About the Author

Hi, I'm Gunnar Grey. I write books. I'm a historian, political junkie, target shooter, and retired adventurer and equestrian. I read avidly and post reviews or at least ratings for most of the books I read. Occasionally my poor husband surfaces from beneath a pile of paperbacks, gasping for air... but I shouldn't bore you with personal issues.
 
I live in Humble, Texas, just north of Houston, with four parakeets, the aforementioned husband (who's even more entertaining than the birds), an orange betta fish with no manners, a fig tree, the lawn from the bad place, three armloads of potted plants, and a coffee maker that's likely the most important item we own.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this straightforward, factual account of murder! January 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a HUGE true crime story fanatic, and while this is just a short, strictly factual account without the hype and pizzazz of books by Anne Rule, Joe McGinniss, or M. William Phelps, to name a few, it delivers the chilling account of love gone wrong for Helen Potts and Anna Sutherland. *SPOILER ALERT* Grey sets the scene for how Carlyle Harris used marriage as a way to become intimate with Helen Potts and how when his web of lies came crashing down around him, instead of wishing he were dead, he wished Helen were, and made it happen. Then in an apparent copycat murder, Robert Buchanan's greed for Anna Sutherland's money led him to try and use the same method of murder, but without making the same mistake Harris did. The callous, heartless manner in which these men treated the women they were supposed to love sent chills up and down my spine. *END SPOILER ALERT*

As soon as I finished this short, I started on J. Gunnar Grey's Trophies and I plan to follow that up with Deal with the Devil! I love this author's voice and am quickly becoming a fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Chilling Murder Cases February 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually try to read everything I can get my hands on by this author, as her writing is fascinating and intriguing. These two tales of what forensic science was capable of over 100 years ago is amazing. Of course, it probably shouldn't be that surprising, though, considering the prowess of Sherlock Holmes, who only knew what Arthur Conan Doyle did at that period in time.

I found this short read well worth the time, as it was both educational and entertaining, which is true of everything I've read by Ms. Grey so far. Her attention to detail, and accuracy of historical facts puts her in the same league with all the great classical literary artists. Even though this book is written in a "just the facts" style, the way those facts are presented make for a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Study August 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unwanted wives was a very interesting study of crimes committed long ago. It could have been a little longer in length--but overall fascinating! It was especially interesting to me because some of the action took place in the Pacific Northwest and the women were not the types you think you will find in an era that long ago.
