Product Description

From R. Barri Flowers, award-winning criminologist and international bestselling author of The Sex Slave Murders, comes a riveting true crime short, The Pickaxe Killers.

Having written about hundreds of notable murders in his bestselling true crime book, Murders In The United States: Crimes, Killer and Victims of the Twentieth Century, one case that stood out to Flowers for its sheer brutality as well as shocking aftermath was that of Karla Faye Tucker and Daniel Garrett, who used a pickaxe to hack to death two people.

It began in the wee hours of June 13, 1983, in Houston, Texas, as lovers Tucker and Garrett broke into the apartment of Jerry Lynn Dean. By the time the couple left, Dean and his companion, Deborah Thornton, were dead following a vicious attack with a pickaxe and hammer.

In this 8000 word tale of revenge, murder, substance abuse, betrayal, and redemption, the author gets to the root of the violent crime that ended four lives and gripped the entire country as it’s sordid details and shocking twists and turns played out over fifteen years.

As a bonus, included is a complete true crime story on the sexually-motivated Canadian serial killer intimates Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo from R. Barri Flowers’ bestselling true crime book, Serial Killer Couples: Bonded by Sexual Depravity, Abduction, and Murder.

An added bonus is an excerpt from The Sex Slave Murders, in which the author probes into the lives of married serial killers Gerald and Charlene Gallego and the sex slave fantasies that fueled their abduction and murder of young women.
