...the further you go down the rabbit hole, the harder it gets to ignore certain evidence unearthed by Cameron. --Ryan Harkess, Uproxx
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Most people who will read this book will be those curious about the case that Edwards was the Zodiac. I don't know if he was or not, but Cameron shows several similarities Edward E shares with Zodiac that none of the other "suspects" do: 1) We know Edwards was a serial killer who often targeted couples, 2) We know that Edwards liked to write letters to newspapers and the police and that he bragged about his crimes through media outlets, and 3) We have documentation of Edwards claiming to know the identity of Zodiac.
Other stuff seems more dubious. It's hard to say for sure that Edwards was even in California at the time when Zodiac was active. Aside from that, Cameron connects him to *so many* high profile cases that you can get the sneaking suspicion that it's over sensationalized to hype the book. I don't really know what I think, but it's worth a read, in any case.
About half way through the book I knew the fix was in. The author basically attributes the most well known murders/cold cases from the past 50+ years to Ed Edwards. This is practically impossible. Edwards would have been 13 at the time of Elizabeth Short murder. The book also suggests that Edwards may have been responsible for the shooting of his own mother(because she had him out of wedlock):)Wait- he was 5 years old when his mother committed suicide, laughable!
At the end of the book there is an appendix of known murders credited to Edwards, it's in the hundreds, all over the US. While it is clear Edwards was a well traveled man, this would have made him the busiest multitasking person ever to live. He even adds in this section that Scott Peterson is a falsely imprisoned innocent man! This and other accusations by the author are irresponsible and could be damaging to the victims families. You just don't throw claims this flagrant around and get away with it.
In the end it turns into linking murders by "special dates", name tie ins, and complete coincidence that the author shoots himself in the foot with. By the completely unbelievable claims made in this book.

The book is good but seems far reaching at times. If all the stuff in this book turns out to be true, Edwards will go down as the most prolific serial killer of all timePublished 1 month ago by Steven Parlett

Detailed, comprehensive. Amazing collection. There's no way this is all a coincidence and, typical of people not wanting to be proven wrong, no one seems to pay attention. Read morePublished 1 month ago by William C. Waller Jr.
