By comedian Tim Wilson. Has anyone read this? I just got this last night at Tim's show. I got it autographed by Tim and he told me to go back and re-read The Only Living Witness. He said this book is the only one even close to the trruth. He said Ann Rule's book was full of mistakes and some of the dates she has are wrong and it is significant.

Any thoughts? I can't wait to start this book. I hope to start it tonight. I had to clean all day today. 3 little ones running around, may not be easy!!

Sounds interesting..I'm way down on the wish list but let us know how it is.  The author is a comedian?  It's been years since I read Ann Rule's book on Bundy.  Nothing I LOVE more than a great true crime book and the time to read it

I've read anything on Bundy I have found, but I haven't heard of this book, thanks for letting us know! The Bundy case is esp repugnant, yet interesting at the same time for me, because I live not far from his last victims (in northern Florida) and was the same age as his victims at that time. If that's not strange enough, I also was on my senior trip in a small skiing town in Colorado when he escaped from jail there. Of course, at that time, nobody except a few of the local law enforcement agencies and towns where some of his victims were even knew who he was.

Tim theory is that there are 4 other murders that should have been contributed to Ted but never was because of who they were. He grew up in Georgia when Ted was  killing. He was very close to the murders and this is why he chose to write this book.
