Rahael’s #CBR4 Review #9: The Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi
I randomly checked this book out while surfing through the available Kindle books on the website of my local public library. At the time, I was unaware that Douglas Preston is actually a thriller and horror fiction author of quite some note and acclaim. The Monster of Florence is however a non-fiction book relating to a series of 16 grisly murders that occurred in the Florence, Italy region between 1968 to 1985. The same gun and pattern was used to commit 8 different crimes against young couples alone in their vehicles in secluded areas. Although several suspects have been accused, arrested and convicted at various times over the years, the cases against each have been flimsy at best and it is widely believed that the true killer still remains at large.
