Murder Book Podcast: Season Two
In this podcast, bestselling author Michael Connelly goes behind the scene to explore one of America’s most prolific serial killers: Sam Little. Sam Little roamed the country for five decades killing women at will. He stayed below law enforcement radar because of the victims he chose: women from the fringe—drug users and sex workers, victims society paid little attention to. But in 2012 he came up on Detective Mitzi Roberts’ radar and everything changed. The Los Angeles Police Department cold case investigator relentlessly hunted Little across the country before he was captured and brought to justice with the help of a group of equally fierce women that included a prosecutor, a writer and several women who survived brutal attacks from Little.
