    This book is very well written and the legal proceedings are easy to understand for the readers not familiar with the law. The thought that people are out there that sneak into homes and rape, torture and kill for fun is not a pleasant one. This book reminds us to be vigilant in life and be wary of strangers and friends alike.

    Having already read Philip Carlo's book on the night stalker case I was keen to read this. Unfortunately i found it to be poorly researched and littered with inaccuracies, not even Ted Bundy's execution date was right !

    The review Trine posted was actually by me. The brief synopsis is that it's not the best-written book out there, but a great read for true-crime fans or anyone that was terrified by hearing of this case in the past.

    Well let's be frank shall we, this guy was just a super-coward, vicious a^*#hole. I mean, his poor victims lain asleep, mostly old-aged and utterly defenseless. Dear Lord! Then this wannabe-so-called-Satanist enters their homes for nothing more than robbery followed up by cowardly sadistic acts.If this moron actually worshiped and saw Satan himself he would defecate in his pants. Such baseless boasting, did he. Where was his devil-worship bravado when he were surrounded by that baying crowd who chased him and nailed him down for the police to come arrest. Shame that crowd weren't allowed a few minutes alone with him. It was quite clear he so wanted to be a real confident man but his insecurities and sloth life fuelled the want to just rob and kill. Pathetic individual indeed. Clifford L. Linedecker narrates the story of this nasty one well and the writing is paced easy. Next, another pickling read to get stuck in to...mm, look where...

    Highly repetitive, many of the facts claimed are false or inaccurate . The author seems to have done no interviews or investigation on his own . Everything was taken from newspaper accounts, TV news, and court documents. Don't waste your time on this ! Philip Carlo wrote a book called The Night Stalker , it is the complete source on the case ....... so far there has not been a better account. ISBN is 978-0786018109 ,for Carlo's book .

    I'd give this book 3.5 if the option was there. I thought the author did a nice job of giving all the gory details while also explaining angles of crimes and court procedures. By now this book is also a little dated, and does leave the reader hunting for an update on what happened to Richard Ramirez. I also felt there were times when the author came off as being slightly biased about the crime and the perpetrater. Of course, no one can remain completely objective after reviewing the case. Overall, It was a good read. For intro true crime or intermediate enthusiasts.

    GruesomeMy boyfriend thinks I am researching his murder based on the fact that I am obsessed with all things true crime. The more horrific, the better. I didn't know what to expect going in to "The Night Stalker". But I know what I got coming out of it. Learning the details of each attack had me squirming in my seat. Suspenseful, even though I already knew details. I feel like I know Richard Ramirez on a " forensic investigators" level. I now lock and double check my doors at night.

    Gripping read. Hard to put down. The story is terrible but Linedecker tells it very well, despite what sounds like years of sitting in courtrooms waiting for something meaningful to happen. Not to be missed.

    Enjoyable book that covered the topic in good detail. As points it is almost like reading a novel, particularly as it nears the point of his capture. For fans of true crime it is definitely a worthwhile read.

    Night Stalker was a well written, informative book, but did seem to ramble occasionally.

    Good read. Appears to be an accurate account as I was living in Los Angeles at the time and remember the fear that pervaded L.A.
