Praise for HUNTED: The Zodiac Murders
Hewitt gives the most miniscule, detailed findings of the case that has been ongoing for nearly fifty years. No stone was overturned in his investigation of every victim, every prevalent suspect, and every officer that made head way in the case. The questions about the investigation are satisfied, even if the questions about culprit are not. Hewitt even gives examples of every forensic technique employed in finding the Zodiac Killer, everything from handwriting analysis to DNA analysis is explored. Even amidst all of the facts that have been piling up for a decade, there is definite notes of horror, anger and sadness throughout the text that befits the tragedy of death the Zodiac has left in his path. The book is well structured and it was a fast, fun, interesting beyond belief, close look at one of the most befuddling serial killers ever. —H. Rae Monk, 5-star Amazon Review
