Description

Twenty-five years after Richard Ramirez left 13 dead, paralysing the city of Los Angeles, his name is still synonymous with fear, torture, and sadistic murder. Philip Carlo's US best seller The Night Stalker, based on three years of meticulous research and extensive interviews with Ramirez, reveals the killer and his horrifying crimes to be even more chilling than anyone could have imagined.

From watching his cousin commit murder at age 11 to his 19 death sentences to the juror who fell in love with him, the story of Ramirez is a bizarre and spellbinding descent into the very heart of human evil. Incredibly, after The Night Stalker was first published, thousands of women from all over the world started to contact Carlo, begging to be put in touch with the killer. Carlo began to interview them and, in this compelling new edition, presents their disturbing stories and the dark sexual desires that would drive them towards a brutal murderer.

Also, in an exclusive death-row interview, the killer himself gives his thoughts on the 'Ramirez Groupies' - and what he thinks they really want.

Philip Carlo was the author of the international best seller The Ice Man, as well as The Night Stalker, Gaspipe, and The Killer Within. He lived in New York until his death in November 2010.

Insightful

I found this book very insightful and informative.

Only issue I have is when a male narrator turns his voice into a female voice. I know it's to make it as authentic as possible but it sounds annoying. But else the narrator did a good job

A great example of serial-killer true crime!

"The Night Stalker" by Philip Carlo is certainly one of the most detailed and exhaustively-researched works of true crime I have ever read. Of particular interest are his insights into Ramirez's character and the workings of the mind and motivations of this infamous killer. Very impressive!

one of the best of this genre

Philip Carlo has structured this book in a most effective way - three parts, with an epilogue. Part 1 recounts the sequence of Ramirez's dreadful crimes and the victims and their families; Part 2 is the story of the Stalker himself and his family; followed by Part 3, the story of the trial. The epilogue features an interview with Ramirez. The book held my interest from start to finish, but I found the interview frustrating because Carlo didn't ask Ramirez the thing I most wanted to know: how Ramirez would have felt if someone had done to his mother or sister what he had done to his victims. The story of Ramirez's life does suggest that despite his God-fearing, hard-working, law-abiding parents, there were a lot of negative influences on his childhood and teen years which can be seen as contributing to the monster he became. In the end, I was left wondering whether anyone or anything could have, at any point in Ramirez's life prior to these crimes, steered him away from the course he took. The narrator does a great job, he is good with accents and voices, and has just the right voice for true crime.
