For True Crime Readers, The Numbers Tell the Story, Click Through to Buy Below!

Bound to Die is the true crime story of Florida serial killer Bobby Joe Long, who was convicted of the heinous killings of nine women in 1984 in the Tampa Bay area. The first body of 19-year-old disco dancer Lana Long was found in a field on Mother’s Day with her legs grotesquely ripped apart. Six months later, the bloody rampage ended when the ninth victim was discovered. All had been tortured with ropes and savagely beaten and raped. The killer’s confession of his crimes is haunting. The vividly rendered results of his trials and appeals are equally shocking.

First published by Kensington, NY in 1995, Bound to Die was internationally recognized. It received seven mass media printings and was issued in hardback as a Doubleday Mystery Guild Book Club selection. This second edition features a new foreword on a capital case which is still considered a definitive example of excellent police detection before DNA.

Multiple television presentations have been made based on this book, some including the author’s participation. Shortly after first publication, a documentary based on the case was shown on Medical Detective that aired sporadically for years. In 2012, this story became the pilot for the new show Killer Profile on the Biography Channel.

New Crime Fiction: ‘Hidden Agenda’ by Peter Berman

     Jeremy Hart, a senior prosecutor in the LA District Attorney’s office, is a young widower whose grief counselor sends him to a charity party to jump-start his social life. At the party, he meets Claire, a young married woman with two small children who is trapped in a loveless marriage to Peter, a very wealthy and abusive man. When a courtship develops between Jeremy and Claire, Claire’s violent husband Peter discovers the affair. After a brutal beating, Claire confides to Jeremy that she believes that Peter is planning on taking her life.
     When Claire’s husband is found shot to death in the driveway of his home, detective Ulysses S. Gibson and his partner Jennifer Donahue are called to investigate the murder. For the prosecutor, the crime is an easy conviction when all the leads of the investigation point to Jeremy.
     For detectives Gibson and Donahue, nothing is so obvious. How are these individuals connected? And what of the death of Jeremy’s wife, Elizabeth, years go? Gibson and Donahue keep the scales of justice in balance as they discover everyone’s ‘Hidden Agenda.’

What readers are saying…

“‘Hidden Agenda’ by Peter S. Berman is an amazing five-star crime-thriller/courtroom drama novel! It keeps the reader engaged, with plenty of dialogue, brilliant characters and most importantly, a dramatic storyline…’Hidden Agenda’ is beautifully woven together and is written in such a way that it is easy for the reader to follow and yet produces an engrossing story…I would love to read another story by Peter S. Berman. I can only hope that he will create another great crime novel with these fantastic detectives…

you will not be disappointed with ‘Hidden Agenda’!”  
          – Caroline Barker, A Reader’s Review

 

“Let me just give the author his due credit here. Nowhere does the novel become boring, repetitive or draggy. It is fast paced and will continue to have your attention and interest – as the truth is shred to pieces and lies are cloaked…All in all, the novel did make a good and intriguing read and I would surely recommend it.”
          – Shewta Singh, Reader

 

“As an avid crime (fiction) reader I have to admit that I was immediately drawn into the story.  The plot makes you want to continue without interruptions.  Hart, Gibson, and Donahue are characters you can easily become familiar with. The cleverly elaborated plot steers the readers through different stages of sympathies and antipathies; the desire to shake one’s head as well as to giving the thumbs up on certain occasions. Explaining more insights might lead to spoilers.  Therefore, just note this:  A must read for all crime fans. I definitely consider “Hidden Agenda” as movie material.”
