Hi David,

Yes I know of the unsoled murder case of Dr Yeates in Vauclause in 1960. It is certainly an unusual case, particularly regarding the adrenalin injection. I think it is in one of my vintage true crime books, but I've not heard of the book by Candace Sutton.

Kind regards,

It is at times like that that I turn to what I like to call free-writing. I just set an hour or two and a blank page, unrelated to the project at hand, and just type, without interruptions. I just madly bash away at the keyboard or a notepad and let ideas flows. Once I am in the zone, I often then return to the 'real' task and am able to write. (less)

This was on my to read list for sooooo long, but I was very disappointed. The whole second section was superfluous and unnecessary.

Why isn't this more well known. I love Stephen King's novellas but I had missed this one. It has sat on my bookshelf for quite a while, I wish now I had read it sooner.

John Edward Douglas
“[Talking about Monte Rissell] ...and like Ed Kemper he was able to convince the psychiatrist he was making excellent progress while he was actually killing human beings. This is kind of a sick version of the old joke about how many psychiatrists it takes to change a light bulb. The answer being, just one, but only if the light bulb wants to change.”
John Edward Douglas, Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit

Isaac Asimov
“Writing is a lonely job. Even if a writer socializes regularly, when he gets down to the real business of his life, it is he and his type writer or word processor. No one else is or can be involved in the matter.”
Isaac Asimov, I. Asimov
