In The Perfect Father, New York Times bestselling author John Glatt reveals the tragedy of the Watts family, whose seemingly perfect lives played out on social media-but the truth would lead to a vicious and heartbreaking murder. In the early morning hours of August 13th, 2018, Shanann Watts was dropped off at home by a colleague after returning from a business trip. It was the last time anyone would see her alive. By the next day, Shanann and her two young daughters, Bella and Celeste, had been reported missing, and her husband, Chris Watts, was appearing on the local news, pleading for his family's safe return.But Chris Watts already knew that he would never see his family again. Less than 24 hours after his desperate plea, Watts made a shocking confession to police: he had strangled his pregnant wife to death and smothered their daughters, dumping their bodies at a nearby oil site. Heartbroken friends and neighbors watched in shock as the movie-star handsome, devoted family man they knew was arrested and charged with first degree murder. The mask Chris had presented to the world in his TV interviews and the family's Facebook accounts was slipping-and what lay beneath was a horrifying image of instability, infidelity, and boiling rage.In this first major account of the case, bestselling author and journalist John Glatt reveals the truth behind the tragedy and constructs a chilling portrait of one of the most shocking family annihilator cases of the 21st century.
From best-selling horror author Iain Rob Wright comes his scariest novel yet. Is it possible to infect a place with evil? Are some atrocities so awful that the land itself becomes contaminated? And what would happened if you found yourself trapped in such a place? What begins with a car crash on an ancient bridge ends with the ultimate sacrifice. Follow the survivors of a horrific accident as they try to understand their fates and find rescue. A rescue that should have already come. Tom and Sophie Sumner have been married for 10 years. They won't make it to 11. Infidelity and neglect have torn their relationship apart, and they part ways today. Sophie is going home to the village she grew up - Cottontree. If there's any chance of Tom persuading her to give their marriage one last chance, it's now. But Cottontree is a place with a much darker past than anybody knows, and the Sumners are about to have much bigger problems than their marriage.
