The rape and murder of British schoolgirl Caroline Dickinson in a youth hostel in France uncovered a cold-blooded killer with multiple victims around the world. Francisco Arce Montes was a twisted rejected loner with an addiction to young girls. In countries ranging from Europe to South America, he had managed to evade justice for more than a quarter of a century. It is now believed that Montes was responsible for more than two dozen killings - his victims were all women and the attacks were always sexually motivated.
In this shocking and fascinating book, acclaimed true crime author Wensley Clarkson uncovers the full story of this deeply disturbed sexual predator and killer. He reveals how Montes was banished from his home town, how his first attack on a young girl left to a consensual relationship and to her bearing his child, his first brushes with he law and how, ultimately, he managed to spread terror across the globe. Meticulously researched and based on over 100 hours of exclusive interviews - including with the killer's shamed family - this is the definitive account of the world's first global serial killers.
