The national bestselling author of Zodiac and Zodiac Umasked "will keep readers turning the pages" (Detroit Free Press) with the unsolved murder of Bob Crane, star of TV's "Hogan's Heroes." Seven years after the show's cancellation, Crane was found strangled and bludgeoned to death, his nude corpse surrounded by pornographic snapshots of himself with numerous women, homemade videotapes of the actor's S&M orgies-and few clues to the killer's identity.
