  1. I was the prosecutor in the Kitty Genovese . My book, “Twisted Confessions” was just released. It is the true story behind the Kitty Genovese and Barbara Kralik murder trials. Kitty’s killer, Winston Moseley, a serial rapist graduating into serial murder, confessed to killing Kitty and Barbara Kralik, a murder for which I was prosecuting another. In Twisted Confessions, I detail the murders, my investigations, including questioning of Kitty’s neighbors, the three trials that followed in the almost impossible task of revealing and convicting the actual killer. Please feel free to contact me via email for further information.
