Overview

New York Times bestselling author, television personality, and podcast host M. William Phelps takes readers deep into the murder of Mary Yoder, a popular wife, mother, and healer in Upstate New York -- telling a gripping tale of a family drama, a determined investigation, and a killer with the face of an angel. In July 2015, Mary Yoder fell ill in the chiropractic centre she operated with her husband, Bill. Doctors in the ER and ICU were baffled-and unable to save her life. Weeks later, her family received startling news from the medical examiner- Mary had been deliberately poisoned. Another shock followed when the local sheriff received a claim that Adam Yoder had poisoned his mother. But Adam was not the only person of interest . . . Kaitlyn Conley, Adam's ex-girlfriend, worked at the Yoders' clinic and was at Mary's bedside during her last hours. Still, some spoke of her history of rage-fuelled behaviour. Had Kaitlyn and Adam conspired to kill Mary? Yet another suspect emerged when accusations were hurled at grieving husband Bill Yoder. . . M. William Phelps unravels a twisting trail of evidence to reveal the heartless scheme that tore a family apart, divided a community, and culminated in two gripping, high-profile trials.

Reviews

Praise for M. William Phelps Phelps knows how to work it, mainly by fleshing out...character with prurient details...and examples of...maddening game-playing. -The New York Times Book Review on Where Monsters Hide Phelps depicts Conley as a narcissist who feared losing control of Adam, and the book stridently calls out social media efforts to overturn her conviction of manslaughter. The author's anger at Conley's glamorization within the true crime community is palpable. -Library Journal on We Thought We Knew You Phelps does a good job exposing the way reality TV coverage can influence and indeed corrupt perceptions of guilt and innocence. True crime and popular culture fans will be fascinated. -Publishers Weekly on We Thought We Knew You Sometimes truth really is stranger, and scarier, than fiction, as demonstrated by investigative reporter M. William Phelps' Where Monsters Hide...This is narrative nonfiction of the highest order, a sumptuously scintillating tale that greets us with the character types we're used to seeing in the fiction of Lisa Gardner, Harlan Coben or Lisa Scottoline. Superb in all respects. -The Providence Journal on Where Monsters Hide A chilling, real-life tale of murder and madness. -BookTrib on Where Monsters Hode Phelps is an expert in the world of true crime and the mind of a serial killer. -Library Journal Phelps is a true-crime veteran. -New York Post Phelps is one of America's finest true-crime authors. -Vincent Bugliosi M. William Phelps [is a] master of true crime. -Real Crime Magazine M. William Phelps dares to tread where few others will: into the mind of a killer. -TV Rage Phelps is the king of true crime. -Lynda Hirsch, Creators Syndicate columnist Phelps treads dangerous ground like an Amazon jungle guide-fearless, compassionate, insightful. -Geoff Fitzpatrick, Executive Producer of Dark Minds
