Unmasked : my life solving America's cold cases

Holes, Paul (author.). Fisher, Robin Gaby, (author.).


Summary: How does a cold-case investigator detach from the horrors of his work? Part of it is an innate capacity to compartmentalize; the rest is experience and exposure. Holes has had plenty of both, but always takes pride in the fact that he can keep his locked up to get the job done. Here he looks back over his long career: catching some of the most notorious killers of the twenty-first century and bringing justice and closure for their victims and families. But along the way he has sacrificed relationships, joy-- even fatherhood-- because the pursuit of evil always came first. -- adapted from jacket
