Book excerpt: VAMPIRE: The Richard Chase Murders is the tale of a diabolical, homicidal madman running amok, mutilating and murdering the unsuspecting residents in the quiet neighborhoods of Sacramento, CA. His diabolical and unrelenting desires, not just to kill his victims but to drink their blood, unleashed a terror within the city unlike anything the residents had ever known. By the time Richard Trenton Chase graduated high school, everyone knew he was strange. But no one had any idea how bizarre he'd become, or what dark impulses were flowing through his troubled brain. The transformation from the outwardly strange young man to the diabolical killer he ultimately became, was gradual and would not become known until it was too late. First it was the killing of small animals and birds, and the drinking of their blood. However, when these sacrifices failed to satiate his needs, Richard Chase would seek out the highest form of life, and the city of Sacramento, California would react in horror to the hideous murders and mutilations committed by his hands. For those living in the quiet neighborhoods where the murders occurred, it was nothing less than a time of terror until the fiend was captured. VAMPIRE is an in-depth look into the life and disturbed mind of a killer, his family, and his many victims, the living as well as the dead. Within these pages you'll discover what it was like for the police, and what a difficult job they had finding a killer they knew wouldn't stop until he was apprehended. It was a race against time, in a series of murders that would stun even the most hardened investigators. It is the story of a city under siege, held captive by the man whose appetite for blood could not be satiated.

Book excerpt: Vampires aren't real. But at one point in the 70s, in California, a man who had a penchant for drinking human blood and killing his victims terrorized the city of Sacramento. Here is his story. Richard Trenton Chase Jr., otherwise known as the Sacramento Vampire, terrorized California during the 1970s. He brutalized, killed, and even ate his victims. But what stood out most in the public's imagination was his penchant for drinking their blood, like a modern-day vampire. The truth is, Chase was a severely disturbed individual. Some killers are cold-blooded monsters, some simply have terrible impulse control-but others are completely deranged. Chase fits into that category.Since he was diagnosed with severe mental illness, it remains debatable how cognizant-and how culpable-Chase was of what he was doing.Prosecutors later highlighted several aspects of Chase's assaults which they believed showed that he was aware of the gravity of his actions, and should therefore be held accountable. His defense attorneys, on the other hand, tried to demonstrate that Chase was a man so removed from reality that he should be considered not guilty by reason of insanity.At any rate, whatever might have been going on in the mind of Richard Chase Jr., his victims were real, and the horrors he inflicted on them were very real as well. The deeds of Richard Chase Jr. most certainly make for a frightening, sad, and twisted tale. This book documents this disturbed man's troubled life, his horrific rampage, and his subsequent demise in full.

Popular and well-liked, his future looked bright as the Cali sun... but those around knew nothing of the dark truths that he fostered. His parents' marriage was rapidly falling apart, and soon he began to suffer from strange health problems. Rapidly declining, he decided there was only one solution... ... and that was blood. Richard's childhood fascination with death became a full-blown psychotic obsession, and the fear of losing his blood drove him to butcher and consume animals. In time, however, this wasn't enough, and Richard turned to larger game. The Vampire of Sacramento became one of California's most notorious serial killers, and Chase's crimes still haunt law enforcement to this day. But how did it happen? And could these crimes have somehow been prevented, sparing lives and untold sorrow? Draw your own conclusions as the judge of this disturbed young mind.

Book excerpt: The “fast-paced” inside story of the manhunt for bloodsucking serial killer Richard Chase (Publishers Weekly). Written by the case’s lead homicide detective, this gripping true crime account details the killing spree of one of California’s most gruesome murderers: Richard Chase, aka “the Vampire of Sacramento.” In January 1978, Sacramento police found the corpse of Teresa Wallin, a loving wife and soon-to-be mother. Veteran detective Lt. Ray Biondi immediately knew the case would be unlike anything he had ever seen before. The victim’s body was deliberately disfigured in nightmarish ways, and evidence suggested the culprit had collected large volumes of her blood. In less than a month, a two-year-old boy was missing, and two men, another woman, and a five-year-old child dead, their bodies contorted, like Wallin’s, to fulfill the killer’s demented sexual desires, and—most disturbingly—his taste for human blood. Previously published as The Dracula Killer, A Thirst for Blood is a riveting report of the investigation, from eyewitness testimonies to the discovery of the crime scenes to Chase’s interrogation. Lieutenant Biondi and his coauthor, Walt Hecox, provide an unflinching look at the “vampire killer” and the cunning police work that finally put an end to his reign of terror. The inspiration for Investigation Discovery’s Lore: Deadly Obsession and episodes of CSI and Criminal Minds, Chase’s crimes continue to haunt the world generations later.

