About the Author

Robert Scott discovered that true-crime writing is incredibly interesting, as "You have to be part journalist, part detective and part analytical writer for the true crime market." Robert's books have detailed the lives of killers and victims, police detectives and FBI agents—from California to Iowa, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. They've depicted stories from a murderous male/female team in the High Sierras to a psychopathic killer on the mean streets of Los Angeles. They've also told the stories of victims, from an exotic dancer, to a beautiful but naive college girl, to a loving and vulnerable ranch wife. "The lives of the victims, and the detectives who brought them justice, are vitally important in these stories," Robert said. "I absolutely believe in a comment related to me by an Assistant United States Attorney, 'To the living we owe respect, to the dead we owe the truth.'"

Robert is currently working on true crime books set in Oregon and Northern California. Robert has been on many television shows on Discovery ID, A&E, E!, and Tru TV.

Ok I really love true crime books because they keep me interested. Rope burns is everywere. The author goes way off the subject several times and it is hard not skipping pages. Good luck to the next person whom reads this.

From the moment you start reading, you get chills all over your body. Of all the True Crime books I have read, this one is the most chilling yet. I normally takes me about one day to read a 300 page book (but I had to take a lot of breaks inbetween because of the violence) and it took me 3 days to finish it. It even made me have nightmares! But I had to finish it. Read at your own risk!!!! Don't get me wrong, although somewhat disturbing this is an amazing book!! You just have to realize there are people like this out there, and if there weren't then these books wouldn't have been written.
