Despite my criminal justice background I m not a huge fan of true crime books It s not that I dislike them but unless the author has a personal connection to the case ie The Stranger Beside Me Helter Skelter they often just end up being a recitation of the facts without much going for themWhen I first caught wind of Douglas Preston s debacle with an Italian serial killer The Monster of Florence I couldn t wait to read the resulting book How often does one of my favorite bestselling authors end up in the middle of a serial killer investigation being threatened with arrest on secret charges His novels about serial killers are outstanding and I was looking forward to reading his non fictional accountWhile the first half of the book is pretty typical of true crime books as Preston catches the reader up with the history of the killings the second half is just unbelievable Above everything else the logic that the public prosecutor and chief inspector use to put together theories on the case are just so out of this world it s impossible to believe that they re working in a civilized country in the present era In what was likely a string of murders perpetrated by a lone psychopath who fit a typical FBI profile these two men strung together a vast conspiracy involving a satanic cult body switching instruments that let people communicate with Hell and an ever widening circle of suspects At the forefront of it all is amazingly a blogger whose insane conspiracy theorist ramblings are taken as gospel in the legal pleadings and arguments the prosecutor uoted her verbatimThe maxim truth is stranger than fiction has never been accurate than it is here The fascination for me is not the serial killer himself as far as serial killers go he s nothing out of the ordinary I know this sounds bizarre but I spent a whole semester studying them but the Italian criminal justice system Definitely recommended
