Both those books sound like good reads. Thanks, Lisa!


Lisa, if you are interested in reading how bizarre Phil Spector is, go to the Los Angeles County Superior court web site:


and click on news & media and then high profile cases. The court docs are there. He is a true nutcase.


Thanks for the tip on the Spector book! Big fan of the Ronettes and Crazy Phil's production techniques. His stuff with the Righteous Brothers makes my head spin. Of course, The Beatles hated his production on Let It Be so much they re-released it without all the bells and whistles and called it Let It Be--Nake. Oh--it's also worth noting he produced the Ramones "End of the Century" album. Dee Dee Ramone always told the story about how Phil pulled a gun on the band in the studio. Classic rock-n-roll story! Yea, Lisa--how cool is it that Ronnie Spector got busy with John Lennon! Didn't George also make out with one of the Ronettes? Nedra Talley? I don't know--seem to recall reading that in one of the thousands of Beatle books I've read!


Lisa, you are wonderful. Thank you so much for the Ronnie book and for the babble on! I'm reading the Black Dahlia Files now, but Ronnie is neggst on my list. Thanks so much. x

Hello Lisa, My daughter, Sandra Louise Belmore was the victim of Allen Leroy Gray in 1993 in Iron Mountain, Michigan. It has been 14 years now and every April she has her bad memories and days. She's tough and a survivor, but still has and probably always will have those bad memories and demons to deal with. If you could do me a favor, I'd surely appreciate it. I don't know how to do it on the computer. I would like to find out if Allen Leroy Gray is going to be up for parole at any time during his life sentence. Because if he is, I definitely want to be at that hearing. Please let me know if you can find this out for me. Thank you so much for writing this article about that monster which is exactly what he is. I only hope he'll never get out of prison. Again, thank you. Very sincerly yours, Nancy Albright

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
