Summary
Enthralling. Gripping. Cinematic. Raw. A cold case murder investigation paced like a podcast, as visually stunning as a film, and as brave and personal as our darkest memoirs. J. Reuben Appelman cracks open one of America's most notorious murder sprees while simultaneously banging the gavel on his own history with violence. A deftly-crafted true crime story with grit, set amid the decaying sprawl of Detroit and its outliers.--
The Oakland County child killings: four children were abducted and murdered outside of Detroit during the winters of 1976 and 1977. The press was told the victims had been fed while in captivity, reportedly held with care; their bodies had been groomed post-mortem, scrubbed-free of evidence that might link to a killer before being dumped. Although the murders stopped, the killer was never caught. Appelman details his own investigation into buried leads, apparent police cover-ups of evidence, con-men, child pornography rings, and high-level corruption saturating Detroit's most notorious serial killer case. -- adapted from jacket
