Excellent book, very detail oriented. I grew up in Rancho Cordova and South Sacramento during the time of his rampage and she nails the feeling we all had of fear. Her red book is the same but even more detailed. Love them both!!
I grew up in Sacramento near where Anne Penn did and at the same time so this book really had my interest from the beginning. As I read through it, I could picture the places she described in my mind. I started my law enforcement career (going on 35 years) during this time as well. While I did not work this (EAR) or any of the related cases, I always had an interest in them. Like the author, the LEOs working these cases do so with great passion. I'm not going to criticize any of my brother or sister officers for the way they handled things, but unfortunately there were mistakes made early on and I think Anne pointed them out appropriately and without bashing the LEOs. Her passion is evident throughout the book in the detail she goes into and by the amount and way she research it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who grew up in any of the areas where these crimes occurred, with interest in these cases or serial killers in general. The detail of the crimes, victims and their loved ones left behind makes this book an excellent read and keeps your interest throughout.
