The Paradiso Files : Boston's Unknown Serial Killer
In this bold, unique true-crime narrative, former homicide prosecutor Timothy M. Burke makes his case against one Leonard Paradiso. Lenny "The Quahog" was convicted of assaulting Connie Porter in 1973 and paroled in 1978, but Burke believes that he is guilty of much more - that Paradiso is a serial killer who operated in the Boston area, maybe farther afield, for nearly fifteen years, assaulting many young women and responsible for the deaths of as many as seven. Burke takes the reader inside the minds of prosecutors, police investigators, and one very dangerous man who thought he had figured out how to rape and murder and get away with it. The Paradiso Files follows Burke's prosecution of Paradiso in the death of a young woman from East Boston named Marie Iannuzzi - the only victim to whose murder Paradiso has ever been officially connected - and offers possible resolution of homicide cases that have been unsolved for years. Of particular note, Burke presents corroborated evidence that Paradiso murdered Joan Webster, the Harvard graduate student who stepped off a plane at Logan Airport in 1981 never to be seen alive again, and whose disappearance was a major media story. Burke's gripping tale is an education and adventure in criminality and the pursuit of justice.
