Summary
In researching his acclaimed true crime books, Phil Carlo has interviewed some of the most infamous criminals and killers of our times in prisons throughout the country. He has been able to forge trusting relationships with his subjects, enabling him to extract the facts behind their infamous acts and identify what motivated them to commit their horrific crimes. What wasn't known to his readers is that he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a terminal illness that causes the muscles to atrophy over time. But rather than lying down and succumbing to the disease, Carlo continued to work. Here, he documents his experiences with ALS and explains how he has managed to continue to write prodigiously in the face of adversity. This book pulls the reader into the netherworld of Mafia bosses, hit men and serial killers, as well as the hard realities of dealing with a fatal disease.--From publisher description
