Mark Gado con Nightcrawler: Eight women vanish… and no one knows why (English Edition)
He was on the football and wrestling teams in high school — a giant of a man, a US Army veteran and a college student who dreamed of the day when he would become a teacher. He also had a deep sexual compulsion to kill … again and again. He was a cold, ruthless murderer who preyed on the weak and deceived the police at almost every turn. When his most terrible secret was finally revealed, an entire city was left in shock and grief. How and why could such a thing happen?
