The "Gaffney Strangler" who taunted police with the message, "Stop me or I will kill again." The schoolteacher-turned-rapist who eluded authorities for more than thirty years. And of course, the horrifying and tragic life of South Carolina's most successful serial killer, Pee Wee Gaskins. All are revealed here in chilling detail.

Author
Mark R. Jones is a ninth-generation native of South Carolina. He is a licensed City of Charleston tour guide, conducting carriage tours for Palmetto Carriage and daytime history and nighttime ghost tours for Bulldog Walking Tours. Mark is also one of a select group of guides who conducts the Dark Side of Charleston Tour for Bulldog: the tour that inspired the writing of the Wicked Charleston books. The Dark Side is the only non-ghost nighttime tour in Charleston. On average, Mark conducts twenty tours a week, about one thousand per year. He is the author of Wicked Charleston: The Dark Side of the Holy City, which covers the history of the founding of Charles Towne from a unique perspective: drinking, prostitution and murder. The Charleston Post and Courier called the book "a solid (if tipsy) foundation for the revelry to come." Wicked Charleston, Volume 2 is the continuation of that revelry. In his free time, Mark is always on the prowl for new salacious stories about Charleston.
