Steve has pinned every unsolved killing in his father's general vicinity for his entire life on dear ol' Dad. You get the feeling he would name his father as Jack the Ripper, if he'd only been alive then. I know that cops like to clear every murder they can by attributing them to serial killers, but this time, he's gone too far. It's clear that Hodel the father was an unsavory character and was suspected of murder in a couple of cases, but he would have to be superhuman to do all that his son believes.

November 29 2014.....I have only listened to bits and pieces of this while my spouse was listening, but I will have to dedicate myself to getting it again and listening to the whole thing. The parts that I heard were fascinating and totally bizarre (almost unbelievably so)!

The late Dr. George Hill Hodel is falsly accussed by his retired son Steve of commiting nearly every unsolved murder imaginable.

I commend Steve Hodel on the obviously extensive research that he's performed on a topic that for him personally had to be very difficult. His findings are presented in a fluid and organized manner that leads the reader along fairly quickly to his conclusion. That said - and he admits this at least once in the book - his findings are circumstantial at best. By the end of the book, I got the feeling that he couldn't see the forest for the trees and was almost willing connections to exist. Still a good read though, with chilling moments throughout.
