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.
