Soon after the murder of her friend, New York writer andMoreLinda Wolfe, who brilliantly chronicled the Robert Chambers Preppie Murder in her true-crime classic Wasted, now applies her journalistic skills to a deeply personal and affecting memoir. Soon after the murder of her friend, New York writer and activist Jacqui Bernard, Wolfe set out to find her friends killer -- and unmasked a deadly Don Juan who fatally seduced the smart, attractive women who loved him. In 1994, Richard Caputo, object of an international FBI manhunt, turned himself in, confessing to the brutal murders of four women. For more than two decades, he had moved with ease across the U.S. and into Mexico, changing identities and killing with impunity. After his arrest, Linda Wolfe set out to prove Jacqui Bernard had been one of his victims. But what began as a quest for closure became a compelling odyssey into the world of a seductive sociopath whose violence was rooted in his troubled childhood in Argentina, and who spread his venomous charm from suburban Long Island to San Franciscos Pacific Heights. Culminating in three prison interviews with Caputo himself, Wolfes quest yielded not only a frightening and unforgettable portrait of a serial killer, but a powerful and poignant evocation of the lives he touched, twisted, and destroyed.Love Me to Death is a candid, gripping story of innocence and evil, crime and punishment -- and Linda Wolfes own determined quest to unmask -- and face -- the enemy.
