Diary of the D.C. Sniper by Lee Boyd Malvo
The original diary of Lee Boyd Malvo which was written two years after he was incarcerated, fully explains the stressors and traumatic events that led Lee down the road which would eventually lead to committing multiple homicides in the Beltway Area of Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Through written and telephonic communication along with a personal visit taking place over many years, criminal profiler and co-author Anthony Meoli was able to obtain the original diary from Lee Malvo. This once very private diary was transcribed verbatim. The only changes that were made involved changing names to protect their privacy. These changes were worked out over various telephone calls.
The diary allows for readers, for the first time, to understand how and why the D.C. Sniper shootings happened in 2002. With so many shootings in the United States, this book is one of the few to explore the warning signs in such detail from the shooter himself.
One you pick it up, you will not put it down.
