About the Author
MARK I. PINSKY is a veteran investigative journalist specializing in capital murder cases. A former staff writer for the Los Angeles Times and Orlando Sentinel, his work--which has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today--has followed topics ranging from the trial of serial killer Ted Bundy to the death of Trayvon Martin. His expertise has been showcased in multiple television appearances for Investigation Discovery, TruTV, and Amazon Prime. Pinsky is the author of Met Her on the Mountain: A Forty-Year Quest to Solve the Appalachian Cold-Case Murder of Nancy Morgan and four religious books: Amazing Gifts: Stories of Faith, Disability, and Inclusion; A Jew Among the Evangelicals; The Gospel According to The Simpsons; and The Gospel According to Disney.
Pinsky offers a gripping tour de force of crime journalism as he documents the fatal disintegration of a vulnerable young man under the spell of a malignant hustler.--Dr. Katherine Ramsland "author of How to Catch a Killer"
A captivating tale of madness, manipulation, and murder. I simply couldn't stop turning the pages.--Diane Fanning, crime writer and television commentator
Detailed and deeply compelling, Drifting Into Darkness radiates with a veteran investigative reporter's drive to "shake the tree" on his cross-country quest to uncover the criminal and cultural complexities of a family's dysfunction.--Joe Sharkey "author of Above Suspicion"
A lavishly detailed story of murder, madness, and treachery in Alabama and parts beyond. Mark Pinsky's prose is as sweetly beckoning as a Southern breeze.--Michael Cuneo "New York Times-acclaimed author of Almost Midnight and American Exorcism"
Descend and drift into madness in journalist Mark I. Pinsky's second work of true crime. To report on the Springford case, Pinsky personally had to comprehend his subject's sociopathy, immersing himself in a story of parricide. To lay down with sociopaths is to risk getting fleas, but that is the only way to get the story. Then came the sociopath I wasn't expecting.--Arthur Jay Harris "investigative true-crime author of The Unsolved Murder of Adam Walsh and Speed Kills"
Drifting Into Darkness is a fascinating look into true crime, superbly written. Anyone who cracks this book open will not want to put it down. Be prepared to miss work and social events!--Phil Chalmers, criminal profiler "host of the Where the Bodies are Buried podcast"
A riveting, well-researched book ideal for fans of true crime and general readers.-- "Library Journal"
This book would be a valuable addition to the true crime section of a library and is compulsive reading for readers with an interest in family dynamics, criminal psychology, coercive control, and mental illness.--Layla Farrar "The Southeastern Librarian"
