With the benefit of 50 years of hindsight, hundreds of vintage newspaper articles, thousands of police reports, and countless interviews, Terror in Ypsilanti: John Norman Collins Unmasked tells the stories of the other victims, recreates the infamous trial that took Collins off the streets, and details Collins's time spent in prison. Terror in Ypsilanti compiles an array of physical and circumstantial evidence drawing an unmistakable portrait of the sadistic murderer who slaughtered these innocent young women.

Disappointing for me
I was interested in this case particularly because I was in the area at the time and as a 15 year old idiot did hitch a ride from Ann Arbor to the summer school I was attending, despite the rumors of a killer on the loose. This account is full of facts, but is written in a style so pedestrian as to make the reader's mind float away from an amazingly dramatic subject. The title is particularly misleading - I learned nothing about Collins, whose motives and psyche remain a mystery, far from the "unmasking" promised. Sorry, wish I'd gotten as much from this as some others have.

The Michigan Murders
I preferred ‘The Michigan Murders’ by Edward Keyes.
In hopes that John Collins would indeed be “unmasked” in this book, I listened and waited. Some information at the end of the book regarding his life in prison was interesting and made clear that this woman hating killer needs to be locked up, until he perishes. But if you read one book on the subject, make it the one by Mr. Keyes.
