Read 5 times. Last read September 26, 2010 to October 3, 2010.

Not the typical John Douglas book since he was not directly involved with the case from the start, this one is more of a research project on John's part than a first-hand account. The descriptions of him researching seem a bit contrived/fictionalized to me and it was a bit distracting.

However, that's not the important part of the book of course and the BTK story is quite gripping because of the sheer brutality and the fact that he basically won. Yes, we was caught and is locked up, but for 30 years he took lives and lived his as he pleased.
