In 1983, Paladin Press, a fringe publisher, released a book called Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors. The author, who went by the pen name Rex Feral, offered very specific tips for the aspiring contract killer— where to find employment, how much to charge...and how to get away with murder. Ten years later, Tiffani Horn’s mother, 8-year-old brother, and a close family friend were found murdered. The exhaustive investigation involved multi-state surveillance and wiretaps, but it wasn’t until detectives stumbled upon Hit Man that they suddenly had what they called a blueprint for the murders. Hosted by journalist Jasmyn Morris.

Great storytelling

To my surprise, smartly organized. Just the right amount of narrative and interviews and evidence. Documentary at its best

JUST TELL A STORY, WILL YOU??

I signed up to hear the story of an obscure book and the tragedy connected to it, not a sermon on why we need restrictions on the First Amendment. A note to all aspiring podcasters out there: JUST TELL THE STORY. Don’t moralize. Don’t skew your coverage toward the side you favor. Just tell us what happened and let people draw their own conclusions. We’re smart. We can make up our own minds without you telling us what to think.
