Anyone You Want Me to Be: A True Story of Sex and Death on the Internet by John Douglas -- Olathe, Kansas, a balding, pudgy father of 4 sits in prison convicted on 3 counts of homicide -- 2 capital murder -- and suspected in at least 5 other disappearances. During the late 1990s, Robinson exploited the Internet's world of sadomasochism. By haunting chat rooms, he pinpointed vulnerable women looking for romance and stalked them on-line, convincing them of his maturity, sensitivity, and financial stability. He seemed like the perfect man. He enticed women with offers of a solid relationship and a lucrative job, persuading them to move to his hometown. Once in Kansas, the women disappeared. After a dramatic trial and days of intense jury deliberation, Robinson faces the death penalty. Most alarming is how he selected and lured his victims and how willingly they responded. Robinson expanded the hunting ground, techniques, and technology of the sexual predator. Law enforcement officers, prosecutors reveal what can go wrong in a world where relationships are devoid of physical contact, showing how easily we can be drawn into the underground of cybercrime. As technology proliferates, so do opportunities for criminals like Robinson. A cautionary tale about strangers and false intimacy.
