"I remember this story unfolding on the news. It must have been horrible for the families involved to lose their loved ones in such a senseless horrific way. I think Mr. Swinney wrote the book with sensitivity, and with devotion to relating the crimes' facts in a precise and logical way. Very well written, very well thought out. I couldn't put it down and finished it in a day. I had forgotten how the killer was caught and prosecuted. Another thing to mention is that Mr. Swinney also reminded us of how a terrible childhood can impact the personality later. Also, if you suspect something, say something. Well done!"- Robin Poe
"This was truly a mind opening amazing read. That any one person could be so horrible is beyond imagination except that this is a true story and it really happened. The book was a fact filled story that tried to explain Cleophus reasoning, logic and a warning as to what the public needs to be aware of and become involved when they see strange things going on around them." - Lynn Demsky
From the Author
For those of you who don't know, I'm currently in lawenforcement working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've been in law enforcementfor 17 years and I've worked as a Probation Officer, Corrections Officer, CourtInvestigator, Deputy Sheriff, Narcotics/Homicide detective, task force agent,and in an undercover capacity. I utilized the above experience to collect thedata, police reports, statements, and other pieces of information necessary towrite this true crime book. I make every effort to locate players involved inthe cases I write about, but sometimes many of them are deceased as the casesoccurred long ago. My main goal- which has always been the case- is to providethe victims of these serial killer cases a voice. They were people who did notdeserve the demise they unjustly met.

Prince suddenly found himself in San Diego, homeless, friendless and broke. He found a job but mainly supported himself by committing residential burglaries.
For some unknown reason, he began stalking young, attractive white women. He would break into their homes and murder them, sometimes raping them as he stabbed them. In addition to his recognizable pattern of wounds, he also left another signature. Then he stole jewelry and other items before fleeing the scene.
This book is also about the efforts of law enforcement to capture him and bring him to trial.
Highly recommended. Includes photos.
In the manner of carefully conducting a homicide investigation without contaminating evidence or jumping to hasty conclusions, the author presents all the pertinent details in a flawlessly written, well-constructed, and highly organized account. This account is not based on conjecture, but draws upon the author’s expertise as a homicide investigator and the extensive research he conducted to warrant my stamp of approval for authenticity.
This research roster includes law enforcement and court officials involved in the case; Charla M. Lewis, the killer’s live-in girlfriend; the killer’s relatives; roommates and neighbors of the murder victims; an FBI profiler—to cite a sample of primary sources. And, you don’t have to get to the acknowledgement page to find all this out because it’s an integral part of the true crime novel. C.L. Swinney will even tell you why he decided against interviewing Cleophus Prince Jr. at San Quentin.
Not a dry rendition by any means, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough because the author also interjected personal reactions that come with the territory of finding gruesomely murdered victims, the frustrations in following up on hit-or-miss leads, and making a long overdue arrest.
If you insist on ducking under the crime scene tape to nose around, this book is for you.
