To all appearances, Dennis Rader was a model citizen in the small town where he had lived with his family almost his entire life. He was a town compliance officer, a former Boy Scout leader, the president of his church congregation, and a seemingly ordinary father and husband. But Rader's average life belied the existence of his other self: he was the BTK serial killer. The self-named BTK (for Bind, Torture, Kill) had terrorized Wichita for thirty-one years, not only with his brutal, sexually motivated crimes, but also through his taunting communications with the media and law enforcement. Drawing from extensive interviews with Rader's pastor, congregation, detectives, and psychologists, and from his unnervingly detailed thirty-two-hour confession, author Singular explores the chilling story of a man considered a "spiritual leader" by his pastor and congregation, who turned out to be the devil next door.--From publisher description.
