I liked how this book had sections that were from the perspective of characters of this case, such as the mother of his first known victim, an almost victim, and different law enforcement officials.
Excellent true crime novel. I finished the last page, turned on the tv and there he was! An interview with Arthur Shawcross. He is one sick puppy! Gained some insite into "why" he is the kind of person he is near the end of the book. Will probably read again someday.
The man responsible for killing two children with his bare hands was Arthur J. Shawcross. After pleading guilty, he was put away for fourteen years until he obtained a release in April 1987. Not long afterward the worst serial killing spree in New York history began.
This is a great true crime book about Arthur Shawcross and his crimes.
The true story of Arthur Shawcross a serial killer who started off by murdering two children.He was moved to bigger city after being paroled and graduated into killing even more women.
Great True Crime.........Jack Olsen is a great writer and this book is just one example of his excellent work.
Was a very good read. Some repeated information, but easy to just skim over. A horrible account of how important it is to watch your neighbors, make some judgements and hold violent characters accountable for thier actions. No community should have to secretly horbor violent criminals, no matter how nice and good they have been behind walls.
