Summary:
Citing cases from the 1906 case of Chester Gillette to the present-day case of Scott Peterson, journalist Strong argues that a growing number of men, the "eraser killers, " murder their wives or girlfriends with premeditation and dispose of the body in an attempt to make both the crime and the victim disappear.
