The true story of serial killer William Lee Neal, who claimed to be better than Ted Bundy, from the New York Times–bestselling author of Monster. “Welcome to my mortuary!” were the chilling words announced by William Lee “Cody” Neal to Angela Fite on July 5, 1998, after luring the pretty twenty-eight-year-old to the Denver, Colorado, townhouse he’d turned into a den of torture and slaughter. With twisted pleasure, he showed her two dead female bodies on the floor and a third, live one—naked, gagged, and bound, spread-eagle on a mattress. Neal, who called himself “Wild Bill Cody,” was seductive and skilled at separating love-struck women from their money, and ultimately, their lives. Forty-three-year-old divorcée Rebecca Holberton let Neal move into her townhouse and “loaned” him $70,000. On June 30, 1998, he repaid her by crushing her skull with an ax and wrapping her in plastic. On Friday, July 3, he brought another girlfriend, Candace Walters, to the home, clubbing her to death and desecrating her body. On Sunday, yet another acquaintance, Suzanne Scott, watched helplessly as Angela Fite was murdered by Neal, who then sodomized and raped his bound captive. Apprehended by police, Neal, who proclaimed himself better than Ted Bundy, insisted on representing himself at the trial. Though the evidence against him was overwhelming, it was the testimony of Suzanne, who had survived Neal’s unspeakable torture, that finally put this monster on Colorado’s death row.

Love Strong as Death
Author: J.I. Little
Publisher: Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press
A transcription of Lucy Peel’s wonderfully readable journal was recently discovered in her descendent’s house in Norwich, England. Sent in regular installments to her transatlantic relatives, the journal presents an intimate narrative of Lucy’s Canadian sojourn with her husband, Edmund Peel, an officer on leave from the British navy. Her daily entries begin with their departure as a young, newlywed couple from the shores of England in 1833 and end with their decision to return to the comforts of home after three and a half years of hard work as pioneer settlers. Lucy Peel’s evocative diary focuses on the semi-public world of family and community in Lower Canada’s Eastern Townships, and fulfils the same role as Susanna Moodie’s writings had for the Upper Canadian frontier. Though their perspective was from a small, privileged sector of society, these genteel women writers were sharp observers of their social and natural surroundings, and they provide valuable insights into the ideology and behaviour of the social class that dominated the Canadian colonies during the pre-Rebellion era. Women’s voices are rarely heard in the official records that comprise much of the historical archives. Lucy Peel’s intensely romantic journal reveals how crucially important domesticity was to the local British officials. Lucy Peel’s diary, like those of such counterparts as Catherine Parr Traill, also suggests that genteel women were better prepared for their role in the New World than Canadian historians have generally assumed.
It may seem as if the concept of faith has become a line in the sand: you either have it or you don’t; that you are either certain or you are lost. But as author Kyle Cupp has learned, we can have an uncertain faith while still being confident in and committed to our belief in God. He shares the pressing questions and winding path to understanding in Living by Faith, Dwelling in Doubt. Pushed off a spiritual precipice after the death of his daughter only a few shorts hours after her birth, Cupp shares his ongoing spiritual journey—from the certainty of truth during his college years, through the shaken faith that can come with lived experience, to the burgeoning confidence that it takes to live somewhere in between. Cupp reconciles his doubts about faith and religion and reaches a place where he is confident that faith and uncertainty can exist side by side. It is the belief in the mystery that is faith and the awesome power of boundless love that makes the winding path of faith passable.
