After the suicide of Veron Butts, a freeway killer who was housed in the Los Angeles County men s jail, the Los Angeles Mental Health Department was determined to keep the Los Angles Serial Killers alive. Vonda Pelto, a psychologist was selected for the task. Vonda s assignment was to meet with the serial killers daily and prevent them from harming themselves.
Without Remorse traces Vonda s surreal experience as she balanced a family life while spending her days with such notorious killers as Kenneth Bianchi (Hillside Strangler) and William Bonin (Freeway Killer) among others. During those years she developed personal relationships with these men and recorded her observations.

Review:

In unflinching language, Vonda Pelto escorts us into the claustrophobic bedlam of a giant jailhouse and lays bare the behavior of notorious serial killers. Pulling no punches, she allows us a voyeuristic look into their convoluted minds, and shares shocking personal experiences that will leave you reeling. --Don Lasseter Author, Journalist

Dr. Vonda Pelto s brutally honest book, Without Remorse, takes the reader on a forbidden tour behind the gates of the men s jail, a haunted house where Serial Killers live. But most powerful is the juxtaposition of Pelto s personal and professional life, with its conflicts between men and women, sex and violence, and intimidation and vulnerability. --Carole Lieberman M.D., M.P.H., Forensic Psychiatrist / Expert
