Saving Lucy

By Hilary Smith

Can she get a second chance and find redemption after a terrible act of violence? Two years after Lucy’s mother died in a horrifying car crash, something good finally happened to Lucy, or so she thought. Someone good. And gorgeous, too. Her name was Mackenzie Rizzo, they met in an 18 and up nightclub. Lucy was confident that she has found what she’s been missing in her life – until she learned that Mackenzie was already married. Two years of secret meetings and heartbreakingly disappointing weekends later, it seemed that Lucy found someone who would give her everything that she lacked in her relationship with Mackenzie: Damien Coleman. Juggling him and Mackenzie quickly became effortless but wasn’t meant to last: soon after she met Damien’s older sister, a new heartbreak followed, and all Lucy could think about was revenge. But after revenge – after an unforgivable act of violence – came heartfelt remorse, and with it, a strong desire to make amends and clear her conscience. Is it even possible, after what’s Lucy’s done? Will she get a chance to rid herself of the stain of revenge, and find her way back to her true self – a young girl just looking for love and acceptance – or is her soul lost forever?

True Crime Biographies: Ted Bundy, Edmund Kemper, H. H. Holmes, Charles Manson, Jack the Ripper

By Hourly History

Ted Bundy: Ted Bundy is one of America’s most notorious serial killers. Between the mid and late 1970s, Bundy admitted to the murders of more than thirty young women and girls across the American states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. Reports of Bundy’s murders reached the police and trickled down through the press to ordinary citizens; panic ensued. Yet while the killings were taking place, no-one could see that the string of brutal murders happening all over the northwest of America was perpetrated by the same man. Ted Bundy’s story does not end with his capture, nor does it end with his trial and conviction. Even moments before he was executed by electric chair, the most notorious serial killer in U.S. history revealed more crimes and more victims. We will never know the true number of Bundy’s victims.
