Book Description

In this riveting true crime book, "The Man Who Loved to Kill Women"--Dayton Leroy Rogers, was known in Portland, Oregon as a respected businessman and devoted husband and father. But at night he abducted women, forced them into sadistic bondage games, and thrilled in their pain, terror and mutilation. His murderous spree was stopped only after, in plain view, he slashed to death his final victim...and when a hunter accidentally stumbled onto the burial grounds of seven other women Rogers had killed one-by-one in the depths of the Molalla Forest did police realize they were dealing with a serial killer whose bloodlust knew no bounds. This is the shocking true story of the horrifying crimes, capture, and conviction of Dayton Leroy Rogers, Oregon's mild-mannered businessman by day--vicious serial killer by night.

About the Author

True crime author Gary C. King has been writing bizarre, compelling and authentic true stories of murder and mayhem for the past 33 years. In the pages of his books you will find stories about serial murderers and cannibal killers, celebrity murders, torture murders, crimes of passion, among many others—chilling crimes that could only be perpetrated by the twisted minds and gruesome obsessions of coldblooded killers, the stuff of which horror movies and novels are made. Much of his freelancing has been for True Detective magazine between day jobs that included technical writer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and specialized work for the Department of Defense. In 1980 he took over crime writer Ann Rule’s job as Pacific Northwest stringer for the detective magazines based out of New York, and wrote for those so-called “dick” books until they ceased publication in 1995 and hasn’t looked back since. In addition to writing 17 traditionally-published books for Penguin USA, St. Martin’s Press, Pinnacle Books, and John Blake Publishing in the U.K. and 500 or so stories for the aforementioned detective magazines, King has also written extensively for Investigation Discovery’s website and continues to provide occasional online content for Turner Broadcasting’s Crime Library. King’s television appearances have included Entertainment Tonight, Larry King Live, Inside Edition, Court TV, MSNBC’s Headliners and Legends, E!, British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Extra TV, and several other national and local programs. He also frequently provides radio interviews. King was recently featured in an episode of Biography about serial killer Robert “Willie” Pickton, the subject of his book, Butcher, and in an episode of Dominick Dunne’s Power, Privilege, and Justice called “Strange Bedfellows,” about the murder of Nevada State Controller Kathy Augustine and the subject of King’s An Almost Perfect Murder. King is an active member of the Association of Independent Authors, and is also president of that organization’s Las Vegas chapter. He also holds active memberships in the Authors Guild, Mystery Writers of America, The Crime Writers' Association (U.K.), International Thriller Writers, and the International Association of Crime Writers. King is also active in social media online. You can connect with him on Twitter and Facebook, and can also reach him via his website.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly magnificent read 13 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gary C King has certainly done wonders in writing the account of Dayton Leroy Rogers. Horrifying as some of the scenes are, you are taken much deeper than that. You get an insight into what it is like to be investigating such horrific crimes and yet you are still able to remain focused into the lives of the people involved. He has managed to take you there to envisage the most gruesome and sadistic acts of violence ever heard of and yet still remains to the point. A truly magnificent read.

Excellent book and very well written. Right from the start of reading this book I couldn't help but read at every available opportunity. Trying to put complex legal cases into words isn't easy, but the author did a splendid job.
