Smiley Face Killer - Robert Yates
One by one, prostitutes in Spokane, Washington are being hunted down and discarded in remote wooded areas by a vicious serial killer. On each victim's head, police find his macabre calling card -- a plastic bag emblazoned with an ironic Smiley Face. Investigators soon realize they are dealing with the worst type of serial killer -- an Average Joe with no criminal background and with the extraordinary ability to blend in with the community. With few clues to work with -- and as the death toll continues to rise -- investigators turn to ballistics experts, space age fingerprinting technology, and to a Forensic Botanist who believes he can solve the crime by reading plants and trees.
