A True Story of the Hunt for One of America's First Serial Killers

Paperback - 2010
Rate this:
In more than a dozen cities, over four years, and across two continents, women were being dissected with a straight razor. Eyewitness reports claimed the perpetrator was a hulking, Bible-carrying brute who lumbered on all fours and laughed maniacally with each new slaughter. The tabloid press called him the Laughing Gorilla. When the gruesome slayings returned to where they began, the foggy docks and streets of San Francisco, Captain Charles Dullea questioned if the culprit was the same man as before. Dullea, the last honest cop in one of the most notoriously corrupt departments in the country, fought extortion, corruption, and even murder within his own department as he strived to catch the killer.
