Abstract:

This volume recounts how a retired FBI agent helped to obtain a confession from Robert C. Browne, a man who claimed that he had committed nearly fifty murders during the 1980s and 1990s. This work traces the process during which the author and serial killer forged a psychologically disturbing relationship. The book begins by detailing the disappearance of Heather Dawn Church from her home in the suburbs of Colorado Springs. It details the efforts to attempt to find her and the person responsible for her abduction. From that point, it shifts to the lives of the three men who would ultimately come together to work as volunteers on cold cases and begins to look at the aftermath of the crime. Robert Browne, who plead guilty to her murder, sent an interesting letter to the DA after he had lost all courtroom battles. The letter suggested that there were more bodies to be found, and that Browne was the responsible party. The authors examine the way a crime is solved and the game of "cat and mouse" that is played by the hunted and the hunters. It offers an interesting look into the mind and psyche of a serial killer and at police work.
