Description

Investigates the bizarre 1978 murder of the popular television star, the shocking orgies of his last days

Investigates the bizarre 1978 murder of the popular television star, the shocking orgies of his last days. In his opening chapters, leading up to Bob Crane's murder, Graysmith retells every date and sexual activity the star engaged in-whether or not they had anything to do with his death. Going by what we have here, much of Graysmith's superfine detail is superfluous as evidence, though it does render the victim's character.

Book about the murder of TV and movie actor Bob Crane, best known for his longtime role in the TV series "Hogan's .

He was found dead in 1978 in Arizona, bludgeoned to death in his apartment, while appearing in a several-week run of dinner theater. Whilst Robert Graysmith makes a superficial effort into exploring the possible suspects who may have had the motive and means of killing Crane, he settles on one man in particular. And it has to be said he makes quite a compelling case. For me, it's part crime thriller/part character study.

I became interested in Bob Crane this past year. This book is good for the details of his murder but it was hard to read some details and I wish I hadn't. It has a few errors as per other biographies of Bob Crane's life, but it has very good maps and info about that last week

I enjoyed the story but had to go to the internet to learn the outcome of the eventual arrest; that was disappointing. Otherwise an interesting tale.

Book sucks up to foul-up cops, points the finger at the guy who probably was the killer -- but doesn't cover the trial. Incredible!
