A True Story of Innocence & Murder Without Conscience
By Detective Ray Pingitore and Paul Lonardo
Gripping and terrifying until the very last scene, this true crime chiller begins in the early morning hours. Amy Shute and Jason Burgeson are saying good-night to each other after a night out dancing with friends at a popular downtown club in Providence, Rhode Island. They were talking beside Burgeson's SUV when ten gaping with malicious intentions fell on them without their knowing; young men their own age who had been prowling the streets of Providence all night looking for victims to make some money off. They had fastened on Amy and Jason earlier in the evening, and now the young couple were alone in a desolate parking lot, making them prime targets. They forced Amy and Jason into the backseat of the vehicle and drove to a remote and inacessible area of a golf course, where the couple were ordered out of the vehicle and told to kneel down on the ground as the thugs scoured their belongings for anything of value.
"They saw my face," one of the men observed.
Thrill Killers is a brutal, relentless and often quite moving narrative in the vein of the most classic episode of Dick Wolf's Law and Order, a frightening In Cold Blood-esque story of innocence snuffed out on a whim and murderers who senselessly kill without conscience or remorse.
"A gripping examination of the wolf pack
"Effectively gives an identity to the murder
