I was only a small child when all of this happened, but it is something that has been in news over the years, especially with regards to the unsolved Wanda Beach murders.
This book is completely fascinating, yet completely horrifying in that a man, doing what he was doing, got away with it so many times. So many time he was within the grasp of police, and so many times he walked away to do it again.
I would like to think that in this day and age, with social media and insta-everything that this would not happen again, although we know it still does.
Mr McNab had me intrigued and engrossed in this story right away. I know someone who knew one of the girls who was murdered at Wanda Beach, and thy have mentioned on more than one occasion Christopher Wilder and how he got away with it.
Being that Mr McNab is a former police detective, the writing can sometimes come across quite dry, however that didn't bother me. I was so interested in the story itself.
I closed this book, thinking of those who survived, heart hurting for the family of those who were never found.
I am now keen to continue my true crime binge.
