The Book of Cold Cases pdf Book Summary by Simone St. James
In 1977, Claire Lake, Oregon, was shaken by the Lady Killer Murders: Two men, seemingly randomly, were murdered with the same gun, with strange notes left behind. Beth Greer was the perfect suspect—a rich, eccentric twenty-three-year-old woman, seen fleeing one of the crimes. But she was acquitted, and she retreated to the isolation of her mansion.
Oregon, 2017. Shea Collins is a receptionist, but by night, she runs a true crime website, the Book of Cold Cases—a passion fueled by the attempted abduction she escaped as a child. When she meets Beth by chance, Shea asks her for an interview. To Shea’s surprise, Beth says yes.
They meet regularly at Beth’s mansion, though Shea is never comfortable there. Items move when she’s not looking, and she could swear she’s seen a girl outside the window. The allure of learning the truth about the case from the smart, charming Beth is too much to resist, but even as they grow closer, Shea senses something isn’t right. Is she making friends with a manipulative murderer, or are there other dangers lurking in the darkness of the Greer house?

I read this straight through.
I said that the author’s last book was “horror with a heart” and you could that about The Book of Cold Cases as well. A supernatural mystery with great characters / character development. There are several characters in the book that I came to care about. The pacing was great. I found myself constantly thinking that I knew what everything was leading to only to change my mind.
Ms. Simone has a way of unfolding her plots that is unique in my experience. You get to find out what happens to the characters instead of simply being left with a photo finish in the last 20 pages.
Really enjoyed this. I’m thinking now at going back to read some of her earlier books.

The Book of Cold Cases pdf book is the best Simone St. James book I’ve read to date, although The Sundown Motel is a close second. The complex characters and atmospheric setting are as intriguing as the fresh plot. This book explores the nuances of human responses to trauma, including fear, guilt, and learning to trust ourselves again. It also invites the reader to examine whether evil is innate or learned, nature vs. nurture. Readers of mysteries with a supernatural element and true crime aficionados will enjoy this excellent story.
Shea, a part-time true crime blogger, gets the opportunity to interview a woman, Beth, accused of being a serial killer but acquitted at trial in the 1970s. The crimes remain unsolved and Shea can’t refuse the chance to explore, and possibly solve, the crime. But she learns a lot more about than she bargains for about herself, human nature, and literal ghosts of terrible memories that just won’t die.

This is probably the best book. I’ve read all year. It kept.me guessing all the way through it. There were parts that spooked me while I was reading it, and its been a long time since that’s happened.
This book did start off slow, and I almost stopped reading it around the 32% mark, but then I got totally involved in the mystery and couldn’t put it down. I’m really glad I didn’t give up on this book.
