I have never heard about The Last Call Killer before, not until I read "Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York" by Elon Green. It was tragic knowing that it took years to find this serial killer, not until a handful of gay men died. The combination of the AIDS epidemic and the gay stigma made it difficult to find the culprit, and it became a cold case for a while.

The author did an excellent job of researching the case with limited resources. I was utterly shocked when he mentioned in the epilogue that this murder case wasn't even on Wikipedia. I appreciated each victim's in-depth investigations so we could get to know the victims from another angle. It took him over three years to finish this true crime, and March 9 is the day where the true crime fans could get their hands on this book.

Thank you to Celadon Books and Elon Green for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
