Fascinating and reads like a good action film without explosions and violence. The dark undertones of devoting a period of time to finding one of the world's most evil men spills into the lives of those who searh as well as the reader. This is not an easy read but I was compelled to read this book as I was 12 when he was found and heard my parents talk about it as well as saw reports on the media. This was a profound awakening for me as to the harm that one humnan being can do to others. Thoroughly written and worth my time and yours..

Laurie Ferris Great review, but this sounds like a creepy book- way too scary for the likes of me! I think I've given up on reading about this period, unless it's political stuff. It's too depressing ( and too much like what's still going on).

David Colton My life is so good that I have to read about the misery and despair of others that I don't feel too guilty for having the good luck and gratitude that I do..........I would rather read about the past than what is happening in there here and now.......stream Bill Maher and laugh your butt off about most recent events.....great listening.....
