A Serial Killer in Nazi Berlin: The Chilling True Story of the S-Bahn Murderer by Scott Andrew Selby.

“Scott Selby’s recreation of the hunt for the wartime S-Bahn Murderer meticulously recreates one of the most horrific but fascinating murder investigations of twentieth century Germany.”—Paul French, Midnight in Peking: How the Murder of a Young Englishwoman Haunted the Last Days of Old China

“[A] gripping true account of a World War II serial killer. Onboard an electrified speeding train in Nazi Berlin, Scott Andrew Selby reveals an equally electrifying story of the railroad employee who could not stop murdering.”—Robert Graysmith, author of Zodiac, AutoFocus and Black Fire

“[A] darkly fascinating book... It's a story of determined detective work by a police officer with a surprisingly clear sense of justice given his surroundings. And it's a story of the ways that killers rise and fall on multiple levels, one that still resonates decades later.”—Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz-Age New York

“In a chilling, fast-paced narrative full of shocking twists, this book reveals the true story of Paul Ogorzov, the S-Bahn Killer, and his crimes in compelling detail. This is a unique and riveting historical account of a lone predator hunting in the shadows of World War II Berlin.”—Julian Rubinstein, author of Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts

“Scott Selby's true story is both intriguing and exciting - and made even more compelling because as the investigators search for a killer they are urged on by government officials committed to an official policy of mass murder.”—Howard Blum, bestselling author of American Lightning and The Floor of Heaven
