Library Journal Review

In 1967, student activist George Vizard was slain at his convenience store job in Austin, Texas. In 1974, Gladys Zani disappeared from her Tulsa, Oklahoma home and was never seen again. In 1979, real estate agent A.J. Dess was robbed and murdered while showing property to a married couple. Responsible for these varied killings was Robert J. Zani (son of Gladys Zani), a University of Texas graduate and apparent psychopath. The original investigation of the Vizard case was botched, but 14 years later Zani was convicted, thanks in part to cooperation by Zani's Mexican wife. While Zani and his motivations remain shadowy, Fero does provide a detailed, suspenseful account of the investigation that nailed Zani. For true crime collections.-- Gregor A.
