From the late ’50s through the ’70s, New York tabloids fed on the lurid and bizarre tale of lawyer/stalker Burt Pugash and his obsession with Linda Riss, a young working-class woman whose life was forever changed by a shocking act of violence. Noted publicist and documentarian Dan Klores tells this morbidly fascinating story with its many twists and surprises. Featuring interviews with Pugach, Riss and veteran New York journalists.
