  1. Hi, I've just read both parts of the Hillside Killers books and they are top notch. What excellent writing. You are the only author who has address that singular Bianchi mistake, when he couldn't figure out what to do when the psychiatrist "drew" a circle on his hand and asked him to tell him when he was touching inside or outside the circle. I saw a video of that on YouTube years ago and it was astonishing. I can't find it anymore! If you know what it has for a headline please email me back. Thanks, erminiver@yahoo.com (Cecilia Brown)
