Overview

Strangler's Kill

John Annibel, 40, was the bad half of a set of twins. James stayed out of trouble. . .but John, with his hair-trigger temper and paranoia, was different. On Thanksgiving weekend, 1998, Debbie Sloan, 42, sat down next to a stranger in a bar. She wound up gasping her life away, slowly strangled to death by Annibel. He then dumped her nude body in a ravine in North California's secluded redwood forests. In September, 1999, thanks to the efforts of Mendocino County investigators, Annibel was convicted of Debbie Sloan's murder. But what of his other alleged crimes?

Wilderness Slayer

In 1976, 15-year-old Sherry Lynn Smith was last seen alive heading toward Annibel's car. In 1980, Annibel's live-in girlfriend Andrea LaDeRoute vanished--until her skull was discovered in 2002. Georgina Pacheco was found raped and strangled in 1988.

Trail Of Lies

When the sisters of Sherry Lynn Smith and Andrea LaDeRoute teamed up to uncover the truth behind why earlier investigations of Annibel's activities in Humboldt County failed, what they found was possibly a trail of lies and criminality that defied the wildest fiction. As layer upon layer of deception was stripped away, new questions would be raised: Why were so many people willing to protect this man--and would he ever be brought to justice?

About the Author

Robert Scott discovered that true-crime writing is incredibly interesting, as "You have to be part journalist, part detective and part analytical writer for the true crime market." Robert's books have detailed the lives of killers and victims, police detectives and FBI agents—from California to Iowa, from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. They've depicted stories from a murderous male/female team in the High Sierras to a psychopathic killer on the mean streets of Los Angeles. They've also told the stories of victims, from an exotic dancer, to a beautiful but naive college girl, to a loving and vulnerable ranch wife. "The lives of the victims, and the detectives who brought them justice, are vitally important in these stories," Robert said. "I absolutely believe in a comment related to me by an Assistant United States Attorney, 'To the living we owe respect, to the dead we owe the truth.'" Robert is currently working on true crime books set in Oregon and Northern California. Robert has been on many television shows on Discovery ID, A&E, E!, and Tru TV.
