An Argentinian writer captures the voice of a man who in 1982 murdered four taxi drivers without any apparent motive, using interviews, forensic documents, and newspaper clippings to bring his story to life.
Melogno’s life in prison in the wake of sentencing provides compelling stories about the brutality he witnessed along with coping mechanisms necessary to insure survival. This is a true-crime book that pulls no punches in covering a killer, but doesn’t skimp on humanity, either. A solid effort not to be missed.
Busqued unnerves and entertains readers with this forensic tale synthesized from more than 90 hours of dialogue with a serial killer ... Though this book is short, it packs a hard punch, from the first page, through the artfully rendered interview process with criminal, arresting officers, and psychiatrist. The narrative is perfect for anyone fascinated by the criminal mind, the distinctions between mental illness and possession, or the concept of predestined evil ... A truly visceral read that will not let readers look away.
