    Generally the people who discuss this book are either conspiracy nuts who believe the government is spying on them through their cereal or something eually crazy fundamentalist Christians who are eager to prove that Satan is out to get everyone or professional skeptics who have an axe to grind against the former two and a desire to look very smart and very clever on top of itI had read this book back in my high school days but only remembered some bits and pieces from it crazy death cults and serial killers are two subjects I'm very interested inWhat surprised me is that despite the ensuing years of seeing the above three groups fighting over this book Terry's book is actually very lucid and down to earth for the most partWhile his knowledge of 'the occult' is lacking he's one of those people who doesn't really grok that there are plenty of benign groups out there that use Tarot cards and like Crowley and the OTO despite the fact that there are also a bunch of weirdos and cranks his study of the Son of Sam case is in my opinion a perfect example of the ineptness of the police department at digging deeper than just surface level something that has happened time and again including within this book repeatedly The public was terrorized by the 44 Caliber Killer and once they caught Berkowitz who admitted to being the 44 Caliber KillerSon of Sam that was enough for them As long as they had someone to blame it on and as long as the streets were uiet again they didn't really care if it went any deeper although to be fair many cops DID but the brass tended to suelch themAdmittedly Berkowitz was behind the at least a couple of the killings Neither Berkowitz nor Terry try to deny that it would be foolish However the fact remains that the various composite images made by witnesses and surviving victims are radically different was ignored The reports of weird cars in neighbourhoods shortly before the murders was ignored The witness of a woman who saw Berkwotiz wandering around and driving around shortly before another shooting thereby reuiring that Berkowitz be The Flash in order to wander around drive around AND get back in time to fire shots at the victim was ignored Even the fact that the various letters from The Son of Sam obviously didn't come from the same person was ignoredTerry draws a line from Berkowitz to alleged friends of his named the Carrs who were involved in some sort of cult and were murdered shortly after the Son of Sam murders all the way to places as far flung as North Dakota Los Angeles and Houston as well as Long Island New YorkWhile ordinarily people react negatively to so called conspiracy theories the men who flew the planes into the WTC were part of both a cult and members of a conspiracy Conspiracy theory has been degraded to simply being a buzzword associated with people who believe that UFOs killed JFK and similar stuff despite the fact that any theory that links three or people together is uite frankly a conspiracy theoryDespite the bad rap the book gets from the skeptics and the embracing of it by crazy fundies and crazy tin foil hatters alike Terry doesn't really focus hugely on so called cults While he refers to some such as the notorious Process the so called Chingons a cult centered around Yonkers etc the book is about dope than the Devil and if any cult is truly involved it would appear to involve Scientology so than SatanDrug deals gone bad kinky homosexual murders crazy cults porn and dope addicted vaudeville producers music celebrities and low level pushers are all caught up in the net that Terry uncoversWhile it's tempting to write this off as yes a conspiracy theory the fact remains that it is entirely possible that groups with stations across the country are involved in drug smuggling and dealing and Terry suggests motives behind the Tate Labianca murders that make far sense than the Beatles told me to do it theory of Vincent Bugliosi to be fair Bugliosi was stressed for time and had to get a conviction on Manson he had plenty of other theories some of which support Terry's but the police's refusal to look beneath the surface of a crazy story like Burkowitz's dog hindered much of itIf nothing else it's an intriguing thought I for one based on personal research I've done on cults in So Cal tend to think Terry is on to something whether his entire hypothesis is true or false but even if just some of it is true a whole lot of sickos need to be headed to jail although most of them are probably long since murdered anywayA lot of the book is speculative while Terry is right to protect his sources often his 'sources' are the only ones with any worthwhile info It is entirely possible that they were mistaken or lying or any number of things although Terry does regularly verify their claims against information that he as an investigator tracks downMy biggest ualm with this book is that it was written in the mid 80s and some of the figures such as Manson II aka Willie Metzner are now safely behind bars Unfortunately I don't know if there is a newly updated version of this book or not Considering everything involved I think there should either be a seuel or a very updated version to trace what's been going on since the book finished Internet research has shown that some people such as John Kogut were exonerated through DNA evidence although of course the book written at the time he was confessing to a rape and murder of a teenage girl doesn't talk about this at all

