Synopsis: Spokane's East Sprague Avenue is a long, cluttered and car-choked strip of flickering signs and boxy commercial buildings planted in cracked pavement where you can buy anything, including sex. The nastiest three-mile stretch of Sprague is call the Track. In the late 1990s it was a bountiful hunting ground for one of the nation's most vicious and prolific serial killers, Robert Lee Yates, Jr.

He shot 13 people to death. Or maybe 17, or maybe many more. Like Jack the Ripper and the Green River Killer, he preyed upon prostitutes. He returned to the Track again and again, luring desperate heroin- or crack-addicted women into his car. Some of the women who survived these encounters remember him as a "good trick" -- gentle and generous. But other women he used sexually, shot in the head and tossed like trash, though not always in that order.

For many years the killer hid behind his mask of the ordinary: husband, father of five, accomplished helicopter pilot and military man, middle-aged, middle-class, balding, polite. A homeowner in Spokane. He seemed so normal.

Then the mask began to slip. And the cops moved in. "Bad Trick: The Hunt for Spokane's Serial Killer" is the inside story of the flawed, frustrating pursuit of a man who has earned a place alongside Gacy and Dahmer, Bundy and Gein in our nation's pantheon of monsters.

About the Author: Bill Morlin has built a reputation as one of the nation's top reporters on right-wing extremist groups and related criminal justice issues. In his nearly 30 years at The Spokesman-Review and its former sister paper, The Spokane Chronicle, Morlin has written exclusive, award-winning stories on such major national news events as the siege on Ruby Ridge, the rise and fall of Richard Butler's Idaho-based Aryan Nations and the mid-1980s murder and robbery spree of The Order, a band of racist revolutionaries. In 2001, he helped identify the killer in a Montana double-murder case that had gone unsolved for 38 years. Morlin is a native of Spokane and a graduate of Eastern Washington University.

Jeanette White joined The Spokesman-Review in 1991 as a night cops and general assignment reporter. She has since written extensively on criminal justice, education and social issues. As a feature writer, she earned two major national awards in 2001 for reporting on family issues: first place in the American Association of Sunday and Feature Editors Excellence-in-Writing competition, and first place in the American Legion Auxiliary's Heart of America newspaper category. White is a native of Coulterville, Illinois, and a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. She previously reported for the Tampa Tribune.
