William Bratton is taking over the helm of the NYPD, what should be his top priority?
Jack and Mary Branson have collaborated on "Delayed Justice," which takes readers inside the minds of several of the most dogged cold-case investigators, who worked with active officers to solve cases in the book including the homicides of a 29-year-old Atlanta teacher in 1988 and 42-year-old Kentucky man found in a wooded lot.
Tapping into his experience as an investigator with the Chula Vista Police Department for 17 years, Tom Basinski wrote the true-crime novels "Cross-Country Evil" and "No Good Deed" based on detailed case material from local cases. In "Cross-Country Evil," Basinski chronicled the 18-year investigation that resulted in a conviction of a serial rapist (he interviewed from prison) who murdered a college student working as a prostitute. Listen to his account of the case.
