During the 1920s, in more than a dozen cities, over four years, and across two continents, women were being butchered. Eyewitneses claim the perpetrator was a hulking Bible-carrying brute who lumbered on all fours, and laughed maniacally with each new slaughter. The crimes haunted San Francisco Police Captain Charles Dullea, the last honest cop in one of the most notoriously corrupt departments in the country. But nothing could have prepared Dullea for where the case- and the truth-would take him.

For thirty-one years, an unremarkable family man stalked, killed, and terrorized the people of Wichita, Kansas. He was a devoted husband. A helpful Boy Scout dad. A reliable, conscientious employee. A dependable church president. And behind it all, the notorious serial killer BTK—a self-anointed acronym for "bind, torture, kill." Now that he's in prison serving ten consecutive life sentences, 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 intimately acquainted with the BTK killer and Rader the family man, or by the dedicated cops who finally caught him. Bind, Torture, Kill: The Inside Story of the Serial Killer Next Door takes 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. Bind, Torture, Kill is written by four award-winning crime reporters for The Wichita Eagle with the enthusiastic help of Wichita police lieutenant Ken Landwehr and his BTK Task Force. With hours of exclusive interviews with key Task Force members; 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, Bind, Torture, Kill lays bare the secret story behind the BTK psychopath and the people who brought him down.
