what was his secret
Answers 1Add Yours
Dick's secret is that he likes to rape young girls.......
“He was sorry he felt as he did about her, for his sexual interest in female children was a failing of which he was sincerely ashamed—a secret he’d not confessed to anyone and hoped no one suspected…because other people might not think it normal” (Page 201).Perry actually despises this about Dick. He wouldn't let Dick rape the young Clutter girl when they invaded their home.
