Kitty Genovese was murdered in 1964 in the Kew Gardens section of Queens, NY. Her death was unnecessary. Had any of 38 witnesses acted, i.e. calling police, subduing her attacker, she might have lived. Instead she was left to die near the entrance of her Austin Avenue apartment. She waged a terrific battle before she died. I have profiled her killer, Winston Moseley, from his roots in Alabama.

My e-book is a close examination of the lives of women who were murdered by the Boston Strangler in 1962-63. I researched the women's ethnic backgrounds, their families, immigration history, employment, living places, and death circumstances. Different than other true crime books, I focused on the people who were victims instead of the criminal. Each of the women was noteworthy in her own right.
