A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger 0061126667 9780061126666
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


 

In 1963, with the city of Boston already terrified by a series of savage crimes known as the Boston Stranglings, a murder occurred in Belmont, just a few blocks from the house of Sebastian Jungers family -- a murder that seemed to fit exactly the pattern of the Strangler. Roy Smith, a black man who had cleaned the victims house that day, was convicted, but the terror of the Strangler continued. Two years later, Albert DeSalvo, a handyman who had been working at the Jungers home on the day of the Belmont murder, and had often spent time there alone with Sebastian and his mother, confessed in lurid detail to being the Boston Strangler. By turns exciting and subtle, A Death in Belmont chronicles three lives that collide -- and are ultimately destroyed -- in the vortex of one of the most controversial serial murder cases in America. The power of the story and the brilliance of Jungers reporting place this book on the short shelf of classics beside In Cold Blood and Helter Skelter
