Former police sergeant and cold-case expert John Cameron believes he knows who killed Teresa Halbach and it isn't Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery. Cameron has a theory...that an infamous serial killer named Edward Wayne Edwards, who's known to frame others for his murders, is behind the killing that's at the center of the Netflix docuseries...And there are certainly some interesting connections. --Business Insider, January 2016
...the further you go down the rabbit hole, the harder it gets to ignore certain evidence unearthed by Cameron. --Ryan Harkess, Uproxx

The writing throughout is also really sophomoric. In employing a 3rd person voice, Cameron sounds disingenuous. He constantly recreates (and inevitably fabricates) many unnecessary exchanges between himself and his research collaborators, and frequently (and lazily) uses terms like "this proves" to assess ambiguous situations and evidence. If he'd allowed for and acknowledged the inherent inconclusiveness in some of the evidence and leads he has uncovered it would not have undercut such evidence's persuasiveness - quite the opposite - his work would be more compelling for its honesty. Instead any critical thinker reading this book can't help but be suspicious of Cameron's professed certainty.
Most people who will read this book will be those curious about the case that Edwards was the Zodiac. I don't know if he was or not, but Cameron shows several similarities Edward E shares with Zodiac that none of the other "suspects" do: 1) We know Edwards was a serial killer who often targeted couples, 2) We know that Edwards liked to write letters to newspapers and the police and that he bragged about his crimes through media outlets, and 3) We have documentation of Edwards claiming to know the identity of Zodiac.
Other stuff seems more dubious. It's hard to say for sure that Edwards was even in California at the time when Zodiac was active. Aside from that, Cameron connects him to *so many* high profile cases that you can get the sneaking suspicion that it's over sensationalized to hype the book. I don't really know what I think, but it's worth a read, in any case.
Cameron goes on detailing his exploits with Neil, who was not even the actual person he was with.
At least he could have offered his findings as his opinions, rather than facts. The book has absolutely no credibility what so ever.
