--PEOPLE Magazine

Absorbing...detailed, Carlo allows the killer's grotesque acts to be squarely in view.
--The Los Angeles Times Book Review

Filled with never-known-before details. [Carlo] did his homework and wrote a very compelling true crime tale.

Exceptionally well-told.
--Publishers Weekly

The chilling inside perspective of a serial killer.
--Library Journal

Carlo has given us an astonishing portrait of a killer not seen since In Cold Blood.
--NY Daily News

We've all read novelists and true crime writers who try to put you inside-the-mind-of-the-serial-killer, but I can't remember one that succeeded with the physical and psychological intimacy of this collaboration between the writer and the killer himself.
--New York Press

This is the definitive book on America's most feared serial killer. The writing is so intimate, you actually feel like a voyeur reading this book. A must read that will return you to the time when no one could sleep in Los Angeles because of the Stalker. A real page turner.
--Tony Valdez, Fox TV Los Angeles

The best book on murder I've ever read.
--Captain Ken Roe, NYPD Homicide

A true crime masterpiece. Carlo vividly brings to life one of this century's most brutal kinds of predator. A must read!
--Steve Elshoff, Producer, American Justice
