Zodiac: The Shocking True Story of the Hunt for the Nation's Most Elusive Serial Killer (Zodiac Killer) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horrifying in a way no fiction can be, Zodiac is the gripping story of the serial murderer who terrorized the San Francisco bay area from 1966 to 1978. The book contains reproductions of the killer's communiques to the police as well as the author's own chilling speculations on Zodiac's true identity — and his whereabouts today.

Review:

"In this full, chronological account, which will fascinate true crime readers, [Graysmith] speculates about the most likely suspect." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Who was Zodiac? A serial killer who claimed 37 dead. A sexual sadist who taunted police with anonymous notes. A madman who was never apprehended. This is the first, complete account of Zodiac's reign of terror. Is he still out there?

Synopsis:

Robert Graysmith was on staff at the San Francisco Chronicle in 1969 when Zodiac first struck, triggering in the resolute reporter an unrelenting obsession with seeing the hooded killer brought to justice. In this gripping account of Zodiac’s eleven-month reign of terror, Graysmith reveals hundreds of facts previously unreleased, including the complete text of the killer’s letters.

About the Author

Graysmith was a San Francisco Chronicle artist and journalist for more than 20 years, a Foreign Press Award winner, a 7-time Pulitzer Prize Nominee, and a Nationally Syndicated Political Cartooning Prizewinning Gold Medal Illustrator.
