In 1963, suburban Belmont, Massachusetts, is rocked by a sex murder that fits the Boston Strangler's pattern. The police track down a black man, Roy Smith, who cleaned the victim's house. Smith is hastily convicted, but the terror of the Strangler continues. But on the day of the Belmont murder, Albert DeSalvo-the man who eventually confessed to the Strangler's crimes-is also in town, working as a carpenter at the Jungers' home. In this powerful narrative, Sebastian Junger chronicles one of America's first and most controversial serial murder cases.
