Captivating

I am only new to Audiobooks and I don't think this story would have the same impact via a book. I found myself sighing and groaning as the many disappointments were elaborated. It was so well compiled and informative. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Very good

It was probably the last chapter that was most interesting to me, hearing about his day to day life and from a few people who knew him.

Extra pieces to this extraordinary story

For those of you that are familiar with the Golden State Killer story already, this book provides insights into the investigation process, victim impact and a taste of who this person is. There is still an enormous amount of this story to unfold. It feels like it is just the beginning again.

It is not just the story that is compelling, we also see the importance of the introduction of DNA testing and matching and public DNA databases. This science has turned criminology around and this case is a profound testament to it.

This is essential listening for anyone who wants to understand and follow the arc of this incredible story and this despicable person.

it's short but a must listen!

Brilliant voicing by Jim Clemente. Paul Holes is an absolute gun, not letting this case go. One that will go down in the history books.

Bravo!

I’m in awe at the tenacity and strength of, not only the victims of this cockroach, but the team of investigators who have put their hearts and souls into ridding the public of a dangerous killer. This audiobook includes the voices of the victims and their families, a well as the voices of the the main actors in this true crime story. Well done.

Rank this with the best in true crime.

This was the most compelling book I have listened to in years. It's not like any other audio book.
Interwoven stories, research, interviews, from multiple points of view. If you're interested in true crime, detective work, profiling, sensitive accounts from victims and police investigators... you will be captivated. I can't really say enough about it. 6 hours flew by in a flash. And such a relief to have an ending like this one.

Audible Raises The Bar On True Crime Genre

There's not another true crime book like this. In fact, I'm not sure this is a book. It's a collection of interviews woven together to tell the story of capturing the Golden State killer. It's like a very well put together audio documentary. Instead of giving the single perspective of one author, the book gives many perspectives of people speaking in their own voices. From victims to police, the story goes behind the scenes in a way few books do.

Much respect for the Victims and the Families

Full Disclosure: I am one of the narrators of this project. But I have to say, being given the opportunity to work with Ret. Det. Paul Holes and the Survivor Sisters has been amazing and humbling. They are all true Heroes and Sheroes! The insights they provide and the courage they all displayed is epic.

Chapter 12

This was well done very informative but also sad and tragic as it should be because what that man did was horrid. GSK was, is a monster and thank God it seems (I believe) he has been captured after so long and will have what's coming to him. Out of all the chapters, the chapter that stood at the most for me was chapter 12. Sitting in my truck, listening at a local grocery store just before I was ready to go in and shop. Couldn't go in until I finished the very and had wiped away the tears. I just can't even imagine.

True Crime Audio Documentary

This is more than an audiobook. It’s a full production including interviews with survivors, investigators and more. I finished it in one day because it’s that good.

Fascinating interviews

An excellent audio documentary in the same very effective format as West Cork, this is a collection of interviews with victims, law enforcement figures, scientists and investigators involved in this recently solved, epic case. If you were mesmerized by Michelle McNamara’s “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” you’ll find in this book a satisfying resolution to the mysteries she addressed. A must-read for true crime fans.
