LaRosa applied the Page 69 Test to their new book, Seven Days of Rage: The Deadly Crime Spree of the Craigslist Killer, and reported the following:
It's always fascinating to me to turn to any page of a book I've written to see how it reads, if it will hold up, and, now that I've turned to Page 69 of Seven Days of Rage, I'm happy to see that I do believe a reader skimming this page would be inclined to read on or, hopefully, buy the book.Read an excerpt from Seven Days of Rage, and learn more about the book at Paul LaRosa's website and blog.
On Page 69, I'm describing the third attack of the Craigslist Killer and, as far as I know, I am the only journalist to have interviewed this victim whom I call Amber in the book. Even if you've read everything there is to read on the case, you have not read this, simply because it has not appeared anywhere else.
The third victim of the Craigslist Killer is a stripper from Las Vegas who was in Rhode Island working the strip club circuit and, in her spare time, making some money in her room giving private lap dancers that she advertised on Craigslist. This was her unlucky night because the Craigslist Killer decided to answer her ad and, within moments of entering her room, he had pulled a gun on her.
Here is her quote from Page 69: "I turned around and he pulled out a gun. His hand was shaking pretty bad. I was scared but I listened to what he said to do."
I think that should get any readers blood boiling for more. A stripper, a killer, a gun. What happens next? Read on, my friends.
