Photographer Charles Edgar Rathbun was trying to crack the big time, and so was Linda Sobek, a former Los Angeles Raiders cheerleader turned model. An assignment for Autoweek took them to an isolated location called El Mirage dry lake. In his unsettling account, Nerad details the story of an exquisite woman and her collision course with the man who killed her. The book dramatically traces teh last hours of Linda's life and the subsequent investigation. From the search for her body to the search for the truth, this is a journey into the psyche of a man who some called a troubled soul, and others a cunning sexual predator.
