Overview

"A solid, absorbing true-crime book that depicts the depths of a remorseless mind." Clark Howard, author of City Blood.

This true crime book follows the FBI's search for and capture of Darren Dee O'Neall, a serial killer whose ability to change his appearance kept him out of the reach of the authorities, and describes his violent sexual crimes.

Deadly Hunk--For women with a yen for macho men, Darren Dee O'Neall seemed the kind of guy romantic dreams were made of. Strong, handsome, smooth talking, with an array of tattoos adding to his masculine aura, he came on as a rugged outdoorsman looking for a mate. But in reality, O'Neall was a nightmare of savage, sexually violent crimes that put him on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

Here is the bone-chilling true crime story of the twisted killer whose masterful ability to change appearances confounded authorities again and again...and a mother's agonizing search for her missing daughter. It is the story, too, of the brilliant police work and startling psychic detection that teamed with a family's outrage to bring him to justice. But it was too late for the young woman whose dream of a hunk "to die for" became a chilling reality!

Notice to readers: This book was previously published as Blind Rage.

    To Die For: Another great true crime novel by the master, Gary C. King

    You know what's scary about True Crime stories? They're true. Gary C. King is a master storyteller in the True Crime genre and his novel, "To Die For" is certainly no exception.

    As always, King puts the reader directly into the heart of the action of the novel that explores the deplorable acts of sociopathic killer, Darren Dee O'Neall, as he slithers through the Pacific Northwest raping, maiming and killing. King's third person narrative places the reader in a verbal vista where the acts and thoughts of the victims, police and O'Neall himself are seemingly right before their eyes and in their heads, which is not always a lovely, but always a thrilling, place to be.

    True Crime writing would be as flat as a two-day soda left on a counter-top without great dialogue and King excels at keeping it fast and real, two components that make it superb and natural. Also, King's sense of structure and tempo keep his work riveting and difficult to put down to read another day.

    To immerse yourself in a world where violence reigns and morality seems to have left town, where victims suffer hideously and defenders of the law work every angle to bring down a cold-blooded, animalistic killer, you cannot do better than "To Die For".

    This is a must read. I knew Darren as a teenager in Germany. I am glad to see it available for the Nook. I was shocked when I found out what he had done. You would have never known it at the time. But looking back, I now see things that should have been picked up on. It is heart breaking for his victims, their families and his family. I knew them all very well. Will post more as I read.
