Invisible Killer, The Monster Behind the Mask is the story of how one serial killer avoided discovery until it was too late to seek justice. It is about just how manipulative and cunning he was in order to achieve his goal. There should be no illusions about how dangerous this man
was, but little could be done to save his victims. In hindsight, the signs of impending doom were there, but would the average layman or even the authors, Diana Montane and Sean Robbins, have been able to recognise them for what they were? I think that it would have been difficult. Many acts of murder do not stick in the public's mind, so awareness of lives less fortunate than our own are so very important and should be aired.

Diana Montane and Sean Robbins have put a lot of work into a story of, what is essentially, horrific and life-changing tragedies. The research into the explicit details of the crimes, and the effect it has had on those left behind, must have taken a lot of strength and tenacity to carry out. I felt, however, that there was a lot of jumping around in the narration. It did make it difficult to keep up with who was who and what relation they were to the killer and those he knew. The images of the killer and the people involved in his life further into the book, did help, though, to bring things more into perspective. It is a moderately paced book, which kept me on my toes, and I particularly liked how the pace slowed down and became very in-depth at key moments. Overall, I found Invisible Killer, The Monster Behind the Mask a very interesting and moving tale.
