I wish she would have written this one later in her career as the book would have been even more detailed. Nonetheless, it is a story that can make the hair on your neck prickle from the absolute evil in some people.
I love true stories this one did not disappoint me .....a true crime story based in Anchorage Alaska..a crime that began in Washington state that began in the summer of 1957....about one of the most savage sex killers of our time...
I love a good Ann Rule book. Greeat account of what happened to these women. Very sad, but at least justice was served. Although I am sure not enough for the families. I wanted to reach in the book and hurt this sick man. For some reason I was drawn in this book for the plight of the women.
A book about a man who contacted possible victims through a want ad for help at his gas station. This enabled him to lure victims to him.
As always, Ann Rule has done a great job in making the true story very interesting.
This is a decent book from Ann Rule. Nothing like any of her current work, as this book was originally written in 1983 and her work has improved by leaps and bounds since then.
However, don't let this stop you from reading the book, it's a chilling story of a man with no conscious, no concern and a lust for terrorizing young girls. It will truly make you look at "want ads" a little differently.
After his first grisly crime, Harvey Louis Carignan beat a death sentence and continued to manipulate, rape, and bludgeon women to death--using want ads to lure his young female victims.
And time after time, justice was thwarted by a killer whose twisted legal genius was matched only by his sick savagery.
Here, complete with the testimony of women who suffered his unspeakable sexual abuses and barely escaped with their lives, and of the police who at last put him behind bars, is one of the most shattering and thought-provoking true-crime stories of our time.
