I don't know if I have ever in my life read or seen anyone who personified the purest of evil as that of H.H. Holmes (mudgett)!! It is as if the devil himself walked in the skin of this man. I am shocked that we don't hear more about him because in comparison, Ted Bundy and others like him don't hold a candle to this most wicked of men! The book by Mr. Eckert is excellent in it's accounting and I give it five stars. I read scary books (Stephen King etc.. ) but this true life story is just about the most frightening of them all. Not the least because it is true. I just do not understand what happens to make monsters like this and most unfair of all is that they look just like you and me.
