Summary

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, including the various sides of the many disputed issues within the case.

Hunted: The Zodiac Murders is the true story of America's greatest criminal mystery. This indispensable companion book is accessible to anyone interested in joining the pursuit, exploring a mystery, or witnessing the police response to an appalling crime spree. Book One, Hunted: The Zodiac Murders, tells the amazing true story of a serial killer on the loose. Book Two, Profiled, The Zodiac Examined (2017), examines the evidence and offers a careful, detailed profile of the killer based on the case facts. Book Three, Exposed: The Zodiac Revealed (2018) narrows down the lengthy list of suspects, and offers startling conclusions.

Decent.....maybe.....

What did you like best about Hunted: The Zodiac Murders? What did you like least?

The depth of information this book has is very good.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something NOT by this author or narrator. Narrator is very monotone and the constant "quote" "unquote" that he says is just so incredibly annoying.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Redfield?

someone who doesn't say "quote....unquote"

Quote end quote not that big of a deal

I was hesitant to get this audio book because of all the negative reviews about the reader saying "quote end quote" so much that it was distracting from the story. Although it was annoying when he did it, it wasn't throughout the entire book, and it wasn't really that big of a deal.

Nothing new

Pretty much just a rehash of everything else I've read about the Zodiac murders. Narrator is not bad but needs a bit of inflection and to pause at commas and end of sentences. Still, an under dramatized reading is better than an overdramatized one.

Fine book, distracting narration

I have never encountered a quote narrator end quote that uses the words quote quote, end quote end quote as much as this quote narrator end quote. It is very quote distracting end quote, and really diminished my quote enjoyment end quote of the book. There are a large number of quote quotes end quote in the book, so the quote problem end quote runs throughout the entire quote book end quote. Quote frustrating end quote.

Excellent investigation into the 'Zodiac' evidence

Any additional comments?

If you're a true crime fan or closet sleuth, you've probably read Robert Graysmith's 'Zodiac' and like me considered it the undisputed history of facts. It remains probably the best introductory reference, however Mark Hewitt's 'Hunted- Zodiac Murders' offers a less sensationalized and more investigatory look at the evidence. There appears to be many other credible suspects to those crimes and many witnesses accounts actually differ than previously reported. This has left me questioning the official record of things.

Could it be that the crimes are actually unrelated and that the letters were used specifically to tie them together? This is not a point made in the book, but what it has lead me to believe. Obviously the 'zodiac writer' had intimate knowledge of the crimes, but who else would have access to this information- anyone in the police department. What would the motive be- serial killer at large = bigger law enforcement budgets, growing the department, constant\unending screen time on local + national news, instead of investigating numerous crimes\subjects, it's all combined into a crime they know they'll never solve. Think about it, the modus operandi + crime method + weapons used were different in every case.

Why was the Zodiac killer never discovered.... because there never was a Zodiac killer
