Love the author but this was tough to stick to at times. Kind of felt like this was the notes from which to write the book, not the book itself.

Twenty-five years after Richard Ramirez left 13 dead, paralysing the city of Los Angeles, his name is still synonymous with fear, torture, and sadistic murder. Philip Carlo's US best seller The Night Stalker, based on three years of meticulous research and extensive interviews with Ramirez, reveals the killer and his horrifying crimes to be even more chilling than anyone could have imagined.

It's an amazing story, great details here and the first half was great.
Carlo is a fantastic researcher but not a great author. Much like many of his books, he repeats himself over and over and it gets annoying.
The second half (10hrs) or this book it basically court transcripts and could have been cut by about 9 hours.
Also the voices the narrator does are unnecessary and grating, especially the female ones.
I don't regret getting it but it's a hard slog.
