"Fatal Devotion" -- MaryJane Baker Longo was a devout Jehovah's Witness and mother of three. She and her husband, Christian, a handsome go-getter and great dad, were madly in love. When Christian packed up the family to move across country, MaryJane and the kids happily went along. But what appeared to be a family adventure was something much more sinister: Christian was on the run. Unknown to MaryJane, her husband was a consummate liar and, when under financial pressure, a thief. It had started years earlier with Christian pilfering money from work to pay for MaryJane's engagement ring and escalated to hundreds of thousands of dollars in check fraud and stolen industrial equipment. At every turn, Christian assured MaryJane that everything was fine and, even as they fled their hometown of Ypsilanti, Michigan and dragged their children and few remaining possessions (most stolen) on a manic road trip through cheap motels and apple-pie American tourist destinations, MaryJane's trust never wavered. But in Newport, Oregon, Christian's lies finally caught up with him. What follows was a descent into murder and an international manhunt involving the FBI.

"A Mother's Revenge" -- A young man stumbles across what seems to be a human body in the middle of a cornfield in rural Ohio. The body is so badly decomposed that only dental records can confirm who it is -- 20-year-old Andrew Dotson, whose mother had reported him missing one month earlier. Before his murder, Andrew still felt like the overweight, shy kid he'd been in high-school when he moved with his mom and stepdad to Franklin County, Ohio. It didn't matter that he could be wickedly funny when he was at ease, or that he'd lost the weight and found a devoted girlfriend. What Andrew had craved more than anything was the peer acceptance he'd never had before. For all the signs pointing to a main suspect, it would only be through the tireless efforts of Andrew's mother, Lora Eberhard, that the killer would be brought to justice. She would unearth a tale of multiple shootings, gang rivalries, contract killings, misidentified snitches, jailhouse informants and a string of ruined young lives left in the wreckage.
