Killing Women by Rod Sadler is The True Story of Serial Killer Don Miller's Reign of Terror. Don Miller appeared to everyone to be a devout Christian. A former youth pastor, he had not long graduated from the Michigan State University School of Criminal Justice and nobody would ever have guessed that beneath the quiet, unassuming exterior lay a cold-blooded serial killer. Arrested for attempting to murder a pair of teenagers in 1978, it didn’t take the police long to tie him to four other disappearances. He was offered a plea bargain that remains controversial to this day and he showed the police where the other women were buried. Having served 40 years for his crimes, Miller is set to be released. Rod Sadler takes a look at Miller’s crimes, the apparent justice, and his upcoming release.

Killing Women: The True Story of Serial Killer Don Miller’s Reign of Terror is a fascinating tale of murder and so-called justice. A well-written and clearly carefully researched book, you are drawn in right from the start as you follow the story of Miller’s crimes. You get to know the victims and everyone else involved with the case and you even get to read Miller’s words himself in letters written to Sadler from prison. Rod Sadler has a way with words, a way of drawing a reader in and transporting them to the scene and of taking them deep into the story. You will be left with questions at the end and perhaps the biggest one is whether Miller should be released next year or not. A good steady book, and if you like true crime then you will like this.
