Very Poorly Edited!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask (Kindle Edition)
This seemed like an ideal purchase for a true crime buff, but I was certainly not impressed with the editing of this book! Misspelled words, run on sentences, having to re-read pages to figure out what the author was trying to say was most annoying. Much of the book was repetitive and I often experienced deja-vu, as in "Didn't I just read this particular passage?" Yep, it may have been written a different way, but it was definitely a repeat of what I had read previously.
Very poorly edited and this is what spoiled the book. The author may very well be a good writer, but I can't believe it was released by the publisher with such crap editing.

i scanned the last half of the book in disgust at the meandering story as it skipped over facts and would repeat a few pages later with another bit of information. i have NEVER read such a book before and was aghast at how the errors eluded the "editors". sooooooo frustrating. I got more out of seeing the 48 hours documentary and another program on Discovery ID than this book. Nothing new and irritating to read. Waste of money.
