Murder in the Heartland: Book Four by Harry Spiller
In a place where murder isn’t supposed to happen—Southern Illinois—deputy sheriff and investigator Harry Spiller learned the hard reality: murder is all around us. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a big city or small county with farms and churches—murder is swift and can happen to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. All too often, victims fall prey in places we think are safe to raise our families, where we take walks on hot summer nights, where our children play in the park or yard without concern, and where we leave our doors unlocked at night.
Murder in the Heartland, Book 4 tells the stories of innocent victims in these seemingly innocent places. From his research and investigations of five murder cases, Spiller recounts gruesome details of a homicidal beating of an 8-year-old child and the two week-long trial that followed, a domestic violence abuse case that ended in murder.
