This is one of the most genuinely creepy books I have ever read. The story of John List - how he planned, methodically executed his entire family then fled, assumed a new identity and escaped capture for more than 18 years is almost unbelieveable. He was captured shortly after an episode of "America's Most Wanted" aired. They had taken a photograph of List from the early 70's, aged it and made a bust which was almost immediately recognized by his neighbour who then called police. I cannot imagine what it would have been like living in that house. The author paints a very disturbing picture.
