About the Author:

Lowell Cauffiel is an American true crime author, novelist, screenwriter and film and television producer. Cauffiel began his writing career as a contributor to music magazines, including Rolling Stone and Creem. He went on to become an award-winning reporter with the Detroit News and Detroit Monthly Magazine during the 1970s and 1980s. Cauffiel is the co-founder of Primary Purpose Productions, a non-profit production company that creates short films about addicts and alcoholics in recovery.

From Publishers Weekly:

Detroit psychologist Alan Canty maintained a second identity as "Dr. Al Miller," an alleged physician who was drawn to the Motor City's lower depths. He began an affair with 19-year-old prostitute Dawn Spens and got to know her ex-convict pimp, John Fry; both of them were heavy drug users. The analyst lavished great amounts of money on Spens, well over a hundred-thousand dollars, all but bankrupting himself; his wife, also a psychologist, had no inkling of his double life or of his burgeoning debts. Finally, when Dr. Miller tried to break off the relationship, the pimp killed him. Cauffiel, who covered the Fry murder trial in 1986 for Michigan magazine, does not attempt a psychological profile of Canty, but he suggests that a poor self-image may have been at the root of the duality.
