The Bayou Strangler: Louisiana’s Most Gruesome Serial Killer

'“Although the FBI once considered him the country’s most significant serial killer—twenty-three victims!—the Bayou Strangler hardly made national news. Fred Rosen takes us to the bars of the French Quarter, the dirt roads of rural Louisiana, and a little-known subculture. The prejudices he uncovers turned reporters away, but not two dedicated detectives, who emerge as heroes. This book makes a fascinating read not only as true crime but also as a biting social commentary.” —Ann Marie Ackermann, author of Death of an Assassin: The True Story of the German Murderer Who Died Defending Robert E. Lee “How was one of the most prolific serial killers able to operate undetected for nearly a decade? Read The Bayou Strangler for the shocking truth.” —Jim Seeley, “Mr. True Crime” on social mediaPraise for Fred Rosen  “The one true crime masterpiece I have read.” —The Guardian on Lobster Boy   “A truly unforgettable story, brilliantly written. A true crime classic.” —Dan Zupansky, host of Blog Talk Radio’s True Murder on Flesh Collectors   “A fast-moving, satisfying production of popular history.” —Booklist on Gold!'
