9780446515382: Angel of Darkness: The True Story of Randy Kraft and the Most Heinous Murder Spree

Randy Kraft was highly intelligent, politically active, loyal to his friends, committed to his work--and the killer of 67 people--more than any other serial killer known. This book offers a glimpse into the dark mind of a living monster. "To open this book is to open a peephole into hell".--Associated Press. Photographs.

Review:

Randy Kraft is believed to have committed more than 60 murders before he was apprehended by California troopers in 1983. He kept a meticulous scorecard and photos of his killings in his small brown Toyota. The young men died in agony--tortured with an automobile cigarette lighter, often impaled and sexually mutilated. Surprisingly, though, Kraft is not very famous. Perhaps that's because he killed only male hitchhikers and patrons of gay bars. Or perhaps it's because he never spoke about his crimes: he maintained the winsome smile and shy-guy pose that had served him well as a computer consultant in Orange County. Even his lover of many years, a gourmet candy maker who bought a house with Kraft, never suspected. Dennis McDougal (author of Mother's Day and In the Best of Families) tells the story effectively, combining extensive research and well-paced narrative with a wry, world-weary prose style that has just a touch of mordant humor.

About the Author:

Dennis McDougal is the author of eleven books, including "Dylan: The Biography", "The Last Mogul: Lew Wasserman, MCA, and the Hidden History of Hollywood", and the true-crime books "Angel of Darkness" and "Mother s Day". He is also a coauthor of "Blood Cold: Fame, Sex, and Murder in Hollywood". Formerly an investigative reporter for the "Los Angeles Times", McDougal began covering movies and media for the same newspaper in 1983 and, more recently, for the "New York Times". His journalism has won over fifty honors, including the National Headliners Award and the Peabody Award.

DOB: 03/09/1954
