Zodiac by Robert Graysmith 


Later [33rd] printing.

A near mint and still unread copy of this true crime classic.  Very faint water stain along cover's lower spine.  Reads as new. 

The true crime classic that inspired David Fincher's masterpiece "Zodiac" -- * trivia - the film's screenplay was co-written by David Fincher and author Robert Graysmith.

A sexual sadist, he took pleasure in torture and murder. His first victims were a teenage couple, stalked and shot dead in a lovers' lane. After another slaying, he sent his first mocking note to authorities, promising he would kill more.
The official tally of his victims was six. He claimed thirty-seven dead. The real toll may have reached fifty.

Robert Graysmith was on staff at the The San Francisco Chronicle in 1968 when Zodiac first struck, triggering in the resolute reporter an unrelenting obsession with seeing the hooded killer brought to justice. In this gripping account of Zodiac's eleven-month reign of terror, Graysmith reveals hundreds of facts previously unreleased, including the complete text of the killer's letters.
