Kurzbeschreibung

New From New York Times Bestselling True Crime Author Steve Jackson
Three murders. Thirty years of dead ends. Until one rookie investigator began piecing it all together.

One morning in July 1974, Anita Andrews, the owner and bartender at Fagiani’s Cocktail Lounge in Napa, California was found dead in her bar–raped, beaten, and stabbed to death in a bloody frenzy. She’d last been seen alive the night before talking to a drifter who sat at the end of the bar, playing cards and flirting with her. But the stranger, along with Anita’s Cadillac, had disappeared. Unable to locate a suspect, police investigators sadly watched the case grow cold over the years.

"Jackson writes with muscle and heart.--New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen

Meanwhile a month after Anita’s murder, young Michele Wallace, was driving down a road in the mountains near Crested Butte, Colorado, when she gave two stranded motorists, Chuck Matthews and a man named Roy, a ride. Dropping Matthews off at a bar in Gunnison, she agreed to take “Roy” to his truck. She was never seen alive again, nor could a massive search of the mountains locate her remains. The trail leading to her killer also ran into deadends.

Fourteen years later, Charlotte Sauerwin, engaged to be married, met a smooth-talking man at a Laundromat in Livingston Parish, Louisiana. The next evening, her body was found in the woods; she’d been raped, tortured, and her throat slashed. The police suspected her fiance, Vince LeJeune, though he proclaimed his innocence to anyone who would listen. Meanwhile, the man from the Laundromat couldn’t be located.

The three murders would remain unsolved, eating at the hearts, minds and lives of the women’s families, friends and communities. Then in the early 1990s, a rookie Gunnison County sheriff’s investigator named Kathy Young began looking into the Wallace case and identified a suspect named Roy Melanson, a serial rapist from Texas. It would lead her and other investigators looking into murders and rapes in other states to a serial killer who struck again and again with seeming impunity. SMOOTH TALKER is the story of Melanson, his depredations, and the intrepid police work that went into bringing him to justice not just in Colorado, but California and Louisiana.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Best-selling and award-winning author and journalist Steve Jackson has written nine non-fiction books in true crime, history and biography genres; he has also written a dozen crime fiction thrillers for the "Butch Karp Series" in collaboration with former New York assistant district attorney Robert K. Tanenbaum. In August 2014, he and a partner, Michael Cordova, launched a publishing company, WildBluePress.com, which as of Spring 2015 has a half-dozen best-selling and award-winning authors publishing true crime and crime fiction books. The company is rapidly expanding both the number of authors and number of titles, and will be moving into other genres in the Summer 2015. In April 2014, WildBlue Press released an updated version of Jackson's true crime classic NO STONE UNTURNED for the first time in eBook and audiobook. His first book for WildBlue Press was the bestselling BOGEYMAN, which was published in August 2014. His first non-fiction book, MONSTER, a true crime, was published in October 1998 and within two weeks became a NYTimes bestseller. In 2003, his World War II dramatic narrative, LUCKY LADY, received The Colorado Book Award, best biography/history, from the Colorado Center for the Book; Lucky Lady was also the runner-up that year for the Admiral Samuel Morrison Naval History Award. In June 2013, Jackson joined forensic investigative team NecroSearch International, the group featured in NO STONE UNTURNED, searching for the remains of the Grand Duke Mikhail Romanov in Perm, Russia as part of his research for an upcoming dramatic history FINDING ANASTASIA. He and the team will return to Russia to continue the search in June 2015. Born in Bethesda Naval Hospital in 1955, Jackson grew up in Hawaii and Colorado. He graduated in 1979 from Colorado State University with a BA in Journalism. A newspaper journalist for 25 years, he worked in locales as varied as Montana, Hawaii, Guam, Micronesia, Indonesia, Indiana, Washington D.C., Florida, Oregon and Colorado. During his career with newspapers, he received numerous national and regional awards for feature writing and investigative reporting. He lives and works in the mountains of Colorado. Outside of writing, his interests include backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, guitar, reading, softball, music, wine, beer and spending time with his family and friends.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Steve Jackson at his finest 11. April 2016
Von FL book lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Warning- once you start this book you will not be able to put it down. I was drawn into the marvelous storytelling by Steve Jackson and couldn't stop reading till I finished. "SMOOTH TALKER" tells the story of Roy Melanson, who for decades raped and killed women all over the country The heartbreak of the families of each victim are described with great compassion and sensitivity. I felt I personally knew each person in this book. Thank God for DNA and the amazing law enforcement teams who were relentless in solving these crimes.

I really like how Mr. Jackson not only describes the rapist/killer. But how in depth his descriptions of the victims and their families are, and everything they went through. He also excellently explains all the hard work and dedication of all the various law enforcement agencies to catch this monster.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another excellent Steve Jackson book! 11. April 2016
Von Lee Husemann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Roy Menanson was a smooth talking charmer who crisscrossed the country robbing, raping and murdering women. He served some time for various crimes including rape but was always released to continue on with his crime spree. The book also describes how the families of some of the victims tried to cope with their losses while waiting patiently for justice to be served for their loved ones. This is a real page turner and I highly recommend it.

Von Marlene fabregas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
What a fantastic read. This book was extremely hard to put down once I started. Roy Melanson spent decades killing, raping women all over the country. He is what I call a sociopath. He was convicted of certain crimes, yet still managed to be released and continue his terror spree. It was so sad to read about the families who's lives he destroyed, and how they had to cope with their tragedies. A must read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book 15. Juni 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of reviewing it.
If you are looking for a quick, good and fascinating true crime read, this is definitely a book for you.
Steve Jackson's writing style is clear and easy to follow, nothing too gory but not shying away from the reality either. When I started reading I had a hard time putting it down so I went through the book quite quickly. I wouldn't have minded if it had been just a little bit longer and if it had gone a bit deeper into the story, but I don't feel like anything major was missed or skipped over.
My only minor issue with the book is the fact that I found a number of spelling errors that could have been prevented. That being said, I do consider this a minor flaw so it didn't bother me all that much.
Anyhow, this is a good book to get if you're interested in true crime.
