Read full description of the books:Fifteen-year-old Lynda Mann's savagely raped and strangled body is found along a shady footpath near the English village of Narborough. Though a massive 150-man dragnet is launched, the case remains unsolved. Three years later the killer strikes again, raping and strangling teenager Dawn Ashforth only a stone's throw from where Lynda was so brutally murdered. But it will take four years, a scientific breakthrough, the largest manhunt in British crime annals, and the blooding of more than four thousand men before the real killer is found."Wambaughs darkest nonfiction since "The Onion Field." . . . A meticulous and suspenseful reconstruction . . . . A powerful and elegant police procedural."-- "Kirkus Reviews."
"Like that cop that he was, Wambaugh brings his English colleagues to vivid life, and like the instinctive reporter that he is, he makes Narborough seem more like Brigadoon than contemporary Britain. For this one, both thumbs up."-- "New York Daily News"
