This is not a book about the Zodiac Killer. Hundreds of books, articles, movies, television shows and much more have made the story and the Zodiac KIller almost a household name. It is a tale that has been told and retold, written and rewritten, thousands of times. This is new. This is something you have never seen before, even if you follow this subject. While the book must cover the basics of the case and introduce new readers to just exactly what a "Zodiac Killer" is, what he did, and the many letters he had written, the bulk of the book is dedicated to something completely new that most have never seen.

Zodiac mailed a map to he newspapers and police with one of the many letters he had written. This map was completely blank besides a compass being drawn over a place called Mt. Diablo. Zodiac said this map could be used to find an alleged "string of bombs" he had planted beside a road somewhere waiting for a school bus to go by. He also said this map somehow involved something called "radians". But no one knew how to use a blank map to find marked locations. For over half a century this remained a mystery, until now. A bomb schematic sent by the mad man and puzzle maker turned out to be one of the keys for this map, one of a couple. An overlay key. Using a method that many examples can found in history and is also taught in the military, he created a map overlay disguised as a bomb drawing.

When two points on this drawing are aligned with two points on the map, one being the compass, marked locations can be revealed as well as a section of highway marked with a string of bombs. Whether these bombs were real or not is beside the point (but you would think that the world would want an answer to that question), what the real mystery and importance of these places are is another question entirely.

Zodiac was most famous for the codes he created to taunt the police and not the murders he committed. Only one of his codes was ever said to have been solved while several others remain a mystery to this very day. His most famous unsolved code is called the '340 code'' for the 340 symbols that comprise the code in a grid-like formation. This book will also delve into the possibility that this code is also an overlay key for this map and it used to find the long sought after "radians" that Zodiac said we would find. Clues and evidence from his letters go to support this very idea. That is for you to decide. Don't believe what I tell you. Believe what I show you. Believe your own eyes. This may be the key that someone uses to solve the mystery once and for all.

One thing that this overlay marked that is very interesting, was the site of an unsolved murder from 1969. While out playing one day, nine-year-old Susan Nason went missing. Around the time these codes were sent, her body was found at the Crystal Spring Lake and golf course. The lake was dragged for more evidence.

Over a decade later, in the 1980s after being accused of the murder of his daughter, DNA evidence proved the innocence of Susan's father for the crime. Leaving the case forever unsolved. This book will show a link between this murder and the Zodiac killer. It was the only other unsolved murder during the 1969 killing spree of the Zodiac killer. Besides all of the Zodiac murders having some relation to parks, lakes, and golf courses. The other link between his sadistic slayings and the bludgeoning of this child is a hidden message from the Zodiac and the place the crime took place being marked on the cryptic map.

Who knows what other secrets it may hold?

About the Author

R. S. Clemons was born in a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The son of an attorney and an author, he went to a little school called Caney Elementary when he was a child where he learned some of the things that helped him with solving this puzzle.

There is more about him than could ever put into this small section. He likes to say that he just an average guy and that there is nothing really special about him. He is a very humble, kind, and courteous person. He has had some interesting life experiences and could tell you some really good stories. R.S. has not had a boring and sheltered life. At least up until now. It is said that he has calmed down from the wilder days of his youth. He said once, “I have been some places, seen some things, you know the rest of the song.” R.S. often likes to remind peoples that all you have in life are your experiences. He likes to make the most of his time and tries to not commit the sin of turning his back on it. Though this challenge often proves to be futile, still, he makes the best effort he can. Often reminding himself that you only get one ticket on this ride. When you are lying on your death bed, you will realize that if you don’t already. Time is the most valuable thing you have. Don’t spend it on things and people that are not worth it. Don’t be afraid to take risks. You never know when they might pay off. These are the ideas that he lives by.

He says that he regrets the things he didn’t do, the chances that he didn’t take, more than the things he did. Even when they landed him in trouble, they made him who he is and brought him to where he is at. That is one of the reasons for his writing this book. Knowing the kind of attention, it would draw to him, he said he didn’t want to regret not doing it and not sharing what he found with the world. He didn’t want to wonder what would have happened if he only had instead of not sharing it. He plans to do more books on this subject in the future as well as to branch out into other areas and genres.

He often quotes the aphorism, "small strokes fell great oaks." Another he often likes to quote was written by one of his many favorite authors and influences (besides Hunter S. Thompson), “Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.” – Mark Twain. What the future of this burgeoning author may bring, only time will tell, but you can expect many great and extraordinary things as experience follow
