As a true crime addict, I stumbled across this book and immediately recognized the authors name. I had just finished reading Michelle McNamara’s book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark and became so obsessed with the Golden State Killer case. Michelle McNamara worked with Paul Holes while she was writing an article and a book based on the GSK. Michelle McNamara passed away in her sleep while writing her book but Holes was the one that worked day and night for twenty seven years and finally found the Golden State Killer.

I was immediately captivated by his life story and fell in love with how he had written it so eloquently. He worked so many well known cases, such as; Laci Peterson and Jaycee Dugard. I felt the emotion he put into his book and couldn’t pull myself away.

I found it fascinating how he found the Golden State Killer through a family tree. I especially loved his detail on how much DNA 🧬 processing and testing had changed over the years and how it’s helped solve so many cold cases.
