Until she met Michael David Lissy, the sleazy proprietor of a scuba diving school who was a coke addict that consorted with pimps, prostitutes and other known criminals. Burned out and broke, he had nothing going for him. Then he met Kathryn...a match made in hell. On July 6, 1984, the raped and mutilated body of Kathryn Martini Lissy was found at the Valley River Inn in Eugene, Oregon. Soon afterward, police arrested Michael David Lissy, Kathryn's husband of one year. A few months earlier, Lissy had taken out a large insurance policy on Kathryn's life, naming him as sole beneficiary. Then he hired an underworld assassin to stalk and kill his wife. After one of the most sensational trials in Eugene's history, Lissy was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

The man let her live. That was more than the savage Darren Dee O'Neall did for beautiful young Robin Smith, whom he first deftly separated from her fiance, then bestially abused and killed. Why did he do it? How did he do it? Here is the riveting true-crime story that takes you into the mind of an evil murderer, into the agony of his victims, and into the core of the massive manhunt that pulled out all stops to track down a vicious sex slayer.
