really liked it

This was a pretty interesting read, especially the Jack The Ripper, Lizzie Borden, Lindbergh, Black Dahlia & JonBenet Ramsey cases. Some small parts dragged a little but the majority of the book was really interesting. I also want to say that I went into the Ramsey case in this book with the complete belief that Patsy Ramsey was the murderer, especially after reading lead Detective Steve Thomas's book before this one "JonBenet: Inside The Ramsey Murder Investigation". However, after reading John Douglas's take on the Ramsey case I'm now thinking that it is more likely that it was an outside job. It's strange how our beliefs can change by getting someone else's perspective on a topic, especially when that person presents you with rational facts and arguments. In any case, I would definitely recommend you read this book if you love true crime investigations, it was a great read!
