The Golden State Killer. The East Area Rapist. The Original Night Stalker. The Visalia Ransacker.

The monster who preyed on Californians from 1975 to 1986 was known by many aliases. And while numerous police sketches tried to capture his often-masked visage, the Golden State Killer spent more than 40 years not only faceless, but nameless.

I could not believe that this person managed to escape every time when he was sighted or came face to face with someone. It is scary that he managed to evade capture for so long and how he escalated each time after he was nearly caught in the act. DNA is a great tool, The authorities in the USA & here in the UK won’t allow every bit of evidence to be tested because of the privacy of people. What about the privacy of the murdered person or the victim of a sexual attack? I think their justice should be put above privileged privacy. If you have done nothing wrong then you don’t need to hide.

Anyway. This is Well worth a listen and you get drawn in and start to feel for the people who take part of this program. This is one of the best I have come across but I think you should read/listen to I’ll be Gone in the dark 1st.

Well done & Congratulations

The Zodiac serial killer claimed the lives of at least five young victims between 1966 and 1974, and mocked the police with telephone calls, taunting letters, and encrypted messages. Thousands of men have been accused; nearly 2,500 have been investigated. Yet the Zodiac has never been identified. This painstakingly researched and meticulously detailed compendium to the Zodiac serial killer case by true crime author Mark Hewitt presents the crimes and their effect on a community.

I have had an accident and been advised to buy these books to help with my memory loss.

This book falls into the usual self help book catogory. It is 99% of the author praising a book he picked up before he was able to do anything for himself and magically turned him into a succesful person all because he found a secret within that book when he was younger.

Why don't they just stop trying to create a book with a certain amount of words in so they can call it a book and get mugs like me to buy it.

Just tell us the name of the book that magically changed their life and really help people instead of making me listen to the same boring stories you get in stop smoking, self help, improve your mind etc. (I have stopped smoking by myself. No help from any book)

oh, the book is not too helpful improving my memory but did help me improve falling asleep quicker.

As you can tell, I'm still looking for a good self help, stop being grumpy book.

Want to learn a skill, but don't know how to get started? Struggle to find time for a side project? Ever quit in frustration after beginning something new? The truth is: You can learn anything...without spending lots of money...without dedicating thousands of hours to the process...and often without leaving the comfort of your home.

This author is going through each step to help you become confident in your own hobby, job, social or skill you can adapt it to almost everything you do.

It is informative but one line he keeps repeating nearly every chapter is most information is available to you on the internet and you can access it for free. Don't be suckered in by these conmen..........erm you wanted £15 for this and then once I pay it, you then tell me every chapter I could of got this information for free......... like I said....... ironic!! Refund?

Very repetitive and this could all over in one chapter.
