The only definitive book on this sensational crime, now newly updated, "The Boston Stranglers" investigates Albert DeSalvo's confession to the eleven brutal murders he didn't commit and exposes the real killers. The headlines screamed "DeSalvo is the strangler!" when repeat sex offender Albert DeSalvo confessed to the brutal murders of eleven different women. Beginning in June, 1962, the Boston, Massachusetts area was terrorized for 18 months by an elusive serial killer who sexually assaulted and strangled to death a succession of female victims. Boasting that he was the killer, and that he had raped an additional 2,000 women, DeSalvo's horrific story became the subject of a bestselling book and major Hollywood movie. It was all a scam; a monstrous hoax - DeSalvo was not The Boston Strangler. In the only definitive book on this subject, author Susan Kelly's detailed investigation shows us the true DeSalvo - a twisted pathological liar whose hunger for celebrity made him confess to crimes he did not commit. Kelly also proves that the stranglings were committed by at least eight different slayers.
She even names the lead suspects - some of whom may have been getting away with murder for decades. Here is the true crime account that created a national sensation, leading to the reopening of this bizarre case and the rewriting of true crime history. Newly updated for this edition, "The Boston Stranglers" finally tells the explosive truth all of America has been waiting for.
