I really enjoyed Dr. Starr's book and the cases he presents, especially the Boston Strangler case. However the main thing that I did not like about the book is that he would use these large words that I didn't know what they meant and I read a lot. Granted I could have looked them up but I feel that this not only wastes my energies and takes away from the flow of the book if I have to stop and look up a word. He also uses Latin words that he doesn't define, expecting the readers to know what they mean and I would take a hazard to guess that most wouldn't.
