Eleven women went missing over the spring and summer of 1988 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, an old fishing port known as the Whaling City, where Moby Dick, Frederick Douglass, textile mills, and heroin-dealing represent just a few of the many threads in the community's diverse fabric. In Shallow Graves, investigative reporter Maureen Boyle tells the story of a case that has haunted New England for 30 years.

This book was good to listen to. I like the murders to be solved (my preference), this was not. Still, I liked it.

Before John Glenn orbited the Earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as "human computers" used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets and astronauts into space. Among these problem solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation.

This Book Shows The Infancy of a FBI Profiler

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-06-17

Though this book needed to be stopped on occasion, it still shows how murders react to stimulus. You get the Profilers reasoning for their conclusions. This is the second book I've listened to by this author. It shows Profiling and how it came about with different cases.
