New York Times bestselling author, Robert Graysmith, best known for his books on the Zodiac killer and Jack the Ripper, takes on the mystery of Janet Leigh's body double from Psycho. In 1960, Marli Renfro appeared as the body double in the famous shower scene. It wasn't until 1988 that she received her most notoriety when she was found to be brutally raped and murdered by a serial killer. But was she really? Graysmith, who has been obsessed with Renfro for the past forty years, attempts to portray a scenario where maybe she wasn't really the victim. This is a hard read as the author attempts to give us background material on the serial killer, Sonny Busch, while telling the story of Renfro. With no real direction and a lack of cohesiveness, it is difficult to maintain enthusiasm for what seemed to be an interesting premise.
