In 1978, Cheryl Bradshaw was a contestant on the popular TV matchmaking show, ‘The Dating Game’. From a lineup of eligible bachelors, she selected the handsome daredevil photographer, Rodney Alcala.

As the charmed audience watched the couple embrace, a chilling truth lurked behind the camera lens. Rodney Alcala was a serial killer in the midst of a chilling rampage. Hiding in plain sight.

Alcala lured in his victims by offering them the chance to be a part of his professional photography portfolio, with the promise of launching their modelling careers. But the 1,020 photographs, later found in a secret storage locker by the police, revealed a devastating ulterior motive.

Smile is a chilling account of Rodney Alcala, one of the most prolific serial killers in American history. Ryan Green gives a suspenseful narrative that draws the reader into the real-life horror experienced by the victims with all the elements of a captivating thriller.

"As a true crime addict, I love reading Ryan Green’s novels because of his unique style of writing. This book, Seeking Hearts did not disappoint. Straight up, I was heavily invested in this book and the main character Henri Landru."

"Enjoyed SeekingHearts- so much manipulation, so much deceit and deception… it is hard to believe Henri got away with it all for so long, but his scheming was perfect."
