Prolific author, playwright, bon vivant of the literary set, Hollywood insider. Everybody loved and trusted Jack Unterweger. Unfortunately, eleven women saw a different side to the charmed celebrity: a cold-blooded serial killer whose gift for manipulation was genius - and pure and evil. While serving a life sentence for the murder of a young girl, Jack Unterweger wrote seven books, saw his autobiography made into a film, and became a cause celebre among influential Austrian literati who successfully campaigned for his release. Riding high on the fame, he arrived in Los Angeles where he nurtured his career as a journalist. Then, one by one, Hollywood prostitutes started turning up dead. Unterweger covered the story. There was a reason why his reporting of the crimes seemed so vivid. Author John Leake peels back the layers of deception to reveal the alarming story of an international celebrity - and reviled serial killer - and a lifetime of shocking twists no Hollywood screenwriter could have invented.
