A book about John Wayne Gacy does not really need to be summarized so I will jump right in with my review. Joseph R Kozenczak was the arresting officer and chief investigator in the John Wayne Gacy serial murder investigation. John Wayne Gacy hated him, during interrogation he would answer any question the officers put to him, but refused to speak if Kozenczak was in the room.
Since this book was written by the chief investigation officer it is like a look inside the police department. It is detailed but does not get bogged down. Kozenczak is a very compassionate man with a lot of empathy for the victims and is unstinting with his praise of other officers dedication, talents and efforts extended to at first, find a missing young man, and then gather the evidence needed to arrest and convict Gacy. He’s a little light on the trail, something that is a plus with some readers, but even there he gives enough for you understand what happened.
I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to true crime fans.
