For thirty-one years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named "BTK"—for "bind them, torture them, kill them"—he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader—a friendly neighbor . . . a devoted husband . . . a helpful Boy Scout dad . . . the respected president of his church. Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than twenty years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare told by the people who were there from the beginning. With newly released documents, evidence, and information—and with the full cooperation, for the very first time, of the Wichita Police Department’s BTK Task Force—the authors have put all the pieces of the grisly puzzle into place, thanks to their unparalleled access to the families of the killer and his victims.

10 meurtres en 17 ans de méfaits. Dennis Rader est un tueur en série américain surnommé le BTK Killer pour « Bind, Torture and Kill » soit « Attacher, Torturer et Tuer », son modus operandi. Il l'a lui-même reconnu, il aimait torturer des animaux étant petit, une caractéristique que l'on retrouve régulièrement chez les tueurs en série. Rader est responsable de la mort de 10 personnes (dont 2 enfants), ses « projets » comme il les appelait. Il attendait les victimes dans leur maison et les séquestrait avant de les étrangler. S'il ne les violait pas, il a affirmé lors de son procès avoir agi pour répondre à des pulsions sexuelles. Son dernier crime date de 1991, mais il ne fut arrêté qu'en 2005, après avoir recommencé à envoyer des lettres anonymes aux médias et à la police pour se vanter de « son œuvre ». Pourquoi ? Parce qu'il s'ennuyait... Étienne Jallieu obtient à grand peine l’autorisation d’aller l’interviewer dans sa prison : El Dorado Correctional Facility, au Kansas, où il est condamné à 10 peines de perpétuité consécutives. Leur entretien sera glaçant.

From 1974 to 1991, someone in the midwestern city of Wichita was leaving behind slain tortured bodies and anonymously proclaiming himself to police and reporters as "BTK" for "Bind, Torture, Kill." Then, for the next 14 years, BTK was silent. But when he began sending letters again, investigators would not miss their chance... Stunningly, police arrested Dennis Rader, the president of his church board and the father of two. As a shocked community watched, evidence began to pile up. Then Rader coldly described how he went about "his projects" as the families of his victims relived the horrific scenes this supposed pillar of the community had unleashed on their loved ones. From the tricks he used to enter his victims' homes to the puzzles he sent the media and the key role his own daughter may have played in his arrest, The BTK Murders is the definitive story of the BTK killer. He was, as one victim's family member called him, "a black hole inside the shell of a human being"—and the worst American serial killer since Ted Bundy.

En 1974, un tueur sème la terreur dans la paisible ville de Wichita au Kansas. Il sévit pendant trente ans où il assassine hommes, femmes et enfants par strangulation, pendaison, revolver ou à l'arme blanche. Il frappe à toute heure de la journée dans des quartiers résidentiels et il positionne ses victimes avec des mises en scène macabres. Friand de publicité, il se plaint lorsque les médias ne parlent plus de lui par des courriers, colis, poèmes ou envois qu'il adresse aux enquêteurs, journaux et chaînes de télévision qu'il signe des initiales B. T. K. (Bind, Torture and Kill pour ligoter, torturer et tuer) ou du pseudonyme « Bill Thomas Killman » . Après des années de silence, BTK se manifeste à nouveau en 2004 lorsque le quotidien local sort un dossier sur les trente années du premier crime du mystérieux assassin avec le massacre des quatre membres de la famille Otero. Piégé par les policiers, Dennis Rader est identifié et arrêté. Mari attentionné et bon père de famille, il se préparait à repasser à l'acte après treize années d'abstinence. Pour retracer cette enquête hors normes, Stéphane Bourgoin a eu accès aux interrogatoires de Dennis Rader, à ses courriers et aux selfies où BTK « revit » ses crimes, revêtu d'une perruque avec les vêtements et objets volés à ses victimes, afin d'alimenter ses fantasmes pendant les périodes de temps où il ne tue pas.
