The blog is an ever-evolving revelation of the details that inevitably get left out of books like "Butcher, Baker." There are so many fine-points of information in the Hansen case that putting them in the book got in the way of the story. But now, more than twenty years after "Butcher, Baker" was first published, we can look behind the curtain and reveal the richly detailed tapestry that led to Robert Hansen's eventual arrest and conviction for serial murder.

The wilds of Alaska have made the 49th state a heaven for hunters. But the oil boom of the '70s and '80s attracted a different kind of hunter. Hookers scenting money to be made from high-paid oil workers poured into the state. Anchorage became sin city.

Robert Hansen was a model middle-class husband and father. He was known as an avid hunter, with many trophies to show for his efforts. But wildlife was not his only quarry. For Hansen had an insatiable hunger for sex and for slaying, and Anchorage was his ideal hunting ground.

"Butcher, Baker" is the true-crime story of a serial killer who kidnapped, raped, and butchered up to thirty women -- and the terrifying wilderness trail of blood that led to his capture.
