“The hunt for the ‘Son of Sam’ captivated the world in the late 1970s, but the story behind one of America’s most notorious serial murderers is all but forgotten, until now. While the arrest and conviction of David Berkowitz brought the nightmare to an end for many New Yorkers, for journalist and Ultimate Evil author Maury Terry, the real mystery was just beginning.
