Read full description of the books:
Talk about a pointless book with a completely deceptive cover--this is it. The cover makes it seem like it is about the murder of the body double for Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO by a Los Angeles serial killer. So, it follows the woman's career as a pin-up model/nudist in exhaustive, stretch out the story as much as possible to make it seem longer--this means repeating moments over and over and it follows the serial killer in similar fashion. Then the guy is caught AND he didn't kill the woman on the cover! He had nothing to do with her, in fact she wasn't even murdered! What a sham.
The book is horribly written and organized. Page after page about how Marli Renfro didn't mind taking her clothes off because she was a nudist, her great body and what it was like for her shooting on the set of PSYCHO. We're talking 75 pages of the various ways Hitchcock filmed Renfro nude in the shower for that famous scene. Overkill and dull. Graysmith evidently had a bunch of Renfro's pin-up magazines growing up because he was letting a lot of that out on the page. The frustrating thing is there is NO real connection between Renfro and the profiled serial killer other than the fact he had a weird mother complex ala the movie. That still doesn't make a connection between the two. Just plane irritating and a waste of time.
