Evening With the Author: Casey Sherman presents Helltown

Wednesday, July 27, 2022

This is the untold true story of the serial killer who terrorized Cape Cod and captivated a nation.

In the winter of 1969, the bodies of four young women were discovered in a cemetery near the tip of Cape Cod. In a place once known as Helltown, the victims had been shot, stabbed, dismembered, and mutilated. As investigators would soon learn, the perpetrator was a young, handsome, serial killer named Tony Costa. A bizarre former taxidermist with a split personality and penchant for violence, Costa ultimately mobilized friends in the hippie community for support and retribution and captivated literary icons and rivals Kurt Vonnegut and Norman Mailer. Costa embarked on a daring cat-and-mouse game with investigators, who—as the body count kept growing—were desperate to put an end to the killing season on Cape Cod.

This event will be held in person at the Library. To join us, please register online.

Casey Sherman is a local author, journalist, and screenwriter. Several of his books have been made into major motion pictures or are in development.
