I have finished the other book about the Golden Gate Killer - “I will find you” by joe kenda

It reads like two different stories and totally different perspectives. I constantly tried to connect the dots between the two books but failed.

Reading the two sequentially made me truly awed by the complexity of the crime!

Great read!

For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name. Please note: This work contains descriptions of violent crime and sexual assault and may not be suitable for all listeners.

Ever since he made his first appearance in A Study In Scarlet, Sherlock Holmes has enthralled and delighted millions of fans throughout the world. Now Audible is proud to present Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, read by Stephen Fry. A lifelong fan of Doyle's detective fiction, Fry has narrated the definitive collection of Sherlock Holmes - four novels and four collections of short stories. And, exclusively for Audible, Stephen has written and narrated eight insightful introductions, one for each title.

Would you listen to Sherlock Holmes again? Why?

Great listening experience, but chapters not in orders and hard to sort it out... To the publisher: Please suggest the order as a remedy!
