THE SEX SLAVE MURDERS chronicles the kidnapping-murders of
serial killers Gerald and Charlene Gallego.
A marriage made in hell...
Barely five feet tall, sweet and innocent looking, Charlene Gallego used all of
her charms to beguile pretty teenage girls and young women into the back of a van, where her lethal
husband, Gerald, lay waiting.
A killer couple bound together by secrets, lies, and sex slave fantasies...
Married multiple times and still in his early thirties, Gerald Gallego found
the perfect companion in Charlene. Over a grisly period of twenty-six months,
their bloody and brutal rampage of kidnapping, rape, and murder spanned three
states and claimed eleven lives.
In this much more frightening than fiction tale of domination, depraved lust,
substance abuse, violence, and murder, bestselling criminologist R. Barri
Flowers tells the whole story of a couple's twisted relationship, their ghastly
crimes and ability to elude the law, how they were finally captured, and the
two riveting trials that ultimately pitted wife against husband with the stakes
higher than either once imagined in their murderous bond..

A man murders the first four infants he fathers with his lover, then tries again with a fifth. Two men have three things in common: each commits what seems like a perfect murder, each marries his victim’s wife far too soon, each has an overdue appointment with the gallows. A man cuts up the body of his victim into little pieces and gets away with the crime until he slaughters another neighbour six years later.
Practically Perfect details the crimes of killers who very nearly got away with perfect murders, including the tale of Marie Beaulne, who laced her husband’s food with poison, only to be found out when a priest recalled someone else dying that way in his village. Each tale provides specific details on the planning of each murder, the events leading up to the discovery of the criminal, and the results of the trial, usually resulting in an execution.
Then, fourteen years after the killing started, an investigator who had been assigned the cold case brought to it a renewed dedication, and came upon a chance discovery. Searching through the yellowed case files, he caught a minor detail that suggested one more suspect. Faryion Wardrip was an unhappily married family man who drowned his anger in substance abuse and violent fantasies. But for five unfortunate families, the drugs sometimes took over and the fantasies became realities.
Investigator John Little followed his instincts and tirelessly ruled out every possibility until he was left with but one conclusion: Faryion Wardrip was the serial killer who had eluded his office for so long. How he tracked down Wardrip and used the legal system to beat the killer at his own game of deception is a remarkable story of justice served.
Deadly Hunk--For women with a yen for macho men, Darren Dee O'Neall seemed the kind of guy romantic dreams were made of. Strong, handsome, smooth talking, with an array of tattoos adding to his masculine aura, he came on as a rugged outdoorsman looking for a mate. But in reality, O'Neall was a nightmare of savage, sexually violent crimes that put him on the FBI's Most Wanted list.
Here is the bone-chilling true story of the twisted killer whose masterful ability to change appearances confounded authorities again and again...and a mother's agonizing search for her missing daughter. It is the story, too, of the brilliant police work and startling psychic detection that teamed with a family's outrage to bring him to justice. But it was too late for the young woman whose dream of a hunk "to die for" became a chilling reality!
