The new book “Diary of a Predator” details the crimes and motives of serial rapist Brent J. Brents. He preyed on women and children until his arrest in Denver in 2005. This isn’t just a true crime book. It’s also a memoir. Author Amy Herdy covered the Brents case as the criminal justice reporter for The Denver Post. In this book, she also writes about what it takes -- and takes out of you -- to cover such a dark story day in and day out.
