Add to Wish List
For thirty–one years, an unremarkable family man
stalked, killed, and terroized the residents of Wichita,
Kansas. He was a devoted husband. A helpful Boy Scout dad. A
dependable church president. And behind it all, the
notorious BTK–a self–anointed acronym for "bind,
torture, kill"–serial killer.
Now that he's in
prison, the whole world knows that Dennis Rader is BTK. But
the intricate twists and shocking turns of this story have
never before been told by the people who were
there–and intimately acquainted with both the BTK
killer and Rader the family man. BTK: The Serial Killer Next
Door will take readers behind closed doors, revealing the
full and horrific tale as seen through the eyes of the
killer, his victims, the investigators, and the reporters
who covered it all.
BTK: The Serial Killer Next Door
is written by four award–winning crime reporters for
the Wichita Eagle who covered the story for over twenty
years, and with the full cooperation–for the first
time–of the Wichita Police Department's BTK Task
Force. During the decades–long investigation, the
police chief publicly declared that anyone giving
information to the press would not only lose his job but be
prosecuted; only now have members of the Task Force been
given permission to talk. With hours of exclusive interviews
with key Task Force members, including commander Kenny
Landwehr, in–depth interviews with the families of
victims, an interview with Jeff Rader, the notorious
killer's brother, and over thirty years' worth of original
reporters' notes, archival news stories, photos, documents,
and material previously suppressed at the request of the
police, BTK will lay bare the secret story behind the BTK
psychopath and the men who brought him down.
compelling writing, unparalled sources and access, and an
incredible subject, BTK: The Inside Story of the Serial
Killer Next Door is true crime writing at its very best.
