Summary

From the author of the bestselling Torres and Messi, a revealing new biography of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. When a young Portuguese player with sublime abilities arrived at Manchester United in 2003, Alex Ferguson put the no. 7 shirt – once worn by Best, Cantona and Beckham – on his back without hesitation. The expectation was clear, and Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t disappoint. Ronaldo won the FIFA World Footballer of the Year in 2008, the first Premier League player ever to do so. Since his record-breaking £80m move to Real Madrid, his goal-scoring flair has continued and made his on-going rivalry with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi even more intense. Luca Caioli tells the inside story of this global superstar both on and off the pitch, unveiling the life of one of modern football’s great players as never before.

    Carol Bundy was looking for love. She’d been through three husbands, two boyfriends — and then she found Doug Clark. He was perfect. He was handsome, spoke French, and Doug was a sexual athlete.  
    He was everything Carol wanted. 
    In June 1980, Carol and Doug started killing prostitutes on Sunset Strip. 
    Sexual Killing: A Shocking True Crime Story follows the stone-cold serial killing of Carol Bundy and Doug Clark during the summer of 1980. 
    Carol was willing to do anything for Doug. She seduced an eleven-year-old neighbor into their bed, painted the decapitated head of one of their victims so Doug could have sex with it, and helped him dispose of headless bodies. 
    Oh, Doug loved it! Did he love Carol? Did it matter?  Carol was doing whatever Doug told her to do.  
    She was a nurse. Carol was all about saving lives, not taking lives. 
    Carol knew she was doing wrong. She was doing murder. Carol called the cops. They didn’t believe her. So, she went to her ex-boyfriends for help. One of them survived. One of them didn’t. 
    Carol just wanted love. How far would she go to keep the man of her dreams? What if she got as hooked on sex and killing as he was? Would Carol ever be able to stop?
