Below is a page-specific index of links to video and still photos of the people, places and events in Perfect Killer.

These links are keyed to specific words and phrases on specific pages of the hardcover edition.

This set of links is a work in progress. If there is a person, place or thing in Perfect Killer that you do not see here, email me and I'll do my best to post an image or a video.

For more photos, please check out the regional link menu at the top of the page.

A final word and an apology: there are a number of videos that require Windows Media Player. They are large files and may take more time than you have, especially if your "broadband" is as excruciatingly slow as mine is from SBC.
