“This book is, quite simply, remarkable journalism, and remarkable writing.” –Robert B. Parker

An infamous murder spree. A monstrous hoax. The definitive book–updated with new evidence.

“DeSalvo Is the Strangler!” declared the headlines after handyman Albert DeSalvo confessed to eleven brutal rape/murders that terrorized Boston from 1962 to 1964. The repeat sex offender boasted he had raped an additional 2,000 women. His story became the subject of a bestselling book and major Hollywood movie. But DeSalvo was not The Boston Strangler.

Author Susan Kelly’s detailed investigation shows us the true DeSalvo–a pathological liar whose hunger for celebrity drove him to false confessions–and indicates that the stranglings were committed by more than one killer. In an eye-opening update that explores stunning DNA findings, a shocking re-autopsy, and expert profiling evidence, she shows why this savage, unsolved case continues to fascinate and haunt us.
