Overview

Without Redemption was written on a number of parallel tracks that constantly intersect: First, it is the most detailed historical biography ever written about Bill Bonin, the notrorious Freeway Killer responsible for murdering 22 teenage boys over ten-months in 1979-80.

Second, it is a comprehensive psychologial roadmap which charts the evolution of Bonin's personality from abused child to sexual predator to serial killer. This is accomplished using documents from his childhood, war serrvice, multiple California government mental health and penal institutions, witness testimony and the expertise of Clinical Psychologist Vonda Pelto, Ph.D., who had many sessions with Bonin and two of his accopmplices while working in Los Angeles Men's Central Jail.

Third, it is a narrative which, using a trove of lond hidden documents, reveals the inner workings of Bonin's mind, showing how he throught, felt, planned and viewed the world. The narrative displays Bonin, an abused high school dropout, cleverly manipulating lawyers, judges, psychiatrists, social workers, friends, family, probation officers, government bureaucrats, detectives, journalists and, most tragically, the innocent victims of his rage.

Fourth, Without Redemption reveals the complex and interconnected stories of waht took palce after Bonin's final arrest, when so much was in flux and so many moving parts were swirling about. Archieved investigative documents, collected from a variety of sources, brings to light a number of surprising, shocking, sad and even funny events from those tumultuous ten-months from June 1980 to March 1981.

Finally, it is a book which solves two murder mysteries and unlocks how one day of crossroads and coincidences, in the misdst of the murder spress, profoundly impacted many lives and future events.
