Dan & Iris Henniman are a husband & wife writing team hired by a publisher to help a convicted serial killer write an account of his crimes. The killer, William Reach, has admitted to the murders of nineteen people, but there might have been more. Over manyweeks of interviews, Dan & Iris grow increasingly uncertain of the ethics of their work. Are they simply relating terrifying events, or are they helping readers consume rape, murder & mutilation as common products of our society? Are they helping to turn Reach into a celebrity? Is that, in fact, just what Reach wants? Lee Blessing's provocative piece, Down the Road' travels down a dark and frightening road into the mind of a serial killer.
