I found the story of John Wayne Gacy fascinating, since I haven't yet read his story in a book-length format. While this book was interesting, I would recommend reading a different account first, in order to learn more about Gacy as a person and murderer. This story is written from the perspective of Gacy's defense attorney, and the story too often ends up being about him, rather than the monster he defended. This book could have benefitted from additional editing, since he often uses conversational sentences, like "Isn't that weird", or, "what is wrong with this guy?".
