Murder Most Foul No.110
British journalist Sandy Fawkes was eager for adventure when she landed in the US on a month-long assignment in November 1974. And she certainly got it. A feature writer for the Daily Express in London, her first foray into an Atlanta hotel bar brought her into contact with a tall, handsome stranger who introduced himself as Lester Daryl Golden. The forty-something writer and the enigmatic twenty-something hit off and spent the next few days – and nights – together. Alarm bells started to ring in Sandy’s head, though, and the liaison went no further. Which is just as well because, unknown to Sandy, by the time she had met the mysterious Mr. Golden, he had already killed up to 20 people in just four months – and more victims were to follow. Golden was, in fact, Paul John Knowles, a lifelong criminal on a murder spree across the US.
Out of work stripper Betty Jones was also looking for adventure when she met Swedish-born American GI deserter Karl Hulten in wartime London. He claimed he was a Chicago gangster – but any excitement in their short liaison faded when the pair were charged with the cold-blooded murder of a driver.
