A supposed highlight of this true crime book is that Ted Bundy turned Jimmy Rode on to the classified ads as a means of finding women victims. I found Lasseter's book very middle-of-the-road in terms of true crime books.

The chilling true story of Oregon's most shocking killer! Jimmy Rode was serving a sentence for burglary in a Florida prison when he met serial killer Ted Bundy.

I agree with eightofhearts8. the book was good but not great. I also agree with the reader from Boulder, Colorado about warrenel. Ann Rule is one of the best true crime writters and one of the reasons is because she gives you background. that is a very important part of a true crime book. A book with no background tells you nothing. A great story that keeps you in suspense.

The story was interesting--I like true crime books about serial killers. But the very first sentence made me wonder what I was getting into. The book starts off "The city of Florida..." At that point, I wondered if I should keep reading, but decided to give it a shot. I generally tend to overlook poor editing, but at times it was distracting. The book itself was, well, I hate to say poorly written, but at certain points it was. In some places, there was no transition from one thought to another; the story just jumped from one scene of the story to another scene without warning, so that I had to go back and see if I had missed something important while my mind was wandering. It wasn't the entire book, but enough to drop my rating. I could also have done without the 3-page curriculum vitae for each and every investigator on the case. Some of it was relevant, but most was not. It felt almost as if it were added just to make the book longer, giving it the feel of a college paper written by a student who was trying to cram as much useless information into it so that the minimum page requirement was met. Like I said, the story was interesting, but the writing......not so much.

This is a good book for those who like the true crime genre. It's a compelling story told well. There was a bit too much of the trial transcript for my liking, which just rehashed things already told. The most annoying thing, however, is how poorly edited this book is. There aren't just a few typos, but hundreds. It's a disgrace.

as always, with this author. I'm always pleasantly surprised and rewarded when choosing a book by Lasseter. It's not just the subject matter but the lessons learned as one delves into the minds of the criminals and those entrusted to bring those killers to justice.

. . So many grammatical and spelling errors. This seems more true of e-books than printed. I've read other books by Mr. Lasseter and all have been well written. This was not a murderer I'd heard of before, so was particularly interesting.

I enjoyed reading this book.It was obviously well researched and interesting. I did get a little bogged down in the trial part(the only reason I didn't give 5 stars) but pushed through and stayed interested. I recommend this book to all true crime readers.

A supposed highlight of this true crime book is that Ted Bundy turned Jimmy Rode on to the classified ads as a means of finding women victims. There is absolutely nothing in this book that would indicate Rode ever met Bundy....and absolutely nothing about want ads...unless I went into a trance while I was reading it. I found Lasseter's book very middle-of-the-road in terms of true crime books. I found it neither frightening nor informative. Rather, it proceeded from criminal stage to the courtroom without a moment of my heart stopping. Lasseter's approach to this case is, while thorough, boring and dispassionate. Don't buy this book!

Very well researched, detailed facts. Not quite as good as Ann Rule(now deceased) but still very interesting reading.
Very compelling book. Hard to put done. The writer did a good job
