‘Nobody’s Women,’ a true crime thriller by Texas Watchdog’s Steve Miller, tells the story of the Cleveland Strangler and his victims

prison bars

You know Steve Miller for his dogged reporting on government here at Texas Watchdog. His work has revealed shenanigans in state and local government, officials’ conflicts of interest, and a first-hand account from a paid vote harvester.

Miller is also a well-regarded author of true crime. His latest book will be featured on Cleveland radio and TV shows next week.

Nobody's Women: The Crimes and Victims of Anthony Sowell, the Cleveland Serial Killer,” is described in this way on Amazon:

On a Thursday evening in late October 2009, Cleveland Police detectives arrived at the home of Anthony Sowell—an ex-Marine and a registered sex offender—to arrest him on week-old rape charges.

But this was no ordinary house, nor would it be a routine arrest.

For even though Sowell was not at home, officers knew immediately something was horribly wrong. After initially finding two rotting corpses inside the home, their investigation would lead them to discover the bodies of eleven women.

This is the shocking true account of Sowell’s legacy of depravity and cold-blooded murder. His mannered and well-spoken veneer masked a monster who felt no mercy for those he butchered. His twisted existence spent among the decaying bodies of his victims. And how he picked his victims from the fringes of society—lost souls with criminal records or drug habits that would make them less likely to arouse alarm if they simply disappeared.

But that didn’t mean they wouldn’t be avenged…

So if you happen to be in Cleveland next week, tune in (show times below).
