This book provides a detailed summary of the true crime book If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bonds of Sisterhood by Gregg Olson. Gregg Olson divides his book into parts, which divide the life of Shelly Knotek by the events that happened during different times in her life. At its core, If You Tell is the chilling true story of how three Knotek sisters, as well as their cousin-turned-brother Shane, dealt and lived with the abusive Shelly, and Dave, the passive husband who carried out his wife's commands. Throughout their young lives, the sisters and Shane faced severe physical, mental, and emotional abuse at the hands of their mother. After the abuse took place, Shelly would become a loving mother, and claim that she was helping her children. A tactic of Shelly's was to act like a loving, caring mother so that her children would put up with the abuse in order to "earn" some happy moments with Shelly. If You Tell is the retelling of grotesque events, and also delves into Shelly's childhood, showing that Shelly was always an abusive, vile person, without any remorse or responsibility for her actions. Finally, If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood shows how Shelly Knotek faced justice for the crimes she committed. In a happy ending, Olsen shows how the abuse they faced throughout their lives brought the sisters closer and strengthened their bond. Gregg Olson recounts the events in detail, never shying away from the bad or grotesque actions of Shelly Knotek. That is what makes it all the more satisfying when Shelly finally has to face justice at the end. The reader is left with a sense of justice, and with empathy for the sisters.

A poignant new collection with visionary clarity from a National Book Award finalist If You Can Tell, the new book of poems by James McMichael, a finalist for the National Book Award in 2006, takes up what it might mean that the word was in the beginning, before which there may not have been “empty / space, / even, / nor the thought of it.” A baby is conceived after a verbal exchange between his parents. He’s born and learns to talk. Told that the grandfather he cherishes has died, he unknowingly silences any memory of the man. To his Sunday school class a few years later, he tells the lie that he himself was born in China. The boy grows up into a vexing faith. Though he expects his own death will be final, God is no less God to him in the life he's been given and must in time give back.

In If I Can't Have You, bestselling author Gregg Olsen and co-author Rebecca Morris investigate one of the 21st Century's most puzzling disappearances and how it resulted in the murder of two children by their father. Every once in a great while a genuine murder mystery unfolds before the eyes of the American public. The tragic story of Susan Powell and her murdered boys, Charlie and Braden, is the only case that rivals the Jon Benet Ramsey saga in the annals of true crime. When the pretty, blonde Utah mother went missing in December of 2009 the media was swept up in the story – with lenses and microphones trained on Susan's husband, Josh. He said he had no idea what happened to his young wife, and that he and the boys had been camping in the middle of a snowstorm. Over the next three years bombshell by bombshell, the story would reveal more shocking secrets. Josh's father, Steve, who was sexually obsessed with Susan, would ultimately be convicted of unspeakable perversion. Josh's brother, Michael, would commit suicide. And in the most stunning event of them all, Josh Powell would murder his two little boys and kill himself with brutality beyond belief.
