I was thrilled when I learned that a book about the Phantom Killer case was finally available. Upon reading this volume I found that while Michael Newton did extensive research on the case, he occasionally gets bogged down with certain minute details. A couple of other disappointments were Newton's failure to include photographs, and his insistence on inserting political correctness where it's not needed. I feel that I should also mention that when Newton was describing the 1976 feature film based on the case - "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" - his description of the movie was almost off as the movie's portrayal of the case. (FYI: Detective magazines carrying articles about the case take even more license with the facts than the movie.) Overall, I'll say that this book is worth having for now.Was this review helpful?
