HUNTED: The Zodiac Murders

Book 1 in the Zodiac Serial Killer Series

The hottest topic in true crime research today, the Zodiac is America’s most enigmatic serial killer. No serial killer has done more to capture the public’s imagination since London’s Jack the Ripper carved up 5 helpless prostitutes in 1888.

Mark Hewitt's series on the Zodiac serial killer painstakingly examines the murders (HUNTED, 2016), the evidence (PROFILED, 2017), and the Zodiac killer himself (EXPOSED, 2018).
