I wasn’t totally sure what to expect but I really enjoyed this true crime memoir. The author writes about his career and his fascination with cold cases. I found him to be a very interesting person and one I would like to hear more stories from. I liked that I had heard of a good number of the cases and that I hadn’t heard of some and all of them were very interesting. I also liked to hear about the evolution that DNA technology has taken and how it has helped us to be better investigators into crime. Paul Holes spends a lot of the book focused on the cold case he spent the most years on the Golden State Killer. I found his process to be very interesting, but I also liked that he included the toll his work took on himself, his marriages, and his relationships with his children. We need people passionate about finding the truth and keeping community safe, but we also need to help them care for themselves. I would definitely read another book by Paul Holes.
