Abstract:

A serial killer hunting young girls ... The horribly mutilated condition of young Terri Maness's naked body held the first clue. One smart Wichita detective suspected the legal secretary's murder might be the first in a string of depraved sexual slayings. He would be right on the mark. A spree of torture and murder ... Six days later Michelle Katf was badly beaten and barely escaped with her life. Twenty-year old Joan Butler was not so lucky. She soon disappeared without a trace. But when Richard Grissom, a handsome onetime college student, started driving the dead girl's red Corsica, the cops were hot on his trail. By then the twisted thrill killer, now a desperate fugitive, was already looking foe fresh victims. Nothing could satisfy his lust for death ... Attractive roommates, Theresa Brown and Christine Rusch were only too happy to have a handsome guy like Grissom at their Saturday night party. They never suspected that 48 hours later they would be trapped in a horrifying nightmare. For days, Grissom terrorized them, before finally snuffing out their young lives, and sending police on one of the most exhaustive manhunts in Kansas history. Former FBI agent Dan Mitrione follows the dark, twisted path of a man with all the cunning, sexy good looks, sexy good looks and deadly charm of Ted Bundy, exposing Grissom's secret bloody past that shocked even the most jaded detectives.
