Wednesday Crime segment welcomes
Steve Jackson could be described as a man’s man, handsomely rugged with an adventurous lifestyle, living in the mountains of Colorado. He has travelled globally as a journalist and has received numerous national and regional awards for feature writing and investigative reporting. From climbing mountains, fly fishing in the wild, to exploring the graves of the Romonov’s in Russia, Steve Jackson is always up for something new!
The recent re-release of Jackson’s 1998 New York Times Best Seller, MONSTER, brings new information to the story of serial killer Thomas Luther and the brutal reality of the fate of the women who loved him. It details the efforts of a determined detective and family members of murder victim, Cher Elder, and their tireless pursuit to find her grave and bring her killer to justice.
As an avid reader of true crime, I will declare that this is one of the best written pieces of work that I have read short of the infamous Ann Rule works.
This book contains the tale of Tom Luther is able to manipulate women with his good looks and his imaginitive story telling; especially Debra Snider, who fell hard and fast for this sexually sadistic loser. The author holds nothing back from the reader on the viciousness of his crime against Cher Elder and many other women; some of whom is only suspected of harming. In addition, readers are given a walk into the hearts and minds of Cher Elder’s parents as they struggle to deal with the death of their daughter and the capture of her killer. As you walk through these vicious crimes and feel the torment of Elder’s parents, readers are also given insight into how a normal, education, married mother of two (Snider) can fall in love with someone so evil; and even after learning that the evil remains, still loving that person unconditionally……Kim Cantrell
