I'm so glad I stayed with this book through to the end. The first few chapters were confusing to me with the names, nicknames and aliases, of victims and accomplices mixed up and thrown about like confetti. But I blamed my inattentiveness and vowed to slog on with the thought that it would all come together. It did. It became quite interesting with so much detail and information surrounding the killings and the German occupation up into the postwar era. Thankfully, it was not a gore splashed extravaganza, but the simple description of the slaughter house was quite sufficient for the most blood thirsty of readers. The portrayal of the French people citing their resilience and macabre sense of humor was very enlightening. The visit of the jury and public to the slaughter house was worth the price of admission. The trial chaos had aspects of a Peter Sellers Inspector Clouseau episode. The depiction of Dr. Petiot, with his soulless demeanor, was chilling and echoed descriptions of other true crime psychopathic murderers. You just never know- - - - -. .

wow, hard to believe such a man existed and got away with what he did. Well written look into the life of a despicable, sick man. I got this book for research, it did not disappoint. recommended.

Fans of Ann Rule will appreciate the detail in this book. The French names are a little confusing at times, but it's generally well written and interesting.

This book was well written and very thorough (perhaps a little too thorough). If you like history and murder mystery this book has them both. The research that was done on the entire life of Dr. Petoit is impressive and interesting. The author does right by the victims by detailing their lives and circumsatnces during German occupation in France. You learn as much about the victims as you do Dr. Petoit and his exploits. The reader can also dive into occupied France and experience history as it happens. Overall it was a pretty good book and I would recommend it to anyone interested in this era. Casual readers may find parts that seem to drag as the author divulges mountains of information that do not necessarily advance the story but seem to be mentioned more for posterity. Four stars.

Amazing story that actually occurred

This is an interesting book. While it focusses upon the killer, it provides some great background on the conditions present in Occupied Paris and the conflicts between the Nazis, the Vichy french, the Parisians, and the French resistance.

I was so intrigued when I saw this book on Amazon that I bought it immediately. I gave up on it a third of the way through because it was just so over detailed that it was impossible to follow who was who and what was going on! #Disappointing
Although it is obvious that the author thoroughly researched his subject, I found the book to be slow going slogging through the over abundance of detail. In fact at times the details became confusing and only added to my growing dislike of the book. I forced myself to finish, but do not consider it time well spent.
