Synopsis

Ten-Year-Old Krystal Surles Watched In Horror
As Her Best Friend Was Murdered At The Hands Of An Intruder.

Then with cold-blooded precision he brought a twelve-inch boning knife to Krystal's throat. With a single, violent slash, he severed her windpipe and left her for dead. Miraculously, she survived and would lead authorities to the arrest of 35-year-old Tommy Lynn Sells, a former truck driver, carnival worker, and cross-country drifter...

He Aspired To Become "The Worst Serial Killer Of All Time."

With no apparent motive and no common pattern to his inconceivable bloodshed, the elusive Sells had carved his way across the country for two decades slaughtering women, men, transients, entire families, teenagers, and even infants with ghoulish abandon.

Through The Window is more than an investigation into a crime spree that stunned a nation. It's an utterly terrifying plunge into the unfathomable dark mind of a serial killer, and the heart-wrenching story of the brave child who finally brought him to justice.

A must read

Very sad and a must read. A book that is hard to put down. Make sure you have a box of tissues with you while you are reading.

Thorough, brutal, well-researched!
June 8th, 2014
This is a story to make note of. The author has done a fantastic job of creating a 3-dimensional view of this prolific and terrifyingly glib serial killer as well as presenting the human side of this tragic member of our society. Having worked with criminals with sometimes very severe personality disorders, I have much empathy for the difficult paths those people have traveled to get them to get them to a place where they are unwelcome in society. I have also never doubted that my first consideration when thinking about the release of my charges back into the community is the safety of that community. It's a travesty that our society is unable to identify people like Mr. Sells before they are so damaged that there is no way back for them to be a positive and contributing member of society. There is also no way to tell a charming and well-spoken humanitarian from a charming and well-spoken sociopath without knowing their long term behaviors, and even that is not a guarantee. In the end, all we can do is to be cautious and observant and live our lives the best way we can without becoming a victim of our own fears.
