Cole’s house had been on the market for only a couple of weeks before the arrest. He’d never heard of the guy—a seventy-two-year-old retiree living in another part of Sacramento County—but the cops said he was the Golden State Killer, who was suspected of committing at least fifty rapes and more than a dozen murders back in the 1970s.
The mailman said one of the attacks took place inside Cole’s house.
So Cole, an investigative reporter by trade, set out to confirm that the crime actually took place, and who committed the murder. Along the way, he found something even more compelling. All this time, the cops had been sitting on evidence that the Golden State Killer had an accomplice.
My thoughts: I wanted to add this to my list of things I’ve read on the Golden State Killer, and did. Its a well written story that kept me involved to the end. Thriller mysteries aren’t usually my thing, but it was worth the read. Just thinking about there being another DeAngelo type out there is creepy.
