I don't really understand the original review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found it very hard to put down! I've read up on this case quite a bit so I know a lot of the details. The true crime portion in the beginning was completely accurate with facts instead of just the authors assumption. I really enjoyed the second part of the book as well, the fictional power prose. I found it very interesting to read the true events & then the fictionalized account of what the author thought may have happened. It was wonderful! Anyone who has followed this case, either from the beginning or more recently as I have, needs to read this book! It is just that fantastic!

This is a screenplay of sorts, which is not at all what I was expecting. I was planning on using this as a source for mini-research paper for my college English class, but I don't think it would work.
It is a good read; entertaining for sure. But it's hard to separate facts from the writer's imagination. And being a screenplay, it is a little more challenging to read than a book with a more traditional format.

I am very interested in this topic and was disappointed when the book arrived with ridiculously small print. One is left wondering how many times an angel could write the Bible on the head of a pin. I literally am not able to read it. For perspective, I wear contacts and have had no trouble reading anything else. My optometrist consistently gives me high marks.The book does not appear to have been professionally published and it disappointing.

I have a question but I don't know how to do that. Is this book from the findings of Thw Vidocq Society? Because they are the ones that solves this case after 52 years. The murder room explains how they found he murderer but the ending was the ending of the book.
