Hit Man

A True Crime podcast featuring
 8 people rated this podcast
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.

The description of this alone was enough to get my interest, but I still had no idea what exactly I was getting in to. This case has so many twists and turns that at times it almost didn't feel real. Great investigative reporting. For fans of true crime this is worth a listen for sure.
I don't really remember how I stumbled onto this show. Likely it made it on the popular section of Apple's podcast the day I found it. There were a couple episodes uploaded at that time and I binged them immediately. I was really immersed in the story. How on earth could someone write a how to guide to murder! To hear where this investigation went took me on such an emotional roller coaster! Very well researched, well produced all around good work. Certainly recommend to those who like true crime.
Interesting enough. Crazy that a book like that was published, and the murders and court sessions that followed it. But it was more background to me, felt ok if I walked away quick and came back. Wasn't a nail-biter.
