About the Book:
Strang isn't the small, quaint town it appears to be. It's haunted every night by a creature the townsfolk refer to as Halloween. Once the sun sets each day, Halloween emerges to collect its treats: a small, live offering from each household. The residents comply because no one wants to be the target of Halloween's tricks. But the nightmare of residing in Strang is nothing compared to the yearly ritual Halloween demands of the citizens on All Hallows' Eve.

Bind, Torture, Kill : The Inside Story of BTK, the Serial Killer Next Door by Roy Wenzl, Tim Potter, and Hurst Laviana, L. Kelly
About the Book:
The definitive story of Dennis Rader, the notorious BTK serial killer, told by the award-winning crime reporters at the Wichita Eagle with—for the first time—the full cooperation of the BTK Task Force.
For thirty-one years, an unremarkable family man stalked, killed, and terroized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. He was a devoted husband. A helpful Boy Scout dad. A dependable church president. And behind it all, the notorious BTK—a self-anointed acronym for “bind, torture, kill”—serial killer.
Now that he’s in prison, the whole world knows that Dennis Rader is BTK. But the intricate twists and shocking turns of this story have never before been told by the people who were there—and intimately acquainted with both the BTK killer and Rader the family man. BTK: The Serial Killer Next Door will take readers behind closed doors, revealing the full and horrific tale as seen through the eyes of the killer, his victims, the investigators, and the reporters who covered it all.
BTK: The Serial Killer Next Door is written by four award-winning crime reporters for the Wichita Eagle who covered the story for over twenty years, and with the full cooperation—for the first time—of the Wichita Police Department’s BTK Task Force. During the decades-long investigation, the police chief publicly declared that anyone giving information to the press would not only lose his job but be prosecuted; only now have members of the Task Force been given permission to talk. With hours of exclusive interviews with key Task Force members, including commander Kenny Landwehr, in-depth interviews with the families of victims, an interview with Jeff Rader, the notorious killer’s brother, and over thirty years’ worth of original reporters’ notes, archival news stories, photos, documents, and material previously suppressed at the request of the police, BTK will lay bare the secret story behind the BTK psychopath and the men who brought him down.
With compelling writing, unparalled sources and access, and an incredible subject, BTK: The Inside Story of the Serial Killer Next Door is true crime writing at its very best.
