Paperback. Michelle Michaud was a suburban northern California mother and a part-time prostitute. James Daveggio was a drug abuser and violent rapist. Together they forged one of the most perverse alliances in criminal history - and in September 1997 - began a nightmare spree of incest, kidnapping, rape, torture - and maybe murder. After customising Michaud's green minivan into the ultimate mobile torture chamber, the predatory pair hit the road to hell. From California to Nevada, they abducted defenceless young women, including one of Daveggio's own relatives, and forced them to endure hours - and sometimes days - of unspeakable sexual acts in their orgy of terror. Eventually captured by police, Michaud and Daveggio were convicted on May 19, 1999 for the abduction and rape of 20yr old Juanita Rodriguez in Reno, Nevada. They have also been indicted for the first degree murder of Vanessa Samson, 22, in Pleasanton, California. At time of publication they were awaiting trial, facing a possible conviction that could condemn them both to die by lethal injection. Illus. with 16pp. of photos. 350pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
