As a veteran police investigator, Steve Hodel's instincts told him that if his father was capable of that level of cruelty, it probably didn't begin or end with the Black Dahlia. Steve Hodel has devoted his life to examining the evidence of his father's fascinating and mysterious life, and shocking new revelations that have come to light in the last five years are the subject of Most Evil.
If Steve Hodel's research is correct, Dr. George Hill Hodel was among the most prolific serial killers in history, beginning as a young man and continuing to kill throughout his long life of 91 years. Among his crimes are dozens of unsolved murder cases stretching back 60 years.
Most Evil compiles an astonishing amount of never-before-seen visual, circumstantial, and forensic evidence to prove Hodel's case. This relentless, compelling, and persuasive investigation will revolutionize the way we think about some of the most intriguing, brutal, unsolved, and previously unconnected murders in American history - and it may change our understanding of serial killers altogether.

Another "Dad is the killer" investigation by Steve Hodel. I didn't dislike this book, but I didn't find it as intriguing as his first book regarding his father as the killer of Elizabeth Short (the Black Dahlia). I think the reason behind that is that much of the information background information is repeated in this book. Steve Hodel also has a tendency of telling you of an event in detail, and when referencing said event, will once again re-describe the entire event. It just seems to drag on a bit in those instances. As I said, not a bad read, not a great read, just a good interesting theory on unsolved crimes.
Really sounded like an interesting topic and probably would have been if condensed into much less but the repetitive chapters and info left me feeling like i was sitting in a congressional hearing...skip the book, read wikipedia about it instead
If there had been fewer cases and details with a focus.
Boring unless you just want to listen to gruesome detailed murders.
hideous, incredible, ongoing!!
Linking with other murders which almost convinces me....but I have questions.
Im not really a reader, makes me fall asleep. I listen to books as i do my job which is on computers.
Most notorious unsolved murder finally solved.
Most awful, hideous, sad, account of a life rubbed out by a genius who did not live in this world.
