Paul Holes is an American former cold-case investigator for the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office. Holes is known for his contributions to solving the Golden State Killer case using advanced methods of identifying the killer with DNA and genealogy technology. Since retiring in March 2018, Holes has contributed to books, television, and podcasts about the Golden State Killer and true crime.



While most of the book is about Holes' career, his involvement in catching serial killers, rapists, and his work on the Golden State Killer case, he also includes his personal life here and discusses the toll his work took on his relationships.

If you have an interest in true crime, you know Holes has become an in-demand speaker and podcaster with an amazing memory for facts. Here he goes over his methods of processing a crime scene with an attention to detail and overlooked clues.

It's hard for me to not give a memoir 5 stars, but I think that having read a few books by John Douglas, the writing style is what brings this down a star.

I have admired Paul Holes since reading I'll Be Gone In The Dark right after the capture of the GSK, and the way he remembered Michelle McNamara in this was very, very sweet, I think she would have liked that.

I feel like the first half of this was a little slow, and then the second half was so fast paced it felt like sprinting to the end of a marathon. This is why I came up with 4 stars. Definitely worth a read though!… (mais)

A very interesting inside look at what it’s like to be a cold case investigator and forensic specialist on notable crimes such as the Laci Peterson and Jaycee Dugard cases, and identifying The Golden State Killer. Paul Holes presents an honest and humble snapshot of his life, warts and all. I was amazed at how much he sacrificed of his own life in order to do the job - and how it seems not to have been a choice but something he was driven/born to do. True crime enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the details and the mysteries (and miseries) contained within.… (mais)

I like reading true crime books. What I really loved about this book seeing the various crimes featured in this book from Paul's perspective. The way that he assessed each case with his scientific and analytical mind was very intriguing. I think a lot like him and thought about pursuing forensic science as a career.

So many true crime books focus on the crimes and not so much on the details on how the cases are solved. Getting to see this side of things was interesting. I flew through this book as I could not read it fast enough. It must not have been easy to share personal details about your personal life but Paul did. With these insights, into his life, it brought me closer to him as a person. Thank goodness for people like Paul who dedicate their lives to solving the "cold" cases, so that the victims get justice. Fans of true crime books will want to pick up a copy of this book to read for themselves.… (mais)
