This was about Dean Corll the serial killer. I found the book hard to read at the beggining, but it picked up after Dean was killed and it told more of what actually happened. I enjoyed it from that point onward. ( )

I love Texas, but she drives her people crazy. I've wondered whether it's the heat, or the money, or maybe both. A republic of outlaws loosely allied with the United States, Texas survives, and survives quite well, by breaking the rules.
--Peter Gent, North Dallas Forty, 1973
For Florence Mae Drecksage Olsen
First words
In his canary-yellow house on shady Twenty-seventh Street in The Heights, a worn-out section of Houston, Fred Hilligiest got up long before the sun.
The imagination will not down. If it is not a dance, a song, it becomes an outcry, a protest. If it is not flamboyance it becomes deformity; if it is not art, it becomes crime. ---William Carlos Williams- The Great American Novel, 1923
