URGES by Christopher Hawley Martin
URGES: A Chronicle of Serial Killer Larry Hall chronicles the life of Larry DeWayne Hall who, in 1994, confessed to killing four women and young girls - yet Hall has never been convicted of murder. Police in some jurisdictions believe Hall may have killed as many as 40 women and young girls in up to a dozen states. How was this mild-mannered janitor able to kill with impunity for years? What psychopathy drove Larry Hall to sadistic sexual murder? How was Hall able to lure so many women into his clutches? Why did he vary his M.O.? What happened to the girls who are still missing? Could Hall be innocent, as he now maintains? A chilling tale of serial murder! Includes an extensive photo section.
