More About The Boston Stranglers by Susan Kelly
 
 
 
Overview
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.
