Publisher's Summary

Wednesday, October 2, 2002.

Aspen Hill, Maryland. Northgate Plaza.

5:20 PM.

Inside Michael’s craft supply store, cashier Ann Chapman rings up another customer. Then it happens. A loud crack; a gust of wind; the light in register five goes dark.

Over the next 23 days, the entire DC area will be thrust into a reign of terror unprecedented in American history. Sniper attacks targeting and murdering everyday citizens will bring the entire region to its knees, as a nation still reeling from the recent attacks of 9/11 and the anthrax scare, are forced to confront a new type of brutal assault—this time in their own backyard. As law enforcement grapples with the mass carnage and chaos, media’s ravenous 24-hour cycle amplifies the very real fear, while steadily pumping new theories and bad leads onto a paralyzed public desperate for it all to end.

But who can stop it? And exactly how?

Call Me God is the never-before-told story of the fascinating and turbulent investigation that led to the diabolical and elusive killers' capture; one that pitted protocol against instinct, sacred institutions against individual insight. Told firsthand by those few who had the vision and expertise to solve it, and including a fascinating look into the behavioral, ballistic, forensic, and electronic analysis vital to cracking the case, FBI agent brothers Jim Clemente (former FBI behavioral profiler) and Tim Clemente (former FBI counter-terrorism expert) take us through every facet and flaw of a nationwide manhunt that pressure tested nearly every aspect of law enforcement capabilities—and its glaring vulnerabilities.

Anchored by harrowing accounts from victims, intimate conversations with family members of those deceased, as well as candid accounts from those who knew the perpetrators best, relive the haunting events of the DC Sniper attack and piece together a true crime phenomenon that's impact can still be felt today.

Chilling

Hearing this case told from inside the investigation shed light on the process and difficulties law enforcements face, difficulties that the public don’t often get to see. The story of these murders is heartbreaking and I appreciated that the loved ones of the victims, or victims themselves, were able to speak and humanize those lost and the true tragedy of these acts. Very well narrated and incredibly well written. I would recommend to anyone.

It Was Okay

The story was interesting but I found the consistent self praise by Clementes on their involvement and that of the FBI took away a lot of the impact. It gets back on track during the history of the shooters once the Clementes stop saying how awesome of a job they did.

Great Story, Great Production

I was so impressed by the Clemente brothers in both this podcast and Evil Has a Name. It provides a fascinating insight into the investigative procedures and characters involved in cracking this horrific case. Well told, well produced, great narrative voice (reminds me a lot of John E. Douglas actually). One of the best true crime podcasts Audible has done imo, well worth the listen.

Very good story

I enjoyed the story.. We don't hear anything from the Montgamary police department where most of the shooting happened.. They come across as incompetent

Highly recommend for true crime enthusiasts

Call me God was a very easy listen told by people closest to the case. It takes a natural progression of the case approach so it's very easy to follow along with uses diffrent perspectives to show how the shootings affectede everyone involved. Backstory information is given on victims, criminals, and law enforcement officers alike that really helps you relate to all the individuals. From the first shot, until the trials, and aftermath my intrest never wavered.
