To his neighbors, Jerry Brudo was a gentle man whose mild manner contrasted with his awesome physical strength. To his employers, Jerry was a fine worker. To his wife, he was a good husband. And to the Oregon police, Jerry Brudo was the most hideously twisted killer they had ever unmasked.
Ann Rule delivers another chilling, true-crime story with Lust Killer. Often reality can be more fearful than fiction.
Jerry Brudos was indeed a very sick individual with a hatred of women that started in early childhood. Some of the twisted things he did to his victims was nothing short of shocking. He felt no remorse for the young women he violated and killed.
There is also a lesson to be learned by reading this shocking story: be aware of your surroundings, and those around you; fight, scream, or do anything you can to draw attention to yourself if you are in a threatening situation; never believe your kidnapper when he says he won't hurt you if you come along quietly.
If you are a true crime fan, I would recommend this book!
