3.5 rounded up. I think I was hoping for something a little less memoir-y and more detailed in research analysis.

Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
The author alone had me excited for this book. Paul Holes is known for his connection with the Golden State Killer investigation and reading his thoughts on the journey to the arrest is fascinating. Throughout the book, Holes reveals more about his past and the road that led him to criminal investigation. He also name drops many other well-known cases that he worked on, many of which I was already familiar with, but had no idea he was involved in the investigation! It's always fascinating to read about well-known cases from different points of view (the family of the victims and different investigators for example) so it was nice to read what Holes thought about these notable cases. This book is a great choice for anyone into true crime, investigations, or Paul Holes himself!

I always really enjoy his books. Learned more about the GSK along with his perspective on the story as opposed to all the accounts.
