A young man kidnaps his own nephew and makes him his servant and sex slave. He abducts young boys, has his way with them, and, if they “know too much,” kills them. He forces his nephew to participate in his crimes and to consign these little victims, sometimes still living, to their graves. His father is afraid of his own son. His son mocks and abuses him, falsely accuses him of incest and child abuse-and still he supports his son. His mother loves her boy and will do anything to help him-even commit murder. The Gordon Stewart Northcott case-a part of which is fictionalized in the major new Clint Eastwood film CHANGELING, starring Angelina Jolie-is still, eight decades later, one of the most nightmarish in American criminal annals. This book-nearly two decades in the research and writing-tells the whole story for the first time. Disclaimer: It should be noted that the film CHANGELING is not based upon this book, nor this book upon it. Both are entirely separate works, and one had no influence upon the other´s creation.
