He was also a serial killer whose modus operandi was to gain the confidence of his wealthy employers before taking their jewels and then their lives.

In a chilling twist, Fontaine then threatened to kill Paul. In The Butler Did It, Paul Pender reveals the secrets of Roy Fontaine's double life and descripes his often terrifying, yet blackly humourous, encounters with a convicted serial killer. -- p.
