Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is a capable, if sometimes breathless, reconstruction of the rampage of Robert Hansen, the "most prolific serial rapist and murderer in Alaska's history," who killed more than 20 women in the 12 years before his conviction in 1984. Freelance journalist DuClos has recreated some scenes and dialogue, but has dug enough to find victims who escaped Hansen, to show how police and judges blundered in being lenient with Hansen (such as by not ensuring that he would receive psychotherapy and lithium treatment) and to describe Anchorage's tawdry tenderloin district, where Hansen stalked nude dancers. A native of Hansen's hometown, Pocahontas, Iowa, DuClos describes young Hansen as a stuttering loner with acute feelings of inadequacy--elements common to serial killers, according to FBI research cited here. Convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in 1972, Hansen was quickly furloughed, and while he held down a respectable job as a baker and won trophies for his hunting, he resumed his killing spree. He would kidnap women, take them to the wilderness (often in his plane), sometimes rape them, and stab or shoot them. After a victim who escaped Hansen identified him, police confronted him and he confessed, leading troopers on a macabre tour to identify wilderness gravesites. Hansen is now serving a life sentence in an Alaska prison.

Good, yet older, book on Robert Hansen, Alaska's human hunting killer, who murdered over 20 women in the tundra from the 70's to 80's. The book is fairly well written & keeps your intrest, while at the same time remaining "human" to Hansen's victims (most of whom were prostitutes or strippers or both). As for "gory details", there isn't much, though i was disturbed at several of the killing descriptions. Overall a good true crime book on a bizzare serial killer, must have for criminology/killer/crime buffs.

The content of the book was pretty good. Sometimes choppy but overall a good read.
The format was simply awful... words run together, random hyphens, symbols inserted in the middle of words. Some sentences were cut off...I swear something was missing several times.

The book is written very well but my problem with it is how badly it has been converted to Kindle. Buy the paperback instead.

Fair Game is a very good book, and hard to put down! Fair Game is a well written true crime story and now includes an updated afterword, written in 2013. I had never heard of Robert Hansen until I watched the mover Frozen Ground (Nicholas Cage / John Cusack). After watching the movie I was interested enough to buy the book and as usual, the book is better than the movie! It is hard to believe that this could have happened with so little national attention or notoriety. If you like true crime stories you'll really like this book!

We live in Anchorage, and are very aware of this story. We had recently watched the movie, "On Frozen Ground," about this same story, which we liked a lot, and my husband decided to read the story again.....a regular page turner it is.

A lot of typos but a good read. It goes into the background of the victims as well as Hansen. You get a good feel for the characters if you can work your way through all the typos.
