    The first half of this book is a confusing, overabundance of worthless information. It was tedious, and did not get into the manhunt and murders until half way through the book.I found it difficult to follow and boring.I would definitely not recommend this book to anyone. I am shocked that the author has been writing for a long time.Also, If it truly was a bestseller when it came out - I am baffled as to why!

    Excellent Book for those who seek in-depth, accurate information!

    Vulgar Favors (Marreen Orth) is without a doubt the most in-depth, accurate resource pertaining to spree killer and Versace slayer, Andrew Cunanan. Marreen Orth has excerted much effort into this book, and the result clearly shows. It appears as though she had been taking notes all along as the story first began to unfold back in April 1997. This book is a must read for those of you who enjoy non-fiction true crime. It's outstanding!

    Detailed and readable

    This was an interesting, compulsively readable account of Andrew Cunanan's life and the crimes he committed. I wasn't too familiar with this case before I read this book, and now I feel somewhat of an expert. Maureen Orth's book was incredibly well-researched and detailed while still being very interesting. I was blown away by all the mistakes made by all the different law enforcement agencies! Particularly Sergeant Tichich and the Minneapolis PD. The arrogance and blatant idiocy of some of these people stunned me! How many lives could have been saved had these officers acted in accordance with common sense??? Hopefully lessons have been learned...

    A world apart

    Readers are taken into a world that few of us knows.......a world that people live in which they are the seducer or the victim....a lifestyle of money, sex and superficialty
