I'm super glad I got the chance to read this book. As both a queer woman and a fan of true crime, I was shocked with how unfamiliar I was with this story. It seems obvious to say that America was unkind to gay men in the 80s, but it was still shocking to see some of the things recounted in this book. AIDs was in its full swing, and like that wasn't enough, law enforcement was unwilling to link these crimes together and acknowledge that there was yet another serious threat to queer men in their area. It was frustrating to read, but ultimately, that's what makes stories like this compelling to me and important to read. The author did a great job piecing together bits of the story and giving important players their time to shine throughout the book. This book really highlighted how the culture at the time played a role in the killings that happened.
