WOW. I've read a lot about the different serial killers over the ages but I've never heard of Albert Fish (and I suspect many others haven't either). Schechter takes the reader through the events prior to Grace Budd's abduction, who Fish was, and his subsequent trial. Fascinating story about a man many people haven't heard of. If you're at all a fan of Criminal Minds, or like True Crime, I highly recommend this book. Though I will say a warning: It is not for the faint of heart. I have read lots of serial murders/crime/forensic books and this case by far takes the cake for gruesome. The only minor complaint I have, is that, at times, it seems a little disjointed in how all the pieces fit together but Schechter does eventually bring them back all together in the end.
