"Throughout his long and illustrious career, Mark Bowden has written about crime and was recognized in 2010 with a lifetime achievement award by the International Thriller Writers organization. The Case of the Vanishing Blonde collects six of his most riveting pieces-accounts spanning four decades of searing characters and unsettling tales to illustrate all manner of crimes and the ways technology has progressively altered criminal investigation. From a 1983 story of a campus rape at the University of Pennsylvania that unleashed a debate over the nature of consent when drinking and drugs are involved, to three cold cases featuring the inimitable Long Island private detective Ken Brennan and a startling investigation into a murderer deep within the LAPD's ranks, shielded for twenty-six years by officers keen to protect one of their own, these stories are the work of a masterful narrative journalist at work-gripping true crime from a writer the Washington Post calls "an old pro.""--… (mer)

Mark Bowden's presentation of these six true crime stories keeps the reader engaged. He uses a journalist approach in the telling of these hard core stories, and doesn't fail to give relevant details. In the the "why don't u tell me wht ur into" story of law enforcement's effort to catch internet child predators, a defendant's point of view of entrapment is skillfully handled. Mr Bowden adds the history of the entrapment issue and the US Supreme Court's rulings with an explanation of the "subjective" and "objective" tests that apply to the case, and so giving food for thought while educatiing the reader. In two other stories, insight is given into the role of a private detective; in particular, Ken Brennan, a former policeman who works with police detectives to find the solution to cold cases. This is an informative and interesting book on how things in the efforts to bring about justice work in the real world. ( )

Bowden is at his best here! Six fast-reading, intriguing true crime stories that will keep you interested. Guaranteed you will not be able to put this aside. I really enjoyed his "Doctor Dealer" and "Killing Pablo" books, but here he really shines. And I really hope that, someday, he does an entire book on his private detective friend, Ken Brennan! ( )
