As an avid reader of True Crime, this was everything I look for in a book. It had all the elements: a look into the killer's childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, the downward spiral into darkness, respect given to the victims, and a resolution that makes it a little easier to sleep at night. I recommend this book to everyone, not only regular readers of the genre.

The only reason I didn't give this book a 1 star is that some true crime aficionados might like the simple language, for example adults learning English as a second (or third, or fourth) language. Still, even that kind of audience will, I think, be disappointed by this book overall, given its summarizing nature, sometimes childish (not just simple) language, and an overall penchant for sensationalism over real human emotion or dispassionate-yet-empathetic stating of the facts.
For the content it was at best a brief overview of the crime. Barley touching on the details of Heidnik life or of his crimes. I was expecting a more in-depth look into the crimes. This was slightly better then reading Heidnik's Wikipedia page.
