Publisher's Summary

The author of the true crime classic Lobster Boy now turns his investigative skills to the chilling true story of Kendall Francois, one of the most bizarre serial sex-killers of modern times.
In October, 1996, young, pretty, and petite women began vanishing off the streets of Poughkeepsie, New York. Most were prostitutes and some were addicts. By August, 1998, the toll had reached eight, when a prostitute told police she had barely escaped being strangled by Kendall Francois, 27, a 6'4", 300-lb. middle school hall monitor whose slovenly personal hygiene had earned him the nickname "Stinky". Inside his house, the smell was worse, as investigators discovered a tangle of rotting flesh and bones - eight female corpses, almost all decomposed. Francois was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Thorough!

Loved it! I'm a Poughkeepsie local and I thought it was pretty well spot on and extremely interesting. Great narration! Just a few mistakes in ponounces names of locales.

Great true crime novel

This book is unforgettable. Great detail into the mind of a monster. His capture and trial were also well documented.
