Book Description GRANTA BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1991, four women disappeared from Vienna s red-light district, their bodies found later in the Vienna Woods. In the ensuing media frenzy, one reporter - the flamboyant writer and freelance journalist Jack Unterweger - distinguished himself for his hard-hitting interviews with the Chief of Police and Vienna s prostitutes. Despite months of investigation, the police failed to find a suspect. Then they considered a theory that at first seemed too far-fetched: the Vienna Woods Killer was Jack Unterweger himself. But was he really the killer? The dapper writer was not only a literary celebrity, but also Austria s greatest example of criminal rehabilitation.Sixteen years earlier he had murdered a girl, but in prison had discovered literature and been remarkably transformed. His children s stories were read on national radio, and his acclaimed novel Purgatory was made into a film. The Austrian establishment campaigned for his freedom, and in 1990 he was released amid a blaze of publicity. In search of proof, Austrian and American investigators traced Jack s movements in Europe and Southern California, where women had been murdered in a similar way. Meanwhile, the lead investigator looked for clues in the suspect s novels, plays, and diaries, as well as in the disturbing secrets of his mysterious past. With privileged access to Unterweger s diaries and the co-operation of those who knew him well, John Leake has written a penetrating book about history s only recorded example of a transatlantic serial killer - described by the FBI as a uniquely high-functioning psychopath .
