Read full description of the books Bestial: The Savage Trail of a True American Monster:Harold Schechter is quite a writer. His research is awe-inspiring and the way he can turn a tale told by an outside narrator while cuing the reader as to the times of the era that he's writing about is truly a gift. He spends very little time on the setting up the scene and this makes the read more enjoyable while moving the story along. He can transform the view of the reader from the current times to a time most know very little about. Schechter makes the reader think about not just the serial killer, but about the people that the killer took away. You learn about the person who was killed in just a few introductory words and through the hurt of the deceased person's family. It was a brilliant read and I look forward to reading the next in the series of Schechter books!
