In this disturbing true crime novel, successful businessman Michael Thornton leaves his family and business behind to run away with 16-year-old Janeen Snyder, who, indulging his most twisted and violent fantasies, helps him rape, torture and murder young girls. Original.

McMillan Palgrave

Janeen Snyder was only fourteen when she moved in with Michael Thornton, his wife, and teenage daughter. Michael was a successful entrepreneur and family man with eight beauty salons and a six-figure income-but two years later, he gave it all up to run away with Janeen. At last, on the road with his new young lover, Michael could indulge his darkest, wildest obsessions ...

They worked together as a team, luring girls into their twisted world of violence, and depravity. They drugged them, trained them, bound them, abused them. And for many years, Michael and Janeen were never caught...until police uncovered the body of a Las Vegas teen in a horse trailer. One by one, detectives found other victims-the lucky ones who survived, but had been too terrified to come forward. Soon, the world would learn just how sick and deranged these lovers really were.

Beauty Killers is a terrifying true story of sex, torture and murder--an illicit affair between two people who discovered a desire to kill...
