House of Secrets
Kensington Publishing Corp., 1 apr 2014 - 448 pagine
"Horrific, totally engrossing. . . A compelling look at insane brilliance." --Ann Rule
A psychopathic mastermind whose reign of terror had no limits--even murder. . .
For years, Eddie Lee Sexton ruled his family with perverse domination. He enforced every cruelty imaginable, from vicious beatings to raping his daughters and fathering their children. Yet the sadistic father nearly escaped death row on a legal technicality.
Lowell Cauffiel's unsparing non-fiction thriller reveals a house of horrors Eddie Lee Sexton thought no one would ever see. Now updated, it shows how Sexton's sick genius ultimately dodged justice, and investigates the tragic aftermath of his victimized family.
"An odyssey into American pathology. Deeply disturbing." --Detroit Free Press
"A balanced and grimly engaging true-crime account." --Publishers Weekly
"Cauffiel knows how to dramatize true crime." --Elmore Leonard
Warning! Contains 16 pages of graphic photos.
