One of history's mysteries
My introduction to Doctor Petiot was when I found this book while wandering through Barnes and Noble. I found the book very interesting and a quick read. The author's research into the victims, while some times a bit dry, certainly added to the curiosity of Petiot's choices, particularly if one is attracted to the doctor's side of the story.Was this review helpful?

A friend told me he found the book dull and that it didn't provide much new information. However, he was well acquainted with this story. But for a newbie to this bit of history, I can recommend the book even with the not-entirely-engaging style. The mystery and thrist to know the end of the story overcame that for me. A brief search turned up no other book on Petiot, so certainly this fills a gap. There is plenty of info on the internet, which only tells the story briefly. So if you are familiar with Petiot or only want the surface story, this is not the book for you. If you haven't heard of Petiot and like true crime stories, while not an outstanding book, it's worth a read.
