New York Times bestselling author Steve Jackson’s latest true crime book, SMOOTH TALKER, will be featured on the Investigation Discovery’s Epic Mysteries show on April 9th, 2016, at 9pm ET. SMOOTH TALKER is the story of serial rapist Roy Melanson, his depredations, and the intrepid police work that went into bringing him to justice. Check out this preview.
From The Preface of SMOOTH TALKER:
He’s just a fat old man rotting away in a Colorado prison.
Terrified that he’s going to die behind concrete walls, steel bars and concertina razor wire, he spends his days filing appeals and writs in a never-ending stream of bullshit and lies. But he’ll die in prison. If not that one, then another, or another; they’re lined up like graves in a cemetery waiting for him. And there’d probably be others if someone wanted to go through the effort of making him pay for all the death, despair and ruined lives he’s caused. Just an evil old monster waiting for final justice.
But back in the day he’d been a charmer with his blue eyes and that soft south-Texas drawl. Not particularly handsome and already losing his hair by his thirties, but boy could he spin a tale. The Good Samaritan who’d offer to help with a flat tire, or clear some brush, or fix an applicance. Or just tell a good yarn about the places he’d been, the things he’d done. A smooth-talking son of bitch … a real lady killer.
