"Gary Evans was one of the most interesting criminal masterminds I have written about. The sheer intelligence and calculating nature he embodied will shock readers into, at times, sympathizing with him, almost finding themselves wanting to like him; while, at other times, hating what he allowed himself to become. He mastered not only the art of disguise and burglary, but exploiting people-especially females. The letters I uncovered between Evans and David 'Son of Sam' Berkowitz will give readers true insight into the mind of Son of Sam and why he committed such heinous acts of murder. To understand the relationship Evans had with James Horton, the cop who pursued-and, remarkably, befriended-him for thirteen years, one will walk in Horton's shoes and recognize that the one thing many career criminals as smart and malicious as Gary Evans cannot resist is the one thing that eventually brings them down: the female. How this story concludes-or does it, really?-is the most incredible and surprising ending in the history of true-crime story telling. I challenge anyone to tell me different."
