I always enjoyed true crime stories. I can’t believe any person could do what John Wayne Gacy did. Parts of this book made me sick. I think it is so graphic many listeners will need a strong stomach to get through the entire listen. I tried to feel sorry for this monster but I couldn’t. Even though I don’t believe in the death penily if ever there was one person that deserved death Gacey would be the one. He had to be mentally ill to Carry out these disgusting crimes. GREAT STORY WITH NO DETAIL LEFT OUT. If you haven’t listened to KILLER CLOWN use a credit. It was as great as STRANGER BESIDE ME and HELTER SKELTER. I lived in Chicago during John Wayne Gacy’s reign of terror and remember all the national news coverage that took place after he was apprehended.
Thanks for reading my review. Steve

I was SO-Ooo glad to see this come to audiobook! Having this definitive crime classic already in my personal library, it was nice to be lazy and have it read to me :) Squeal.
This is THE Gacy book to get if you can choose only one, or simply just want to avoid wading through the other trash thats out there. In fact, many movies and documentries that feature the Gacy case, often refer to THIS very book as the main source for their script/writing.
Hardcore Gacy crime readers who have NOT yet discovered this gem (if they exist), will glean many new tidbits and interesting factoids for sure. This book was written 3 years after JWG was convicted in 1980, by the man who not only personally conducted the investigative work uncovering all the murders....he was ALSO the Prosecutor at his trial. Now thats first hand information!
Obviously, yes it IS filled with graphic details...but how else can you tell the story of one man killing 32 boys and living with their rotting corpses right under his floor - and NOBODY knew? Wife(s), family, friends, etc coming and going all the time? Yeaaa.
Worth that credit! Dont let the REAL crime be you not getting this!
