Family man. Decorated Gulf War veteran. Serial Killer. “A must read” from the Edgar Award–winning author of Broken Doll (True Crime Book Reviews).
On August 26, 1997, the decomposed bodies of two young women were discovered in Spokane, Washington. Within months, four more women were added to the mounting death toll. Authorities knew they were looking for a psychopath—but even they were shocked when they discovered who he was . . .
By day, Robert Lee Yates Jr., was a respected father of five, a skilled helicopter pilot who served in Desert Storm and the National Guard, and the recipient of nearly a dozen military service awards. No one suspected him of a deadly secret life. By night he prowled Spokane’s “Skid Row” for prostitutes, and gained their trust before betraying them with a bullet to the head.
From American hero to American psycho, award-winning journalist Burl Barer delves into the dark heart of one of the country’s most devious serial killers.
“Brilliant investigative journalism . . . A nonstop chilling thrill ride into the mind of an evil and savage killer.” —Dan Zupansky, author of Trophy Kill
