Présentation de l'éditeur

In Trace Evidence, a gripping true-crime drama that reads like the best suspense novels, Bruce Henderson ( #1 New York Times bestseller And the Sea Will Tell) unravels the shocking story of the "I-5" sex-strangler murders from behind-the-scenes of the police investigation hunting for the rapist-strangler who cruised the lonely highways and byways of California looking for his next victim.

For years an elusive serial killer sought his prey: young women along lonely highways of the West. By abducting, sexually assaulting, and strangling his victims in one jurisdiction and dumping their bodies in another, he created an investigative nightmare for detectives throughout northern California.
In a gripping true-crime drama that reads like a haunting suspense novel, bestselling author Bruce Henderson ( #1 New York Times bestseller And the Sea Will Tell), unravels the shocking story of the "Interstate 5" sex-strangler murders drawing on exclusive interviews with key investigators: Vito Bertocchini, the burly ex-street cop who took the killing of one beautiful young woman personally; Kay Maulsby, the rookie homicide detective who helped to unmask the serial killer; Ray Biondi, who fought budget cuts that threatened to derail the investigation; and criminalist Faye Springer, who attempted to tie the suspect to his victims through persuasive microscopic evidence.
The killer was uncannily adept at staying one step ahead of authorities as the body count grew. Even after police finally identified the culprit -- when a would-be victim escaped his grasp -- they lacked the evidence to charge him with murder. Instead, he was convicted of assault and sentenced to a few months in county jail. With the clock ticking toward his release, investigators worked desperately to build a first-degree murder case before the killer was set free.
Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews -- including the killer's wife, who never spoke to authorities -- Henderson delves into the psychological complexities of his characters with astute sensitivity and eloquence, building a chilling, fascinating portrait of a depraved and unrepentant serial killer whose only brother was a veteran homicide detective in a neighboring county.
Trace Evidence, structured with the razor-sharp precision of a Hitchcock film, is a powerful commentary about our society's priorities. If investigative resources had been based on need and not on politics, lives might have been saved. Knowing that this is a true story and the characters are real people will haunt you for days.

"Trace Evidence is a gripping, fast-paced account of what it takes to capture
and make a winnable case against an elusive serial killer. Bruce Henderson has written a fascinating true-crime book that both frightens and enlightens."
—Vincent Bugliosi, author of Helter Skelter

"Trace Evidence tells the behind-the-scenes story of one of the most exciting and frustrating serial-killer cases of my seventeen years working Homicide. This book captures our desperate, high-stakes effort to identify and make a case against a diabolical killer who would never stop on his own. How many more would have to die?" —Lt. Ray Biondi (Ret.), Homicide Bureau, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department

"Bruce Henderson, coauthor of And the Sea Will Tell, has written a compelling account of the capture of that most vicious of criminals: the random serial killer.”
—Library Journal

“Henderson does a masterful job...Lusciously detailed and immensely readable, this is true-crime writing at close to top form.” —Booklist

“A roadside strangler confounds California detectives in this tense and gritty true-crime account from the co-author of And the Sea Will Tell. With novelistic urgency, Henderson tells two equally chilling stories in Trace Evidence: how a handful of detectives and a trace-evidence expert nabbed the killer and how a police detective’s brother and ‘somebody’s husband’ became that killer.”

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Page Turner! 5 janvier 2001
Par Steve German - Publié sur Amazon.com
Rarely do I find true crime books that are written so well. This book, although about a true killing spree, reads like a novel and is hard to put down. I can't count the number of nights I found myself reading it until 2 in the morning. Outstanding journalism which brings in the human interest of the detectives, the victims, and the killer. Must read!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the Few Case Studies I recommend 25 décembre 1998
Par Pat Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Bruce Henderson very carefully details the present day difficulties in conducting a successful serial homicide investigation. With so much unwarrented hoopla given to FBI profilers on bringing down serial killers, this fine book shows where the bulk of the work of a serial homicide investigation occurs; in the homicide bureau of the local police department. One must realize, however, that a number of extremely competent investigators were working on these cases, Ray Biondi and Vito Bertocchini just to name two, so excellent on-the-site profiling was accomplished. Even so, problems with police administration refusing to release information to the public, refusing to allocate resources to further the investigation and continuing difficulties with the D.A.'s office in taking the murders to trial are clearly described. This is one of the most useful accounts any profiling student will encounter in his reading. Pat Brown, Director/Investigative Criminal Profiler/The Sexual Homicide Exchange of Washington DC and Vicinity

5.0 étoiles sur 5 engrossing,suspenseful,written with respect for the victims 17 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read the other comments and would like to say to the mother of one of Kibbe's victims that I am very sorry for her terrible loss... One of the elements that elevates this book above most true-crime reporting is the emphasis on the victims, who they were, who loved them, who misses them. Murder can so often seem like just numbers, incomprehensible and not close enough to home to worry about. Along with an excellent, compelling account of the development of the investigation, Henderson brings home the full tragedy.

I recently saw an interview with a serial killer on "60 Minutes" and decided to order the new TRACE EVIDENCE ebook. This is behind-the-scenes of the police investigation to find and stop northern California's I-5 serial killer who kidnapped, raped and strangled at least a dozen young women (maybe a lot more) during the 1970s and 1980s. You are literally riding with the cops as they try to catch the killer. The cars of the victims were often found abandoned on the highway in working order, and the bodies of unidentified "Jane Does" were found miles away from where they were taken -- one as far as 100 miles. It took good, solid detective work to start making all the connections, and even when they knew who was responsible they still had to build a case in order to get him off the street and convict him. Reading this, you forget it is not a fictional novel but a true story. Like the fact that the killer serial's brother is a homicide detective in nearby Nevada!! The brothers were close, too, and this may have informed the killer about police procedures and helped him get away with murder for so long. The story is expertly researched and told by Bruce Henderson, a bestselling author I've read before. All his nonfiction books read like novels. Henderson makes the cops, victims and killer come alive on the pages. He even interviewed the killer's wife, who refused to speak to authorities. (An intriguing subtext here, as in "Portrait of a Serial Killer's Marriage.") I finished TRACE EVIDENCE in a few days, and had a hard time putting it down. The "shocking updates" with recent news about the killer was really interesting. This story would make a great movie, and I bet someday it will come to the big screen.