    Re read for 2016 Still one of my favorites this is an amazing piece of investigative journalism by author Maury Terry This is one I have to keep replacing I never get it back whenever anyone borrows it

    Oh the good old days before DNA and real good forensics where one Fire Island obsessed NY reporter could toil away on a single story for decades Where a good juicy serial killer could make the career of a plucky young journalistWhen Terry is not recreating conversations between himself and police himself and District Attorneys or himself and other newspaper men he is retyping prison letters from inside snitches See here is the thing about this Berkowitz did it Alone Because he is a paranoid schizophrenic Probably tormented by his neighbors the Carrs The Carrs where bad dudes one was an active cocaine addict and the other former drug addict turned Scientologist To a paranoid like Berkowitz these two guys were into Satanism and all sorts of other depravity And what was the most depraved thing back in the 1970s? Homosexual bondage sex Mix all that together with a barking dog and you have the platform for uite a delusional systemI am sure the Carrs fucked with Berkie Teased and harassed him since he was a loner creep with obvious mental problems I am also convinced that Berkowitz knew them well enough to create his delusionsThe fact that both Carrs met with particularly messy ends is not surprising either being low level criminals and dullard thugsTerry gets great traction from the Carrs suspicious deaths But really a dug addict who is trying to break into selling drugs getting killed is not really the stuff of Satanic Conspiracies More like the plot of a cheap tv showThe fact that Terry gets traction from the letters articles and other highlighted books that Berkowitz mails around the country to various DAs is a bit naive I mean letter writing and strange mail was one of Berkowitz's Son Of Sam calling cards The fact he continued after arrest seems to prove his culpability than anything else Further the sending of articles and other texts to law enforcement continued to support Berkowitz's paranoid delusions showing others all the evidence that connects the scrambled world view of his mind Terry uses Berkowitz's interviews as proof I found the interviews to be entirely made up of leading uestions and Berkowitz playing a terribly obvious game of GO FISH His refusal to answer reads as ignorance and entertainment on his behalf not scared hintsTo even address the informant letters from Vinny is to admit that a prisoner who has a reporter on the hook someone who will actively visit him who will actively write him back is a prisoner with a lot of power They are bored beyond words so this sort of entertainment is invaluable In addition anything Vinny overheard any crime he could simply feed to Terry and attribute it to Berkowitz Which I think happened a lotPoor Maury Terry I am sure he misses the disco nights on Fire Island as well as the timely fascination of the Son of Sam case

    One of the most underrated books of our time The Ultimate Evil is a can't turn these GD pages fast enough romp through the most convoluted murder mystery of our time Was the Son of Sam merely a cover up for one of the most devious Satanic cults in the world? After reading Maury's long really long tale I'd say maybe?

    Interesting and entertaining but at least some of what is put out and theorized here is bullshit People just love their spooky stories by the campfire

    This is very creepy to read when you are alone I thought this was an excellent investigative book into the multiple killings in New York City in the late 70's by the 44 Cabiber Killer or the Son of Sam killer s Too much evidence suggests that this was in no way a one man job Even the cops investigating this case at the time always thought it was than one killer Every crime scene had a different description of the shootershooters The only reason this was all pinned on David Berkowitz is convenience the common theme in the American “Justice System” People were going to lose their jobs over this case The city was losing its mind with fear How could all of the NYPD and FBI not be able to locate the killer? There was than one killer Check the evidence Great book and there is than enough reasonable doubt and just flat out ignored evidence to re open this case

  8. says:

    I've loaned this one out a few times and never seem to get it back One of great cult books of all time The dog didn't do it And Berkowitz probably only did some of it Read it and see The book drips purple prose which no doubt turns off some and gives skeptics ammunition to shout down Terry's theories And yet I wouldn't want it written any other way Terry raises some points that are hard to ignore The main one being that there were others involved with the killings

    I have finally finished this book It was fascinating I ended up liking it so much that I looked for the book that he was supposedly working on about the Lisa Steinberg murder; however it looks like this was the only book he has written This book was really scary and it really makes you wonder about unsolved murders and missing people
