If you're interested in the Zodiac murders, or true crime in general, this is a great book. Its best if you're familiar with the crimes, but not necessary. Graysmith is the essential writer, having been living in San Francisco during the original murders, he became deeply invested in finding the identity of the Zodiac. Here, Graysmith outlines the crimes and the possibilities, but gives the suspects pseudonyms. I'm sure you'll finish wanting to know more, which is great because Graysmith follows up with another book!

I don't know why I read this whole book. The writing is mediocre. The diary style is inconsistent. The facts about the Zodiac killer investigations are interesting enough in the beginning, but the book loses focus. If Graysmith would have focused on a particular aspect--the actual crimes, the identity of Zodiac, the bungled investigation--the book might have worked.
