Do we really need to know how tacky he thinks Captain D's restaurants are? I went to college with the cousin of one of the murder victims from Captain D's COMPLETELY UNCALLED FOR And lastly learn the definition of ironically There is NO irony in the fact that a killer drove a Chevy Lumina and so did the cops I'm only giving this book one star because we're not allowed to give a negative score The book was confusing and uite frankly if I wanted additional schooling on Criminal Justice I'd just go back and get my Master's degree in it and I don't even think it was particularly well researched including basing descriptions of areas of the city as they are now and not as they were when the crime was committed

Monster City The bloody tracks of these ever escalating crimes each enacted by a different psychopath with the same intent to murder without motive or remorse But of all the investigations of all the monsters Postiglione chased few were as chilling or as game changing as the Rest Stop Killer a homicidal trucker who turned the interstates into his trolling ground Next stop Nashville But Postiglione was waiti Ultimately this was an underwhelming read although it did make me feel very hard boiled and noir ish for having lived in and survived Nashville which I found to be a wonderful and welcoming city during its Dark Age This book suffers from the author's indecision about his focus Is this a case history of murders a snapshot of a city a biography of a lead detective or an origin story for a cold case team? The lack of focus leads to confusion because stories are told out of order or without context and nothing gets satisfactory resolution
