He was a model citizen. A hospital volunteer. And one of the most sadistic serial killers of all time. But few people could see the cruel monster beneath the colorful clown makeup that John Gacy wore to entertain children in his Chicago suburb. Few could imagine what lay buried beneath his house of horrors-until a teenage boy disappeared before Christmas in 1978, leading prosecutor Terry Sullivan on the greatest manhunt of his career. Reconstructing the investigation-from records of violence in Gacy's past, to the gruesome discovery of twenty-nine corpses of abused boys in Gacy's crawlspace and four others found in the nearby river-Sullivan's shocking eyewitness account takes you where few true crime books ever go: inside the heart of a serial murder investigation and trial.… (más)

Amazing true crime story of determined police vs criminal very close but most clever. Well told. ( )
  earthwind | Aug 24, 2020 |
Okay so here's my take on this one... If you like reading about play-by-play police procedures then this book is for you. If not, this book will get very boring very quickly.
I wanted so much more out of this book than what it delivered. I wanted a little more insight into Gacy himself. This book was more of a fact delivering work instead of a story that is being told. It's just fact after fact after fact. And some facts that are told in the book need more information and we as the reader never get it. Sadness ☹️
Also I have to mention that the cover looks a bit too much like a tabloid headline for me.
like I said if you like police procedures and fact listing then you will like this book. If not don't bother. ( )

This was good book, but it moved a lot slower than you would think it would. Lots of following people around and sitting and waiting. It has it's amazing (in a bad way) points when they start uncovering bodies (21, I think) in JWG's crawlspace below his house, but it still moves rather slowly. ( )

From the front of the book: The shocking true story of the man convicted of more murders than any other person in United States history!

Some might think that back to back books on the same person would be boring, but each author has his own style. Terry Sullivan was one of the District Attorney’s who help prosecute John Wayne Gacy. He was in on the investigation from the beginning.

This is a very detailed account. The investigation is broken into days. It was 10 days from John Gacy’s last victim being reported missing to the first human bone being found in his crawl space. Terry Sullivan relates where Gacy went and the numerous problems the surveillance team experienced along with the investigation being conducted during these same 10 days. Then begins the recovery process and the preparation for trial.

There is a break right now to go back in time to consider Gacy’s life. The trial is broken down into weeks, again very detailed, with who testified to what at times with word for word transcript. Terry Sullivan does a good job of giving us the meat of the trial without being boring and tedious. Since this book was written in 1983 there is no follow up after Gacy is sentenced.

Killer Clown gives us a very different perspective on Gacy that is informative and interesting.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to true crime fans.
