The book sounded like a documentary, listing fact after fact. It was hard to follow. I would have enjoyed a bit more story. You may like it but it wasn't my cup of tea. At least the narrator Paul Michael was good and entertaining to listen to.

The comparisons to "the devil white city," are really only apt for the context of the story. I'm afraid i also missed the emotion, fear and real horror of what this man did to people already in dire straits. Interesting sure. But not all that engaging as a story - had much more of the documentary feel without the real draw. It wasn't terrible, but not up to par for some reason.

Given this one only three stars, difficult to get into at first, the reader is not exactly inspiring me to go on listening and after the third attempt to listen again from the beginning, I've actually given up and just picked up a copy in print from the library to finish the book by reading it for myself.
Story line wise, its not a Dean Koontz although you could be forgiven by thinking it is similarly written, it has got everything from murders, mystery, suspense, both thrilling and chilling moments along with twists and turns, bit over descriptive in places but otherwise a good read, the author has done well not skipping or jumping from crime to crime but woven them into a neat fabric as the basis of the book with lots of extensions to the under lying plot beautifully worked in on top. Lots of levels to this one.
