You Can't Leave Me Now

You Can't Leave Me Now

Three Stories of True Crime

by Laura McNeal


The victims in these gripping stories have one terrifying thing in common: all are betrayed by people they trust.

In The Death of Judy Huscher, a 12-year-old girl is awakened in the night by her mother, who offers her a cup of hot chocolate.

In The Last Meeting of the Dove Club, two friends stay for dinner even though their host is dangerously drunk.

In The Toothpicks, a member of a Mexican drug cartel introduces his unsuspecting friend to the pretty girl who will lead him to a San Diego rental house stocked with guns, rope, and muriatic acid.

In scene after harrowing scene, McNeal recounts every extraordinary detail of these unforgettable crimes, their prosecution, and aftermath, reminding us that in life, as in fiction, all is not as it appears.
