June's Book: The Babysitter: My Summers with a Serial Killer by Liza Rodman and Jennifer Jordan.

Author, Liza Rodman has a unique tale of coming in contact with a serial killer that has haunted her for years. As a child, growing up in the 1960s, her mother would leave her in the care of a babysitter, a nice handyman who worked at the same hotel where her mother worked. His name was Tony Costa, a serial killer, whose crimes drew comparisons to Jack the Ripper by Kurt Vonnegut. 

This title is available through the library as a hardback, ebook, eAudiobook, and Large Print.
