The Man Who Killed Boys: The John Wayne Gacy, Jr. Story
A true story of mass murder in a Chicago suburb.
Successful businessman, community benefactor, good friend and neighbor-- and perverted mass murderer.
Over a period of three years, John Wayne Gacy, Jr. sexually tortured and murdered 33 boys. His friends and neighbors in his unassuming Illinois community never suspected a thing. Gacy was a Jekyll-and-Hyde figure, leading an outwardly normal life, but secretly brutalizing dozens of young men in a hidden lair, and concealing their bodies under the floorboards of his suburban home.
Through extensive personal interviews with those who knew Gacy, veteran true-crime scribe Clifford L. Linedecker takes us on a shocking ride through Gacy's life, delving deep into the man's troubled past, recounting his appalling series of murders, and recreating the drama of his trial-- which resulted in his execution by lethal injection in 1994. Gruesome and horrifying, The Man Who Killed Boys reveals stark terror set amid the daily lives of an ordinary community.

The story of John wayne gacy is a horrible one, but personally I found this book to be really boring. If you are interested in learning more about the victims, the investigation or even Gacy himself then this is not the book for you. It does provide some insight to how he was perceived by friends and neighbours, and what his outward personality was like...I wouldn't recommend this book.
