“True crime” takes on a different meaning when you’re accused of inventing interviews with real-life serial killers.
Paul Harrison’s latest book, Mind Games, has been pulled from sale after doubts were publicly raised about his interactions with Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and other infamous criminals.
Harrison, the author of more than thirty books, worked in law enforcement for over three decades, lending credence to his claims — but FBI agents who worked in the same time and places as Harrison say they don’t remember him and that he was unlikely to have had interview access.
Urbane Publications said in a statement Friday that it was pulling the book immediately while it investigated the matter, and proceeds from sales thus far would be donated to charities that support crime victims.
