BOSTON (AP) — A new book about a man accused of killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist includes an account by a Las Vegas woman allegedly robbed at gunpoint by him.

"Seven Days of Rage: The Deadly Crime Spree of the Craigslist Killer," was written about Philip Markoff by Boston Globe reporter Maria Cramer and Paul LaRosa, a producer for the CBS newsmagazine "48 Hours."

Trisha Leffler spoke in the book and a Sept. 19 "48 Hours Mystery" broadcast about her encounter at a Boston hotel with a man who responded to an ad she posted in the erotic-services section of Craigslist.

Leffler says the man tied up her up in her room, robbed her and took two pairs of her underwear.

Markoff has pleaded not guilty to killing Julissa Brisman of New York at another Boston hotel.
