revealed details of his crimes to Phelps that he had never revealed before. And Phelps found  unexpected insights into his family’s history of addiction and tragedy, which had culminated in the murder of his sister-in-law years before.

After working with M. William Phelps on over twenty previous books, I have long had the highest respect for his skills as a writer and investigative journalist.  Now he has raised the bar with this intensely personal and revelatory true-crime memoir, which is sure to be compared with FATAL VISION and THE EXECUTIONER’S SONG. This stunning narrative, written from the heart, is an instant classic.
