Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Man in the Monster promises an understanding of a serial killer's mind. What it delivers is a story about a friendship between author Martha Elliot and convicted serial rapist and killer Michael Ross. This book also becomes about Ross's prosecution and about Martha Elliot's views on the death penalty. The story of Michael Ross leaves me not with a greater understanding of how a man becomes a serial killer but with fear and horror.
