    Forget it.

    As a retired big city homicide investigator who worked as the OIC on three serial killer investigations in which the perpetrators were apprehended, including John Eric Armstrong mentioned in the first chapter, the title intrigued me enough to purchase it. I appreciate and applaud the remarkable comeback from his injuries, however, I must confess corresponding with serial killers would not be the route I would let my TBI son to indulge in. First off, they are notorious liars. I think any reader familiar with this subject would recognize from the first letters how self-absorbing and evil they really are. And the description of their sexcapades? Come on, obviously false and maybe titillating to a TBI victim, but certainly not to any rational person let alone parents who would keep there child involved in such obvious garbage. How could his mother allow such descriptions of sex and death continue to inundate this kid, much less sit around the kitchen table for all to hear with no one objecting? Please..... Also, who dreamed up "Psycho Sailor" for John Armstrong? Certainly no one here in Detroit. And just one mention of him and nothing later on in the book? My feeling is that this was dangerous territory for a TBI victim but hopefully he will move on to more rewarding adventures in life. As for the book, poorly written. Sorry I spent my money.

    A book that can trigger every emotion.

    What an amazing true story. Such an emotional roller coaster. It's a book you must get. You have to read it to believe it. It's one of those stories that if someone told you, you wouldn't believe it.

    Reads like a horror novel, but horribly true and very unsettling

    Reads like a horror novel, but horribly true and very unsettling. Although not a way I would choose to deal with the issue with my child, the full circle and ending is justifiable. Intense insight into a killers' mind. Truely, not a place I care to go again. Read - but with caution!

    boring

    Not anything like I expected. I finished the book in hopes of finding something interesting but that never happened.
