In their first non-fiction book, Professor of Psychology and Criminal Justice Mandy McNeely and Investigative Journalist and victim advocate Raven Rollins share an analysis of three of the coldest cases in Oklahoma from their investigations of them for their podcast, Sirens A Southern True Crime Podcast.
They take you to 2004 Maysville, Oklahoma, to look into the unsolved homicide of Sheila Deviney, who was burned alive in her own home.
They send you to 1995 Ada, Oklahoma, to dive into the case of Daniel Furr, a 15-year-old boy who ended up at the bottom of an abandoned brick quarry pit. Or did he?
Finally, they revisit 1994 Henryetta, Oklahoma, and the case of Shawna Jones, a single mother whose New Year's Eve celebration turned deadly.
Join them in their search for justice.

We wanted to represent all three of the victims on the cover without using their photos as we thought that may be exploitive. So we decided to go with flowers. As you can see, there are three flowers on the cover of the Pink Edition. The Pink/Red rose represents Shawna Jones as it was her favorite flower. The White rose represents Sheila Deviney, and the Daisey represents Daniel Furr, who wanted to paint daisies all over his bedroom walls with one having a smiley face in the middle. He never got a chance to do that, so his daisey is now on the cover of our book. On the Gold Edition cover, we have three gold roses to represent all three.
