The Life and Crimes of the BTK Serial KillerBook - 2006
A thorough examination of Dennis Rader, the infamous BTK killer, who terrorized Wichita, Kansas, for decades. By making use of Rader's extensive confessions, as well as the recollections of his pastor and one of the primary detectives, the author recreates, in macabre detail, the killing spree that claimed 10 lives. Rader's sadism is hard to stomach, especially his modus operandi of murdering people in front of their relatives. The pastor's take on the crimes--that his parishioner (who was president of the congregation) was demonically possessed--may offend some, but Singular puts this theory in context by taking pains to present the theological struggle Rader's crimes presented.
