Wednesday, October 2, 2002.
Aspen Hill, Maryland. Northgate Plaza.
5:20 p.m. 

Inside Michael’s craft supply store, cashier Ann Chapman rings up another customer. Then it happens. A loud crack; a gust of wind; the light in register five goes dark. 

Over the next 23 days, the entire DC area will be thrust into a reign of terror unprecedented in American history. Sniper attacks targeting and murdering everyday citizens will bring the entire region to its knees as a nation still reeling from the recent attacks of 9/11 and the anthrax scare is forced to confront a new type of brutal assault - this time in their own backyard. As law enforcement grapples with the mass carnage and chaos, the media’s ravenous 24-hour cycle amplifies the very real fear while steadily pumping new theories and bad leads onto a paralyzed public desperate for it all to end. 

But who can stop it? And exactly how? 

Call Me God is the never-before-told story of the fascinating and turbulent investigation that led to the diabolical and elusive killers' capture - one that pitted protocol against instinct, sacred institutions against individual insight. Told firsthand by those few who had the vision and expertise to solve it, and including a fascinating look into the behavioral, ballistic, forensic, and electronic analysis vital to cracking the case, FBI agent brothers Jim Clemente (former FBI behavioral profiler) and Tim Clemente (former FBI counterterrorism expert) take us through every facet and flaw of a nationwide manhunt that pressure tested nearly every aspect of law enforcement capabilities - and its glaring vulnerabilities. 

Anchored by harrowing accounts from victims, intimate conversations with family members of those deceased, and candid accounts from those who knew the perpetrators best, relive the haunting events of the DC Sniper attack and piece together a true crime phenomenon, the impact of which can still be felt today.

much like the GSK Audio book

This book is similar to the Golden State Killer bok that Audible produced (can't remember the name), with interviews and an almost news/documentary style.

I love this being a huge fan of both non fiction, true crime, and this format. very well produced and a great insight especially from the woman who knew John Mohammed before he was Mohammed.

use the credit, enjoy. even if you're not a fan of non fiction- this one is worth it.

Worth every penny and every minute

Riveting, engaging, informative. I listened to the whole book in two days. I’m very finicky about audio books. Often the voices or audio production can inhibit the story; but this audio is perfect. Every voice was clear, and added depth to the story. Having the actual agents, officers, family members, victims, and survivors on the audio really kept this story completely human. Well done and worth listening.

Couldn't Turn Off

I listened to this almost all the way through, I could not turn it off! It's definitely more of a podcast like what they did with Evil Has a Name (which I also highly recommend). The series does a fantastic job of giving an overview of the events and the investigative tactics used by law enforcement in this case, but it's also s very personal story as the main narrators were involved and their family members make appearances and speak about how the DC sniper attacks affected them. I'm really surprised I hadn't heard about this before, especially as I live fairly close to where one of the preliminary shootings took place. I hope they make more true crime podcasts like this and Evil Has a Name! Highly recommend!

Near Perfect

This audiobook feels more like a serial podcast, with music and first-hand interviews.

Near perfect. Covers all the bases.

I remember certain parts of this story. This audiobook helps fill in the gaps.

Good reporting with a little too much sound design

I found this audio program interesting and would recommend it. My one caveat is that the soundscape is a bit too aggressive. Playing a bed of piano music under interviews to elicit emotion, for example, is a crutch used too often. The story is power and compelling enough that this sort of presentation took away from the narrative.

Chilling and Captivating

I listened to this in its entirety in a single day while at work. The story was one I was completely unfamiliar with and was hooked almost immediately.
The events are unfolded and delivered tactfully to keep you interested.
My only complaint is that at the end and beginning of each chapter the same music plays as if this were episodes of a podcast or something. It started to get irritating after awhile.

engaging

The format was excellent. It was easy to follow and very intriguing. I remember when this happened, it was way too close to home.

What they call music almost ruins the whole book

Great book, except for the noise that some would call “ Music” very unnecessary almost ruins the whole book

excellent book!!

this book was amazing in that so much of the story and the narration were directly from the people that were involved in the investigation, and telling in fine detail how they finally captured these criminals and brought them to justice. it was emotional, intense, and told with an urgency and frustration that was felt by those involved during that long horrendous Siege of killing. I thought it was extremely well done.

Excellent

This book is told from multiple viewpoints about the hunt and arrest of the DC snipers . It goes into lots of detail about all the behind the scenes things that happened. You get to know the FBI profilers, the killers, and several family members of the victims. A very well told story with great respect and attention to the victims. You really don’t get to know much about them by watching the news. It sounds as if our world lost some beautiful people the day these guys went on their rampage.
