Unlike all of his other books I’ve read/reviewed, this has been the first time it has triggered a song I loved to listen to back around November 1980. However it wasn’t the song itself but a parody of it which fits the serial killer Mr Rosewood discusses in this book, Patrick Kearney.
The song I got on my mind here is Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again.”
He just can’t wait to get on the road againThe life of killing young boys is like music to his hears
And he just can’t wait to get on the road again
On the road againGoing places that he’s seldom been
Killing young boys no one is ever see again
This depraved individual, Patrick Kearney, would pick up young, unsuspecting boys hitchhiking on the California freeways; then kill them so he could garner some sexual satisfaction, and then dismembering their bodies prior to disposing of the remains.
One of the things which enabled him to carry out these horrific murder is the personae which he projected, a simple looking guy who was incapable of harming a fly.
For giving his readers an insightful look into the psyche of another serial killer I’ve given this endeavor 5 STARS.
