My Review

5/5 Stars

This was a good overview of Richard Ramirez, his upbringing and his crimes. Even though I’ve read several books about this case, I found that this audiobook had a few details that it could teach me. Recommended read for anyone interested in the Ramirez case.

 Narration fit the material well.

 This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
