It begins with the retired Cold Case Investigator, Paul Holes, cleaning out his office. As he places items inside this banker’s box he reflects on his marriages, kids, career, and cases.

He has worked on famous cases for example Golden State Killer, Zodiac, & Jaycee Dugard. He shares aspects of the crimes in detail, how he becomes obsessed and dedicated to finding the killer for the victims’ families.

His narrative is entertaining, it is like a song and dance, and captivating. This becomes helpful to the reader when he describes a disturbing crime, some were too gruesome to imagine.

The cases have effected him personally and he speaks in depth about it. I think this is true from other famous crime investigators. You need to find a balance.

This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in true crimes and for those who enjoy memoirs!
