Noted Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Alvin Poussaint said of the book: “This book is the most compelling indictment of child abuse I have ever read. When A Child Kills is an excellent book that I highly recommend.”

Dr. Ann Cohn Donnelly, Executive Director of Prevent Child Abuse America and now a professor at Northwestern University said of the book: “Ever wonder what could drive a child to kill a parent? When A Child Kills presents for the first time ever in brutally raw detailed fact exactly why.

Stalking Justice: The Dramatic True Story of the Detective Who First Used DNA Testing to Catch a Serial Killer

Stalking Justice book cover

Stalking Justice is a landmark book on DNA fingerprinting. Though DNA fingerprinting is now a well established forensic technique seen not only in the courtroom but on programs such as CSI, when Mr. Mones wrote this book, DNA fingerprinting was in its infancy. Not only is this a fascinating story of how DNA was first used to catch a serial rape-murderer but it is a compelling true-crime story. In fact bestselling author Patricia Cornwell based her first book Post Mortem on this true story.

Stalking Justice came out during the O.J. Simpson murder case and Mr. Mones was frequently called on by The Los Angeles Times, Court TV, and CBS national radio to give his opinion on the DNA matters related to the case. He also served as an on air consultant for NBC News and appeared regularly on the Today Show during the trial. The Learning Channel also did a half hour special on the story which features an interview with Paul Mones. In addition because the book also highlights a false confession (the wrong man was initially arrested and was freed through Detective Joe Horgas’s efforts and DNA) numerous books on false confessions and DNA testing have cited the book.
