In January 2001, Diane Alexis Whipple bled to death in the hallway of her ritzy Pacific Heights apartment building when she was mauled by two attack dogs imported from the Canary Islands. After the lethal attack, animal experts testified that the dogs could not have been stopped, explaining that they had entered a frenzy called the "Red Zone."Now, New York Times bestselling author Aphrodite Jones goes behind the scenes of this gruesome tale, revealing details of this bizarre and horrific case. Jones shows that this mauling was only one part of a frightening story involving obsession, bestiality, and illegal dog rings. The dogs belonged to Whipple's neighbors, lawyers Marjorie Knoller and Robert Noel, who had kept them for an inmate whom they had represented in court and later adopted as their son.Jones is a masterful investigator and writer who has pierced the heart of this macabre and tragic killing. Red Zone is a page-turning account that takes us deep into the relationship between man and animal.
