Heather reviewed The Night Stalker: The Life and Crimes of Richard Ramirez on
Great book, Richard Ramirez was one of the SCARIEST serial killers I have read about . The randomness in which he killed.He broke all the rules he killed people of all sex age and race. He also varied the method in wich he killed some shot others stabbed or beat. He broke the mold of what we have come to understand of most serial killers. Ramirez was pure EVIL who just wanted to kill as many people as he could to satisfy his blood lust and alligence to satan.This book reminded me there is no cut dried pattern for a serial killer and truth is scarier than fiction.
This book was a really good read. One of the few I've read in one day in a while. A friend mailed it to me and I got into the story right away. It's well written to keep your attention and moves along quickly.
If you enjoy true crime, this is one that should be on your shelf.
The first part of this book was really hard to read, it's pretty graphic and it scared the heck out of me. I read at night, late, and I kept hearing noises and generally freaking myself out. I almost gave up on it until the author delved into the investigation and court trial. I find all that legal stuff fascinating. The killer is pure evil, with no remorse and no soul. It was very well written, I think the first part could have been shorter, but it was very well done. I'd recommend this to other true crime fans - just make sure your doors are locked! ;)
