Publisher's Summary

In 1967, during the time of peace, free love, and hitchhiking, 19-year-old Mary Terese Fleszar was last seen walking home to her apartment in Ypsilanti, Michigan. One month later, her naked body stabbed over 30 times and missing both feet and a forearm was discovered on an abandoned farm. A year later, the body of 20-year-old Joan Schell was found, similarly violated.

Over the next two years, five more bodies of female students were uncovered around the area. In the wake of these murders, southeastern Michigan was terrorized by something it had never experienced before: a serial killer. But after multiple failed investigations, a chance sighting finally led to a suspect: an all-American boy studying elementary education at Eastern Michigan University who wasn't all that he seemed.

Intriguing true crime!

Some stated they did not enjoy the narration but I thought he did a great job. Even knowing the crime this book keeps you locked in! So interesting, I would recommend this for anyone wanting a true crime book or even just a good book in general.

Interesting Story

Great story! However, the author was a bit too wordy foe me. Many, many unnecessary details that added nothing to the story.

Starts Real Slow but then gets Much better

Read in time-line form it is a good story. Starts off slow, but gets much better. Ending is abrupt.

Intriguing yet mildly laborious at the end

Strong performance and a story that locks you in. That is, until the trial, when it gets mildly laborious and technical. Too much detail when you want the author to cut to the chase. There it loses its narrative fabric but gets back on track at the very end.

One of the best true crime stories I have listened to.

I read / listen to many true crime stories. This has to be one of the best. It has been meticulously researched and extremely well presented. Five stars from me.
