Rex Miller, born Rex Miller Spangberg, wrote novels detailing the investigations of Jack Eichord, a fictional homicide detective who specialized in tracking down serial killers. Slob, the first novel of the series, introduced Daniel Bunkowski, a half-ton, killing-machine serial killer. For this novel Rex miller was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel. Other books in the series include Frenzy, Slice, Savant, and Stone Shadow.
