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 A Biography of Innovations unless the author has a personal connection to the case ie The Stranger Beside Me Helter Skelter they often just end Ni arte ni parte 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 Ni arte ni parte 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 Noticias De Los Montoneros up with the history of the killings the second half is just Skin Talks unbelievable Above everything else the logic that the public prosecutor and chief inspector No hay as felices Verónica Rosenthal #3 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 Poesía reunida 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

I am stunned by how much I thoroughly enjoyed this book Serial Podcast invoked an old and underlying interest in me that has now become an obsession unsolved mysteries It is a morbid confession to say how much I enjoy reading about serial killers and spooky mysteries because not only are serial killers the most disappointed and tortured souls to walk the Earth they usually torment and torture their victims leaving a path of destruction in their wake However their tragic tales sure do tell one hell of a story This book is so frustrating that it leaves you thinking a few things you may have never thought before For one I probably won t travel to Florence despite the fact that I am a historian and Florence is the literal birthplace of the Italian Renaissance no big deal The same warped minds that turned a legitimate investigation into a witch hunt of the occult also brought you the international trial of the century Amanda Knox Yes folks when you read about how badly these seemly intelligent men fell so far down the rabbit hole into fantasy land with the biggest crime in modern Italian history only to be held up on charges of planting evidence and false information you really begin to doubt the Amanda Knox case in general I am now even intrigued to read about that case simply because every time these two dimwits investigate a high profile murder they try to work devil worshiping and Medieval satanic cults into the narrative Those two guys are like the bestWhile it is so maddening to see what Giuttari and Mignini have done to the case of the Monster that is only a brief part of the book The first half walks you through the crimes and specific evidence important to the narrative of the crimes In fact I was freaking myself out so much I had to put the book down for a few days This book is stunning in it s storytelling and the ability it has to draw you into it s web of lies clues and false confessions I loved how much I learned from this book in general mostly about Sardinian culture and this weird gang they brought into Italy from their secluded island It s like a poor man s version of the mafia and I found it gross and uniue This is investigative journalism at it s best and a highly recommended read for folks who enjoy raveling mysteries and true crime This book is non fiction but reads like a brilliantly woven novel of fiction It is of course too wild and outlandish to be fiction and can barely be believed as fact The issue alone of two respected men of the Italian public ministry heading advice from a woman who runs a conspiracy theory website is so outlandish that I still don t believe she ended up being a key witnessbut heyI guess she was I think this is a story that needs to be read because there are so many important aspects to the book In fact the sole reason you should read it is that Hannibal Lecter was based on il Mostro di Firenze A brief note about who The Monster of Florence was view spoilerI find it hard to form an opinion about who the killer was in the book for the same reason Serial presented We don t know enough of the evidence that was collected to form an educated guess The fact that the Undisclosed

However I do believe Antonio Vinci is uneuivocally il Mostro di Firenze as it makes the most logical sense I tend to be left brained about these types of things and love a good ending to a good serial
