Well-Written Account of Incredibly Monstrous Killers
on April 22, 2016
There is very little wasted space in this 400+ page recounting of the serial killings of Leonard Lake and Charles Ng. It moves quickly, and it weaves together the tales of many victims through the first half of the book. The second half of the book covers the long number of years that it took to get Charles Ng to trial and a verdict. It's a great read for anyone interested in this genre, especially if they are from the Northern California area (as am I).
The only gripe I have about this otherwise well-written account is that Don Lasseter editorializes most of the Sheriff's Officers, Police Officers, Detectives, Judges, etc. by complimenting them and imposing positive reputations on the reader. What is sad is that this book did not need the infusion of obvious bias, because the reader is already on their side. There is no reason to that Lasseter had to talk about how esteemed and lauded the individuals were who brought Charles Ng to justice.
