Read from July 22 to August 03, 2012

3.5 rounded up to four stars. This is not a book for the squeamish. The letters from the serial killers and the facts about their crimes are detailed and disturbing. When I mentioned to people I was listening to an interesting audiobook, I had to warn them not to judge it by its title, which frankly, sounds made up. But Pete Earley's book is rich in content (albeit graphic content) and he's clearly done his homework. I found this book particularly fascinating because of the inclusion of Arthur Shawcross, the Genesee River Killer. I didn't even know we had a serial killer right here in Rochester, N.Y.! And he kept referencing all of these parts of the area that I'm familiar with. Eerie! After a while though, all of the serial killer's stories, murders, and justifications ended up blending together and sounding the same. It's amazing what good work Tony and his family were able to accomplish consider they were collaborating and communicating with a bunch of sickos. Keep up the good work, Ciaglia Family!
