An infamous murder spree. A monstrous hoax. “This book is, quite simply, remarkable journalism, and remarkable writing” (Robert B. Parker).
 
“DeSalvo Is the Strangler!” declared the headlines after handyman Albert DeSalvo confessed to eleven brutal rape-murders that terrorized Boston from 1962 to 1964. The repeat sex offender boasted he had raped an additional two thousand women. His depraved story became the subject of a bestselling book and major Hollywood movie. But, it turns out, DeSalvo was not the Boston Strangler.
 
This detailed investigation exposes the true DeSalvo as a pathological liar, burglar, and rapist whose hunger for celebrity drove him to false confessions. The Boston Strangler reveals that the stranglings were actually committed by at least eight—possibly eleven—different killers. In all likelihood, DeSalvo was not among them. In an eye-opening update that explores stunning DNA findings, a shocking re-autopsy, and expert profiling evidence, journalist Susan Kelly uncovers the facts behind a savage, unsolved case that continues to haunt and fascinate.
 
“Raises disturbing questions about one of our nation’s most notorious crime sprees.” —Gail Zimmerman, producer of 48 Hours
 
“Taut with suspense . . . Crackles like a bestselling novel.” —Barry Reed, author of The Verdict
