Trace Evidence: The Hunt for the I-5 Serial Killer Bruce Henderson Some books about serial killers are dramatic and emotional Trace Evidence, by contrast, has a steady relentlessness that allows the reader to become fascinated by the characters of the investigators and the facts of how the evidence was assembled This killer specialized in picking up his victims along Interstate 5, near Sacramento, California, and he had an odd penchantSome books about serial killers are dramatic and emotional Trace Evidence, by contrast, has a steady relentlessness that allows the reader to become fascinated by the characters of the investigators and the facts of how the evidence was assembled This killer specialized in picking up his victims along Interstate 5, near Sacramento, California, and he had an odd penchant for snipping at their clothes with scissors As deaths of young women in several different jurisdictions began to form a pattern, a few detectives with contrasting approaches excitable and given to hunches vs cool and logical formed a team Author Bruce Henderson relates how they followed through on a bewildering number of leads, how they ranked their potential suspects on a point system that proved remarkably effective, and how, finally, a trace evidence expert spent many long hours looking through a microscope to cinch the case with analysis of fibers Trace Evidence is skillfully structured, emphasizing the investigation rather than the trial, and includes crisp photographs of the key evidence It would have been a better book if the author had included a timeline of the crimes and a map of the area, but that is a small nitpick about an excellent work of journalism Fiona Webster

    Great book and great author This book was very detailed It is all about how the cops investigated the murders that were all committed around the I 5 highway, or the bodies were dumped there.Because I liked his writing style I searched to find out if he had written other books This is when I learned that he had written And The Sea Will Tell So I checked my books thinking I had read that book, but I did not find a copy on my shelves or did I find an entry about this book on Bookcrossing or.So I mi [...]

    This was a great big whomping trade paperback, but I gladly hauled it all over the county with me this week in case I found 5 extra minutes to read some of it The book was full of typos that a previous owner of my copy helpfully circled in black ink, but that didn t slow me down at all The author did an outstanding job of making me feel the tragedy of every death, in some subtle way I have a hard time pinpointing The killer was a fascinating combination of dull and utterly twisted The personali [...]

    Great book on how a homicide case is investigated I found it interesting and informative without the story turning into a dull piece of facts Great author who provides background information in a manner that builds the story yet still supplies valid informative information.

    Good, Thorough Presentation Of The Multi Faceted Investigation s That Ultimately Led To The Identication And Prosecution Of The I 5 SKForensics have come a long way since the mid 80 s time period in which the I 5 SK was operating and law enforcement was facing a very uphill battle in both identifying the perpetrator, and then dealing with the much formidable task of proving his guilt The author presented a comprehensive picture of the challenges faced by law enforcement which may have been a li [...]

    I had read two other books by this author, but not a true crime book Bruce Henderson has written a detailed and engrossing book here.I stayed up too late a couple of nights because I didn t want to put it down.Not sensationalized or lurid, but just good writing makes for a captivating read.

  7. Melissa Creekmore

    Good readGreat writing It was sad to see how destructive and unhelpful Kibbe s wife was Another view of the government of dysfunction.

  8. Lynda Kelly

    This was a very comprehensive and interesting book about the I 5 killer prolific in the 1980s mainly He s not one I ve heard of before.What comes across well are the police and investigative personnel in this account and the great job a lot of them did in bringing him to justice Even decades after they persisted in wanting his prosecution for other girls he d killed since he was only prosecuted for the one case which really wasn t good enough but seems the best way these days a lot of the time t [...]

    So my cousins just moved, and after taking 6 boxes of books to Powell s and only being able to sell 2 of them , they gave the rest to me Which also somehow is 6 boxes so I m convinced my otherwise smart cousins can t count, but that s beside the point.This is a good, basic real life crime synopsis book The author couldn t get the killer himself to be interviewed for the book, which is disappointing, but it does a good job of summarizing the process to catch the killer, including the mess ups tha [...]

  10. George Sherwood

    This book kept my attention and it was worth the cost It is mostly police procedural rather than forensic science as the trace evidence becomes a dominant factor at the end Another interesting book would be to compare this science with the updated forensic science of today after the 2009 critique of forensic science by a National Academy of Sciences committee Would the trace evidence science still hold up That question does not subtract from the value of Trace Evidence as a good read, however It [...]

  11. Lorraine Grillo

    WELL RESEARCHED AND WELL WRITTENThis book is very well written and very thoroughly researched All of the information is fully presented and made understood but in an easy to read, page turning way Thank God they got him off the streets My only hope is the families of these poor women find some sort of peace Hopefully Mr Kibbe will die a slow painful death because that is what he truly deserves
