My Book Review:
In A Monster Of All Time, author JT Hunter takes the reader behind the scenes of a riveting true crime thriller for an in depth look at a highly publicized murder case set in Gainesville, Florida.
In a span of four days, from August 24-27, 1990, thirty-six year old convict/drifter Danny Rolling terrorized the quiet University of Florida town of Gainesville with a series of three heinous and gruesome crime scene murders of five college students in their apartments. This is a horrific story of a narcissistic and depraved man's descent into madness with a lethal bitterness for the wrongs committed against him in the past, and a dark and twisted sense of revenge to make others suffer and ultimately pay the price by taking their lives, and the investigative and legal process that took sixteen years for justice to prevail.
A Monster Of All Time is a riveting story that easily draws the reader in from the start, keeping them captivated as the author weaves a thoroughly intriguing and intricate recounting of a highly publicized murder case. I remember seeing this case profiled on the television news outlets back in 1990, so when I saw that the author wrote an in depth true crime novel based on this case, it peaked my interest and I knew that I had to read it.
The author provides the reader with a fascinating and richly detailed and in depth look into the back stories and lives of the victims and the serial killer. The author utilized his extensive experience as a criminal attorney and college professor to provide a thorough recounting of this heinous case with a critical eye towards the research of the serial criminal's background, and the investigative and legal processes of the case; including a very detailed timeline, quotes that open each chapter, and crime scene photo inserts throughout the book.
You can't help but get drawn into this complicated, fascinating, and multi-layered story, it is a gripping dark account of a truly horrific serial killing spree, and the mind boggling investigative and legal path that took the justice system sixteen years to render justice for the five victims.
A Monster Of All Time is a gripping and chilling true crime account of the Gainesville Ripper serial killer that is a must read for all true crime fans.
