The case that inspired "The Frozen Ground" starring Nicholas Cage and John Cusack .IMDb movie review___ "The Frozen Ground"As "true" stories go, the writers and directors did an excellent job ... However, you don't see the back story... On that note I strongly suggest reading Fair Game by Bernard DuClos whose research for his book was astonishingly rich and thorough.---IMDb dixie dragon (http://www.imdb.com/user/ur35449188/)*** This edition includes a 16-page "2013 Afterword" ***First published 9 years after Robert Hansen's sentencing, FAIR GAME exposed law enforcement and judicial bungling that allowed the 12-year murder spree of Alaska's most prolific serial killer. With an Anchorage police officer risking his career, and FBI profiling assistance, Alaska State Troopers finally brought Hansen to justice. _____Robert Hansen was never someone you'd call normal. A teenager bullied for having acne and a stutter, he became a loner with emotional problems. After prison time for arson in his native Iowa, and arrests for shoplifting in the Minnesota Twin Cities, he and his bride moved to Anchorage, Alaska. Becoming the father of two, a successful bakery owner, crack bush pilot and world-record holding big-game hunter, he seemed the solid "normal guy next door." But no one REALLY knew Robert Hansen ...or what he was capable of!_From 1971 to 1983, he went on a rampage. Usually stalking his prey in the seedier corners of Anchorage, he kidnapped and raped dozens of women, murdering at least twenty. FAIR GAME reconstructs Hansen's 12-year reign of violence, a victim's harrowing escape that led to his arrest and chilling confession, and reveals why the Hansen case didn't go to trial.__
