Fred Rosen, a former columnist for the Arts & Leisure section of the New York Times, is an award-winning author of true crime and history books, including Gold!, Did They Really Do It?, and Lobster Boy. He can frequently be seen on the Investigation Discovery network's Evil Kin and Evil Twins TV series, where he is a regular on-air commentator.
"The one true crime masterpiece I have read . . . Rosen fully succeeds in opening up two realities, ignored by most writers, that are known to outsiders only through caricature, depicting them with an unflinchingly clear eye." -The Guardian
