This story was the one covered in the original Kojak series' pilot film, "The Marcus-Nelson Murders," which won the Emmy Award for Best TV movie in 1973. It's a great, life-changing film; and it's based primarily on this book.
For those interested in this case, this very detailed book is simply indispensable. And it has the advantage of being written in the moment--indeed, Whitmore's ordeal and incarceration lasted until about 1973, though this book was published in 1967, well after Robles was arrested and convicted.
This volume is a slice of history! Well-written and hard to put down.
