The other reviews are correct... this book could have been a LOT shorter. The same information was repeated again and again. We GET it, Robert Graysmith.

Truth is, everybody wanted Arthur Leigh Allen to be the Zodiac, including Allen himself. But he probably wasn't. Sure, there were a lot of coincidences that make Allen look like a good match for the killer, but the DNA didn't match.

Ugh. Long and repetitive. Obsessive. Don't read this. Read Graysmith's other Zodiac book. That one is excellent. ( )

This is Robert Graysmith's second book about The Zodiac killer.

Author Robert Graysmith was on the staff of the San francisco Chronicle when the hooded killer's first letter arived.After 8 years of research Graymsith revealed 100 of facts never before released.. and his own theory of the Zodiac's true identity but they did not caught him.


Now 19 years after Zodiac was published it seems they have finally caught him.
Zodiac Unmasked!!
(I have just read Zodiac and can't wait to read this one.

Update January 23st 2008
It has been a long time since I read this book but I recall I was very disappointed by this book. It promised answers but in honesty it were just guesses. Lots of repetition.

Zodiac taught me that serial killers are either paranoid schizophrenics that have voices telling them to kill or they’re sociopaths. There was a lot of careful research done for this book, and I can appreciate that. I think the Zodiac is a fascinating example of a serial killer, but you can't help but cringe when you're reading some of the descriptions of the murders. It’s definitely creepy that a killer that sadistic and psychotic was never caught. ( )

Zodiac Unmasked illustrated Graysmith’s findings from his personal investigation of the Zodiac killings that picked up where he left off with his first book, just called Zodiac. It's about the Zodiac killings that happened in the Bay Area back in the late 60's and early 70's. In the first book, he did find a particular person which he concluded as his main suspect. He said that he felt that the police and other investigators looking at the case had pretty much narrowed it down to a particular person; but he gave this person a pseudonym so when Zodiac Unmasked came out, he actually named this person, and the primary suspect is Arthur Lee Allen, who has since passed away. He expands on Allen’s life previous to the killings and the reasoning behind his suspicions. I was interested in this book after seeing the Zodiac film and would highly recommend reading this if you are interested in crime and mystery.

After seeing Zodiac in theatres in early '07 (and how is it this fascinating film did not garner an academy award nomination?) I had high expectations of what I figured would be an equally fascinating, compelling read. Big disappointment. While the movie flows and builds toward a suspenseful conclusion, Zodiac Unmasked regresses to most of the material in its precursor, Zodiac, making the narrative of the sequel choppy and frustratingly redundant. Had I not read Zodiac first, perhaps I would have found the sequel more compelling, but there simply was not a whole lot of new information to glean from Unmasked that I didn't already know from either the first book or the first-rate film. And while I admire (sort of) the amount of misanthropic, obsessional research that went into the writing of the book, I don't admire the plain, drab writing style. This story could have been a true crime classic in the hands of a skilled writer. I can heartily recommend the film, but I'm sorry to say the books leave a lot -- namely, good writing -- to be desired. ( )
