Yes, in NYC this guy was called the Zodiac, but this author uses California's infamous Zodiac Killer symbol, etc. on the cover. So much for imagination.
The book itself is a total waste of time, the writing is poor, there are spelling and grammatical mistakes throughout. If I could have given this book a zero star rating I would have.
If you want good true Crime check out books by Graysmith, Keppel, Rule, Bledsoe and Carlton Smith, these names are KNOWN in the True Crime genre, Crowley is not.
Now that that's out of the way, let's get to this book: It is a little brief, and doesn't have a satisfying ending, mostly because it was written before the trial of Saeda concluded, but other than that, it was a very good read. This is one of only known copycat cases out there; they happen in the movies a lot but not so much in real life. It's a very interesting case. The New York Zodiac isn't as mysterious, or clever as the original, but he is just as brutal in his ways. One of the most intriguing aspects is how Saeda constructed his own guns, and also how he was able to actually kill people by their astrological signs (making him a more true zodiac killer.)
Just because he is a copycat doesn't make his story less interesting; in fact the original zodiac was just a copycat. He got his name and famous crosshairs symbol from a watch; and his outfit and even some of his writings were knockoffs from the book and film of Most Dangerous Game.
I wish this book had been finished after the trial, so it could contain a proper ending, however, everything up to the ending makes for a thrilling read
