From the Back Cover:

New York Times bestseller
 
 
FOR TEN YEARS, HE TERRORIZED THEM WITHOUT MERCY...
 
Ken McElroy robbed, raped, burned, shot, and maimed the citizens of Skidmore, Missouri, without conscience or remorse. Again and again, the law had failed to stop him.
 
UNTIL THEY TOOK JUSTICE INTO THEIR OWN HANDS.
On July 10, 1981, Ken was shot to death on the main street of this small farming community. Forty-five people watched. No indictments were ever issued, no trial held...and the town of Skidmore protected the killers with silence. With this powerful, true-life account, Edgar Award-winning author Harry N. MacLean reveals what drove a community of everyday American citizens to commit murder...
