On the day of the murder, Albert DeSalvo the man who would eventually confess in lurid detail to the Strangler's crimes is also in Belmont, working as a carpenter at the Jungers' home. In this spare, powerful narrative, Sebastian Junger chronicles three lives that collide and ultimately are destroyed in the vortex of one of the first and most controversial serial murder cases in America.
