James Wood looked quite ordinary. A master at
appearing normal, he wouldn't be noticed in a crowd. In the fall of 1992, when
the friendly community of Pocatello, Idaho opened it arms to Wood, little did
residents realize the soft-spoken stranger in town was a serial killer.
The truth came to light only after the
abduction and murder of Jeralee Underwood, the eleven-year-old daughter of a
devout Morman family. The entire region was shocked and outraged.
Now, in Eye of the Beast, author Terry
Adams teams with lead investigator Scott Shaw and forensic psychologist Mary
Brooks-Mueller to take us behind the headlines, into the heart of the Idaho
investigation. Why had Wood gotten away with other murders for two decade? What
made him so unlike other sexual psychopaths?
After years of research, the authors skillfully
re-create a story of how and why Wood killed, how a community coped with
tragedy, and how law enforcement captured James Wood -- one of the nation's most
unusual serial killers

disturbing interview with a man utterly without conscience, driven strictly by vengeance
