The second-best book to give for Christmas 2019

Black Dahlia – Red Rose

Black Dahlia- Red Rose

With Black Dahlia – Red Rose, you give your true crime friend a book that might forever be a mystery even though this book provides an idea to what might have happened to Elizabeth Short. Black Dahlia – Red Rose is not an ordinary real crime book the case is even to this day a historical mystery.

The author, Piu Eatwell, made a massive investigation into the unsolved case of the Black Dahlia murder. The book felt like watching a documentary while reading through the pages. It was to say it mildly a fascinating journey going back in time visiting some of the places where Elizabeth Short spent her too-short life.

In the book, some crime scenes get described graphically.  Like when Piu Eatwell takes a look at The Aster Motelthat might be the place where Miss. Short was murdered and mutilated. This book will be an excellent gift for the friend or family member who is into unsolved cases with a hint of mystery.

John E Douglas and Mark Olshaker wrote The Killer Across the Table. This book allows the reader to get into the mind of four killers. The four killers are less known even though some real crime enthusiasts might have heard about serial killer Todd Kohlhepp.
