From the Author:

I have spent years covering the crimes of Nebraska Serial Child killer John Joubert--and have written what I believe to be the definitive book on his case.  In the spirit of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood  my book is written as a non-fiction novel, telling the story from all angles.

In a series of face-to-face interviews, Joubert explains to me in detail what drove his "need to kill."

This book is a must-read for those who follow true-crime history.

From the Inside Flap:

Back in his own world, John Joubert lay on the bed. Over and over again, he relived the crime.  Once more he saw the paperboy lying bound in the weeds, listened to his pleas for mercy, felt the knife cutting into the young flesh.

Over and over.

It had been perfect.  Everything had gone as planned.  He lay back on the bed pleasantly tired and listened to his heart hammering in his chest.  This morning, he had taken his fantasies a step further, and he found that he liked the feeling of power it gave him.

Now, drowsy and satisfied, the airman drifted off to sleep, his ears still ringing with the shouts:

"Please don't kill me.  Please."
