He was an online predator—hiding in plain sight…

In a luxury Boston hotel on April 14, 2009, police discovered the body of a beautiful young woman—her head battered, a bullet through her heart. Within hours, the story exploded, making headlines across the nation. The victim, a masseuse named Julissa Brisman, had advertised her erotic services on popular classified ads Web site Craigslist. A twenty-two-year-old medical student named Philip Markoff was her last-known client…

Why was a soon-to-be-married man prowling the Internet for sex?

What events led up to Markoffs meeting with Brisman?

What happened on the night of their fateful—and fatal—date?

The Boston Police Homicide Unit followed a digital trail that led to Markoff's home, where investigators found a gun, prepaid cell phones, plastic handcuffs, and other evidence linking Markoff to Brisman. They also uncovered a stash of  womens undergarments, raising even more questions about their suspect: How many other women did Markoff meet before Brisman? And what happened to them? This is the true story of one womans DATE WITH DEATH.

* With 8 pages of startling photographs *
