Hunted by Mark Hewitt is Book 1 in the Zodiac Killer Series. This is the true story of an investigation into the Zodiac Killer, a killer who has never been caught, never been identified, despite taunting the police for years. Thousands of men were investigated and accused of being the Zodiac Killer, yet not one was arrested. Despite thousands upon thousands of man-hours of thorough investigation, combing of crime scenes and questioning of suspects, there has never been one clue as to who he is. The crime spree stopped as suddenly as it began – is the Zodiac Killer dead? In prison? Or did he find a conscience all of a sudden? This is something we will never know, but this is the first time the case of the Zodiac Killer has ever been so thoroughly researched.
Hunted (Zodiac Killer Series Book 1) by Mark Hewitt is the product of deep and careful research. It is, without a doubt, one of the best-written true crime stories I have ever had the privilege to read, and it had me really thinking. You could be forgiven for thinking it is a fiction book when you start to read it, but that is a mark of just how well thought out this book is. It is written like a novel, but packed with facts and descriptions that really bring it to life in the mind. It was one of the most down to earth, matter of fact books I have ever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the perfect book for any true crime lover, or anyone who wants to have a go at getting inside the mind of a serial killer to find out why they do it, what makes them tick. A truly engrossing story, it deals in hard facts and nothing else, and that is what makes this such an intriguing read. I understand there are more books to come in this series – I can’t wait to read them.
