For thirty-one years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named BTK - for bind them, torture them, kill them. He slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader ~ a friendly neighbor, a devoted husband, a helpful Boy Scout dad, the respected president of his church...

What will you do, if a serial killer live just next to your door?
This book was written based on true story. I enjoy read crime's story but that doesn't mean I support what the criminals have done.

Dennis Rader eluded authorities for more than 30 years, killing in his neighborhood, and killing indiscriminately. One of the reasons it was difficult to catch him was that Rader did not have a "typical victim" like most serial killers do. He killed men, women, and children alike. The only facet connecting different murders was Rader's signature "binding, torturing, and killing" of all of his victims. Another reason why it was difficult to place Rader on the list of suspects was his societal standing: Rader was a Boy Scout dad, kindly neighbor, and the president of his church. He eluded his friends, family, church, and the police. The police managed to catch him only after Rader became too confident, believing that he forged a friendship with the main detective. 

Dennis Rader mug shot
Dennis Rader is an American Serial Killer and he was known as the BTK killer. If you want to know more about BTK, this book will answer all your questions, including the details about the murder and the investigators who worked on the case. A little advice from me, this book is not easy to read. Very disturbing actually but I manage to finish it. I feel sorry for the victims and the family. 

I cannot imagine how friends and family cope with their lose. I mean, they lost their love ones in a gruesome murder. I read in the book that some of the peoples never recover from their trauma. The past keep shadowing them, turning their life upside down. I cannot blame thing I learn from this book is, everyone of us must have something/someone to rely on whenever we face the hardest time in our life. Something like friends, belief and God...
