About the Author

Philip Carlo was born and raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. His research for The Night Stalker included spending over 100 hours with Richard Ramirez at San Quentin's Death Row. The photo above was taken on the day of Ramirez's wedding on Death Row. He also wrote the true-crime bestsellers The Ice Man, The Butcher, and Gaspipe.



Phil Carlo paints a disturbing portrait of cold-blooded killer Richard Ramirez. In the true crime tradition of In Cold Blood and The Executioner's Song, Carlo compelling tells the ghastly story from numerous points of view, including those of Ramirez and two ingenious sheriff's detectives who finally cracked the case.

We've all read novelists and true crime writers who try to put you inside-the-mind-of-the-serial-killer, but I can't remember one that succeeded with the physical and psychological intimacy of this collaboration between the writer and the killer himself.
--New York Press

This is the definitive book on America's most feared serial killer. The writing is so intimate, you actually feel like a voyeur reading this book. A must read that will return you to the time when no one could sleep in Los Angeles because of the Stalker. A real page turner.
--Tony Valdez, Fox TV Los Angeles The best book on murder I've ever read.
--Captain Ken Roe, NYPD Homicide A true crime masterpiece. Carlo vividly brings to life one of this century's most brutal kinds of predator. A must read!
