Product description

Product Description

They thought about their evil fantasy for months. Then wound up like clockwork toys ... they acted.

In April 1997, pretty, 22-year-old Jacine Gielinski stopped her car at a red light in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She had no idea that the two young men looking at her from the car next to hers would in that moment decide she would be their target for unspeakable horrors.

George Woldt and Lucas Salmon were an unlikely pair of best friends, much less killers. Woldt was a fast-talking, well-dressed ladies’ man who boasted of his sexual conquests. Salmon was deeply religious, and socially misfit, obsessed with losing his virginity.

Woldt was the leader, Salmon his willing follower, but neither had been in serious trouble with the law. However, inspired by the cult movie, A Clockwork Orange, with its dystopian violence, they fantasized for months what it would be like to abduct, rape, torture and murder a woman. Then, aroused by watching ultra-violent pornography, they decided to act upon their evil thoughts.

Revised and updated with a new afterword from the author, A CLOCKWORK MURDER recounts the steps that led to an unthinkable crime and its impact on a community, as well as the friends and especially the parents of an innocent young woman who paid with her life for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

From The True Crime Library Of New York Times Bestselling Author Steve Jackson

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling realization...this could happen to anyone. 29 March 2017
By Shelia D. In VA - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read many genre including true crime and this book literally gave me chills. This could happen to anyone. This young girl girl was loved and cherished by her family and friends. She was intelligent, kind, pretty and was doing absolutely nothing wrong when she was abducted. This is every parents worst nightmare. Grab a tissue because this chilling book will bring tears.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another senseless murder 17 April 2017
By KB Webster - Published on

Sometimes I truly hate defense attorneys and their star witnesses. The defense attorneys in this book stoop as low as any I've ever read about. Steve Jackson tells this heartbreaking story in great detail. And it is very heartbreaking. Totally senseless, as murder usually is. Jacine would have been a great asset to the world had she not had the bad misfortune to cross paths with these two sickos, who thought it might be fun to kidnap, rape, and murder a young woman. I would have fully supported the death penalty for both these guys. God bless Jacine's family. I truly hope that she and her mom, wherever they are, are there together.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably horrible story, but good, balanced writing. 15 April 2017
By D. L. F. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a good book that absolutely gave me the chills. I see the horrible results of violence in my work as a forensic anthropologist, but this story is one of the worst, most tragic cases of which I've ever heard. Jacine suffered horribly, and that had to affect her parents forever. We NEVER talk about closure in cases like this, because to many families there is no "closure." Steve Jackson did an admirable job of researching and writing about this case, and it's obvious that he was affected by it. It's not a good story - it's a horrible story, but the writing is good.
5.0 out of 5 stars Endless pain for those left behind 12 April 2017
By Kindle Custome JOAK - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is another in-depth book, fully researched by Steve Jackson. The cruelty shown to the victim certainly deserved the death penalty for both murderers. The pain and devastation the parents endured was unending, and I felt it as I read.

this book was great. I had never known a murder victim until recently but there is no death penalty in the state where it happened. Mr. Jackson did an excellent job detailing the entire trial proceedings. Very enlighting!
