Robert MacFarlaneLeake has spent years interviewing those involved with the Unterweger case and combing the millions of words that it generated, both juridical and journalistic. As a result, he is able to tweezer away the layers of Unterweger's deceptions. Most important, he seems to be impervious to Unterweger's charm. There is no evidence here of a fascinated respect for this vile man, only of a fascinated curiosity…John Leake has written the definitive book—dispassionate, superbly detailed—on Jack Unterweger. Of its subject, no more now needs saying, beyond the words with which Leake ends his story, citing the wife of the Vienna detective who spent years unraveling the case: "Thank God, he's dead."
