Every day, Lois Gibson is able to put power, control and a sense of justice back into the hands of violent crime victims of heinous rapes, kidnappings and murders. Gibson, herself the subject of a violent rape, uses her skills to coax from the memories of victims the most intimate details possible and, with the stroke of a pencil, reconstructs the faces of their tormentors. These eerily accurate reproductions have been directly responsible for the capture of over 700 vicious criminals for which her skills are noted in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Faces of Evil is Gibson’s riveting story of how she became the world’s most successful forensic artist, interwoven with her thirteen most suspense-filled cases. Gibson takes you with her inside the gritty atmosphere of forensics, putting you behind the scenes of terrifying enigma after enigma and into the victims’ mindset as they seek vindication. Follow the nine-year-old girl who saw and helps catch her mother’s killer, the pregnant blind woman who identifies and aids in the capture of her rapist and the hero cop whose deathbed description of his attacker leads police to his killer.
This is a fascinating true crime book like no other, mixing chilling crime scenes with the inspiring story of one woman’s passion for justice.
