Publisher's Summary

After Jack the Ripper and before Son of Sam there was only one name their equal in terror: the deadly, elusive, and mysterious Zodiac. Beginning in 1968 the hooded mass murderer terrified the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area with a string of brutal killings. A sexual sadist, his pleasure was torture and murder. His first victims were a teenage couple, stalked and shot dead in a lover's lane. After another slaying, he sent his first mocking note to authorities, promising he would kill again. The official tally of his victims was six. The real toll may have reached 50. He was never caught. Graysmith, who was on the staff of the San Francisco Chronicle at the time of the murders, gives this gripping account of Zodiac's reign of terror.

A Good Overview, But Don't Assume All Correct

I think Robert Graysmith, with what resources he had back then, did an admiral job in tying the pieces together, but check, verify all supposed facts in this book before accepting as fact.

If you go into this book with the aforementioned realistic approach, the story he weaves is compelling.

If you're interested in the case, you should listen to this book, first, then move onto other factual sources to verify.

LOVED IT

Absolutely Loved it! I was familiar with the story of the Zodiac prior to reading this book. I severely underestimated the amount of detail and mystery I had been missing from the story! A must read if you're interested in the Zodiac
