This is the second Schechter book that I read and I liked it much better than Fatal: The Poisonous Life of a Female Serial Killer . However, I still find it a little weird that a nonfiction book has absolutely no sourcing...the historian/researcher in me just can't quite get passed that fact.
However, this book reads like fiction and it is clearly very well researched. I honestly did not know that Psycho was "based," quite loosely, on the Ed Gein murders.
Overall, a very enjoyable read.
