A Death In Belmont by Sebastian Junger

The Perfect Storm) hired a man to do work at their home. That man was Albert DeSalvo, who a few years later confessed to being the Boston Strangler. In A Death In Belmont, Junger investigates a murder that took place soon after DeSalvo was at his home. It bore many similarities to the Strangler's murders, but a black man and petty criminal named Roy Smith was convicted of the crime. Doubts about Smith's guilt have been raised in the past with perhaps racism part of the process that sent him to prison. There are those who have doubted DeSalvo's guilt despite his confession. Both men died in prison. Junger does his best to reconstruct the crime and answer what questions he can, although questions have already been raised about some of his information. A Death In Belmont has received mostly positive reviews with the Boston Herald saying, "No matter what the controversy, Junger's book is a riveting read."
