The Monster of Florence A True StoryWas I think this is a story that needs to be read because there are so many important aspects to the book In fact the sole reason you should read it is that Hannibal Lecter was based on il Mostro di Firenze A brief note about who The Monster of Florence was view spoilerI find it hard to form an opinion about who the killer was in the book for the same reason Serial resented We don t know enough of the evidence that was collected to form an educated guess The fact that the Undisclosed Love Letters podcast is bringing forth insurmountable evidence against therosecutors and investigators of Adnan s case rove that we never knew the whole story But this is a book review not A SERIAL REVIEW HOWEVER I DO Serial review However I do Antonio Vinci is uneuivocally il Mostro di Firenze as it makes the most logical sense I tend to be left brained about these types of things and love a good ending to a good serial killer mystery In fact when I die I will ask God himself to tell me who Jack the Ripper was who the Zodiac Killer was and now who The Monster of Florence was because despite my unwavering beliefs they still aren t 100% hide spoiler Dolci colline di sangue That s a corruption of an Italian hrase about the rolling hills of Florence it means Rolling hills of blood It s also the title of an Italian version of this book and robably a better oneThis book details the investigation into a series of murders that began in 1968 and finally ended in 1985 16 eople were shot to death in the hills surrounding Florence Italy during that time All the victims were killed with th From the late 1960 s to the 1980 s a serial killer sporadically stalked the countryside around Florence murdering young couples and mutilating the female victims Victims of the monster of Florence Over the years numerous men became suspects many were jailed and some were ut on trial To this day however the true killer dubbed the monster of Florence has not been identified Sketch of the monster of Florence Douglas Preston an author of crime novels moved to Florence with his family to write a novel Once there he decided to write a non fiction book about the monster in collaboration with Mario Spezi a journalist who had been writing about the subject for years The result is this book a fascinating tale about both the serial killer and the culture around Florence at the timeDouglas Preston Mario SpeziApparently a major recreational activity among the general ublic in Florence at least the male half was spying on young couples making love in cars This activity included staking out the best spots to watch and even aying off the regulars To Snag Their Places snag their laces course this is very creepyOther arts of the story depict the macho culture in Italy in which some men mistreated starved and beat their wivesand even murdered them often with few conseuencesAccording to Preston there are robably many reasons the monster of Florence wasn t ca.

Douglas Preston â 1 REVIEW

A good true crime story that shows how really terribly wrong an investigation can go when an idiot is ut in charge of it If anything Preston was too nice in describing the Italian justice system Recommended to true crime lovers I am stunned by how much I thoroughly enjoyed this book Serial Podcast invoked an old and underlying interest in me that has now become an obsession unsolved mysteries It is a morbid confession to say how much I enjoy reading about serial killers and spooky mysteries because not only are serial killers the most disappointed and tortured souls to walk the Earth they usually torment and torture their victims leaving a The Ulfric's Mate path of destruction in their wake However their tragic tales sure do tell one hell of a story This book is so frustrating that it leaves you thinking a few things you may have never thought before For one Irobably won t travel to Florence despite the fact that I am a historian and Florence is the literal birthplace of the Italian Renaissance no big deal The same warped minds that turned a legitimate investigation into a witch hunt of the occult also brought you the international trial of the century Amanda Knox Yes folks when you read about how badly these seemly intelligent men fell so far down the rabbit hole into fantasy land with the biggest crime in modern Italian history only to be held up on charges of Alans Letters planting evidence and false information you really begin to doubt the Amanda Knox case in general I am now even intrigued to read about that case simply because every time these two dimwits investigate a highrofile murder they try to work devil worshiping and Medieval satanic cults into the narrative Those two guys are like the bestWhile it is so maddening to see what Giuttari and Mignini have done to the case of the Monster that is only a brief What's Your Body Telling You?: Listening to Your Body's Signals to Stop Anxiety, Erase Self-Doubt and Achieve True Wellness part of the book The first half walks you through the crimes and specific evidence important to the narrative of the crimes In fact I was freaking myself out so much I had tout the book down for a few days This book is stunning in it s storytelling and the ability it has to draw you into it s web and the ability it has to draw you into it s web lies clues and false confessions I loved how much I learned from this book in general mostly about Sardinian culture and this weird gang they brought into Italy from their secluded island It s like a oor man s version of the mafia and I found it gross and uniue This is investigative journalism at it s best and a highly recommended read for folks who enjoy raveling mysteries and true crime This book is non fiction but reads like a brilliantly woven novel of fiction It is of course too wild and outlandish to be fiction and can a brilliantly woven novel of fiction It is of course too wild and outlandish to be fiction and can be believed as fact The issue alone of two respected men of the Italian ublic ministry heading advice from a woman who runs a conspiracy theory website is so outlandish that I still don t believe she ended up being a key witnessbut heyI guess she.
