Overview

On a sweltering summer day in 1992, the body of Patricia Fonti was found in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Highland Park.

She had been stabbed more than 100 times.

The Zodiac Killer had struck again.

Renowned psychic medium Jackie Barrett is no stranger to visits from the dead. But when the spirit of Patricia Fonti comes to her twenty years after her death, Jackie finds herself caught in an unexpected battle for the restless, schizophrenic soul of a murder victim. Here is Jackie's first-person account of her connection with Patricia Fonti and her murderer, New York Zodiac Killer Heriberto “Eddie” Seda, whose early 1990s killing spree paralyzed the city with fear.

In exclusive letters, drawings and recorded telephone conversations from prison, Eddie divulges things to Jackie that have never been made public, including how he killed and why. Her astounding interviews with the man who calls himself “The Soul Collector” give rare insight into the recesses of a very dark mind.

Soon as I started reading this book the writing and storytelling was unlike anything I have read before, after only a few pages I had goose bumps and tears at the same time and couldn't read it fast enough, it was like a gourmet meal for the mind it leaves you wanting to turn the next page and you can't figure was is coming next. The clever way Jackie Barrett introduces and develops the characters in the book will keep you guessing and intrigued she has a great mix of New York attitude and compassion and blends them as only a great writer can.
