Will a serial killer soon walk the streets again?

Don Miller was quiet and reserved.  As a former youth pastor, he seemed a devout Christian.  No one would have ever suspected that the recent graduate of the Michigan State University School of Criminal Justice was a serial killer.

However, when Miller was arrested for the attempted murder of two teenagers in 1978, police quickly realized he was probably responsible for the disappearances of four women. Offered a still-controversial plea bargain, he led police to the bodies of the missing women.

Now, after forty years in prison, Miller has served his time and is due to be released into an unsuspecting population. In KILLING WOMEN, author Rod Sadler examines the crimes, the “justice” meted out, and the impending freedom of a man nationally renowned psychiatrist Dr. Frank Ochberg wrote:

“… is a member of a small, deadly, dangerous population: murderers who stalk, capture, torture and kill; murderers who derive sexual and narcissistic gratification from their predation; murderers who maintain a ‘mask of sanity’ appearing normal and harmless.”

About serial killer Don Miller....


"His persona is a disguise...the same disguise he used before, both to get closer to his to his victims and to deny culpability.  Miller's crimes identify him as a human predator, and there is no reliable basis to conclude he has changed."

   A Slayer Waits


When the bodies of Howard and Myra Herrick were discovered hidden in their barn on a cool fall evening in 1955, their neighbor suddenly realized the screams she had ignored two days before were the screams of the retired chicken farmer and his wife being viciously bludgeoned to death.

Thirteen months after the murders, their killer was captured and quickly returned to Michigan.  For the Herrick family, what should have been the end of a horrible nightmare was only the beginning.

"Loved it.  This is a great true crime book."

"Rod Sadler’s 'A Slayer Awaits' depicts a typical double-murder as an act of desperation. An escaped convict slays an unsuspecting mid-Michigan farm couple in cold blood before continuing his escape. Months later, the killer is re-captured and returned to a Michigan prison—thus beginning a long, painful saga of legal battle after battle. It’s a great and intriguing read."

"Another winner! "A Slayer Waits" is so interesting and well written."
