Reviews

"The foreword promises exclusive information and delivers. Through prodigious research, Sullivan sniffs out small details, like overlooked gas station receipts, to meticulously define the time line of Bundy's killing spree. [He] also attempts to offer, when possible, well-rounded views of the forgotten women who were victims, sharing snapshots of their lives and personalities. Precise and fast-paced, this is a worthwhile addition to the existing Bundy canon."–BooklistReviews of the first edition: "Despite the multitude of books about Bundy, The Bundy Murders offers fresh material and ideas about Bundy's predatory movements.
