Homicide Miami has both. I highly recommend this story of murder and greed at their worst.' Vincent Bugliosi, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Helter Skelter and Divinity of Doubt& 'Torture murder for sex has, unfortunately, become yesterday's news. It is what serial killers are all about. Torture murder for money is rare. This is what gives Peter Davidson's new book its punch. The two main characters in this sordid drama of predatory psychopaths are the embodiment of what we mean by 'evil.' Lugo and especially Dorbal are poster children for the death penalty. But they are as fantastical for stupidity as they are for depravity. First a bungled murder, then a bungled theft and a bungled dismemberment, foiled when a woman's hair jams the killers' electric saw& .& .& . Davidson said his book is not for the squeamish. True. But once you start it you can't put it down.' Dr. Michael H. Stone, professor of clinical psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, and host of Most Evil on Investigation Discovery
