The Killer Within
Philip Carlo

Softcover; 287 pages w/ colour photos. 23.5cmx15.5cm (tp/b).

In the Company of Monsters

As research for his acclaimed true-crime books, Philip Carlo interviewed at length some of the most infamous criminals and killers of our times, in prison and on death row.

His books reveal the truth about notorious characters such as LA serial killer Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker), Mafia contract killer Richard Kuklinski (The Ice Man) and crime-family boss Anthony Casso (Gaspipe), and, working closely with the DEA, Carlo also wrote the definitive account of Bonanno Mafia family assassin Tommy 'Karate' Pitera (The Butcher).

Carlo's investigative achievements were remarkable, but what wasn't known to his readers was that, while working on 'The Ice Man', he learnt he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a terminal illness that caused all of the muscles in his body to atrophy over time. After years of penetrating the minds of killers, Carlo was himself being pursued by the grim reaper. But rather than lying down, Carlo continued to work right up until his death in 2010.

In 'The Killer Within', Carlo documents his experiences with ALS and explains how he continued working as a true-crime author.
