Her skeletonized remains are found in a field, near a torture device. Who committed this heinous crime? And why?* A teenager's body is found hanging in a storm sewer. His clothes are neatly folded by the entrance and a stopwatch is found in his mouth. Is he the victim of a bizarre, ritualistic murder... or an elaborate masturbatory fantasy gone awry?* A married couple, driving with their toddler in the backseat, pick up a female hitchhiker. They kidnap her and for seven years keep her as a sexual slave. The wife agreed to this inhuman arrangement in exchange for having a second child. Who was to blame?As gruesome as the crimes are and as unsettling as the odds seem, Hazelwood proves that the right amount of determination and logic can bring even the most cunning and devious criminals to justice.   Dark Dreams is a 2002 Edgar Award Nominee for Best Fact Crime.