The radio was still playing and there were some peculiar stains on the carpet. Wallin nervously followed the stains to his bedroom and encountered a scene so chilling that it would haunt him for the rest of his life. Teresa had been sexually assaulted and mutilated. She was also missing body parts and large volumes of blood. Four days later, the Sacramento Police Department were called to a home approximately a mile away from the Wallin residence. They were not prepared for the horror that awaited them. Daniel Meredith (56) and Jason Miroth (6) were shot multiple times. Evelyn Miroth (38) was disfigured, disembowelled and abused like Teresa. She was also missing body parts and large quantities of blood. David Ferreira (2), who Evelyn was babysitting, was nowhere to be seen and likely in the hands of the deranged mass murderer. It was official, Sacramento had a blood-thirsty serial killer in their midst. The FBI and local police were under no doubt that he would kill again and that his crimes would continue to escalate if not apprehended immediately.

Book excerpt: Jack the Ripper is one of the most recognisable names in true crime, slashing his way into the history books in London’s East End. But who WAS he? At least five women were murdered in Whitechapel with incomprehensible savagery in 1888. It’s easy to see why this period of time became known as the Autumn of Terror, as a faceless killer prowled the narrow, gloomy alleyways, and women feared walking alone at night. Against a backdrop of poverty, violence, and social injustice, Jack the Ripper left his mark on London and still fascinates true crime enthusiasts, historians, and researchers over 130 years later. This vivid, detailed, and impartial book brings to life the period of history in which elusive Jack stalked his victims. Jack the Ripper: Straight for the Jugular includes not only the stories of the victims, the sensational letters, and an examination of the crime scenes, but also addresses intriguing questions, such as: Was The Ripper responsible for the murders of Emma Smith and Martha Tabram, which preceded the “canonical five”, and the later atrocities, like the Pinchin Street Torso? What did the police and press get up to, and which colourful characters fell foul of the law along the way? Can we apply modern criminology to help us deduce Jack’s identity? Focusing on the facts and cutting through the myths, which one of the 10 key suspects tackled in this book is most likely to be the killer? What happened afterwards to the police officials involved in the case, and what do the murder sites look like now? How has the Whitechapel Fiend been portrayed in popular culture over the years? This book puts one of the most infamous serial killers of all time into the geographical, historical, and social context of London’s East End, offering tantalising details about how its inhabitants lived and worked. Did you know that Londoners were charged tuppence for the privilege of sleeping on a washing line? You might have heard of the cryptic message left in Goulston Street, but did you know about the other Jack the Ripper graffiti scrawled on Whitechapel’s walls? If you’re looking for a book which is thorough but eschews idle speculation, going “straight for the jugular”, this one is for you. Providing a comprehensive insight into one of the most shocking true crime murder cases in the world, Jack the Ripper: Straight for the Jugular is brought to life with pictures from the time, and will take you on an informative, thrilling, and atmospheric journey through the East End’s darkest hours. Can we finally put a name to the monster who committed the Whitechapel Murders? If you’re ready to join the foggy, lamplit world of Ripperology, pick up your copy today!

Book excerpt: The “compelling true story” of “The Dating Game Killer” by the radio host and bestselling author of Drinks, Dinner & Death (Burl Barer, Edgar Award-winning author). Beginning in 1968 and continuing into the 1970s, a predator stalked California and New York, torturing, raping and murdering young girls and women. But who was the monster behind these tragedies? Eventually, a suspect emerged, but he didn’t look like a monster. Indeed, Rodney Alcala was a handsome, charming photographer who’d once studied film at New York University under director Roman Polanski. With his wit and easy self-confidence and humor, he’d even been selected as the “winner” on the popular television show “The Dating Game.” But his real game was much more sinister. In 2010, Alcala was convicted of murdering five women in California during the 1970s; then in 2013, as he waited on Death Row, he confessed to the murder of two more in New York. Yet, that might not be the end of the nightmare he caused. At his arrest, police found his “portfolio” with thousands of nude and erotic photographs of women and boys, who may also be among his victims. In The Killing Game, bestselling true crime author and radio show host, Alan R. Warren reveals the shocking details of Alcala’s brutal crimes, as well as the trials and appeals that stretched on for decades and may still not be over.
