I received a KINDLE copy of this book from the author through a giveaway he recently had on LibraryThing and the following is my honest opinion.

Being the person I am, especially before becoming a Book Reviewer, I would normally shy away from books of this genre. But, now, after reading a few of Mr. Jack Rosewood’s books in this series, I’m hooked and eagerly await the next installment and hope for another giveaway.

Unlike the rest of the books in this series the author has shifted his attention from the U.S. to the “Land Down Under”, Australia; and instead of writing about a serial mass murderer, he’s written about Martin Bryant.  One of the most gruesome aspect of this individual is his reign of terror wasn’t spread over a prolonged period of time; the period of time had only been nearly 24 hours during which he’d killed 35 individuals, most of whom were tourists, and had wounded 23 more.  And to this 28 year old psychopath it didn’t matter whether they were men, women or even children.  This incident has become of one of the worst cases of mass murders in the history of Australia.

Mr. Rosewood has once again taken his readers to the frontline where he writes in a “you are there” writing style which includes information about the murderer’s psyche which might have caused him to commit this heinous act. 

Once you read this book you might become interested in this genre of True Crimes the way I have and the other books written by this author, which is why I’ve given this book 5 STARS.
