My Thoughts & Takeaways

CW for this book: everything, basically.

As soon as I heard about this book and how difficult it was to get my hands on it, I wanted to read it. How exciting when my husband’s co-worker happened to have a copy?

This book had shown up on a list of “the most disturbing books” or something like that along with the likes of House of Leaves and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

But, this one is true and written by the offender. And he doesn’t leave much out. Not for the faint of heart, but recommend to anyone who really really likes true crime or criminal psychology.

Sharing is caring!
