About the Author:

James Neff, one of the country's top investigative reporters, worked for the Cleveland Plain Dealer for ten years. He is the author of Mobbed Up: Jackie Presser's High-Wire Life in the Teamsters, the Mafia and the FBI, which was made into a highly rated HBO movie. A graduate of Notre Dame and the University of Texas at Austin, Mr. Neff is the Kiplinger Professor at the Ohio State University's School of Journalism.

From Publishers Weekly:

Between 1983 and 1988, Ronnie Shelton raped at least 30 women in the Cleveland area. Neff (Mobbed Up), a senior editor of Cleveland magazine, discovered, after Shelton's conviction, that he had committed rapes before 1983 and estimates the total number of his victims at nearly 100. In the course of his spree, Shelton was stopped or picked up by the police 15 times for offenses like peeping into windows, but the connection to the rapes was never made. In faulting the police, Neff's chief target is Lt. Lucie Duvall, head of the Sex Crimes Unit. Yet the book is less about the rapist or inept police work than about the phenomenon of 30 victims bonding together to support one another and to testify in court about their experiences. As an outcome of their action, the judge determined that Shelton should never be released and sentenced him to 3198 years in prison. For this vivid and memorable account, the author interviewed survivors, the police and Shelton himself.
