Sam Little, the FBI’s most prolific serial killer roamed free for five decades, murdering women at will. But in 2012 he came to the attention of Detective Mitzi Roberts and everything changed. This opportunistic killer had long stayed below law enforcement’s radar because of the victims he chose: Women from the fringe — drug users and sex workers paid little attention to by society. Murder Book Season 2: The Women Who Stopped Sam Little follows this Los Angeles Police Department cold case investigator's relentless hunt for Little across the country to capture and convict him with the help of a group of equally fierce women that included a prosecutor, a writer and several women who survived brutal attacks from Little.

Chapter 4. Season 2

Thanks for the actual witness/survivor testimonies.
There is spunk and grit in these stories that sadden and uplift at once.
What could these people’s lives have been if life circumstances had been more blessed with advantages most of us assume are ours without question?

Again Than you.

Excellent

True to Michael Connelly Form, it’s good. If you’re like me and a huge fan this will definitely give you some insight to his Character Development in his Bosch Series.

Captivating podcast

I enjoyed the first season of Murder Book and I’m anxious every Monday to listen to the next episode of this season’s podcast. What a relief that Detectives Jackson and Roberts fought to bring this murderer to justice!
