"This kind of frightening and fascinating glimpse into a killer's mind is rare, and an extremely intuitive Rother makes the most of it.”
-- Ron Franscell, NYT bestselling author
"Rother has produced a superior study of a serial killer and his lost and lonely victims."
-- Author Carol Anne Davis
A psychological look at the life of long-haul trucker Wayne Adam Ford, who was convicted of murdering four troubled young women during rough sex, dismembering two of them, and then turning himself in so he wouldn't kill again. Still claiming the women’s deaths were accidental -- and that their strangulation was erotic asphyxiation, for their pleasure -- he is on death row at San Quentin prison in California. See below for the original cover of the book, first released in 2009, and Ford crying at his sentencing hearing.
Wayne and his brother Rodney as boys. Adult Rodney. Room Zero, where they both stayed the night before turning Wayne in. Wayne in the U.S. Marines. Wayne after a severe head injury that put him in the ICU for 9 days. Wayne being booked.
"A must read. . . well-written, extremely intense; a book that I could not put down.”
