The author talks about visiting many of the places where Bundy lived and where he stayed along his way to Florida, as well as where he most likely laid in wait for his intended victims. I confess that at this late date, with many of these places no longer existing, the author spends too much time describing them. He also tends to drift into strange observations of his own, such as "feeling leftover negative energy" near a particular house, and how he felt when standing in the "exact" places where Ted picked out and grabbed two coeds at Lake Sammamish in one day in Washington State. The author uses words like monster, evil, crazed. All the adjectives you expect to see in thriller fiction books, or cheap and poorly written true crime books. I'm not sure if he's just using these words to try to up the emotional ante, or what, but again it seems odd like the trips to all the "monuments" whether they were houses, campuses, resorts, or a beach. It just seemed to me to be very counterproductive to the wealth of factual information vs personal observations and feelings. There are also so many references to his first book about Bundy, along with teasers in the form of, "here's a little of the whole that's in my original Bundy book", that frankly I found to be not only distracting, but annoying in a way, like a door to door salesman or an infomercial. The kind that say, "But wait! There's more!" It was very off-putting to me. Those personal memories of places visited and how he felt when he was there, and the pushing of his more expensive original book that has been re-released before when new information has been uncovered, are the reasons I gave this 4 stars. If you are a stickler for well edited and proofread material, this one will also get under your skin a little bit, but then again I've been seeing a lot of that in Kindle Books, some that I've already read a few times in hardback are really sloppy in Kindle.
Nevertheless, the original book and this companion piece are crammed with specific witness accounts, transcripts of letters written by Bundy, investigators' reports, psych evals, hair and trace evidence, and parts of the confession transcripts. Once you are familiar with the general story as it is laid out in the earliest books about Ted Bundy, if you want to really get a better handle on the timing of events, and answers to a lot of the questions left hanging for so many years, here is your go to author.
This "extension" is a nice tie of the bow short that delves even further into the mind of Ted Bundy, how others viewed him before his secrets were exposed, and much more.
I have read almost every book about Ted Bundy. In my humble opinion, "The Bundy Murders", is the best and most informative book about Bundy out there, so I wasn't surprised that I equally enjoyed reading more previously unreleased information about him in this book.
Hopefully, Mr. Sullivan will write more true crime books in the near future!
Read my other book, The Bundy Murders (Which I'm going to mention it about 50+ times throughout this book.)
Every place that Bundy committed crimes, I visited, and they pretty much look the same (nearly every location description).
I wrote another book called The Bundy Murders. Did I mention that already? Well, just in case you didn't know, I wrote another book called The Bundy Murders.
I took photos of places, but they aren't included here - I just want you to know that pictures were taken.
At the end of each chapter are just laughable transitions ("But then, something super not good happened.")
Overall, this book was a complete waste of two hours of my life. It felt like reading a transcript of a live podcast with absolutely no logical flow. In addition, it was a shameless, redundant plug for the author's previous book, which as another reviewer stated, the author mentioned at least 46 times. Don't waste your money - buy Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule.
PS: I wrote The Bundy Murders (my previous book, called "The Bundy Murders")
