The author was a reporter in Poughkeepsie, New York when a young man was finally apprehended for the murders of eight prostitutes in the area. Kendall Francois stashed the bodies in the attic of his parents home. In circumstances reminiscent of The Silence of the Lambs, Ms. Rowe attempted to pry details of his life and crimes out of the unrepentant killer. He agreed only if she would divulge personal facets of her own life. A chilling -- and oddly moving -- journey into obsession and madness. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
