Behind a façade of Midwestern normalcy, Dennis Rader hid a life of bloodlust, sadism, and murder beyond imagining.
The upstanding family man, Scout leader, and church board president was well liked and trusted by his Wichita community.
Kansans -- and all of America -- would never recover from the truth: He was BTK, the madman who bound, tortured, and killed ten victims over the course of three decades.
Drawing on extensive interviews, including exclusive access to Rader's pastor and congregation, bestselling author Stephen Singular chronicles the horrific crimes, the investigation, the capture, and confession of BTK -- and, more deeply than any other account, reveals how his 2005 arrest shattered and challenged those in a circle of faith who thought they knew him best.
"Gripping and chilling."
-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Macabre, riveting, scary."
"Just as the public was riveted to the BTK case as it unfolded on national TV, they will also be gripped by Singular's skillfully crafted story."
-- "Rocky Mountain News" (Denver)
"Powerful, scary reading. Packed with lurid, behind-the-murder tidbits."
-- "Entertainment Weekly"
