5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 19 Jan 2007
Okay , I admit that I am crazy about Burl Barer. I keep a Burl Barer book by my bedside, and enjoy everything between the covers. :-) Body Count is the true story of the Spokane Serial Killer, Robert Lee Yates, Jr. Mostly he killed women of "high risk lifestyles" because they were disposable (to him). Barer does a masterful job of revealing his victims as real women with real families, lives, hopes, and problems other than being murdered by Mr. Yates. Anyone who reads true crime MUST own this book.
The "Saint": A Complete History in Print, Radio, F&hellip by Burl Barer
This book is a treasure! Any fan of the Famous Simon Templar will want this incredible compendium of everything Saintly. Granted complete use of the Leslie Charteris Collection at Boston University, Burl Barer brings us a brilliant and insightful analysis of the Saint's complete history -- from Charteris' first books up to (but not including) the Val Kilmer film.

Illustrated with many rare photos, THE SAINT: A COMPLETE HISTORY is everything the name suggests.

Burl Barer, perhaps America's finest true-crime investigative journalist, gives us a shocking story of murder and madness that is as much "legal thriller" as it is a traditional "true crime" book. The corruption and misconduct of the prosecution in this case was so shocking that not only was there a mistrial declared (one out of three, followed by appeals to the State Supreme Court), but the defense attorney became so outraged that he filed for the prosecutor's job in the next election -- and won!

Barer takes us into a bizarre world of thrill killings, senseless beheadings, and equally insane "legal" behavior that mirrors the irrationality of the killers. For true crime readers… Read more
