Publisher's Summary

Most Evil II is Steve Hodel's follow-up investigation (2009-2015) into his father's potential murders and introduces new evidence and additional linkage obtained by him over the past six years.

Included in that evidence is the solving of the Zodiac's 45-year-cryptic cipher, which gives us the answer to the question asked in Most Evil: Were Black Dahlia Avenger and Zodiac the same serial killer?

The solution of that cipher provides us with the name of San Francisco's most infamous serial killer. However, it is not presented as just another theory from some armchair detective or even from the author himself, a highly respected veteran LAPD homicide detective. Rather, the solution comes from the killer's own mouth, written in his own hand - it is Zodiac's personally signed confession!

an acceptable follow up

hodel presents his hypothesis backed with evidence in the manner of a criminal investigator, which is refreshing among true crime theorists. however, the "hard evidence" in this sequel stretches like warm taffy into conjecture & at times feels like the flimsy connections of paranoia. i loved hearing about the connections to surrealism and Hollywood, but remain unconvinced that they constitute "hard evidence." (If handwriting analysis & psychiatry experts aren't reliable enough, then neither can be the observations of synchronicity & "thoughtprints" gleaned by a suspect's son.) fascinating ideas, and would love to hear hodel delve more into the analysis of psyche, art, & symbolism.

FASCINATING... FRUSTRATING... MINDBOGGLING!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Only if they had read his previous books so that they understood what was going on.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

That the proof is right there and law enforcement won't do anything about it.

If you could give Most Evil II a new subtitle, what would it be?

Evil Lived and it was my Father.

I liked the details of proof in this book.

I believe Steve whoa Dale is right and his father, Dr George Hodel, was the Zodiac Killer.. Am now seriously questioning the case recently in the news where a man and California was charged with those murders.
