“I couldn’t put the book down…very scary indeed.” —Los Angeles Times The Classic Account Of One Of The World’s Most Feared Serial Killers Decades after Richard Ramirez left thirteen dead and paralyzed the city of Los Angeles, his name is still synonymous with fear, torture, and sadistic murder. Philip Carlo’s classic The Night Stalker, based on years of meticulous research and extensive interviews with Ramirez, revealed the killer and his horrifying crimes to be even more chilling than anyone could have imagined. From watching his cousin commit murder at age eleven to his nineteen death sentences to the juror who fell in love with him, the story of Ramirez is a bizarre and spellbinding descent into the very heart of human evil. Incredibly, after The Night Stalker was first published, thousands of women from all over the world contacted Carlo, begging to be put in touch with the killer. Carlo interviewed them and here presents their disturbing stories and the dark sexual desires that would drive them towards a brutal murderer. And in an exclusive death row interview, the killer himself gives his thoughts on the “Ramirez Groupies”—and what he thinks they really want. “An astonishing portrait of a killer not seen since In Cold Blood.” —New York Daily News “An exceptionally well-told true crime tale.” —Publishers Weekly16 Pages Of Shocking Photos

As the head of the Broward County Missing Persons Unit, Jack Carpenter was intimately involved in the Grimes case. Now, days away from execution, the notorious serial killer reaches out to ex-cop Carpenter with a surprising request. Abb Grimes’ grandson was lured from his home.

A large populated, academic high school with extremely aggressive kids, was targeted by a vengeful, hooded mask serial killer call the Nightstalker. The principal of the school attempts to deal with the aggressive and unethical behavior of students, including a white supremacist group, by delegating six gifted and athletic students who were just as aggressive to contend with the serious problems. The six super athletic females, who were seniors, vowed to clear the school aggressive and corrupt students. They uncovered a conspiracy by a white supremacist group to terminate the small number of African Americans students from the school at any cost. The sinister Nightstalker stalks and blows away victims of the school with a 44 magnum at a certain hour of the night. The killer only left gruesome bodies, but no other evidence or clues, making it very difficult for law enforcements to apprehend the perpetrator, which propelled the school and city into a terrifying panic. The police department was suffering from budget woes, and had only two detectives assign to the most gruesome murders ever to occur in the city; they were Linda Russo and Jackie Williams. Their work was cut out for them, investigating the serious situations at Lakewood High at times, and tracking the illusive Nightstalker at night. Linda Russo believes that the gruesome killings were somehow connected to the 1990 Nightstalker killings in her hometown in Michigan in which a relative was a victim.
