Fiend: Shocking True Story Of Americas Youngest Serial Killer - 00 edition

Fiend: Shocking True Story Of Americas Youngest Serial Killer (ISBN10: 067101448X; ISBN13: 9780671014483)

ISBN10: 067101448X

Summary: A MONSTER PREYED UPON THE CHILDREN OF NINETEENTH-CENTURY BOSTON. HIS CRIMES WERE APPALLING -- AND YET HE WAS LITTLE MORE THAN A CHILD HIMSELF. When fourteen-year-old Jesse Pomeroy was arrested in 1874, a nightmarish reign of terror over an unsuspecting city came to an end. ''The Boston Boy Fiend'' was imprisoned at last. But the complex questions sparked by his ghastly crime spree -- the hows and whys of vicious juvenile crime -- were as relevant in the so-called Age of Innocence as
they are today. Jesse Pomeroy was outwardly repellent in appearance, with a gruesome ''dead'' eye; inside, he was deformed beyond imagining. A sexual sadist of disturbing precocity, he satisfied his atrocious appetites by abducting and torturing his child victims. But soon, the teenager's bloodlust gave way to another obsession: murder. Harold Schechter, whose true-crime masterpieces are ''well-documented nightmares for anyone who dares to look'' (Peoria Journal Star), brings his acclaimed mix of page-turning storytelling, brilliant insight, and fascinating historical documentation to Fiend-- an unforgettable account from the annals of American crime.
