Hardcover. The author spent 3yrs investigating the crimes of John Joubert: crimes that sent a wave of fear through Nebraska in 1983. Two young boys were kidnapped and brutally murdered for no apparent reason. The manhunt that followed lasted 116 days. When lawmen finally caught their man he was no more than a child himself - a young man obsessed with death, unable to distinguish between pain and pleasure. The author was the only reporter to talk with John Joubert, who at the time of publication was under death sentence for his crimes. The author pieced together Joubert's progressive path of violence, spent hours talking with the families of the victims and found that Joubert most likely felt his "need to kill" long before he came to Nebraska. Illus. 198pp. 8vo. h/back. As New in dw.
