The Texarkana Moonlight Murders: The Unsolved Case of the 1946 Phantom Killer based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
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.
