From the back: Alaska’s deadly dozen is a collection of twelve compelling true crime stories, notorious murder cases in the modern history of our northernmost state. It covers the gamut from a serial rapist who decides he has been making a mistake by letting his victims live and develops a hunters scheme to kill them, to a man who kills for a hobby and travels the nation in search of victims.
A champion of the natural world decides to destroy the trans-alaska oil pipeline and kill all his neighbors, and a young couple rob a nice looking suburban home before killing three occupants.
Alaska state trooper Jim Vaden tracks down a serial killer preying on a woman and bonnie Craig’s mother is so sure her daughter was murdered that she proves it and changes the way rape cases are investigated nationwide.
Joe Volger, a nationally known champion of Alaska’s seceding from the union, is murdered for his gold, state trooper sergeant Jim McCann leads the investigation into Volgers murder and does a masterful guns-drawn interview with the suspected killer.
