Book Title: Rampage along Route 66
Bertram Greenberg was a one-man tsunami surging across the high desert of Northern Arizona and crashing to an abrupt end in the badlands of New Mexico. He raped and murdered a 13-year-old schoolgirl in the shadow of the Hollywood sign near Los Angeles’ Griffith Park Observatory and then escaped along Route 66. He took out everyone who got in his way, including two brave Arizona Highway Patrolmen and a good Samaritan couple who he shot near an abandoned Gallup, New Mexico coal mine. The rampage would end with an enthralling police chase in the lava fields near Grants, New Mexico. His chosen escape path, Route 66, is a sentimental marker for many Americans, filled with memories of family road trips, neon lights, cozy motels, curio shops, and mountainous views of the Old West. Rampage along Route 66 converges two of America’s favorites pastimes. . . nostalgia and crime.
