Diana Montane and Sean Robbins truly did their research and wrote "Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask" in a manner that gave his victims a final voice. They exposed the true demonic nature of this monstrous man who lived among many of us for so long; written not only honoring his victims, but the victims of so many like his.
THANK YOU DIANA MONTANE AND SEAN ROBBINS!!! THANK YOU for bringing the issue to light, thank you for opening up all of our eyes to the fact that people just like Charlie Brandt do live next door to many of us, do walk and live among us, so many never caught, but always killing, even with their eyes.
Thank you for shedding light on "The mission of the Michelle Lynn Jones Foundation" a foundation working to help promote personal safety by raising public awareness about invisible criminals in our communities through public education and advocacy, enhanced education for health care professionals and law enforcement, and enabling law enforcement to conduct more comprehensive criminal investigations, as needed. mlj-foundation (dot) org.
As a result of the emotional pain of losing Michelle, the family of Michelle Lynn Jones - relatives, friends, business colleagues and clients - have made a commitment to focus the pain of their loss on constructive efforts to positively impact individuals and communities to further honor her and the wonderful human being she was. Her life ended in an untimely, horrific manner. Her death could have been avoided. Systems need to be in place to discover invisible criminals like Charlie. A social network site dedicated to defining these systems. It is located at icriminals(dot)ning(dot)com; we encourage all to click here and join the cause.
I am a long time friend of his final victim Michelle Lynn Jones, and her family. As I type this review, Michelle's kitty Miss Gizzie is laying next to me with her head on my arm. I am honored to have Ms. Gizzie, I am honored to have Michelle's beautiful baby, not only to love, but she a daily reminder of such a wonderful person whom I LOVED and ADORED! I am HONORED to have had such a friend in my life, a true friend to all, a gentle soul, giving, lively, and funny!
The importance of this book, is beyond just telling the story of how this man lived among us, it is to HONOR those lives that he took away from us, to bring to surface the steps that we can take, the steps our law enforcement can take, and the changes that can be made in our judicial system and changes in the current laws protecting criminals who commit MAJOR crimes as a minor and have their records expunged, allowing them to continue on as adults, killing, raping, and destroying the lives of so many, their families and their friends!
AGAIN, THANK YOU DIANA MONTANE AND SEAN ROBBINS... WELL DONE! EXCELLENT!!!

That said, I found the book rather poorly written. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling errors abound. Sentences are awkwardly written and repeated several times, leading me to wonder if this was not the final draft, that some sections were copied and pasted prior to a final edit.
A chapter on a psychic had me rolling my eyes and in my opinion, was not necessary at all and diminishes the credibility of the book.
On the plus side, the authors clearly did their research and had intimate access to those most affected by these murders. I feel for Mary Lou Jones, who lost both a sister and a daughter. I would recommend this book with the caveat that it is not one of the best written books available. Still, if you want a scary bedtime story, this book will curl your hair.
cousin was one of the girls he murdered. I kept after the police for years on the case as I wanted to know who killed her before I died, it all came to a head in 2004. If you like true crime story's you will like this book.....
