This book was fascinating. Yes, it wasn't the smoothest read but it was still interesting. A good look at the European "white tower" NPR types who went to bat for this convicted murderer and got him out of jail. He becomes the toast of the town. Schmoozing with the European NPR crowd and starting his new career as a serial killer. He actually was a "reporter" reporting on his own murders. You know the boys at Quantico will be analyzing this guy for a long, long, time. He then moves to L.A. For me this was even more fascinating because I grew up in L.A. at the time of the murders. I don't remember anything about it. Yet it was interesting to read where he stayed, where the bodies were found, and who he had relationships with. If I remember correctly he actually had a girlfriend he met in Hollywood and convinced her to move back to Europe with him. Unbelievable! Anyway, the research is top notch, the writing just ok, but subject was fascinating!
