End Game: A Serial Killers Search for Justice

Published by John A. Rorabacher
Roger Bainbridge grew up in a near pristine portion of coastal, west-central Florida, Hernando County, and became a prize-winning crime reporter in Chicago. For some of his contemporaries, however, Hernando County proved to be a very different place to grow up.
Roger’s life-long friend, attorney Ronny Sykes sets the stage for Roger to meet and interview confessed serial killer, Billy Weatherford. For Roger, the interviews represent a unique opportunity to interview a serial killer who has been silent about his crimes for more than a decade, while he awaits execution on death row. For Billy, the interviews provide an opportunity to reveal a criminal conspiracy that even he finds reprehensible. To accomplish this, he must reveal details about some of the murders he had committed that had gone undetected. For the police, the interviews could mean the resolution of numerous cold cases involving the disappearance of young women from the Tampa area
Billy’s macabre story forces Roger to face new realities about himself, his friends, and the hometown that he had always believed to be a sleepy Florida backwater. As Billy’s story unfolds, it becomes apparent, his successes and failures as a serial killer were abetted by the community that had nurtured him.
Roger finds support, camaraderie, and love within the family of Mark Barnkowsky, a Tampa Police Department detective. In the midst of the chaos surrounding Billy’s revelations, Roger discovers love with Mark’s widowed sister-in-law, Susan; and professional assistance with Mark's homemaker wife, Barbara, formerly a forensic psychologist.
Following Billy’s execution, Roger questions the efficacy of capital punishment, while, at the same time, a series of events begin to unfold that will shake the parochial society of Hernando County to its very foundations. When people in small towns comment that “nothing ever happens here,” simply do not believe them. In small towns many of the juiciest tales never make their way into the papers or are never discussed in polite company; and sometimes, you can be drawn into ongoing scenarios in some the most innocuous ways. Roger’s and Billy’s stories are such a tale.
