More of a self-examination book by an Elmore Leonard wannabe.

I agree with matcat44, but I did finish the whole bk. What the author is doing in this is "vamping", or trying to make more of what little story he has. I didn't really learn anything new about the rich & wealthy.

Didn't like the style of writing or the personality of the author, so I couldn't really get interested in the subject. Why put that pitiful little dog through such a trauma to please a (seemingly) rich man. Couldn't get past that, so didn't want to know the rest.

I could not put this book down! It reads like a thriller even though we already know the outcome. The author's introspection is especially powerful.

This is a terrific book that describes the amusing peccadilloes of its subject, the kindness of his marks, the brutality of his murders, the identity of his victims, and the literary and cinematic referents that drove his life, all interspersed with the insightful introspection and quality writing of one of his dupes, the author.
