In a Child's Name: The Legacy of a Mother's Murder

by Maas, Peter

Condition: very good, very good

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990. First Edition. First Printing. very good, very good. 378, illus. Tracing events from the Midwestern states of Indiana and Kentucky to the East Coast, the author of such major bestsellers as Serpico and King of the Gypsies has written a dramatic and terrifying book about a charming and successful psychopath and the woman who loved him--and whom he murdered. The custody battle over the couple's infant son makes this true story all the more tragic. In 1984 the hideously beaten body of a young woman--a wife and new mother--was discovered in a roadside ditch in a remote mountainous area of eastern Pennsylvania. She had apparently been sexually assaulted as well. She was Teresa Benigno Taylor, a beautiful Italian-American born in New York City, recently married to Kenneth Z. Taylor, a dentist from Indiana with a seemingly bright future.
