Behold the Monster

Behold the Monster

By Jillian Lauren



'Fearless and fierce ... transcends a crime story to be a story that threatens social order' - Michael Connelly 'Bewitching . . . a tale of horror that is also humane and self-aware' - Jennifer Egan 'Wildly original... true crime fans will find this a unique and disturbing thrill ride' - Publishers Weekly 'Blending gruesome forensic details with tender domestic moments . . . a panoramic tale of America's worst serial killer' - Daily Telegraph Jillian Lauren set out to research a serial killer for a novel. Instead, she put one at the centre of her life. Months of exchanging letters with Samuel Little in prison landed her a face-to-face meeting - and the trust of a monster. In the hours of harrowing interviews that followed, Little confessed to the murders of ninety-three women, making him America's most proli-fic serial killer. As the investigations escalated, the disturbing relationship took its toll on Lauren, both psychologically and legally - but she couldn't stop. Conversations with a psychopath, intertwined with intensely personal experience and the stories of those killed told for the -first time, result in an unforgettable true crime account. Behold the Monster is a journey into a mind and murderer that shocked the world, but one that ultimately lifts the lives of the victims with such grace that we cannot look away.
