The true story of father-and-son sex-obsessed killers who betray each other in court—from the New York Times–bestselling author of Monster Slayer.
Thomas Soria Sr. began sexually abusing his son, T.J., when the boy was six years old. When T.J. reached dating age, he obeyed his father’s request to bring girlfriends home, and watched as his father molested them. Soria Sr.’s fantasies turned increasingly violent, culminating in an obsession with cutting and torturing young women while sexually assaulting them.
On March 19, 2000, in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, T.J., nineteen, lured nine-year-old Krystal Steadman into the family apartment. Forty-year-old Soria Sr. brutally raped the girl, then stabbed her to death. He wasn’t worried—he knew T.J. would get rid of the body for him.
The Sorias finally turned against each other during Nevada’s first father-and-son death penalty case. The detailed courtroom evidence and testimony shocked even hardened law enforcement veterans and wrote a new chapter in the deviant psychopathology of lust-murderers. Soria Sr. committed suicide in prison, cheating the executioner and leaving T.J. to spend the rest of his life behind bars without parole.
