Overview

Ted Bundy is the most darkly fascinating, and widely analyzed, serial killer of the past century, possibly ever. No sex criminal, from Jack the Ripper to Zodiac to the Green River Killer, inhabits the popular mind as does Bundy. Now, the two men who know Bundy’s criminal nature best – Dr. Robert Keppel and author Stephen Michaud – have teamed to write the definitive narrative of Bundy’s bloody career, as well as the inside story of how Keppel tracked the elusive killer for 15 years, from his first days as a rookie Seattle homicide investigator to a series of tense encounters within the Florida State Prison where Bundy, in a doomed attempt at forestalling his execution, finally gave up some of his Terrible Secrets.
The story of Keppel’s long struggle to identify the handsome, articulate onetime law student, and confront him with his crimes, is abundantly illustrated with photos, drawings and documents from the investigator’s personal file. The book’s dozens of pictures include a map of Bundy’s Issaquah, Washington, hillside body dump that Ted drew for Keppel at the prison. Also shown for the first time are handwritten notes from Bundy’s investigative file.
The authors also draw from Keppel’s extensive mail correspondence with Bundy.
The result is a riveting, close-up portrait of a “diabolical genius,” as a federal judge described Bundy, stripped of myths and misinformation and revealed - in his own words – for the archly-sly, murder-obsessed predator he became. There’s never been a book quite like Terrible Secrets.

    I like this book. Riverman jumped from Bundy to the Green River

    I like this book. Riverman jumped from Bundy to the Green River Killer, this has more to do with Bundy and has more information about Keppel, who hunted Bundy and got Bundy's confessions. The Only Living Witness written by Michaud was good but it did not have the insight about the investigation or the luxury of 30 years worth of additional insight in to Ted Bundy. As I am learning about Bundy after he was dead, this is a good book to have.
