Summary

The search continues....

Following up on the meticulously-detailed research of Hunted: The Zodiac Murders, Profiled: The Zodiac Examined goes beyond the case files to develop a comprehensive criminal profile that examines the personality, psychology, physical characteristics, and motives of the Zodiac. Based in the same detailed research of Hunted, Profiled sticks to the facts and articulates at every step how the conclusions of the profile were reached.

At the time the Zodiac was committing his crimes, the term “serial killer” had not yet been coined, and psychological profiles were practically unknown. Now, using 21st-century crime analytics and a sophisticated understanding of serial killers, it is possible to create a comprehensive profile that may help identify the kind of man who could commit these terrible crimes and get away with it for decades, despite an overabundance of evidence that should have pointed directly to him.

Join the search for the killer as the evidence is compiled and analyzed in Profiled: The Zodiac Examined.

Frustrating!

The Narration is outrageously frustrating .... at least one third of the audio book is dedicated to listening to the narrator repeat the word “quote” and “end quote”. Example: “he was quote intelligent end quote and understood quote directions end quote and quote a map end quote and quote distance end quote and quote cardinal points end quote ..... “ and just when you think it couldn’t get any worse he starts to quote -end quote INDIVIDUAL LETTERS !!!! It’s basically a very well researched discussion centred around the logical presentation of every possible permutation of the evidence and what it might mean.... but too much of “it could be this or it may mean that or it might actually mean none of this”. only in the very final chapters do we get some form of “quote” attempt “end quote” to present a profile of the killer..... and it’s not the author’s..... just an old one that can be pulled off the internet.... waste of cash and time.

The Text of Story Is Good. Narration - Not So Much

Lots of facts per the California "Zodiac Killer" case...Good for anyone interested in this ongoing mystery...My "not so much" issue is with the Narration...The Reader drove me to stop listening at times because of his reading what was apparently quoted material...and his speaking the words - Quote...Close Quote - after EVERY Phrase...or single Word...e.g., The detective said, Quote, "NO," Close Quote...etc. etc...and there was a LOT of this... I've never encountered this before in an audio-book...If this were a hard-copy book,quotes would be obvious...but not necessary in this audio format...To me, this was extremely distracting...Take Care!
