Luggage By Kroger: A True Crime Memoir

Since publication as a paperback in December of 2008, Luggage By Kroger has won five national awards and garnered positive reviews on independent sites such as Reader Views, Midwest Book Review, POD People and True Crime Book Review.

It has been available on the Kindle since February of 2009 and ranks among the best sellers in several Kindle categories. Now, Luggage By Kroger is available in a multitude of e-pub formats through SmashWords and at the Sony Ebook Store. Here is a brief summary on the book:

Remember the movie "Fatal Attraction"? And the movie "Basic Instinct"? And the movie "Play Misty For Me"? Toss all three of the movies in a blender, hit frappe and stand back. What comes out would be Gary Taylor's new book--Luggage By Kroger--Author Randall Radic in Self-Publishing Review for February of 2009.

Luggage By Kroger has been recognized as one of 2009's top true crime thrillers with honors from five different national book competitions. The scorecard:

* True Crime Silver Medal from the 2009 IPPYs

* True Crime Bronze Medal and Finalist for Book-of-the-Year from the 2008 ForeWord Magazine Book-of-the-Year Awards

* True Crime Runner-Up in the 2009 National Indie Excellence Awards

* True Crime Finalist in the 2009 USA Book News Awards

* General Nonfiction Runner-Up at the 2009 New York Book Festival

In this true crime memoir, former Houston Post reporter Gary Taylor recounts his true-life fatal attraction involvement in the trail of violence that has dogged Texas attorney Catherine Mehaffey Shelton for nearly three decades, prompting coverage by newspapers, TV, movies and even Oprah Winfrey. Now Taylor invites readers to grab a seat on the wild ride of an obsessive relationship: erotic beginning to violent end and the trials required to clean up the mess. The result is an adventure odyssey of self-discovery through an encounter that nearly cost him his life.
