This is another new to me True Crime author. This is also just one of those books I picked up at the library. Stephen Stanko was an ex-con and a published author. He used his status as a published author to impress people and glossed over why he went to prison. He had people convinced he was a nice guy. They are all nice guys until you find the bodies in the crawl space – sorry – wrong book.
He kept a scrapbook of serial killers, later it became apparent he was using it for ideas on how to become one himself. He was adept at using people, and once they no longer served his purpose, he disposed of them.
This book details his crimes after he was released from prison, not too much detail on his life before that and the man hunt after he assaulted his girlfriend and her daughter.
This is well-researched and written true crime account. It has detailed information but not so many details that it gets bogged down in the details.
