Denise Grollmus: Crime Fighter

Posted By on Tue, Oct 17, 2006 at 1:14 PM

She may be a wee little lass, but Denise Grollmus reports like a middle linebacker
Scene staff writer Denise Grollmus makes an appearance in the recently released Best American Crime Writing 2006. Her story, "Sex Thief" [September 14, 2005], the tale of an Akron man who invented the perfect crime by raping strippers, was chosen by editor Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down and Killing Pablo, for this year's installment of the HarperCollins anthology. The book also includes such notables as Jimmy Breslin and Jeffrey Toobin, and 14 sordid tales from publications like The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and The New York Times. Not bad for a 70-pound woman with Raggedy Ann tattoos, eh?
