More About This Title Double Lives


#1 Amazon New Release! ─ Terrifying true crime stories

True Crime is hot right now, with true crime books, TV shows, and podcasts topping lists of readers, viewers, and listeners across the country. Eric Brach's new book Double Lives: True Tales of the Criminals Next Door offers terrifying true stories about the criminals hidden among us and the banality of evil and crime, elevated by its frank discussion of the nation-wide criminal scourge of the moment: opioid addiction.

Double Lives chronicles the very monsters who walk unnoticed among us ─ even serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, or John Wayne Gacy. They are neighbors and students, professionals and friends living out criminal double lives. Double Lives is both a nonfiction exposé and a nationwide search that details the exploits of some of the worst criminals in recent American history, all of whom succeeded in going undetected for years while perpetrating one crime after another… and all in their own hometowns. Gender? Race? Age? Socioeconomic class? It doesn’t matter. All stripes of people from all walks of life are profiled in this true crime roller-coaster.

At the same time, the author provides a personal look at opioid addiction and its current effects right alongside these binge-worthy tales of two-faced criminals caught and incarcerated, making Double Lives a sensational yet sobering read.

If you're a fan of true crime and serial killer books such as Pretty Little Killers, Mind Hunter, or The Big Book of Serial Killers you'll love Double Lives.


Eric wakeboards out of flaming wreckage—or at least, his author photo on Goodreads does. The rest of the time, he teaches English at a collegiate program for students pursuing careers in law enforcement.

Before turning to books, Eric wrote for The Onion and Bleacher Report, and he penned the screenplay for a Nintendo Wii game that most people didn't even hate. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, his dog, and his unyielding certainty that eggs overeasy is the best food on earth.


Eric Brach is a lecturer in the Police Orientation Preparation Program at West Los Angeles College. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Writers Blok, a non-profit organization that provides support to writers and their work

"In researching Double Lives: True Tales of the Criminals Next Door, Eric Brach was meticulous in his devotion to expose the sociopathic character of his subjects."
Michael F Matassa, ATF Special Agent (retired)

"What makes Double Lives so terrifying is that these events are real. After 20 years as a cop, these are the stories that keep me up at night." -- Sgt. Joseph Kuns, LAPD
