E-Books The Sleeping Lady: The Trailside Murders Above the Golden Gate This is a book about the infamous Trailside Killer, who terrorized Pt. Reyes and Mt. Tamalpais(both in Marin County, north of San Francisco) and Santa Cruz in the late 70's amd early 80's. The same author wrote a book about the Zodiac Killer, another Bay Area serial killer. This book jumps right into it and moves quickly along. As another reviewer noted for himself, I finished this quickly, in about 3 days.It's hard for me to rave and glow about a non-fiction book like this. The author has simply organized and relayed a bunch of material about the killings and killer. In fact, that goes to one of my main complaints - sometimes there is too much detail. When the author references some bank account, he footnotes the account number. He mentions some auto, and footnotes the VIN. Gack. I didn't seem to have as much troible with his writing as others have noted, but again, he's just reiterating, not really creating.There is a glaring error early in the book when he mentions Charles Whitman, a mass murderer from the 60's. But he committed his crime in 1966(not 1960), and he did it from the clock tower and observation deck at the University of Texas, not a water cooler. Inexcusable..

The best Ebook The Sleeping Lady: The Trailside Murders Above the Golden Gate I put off reading this book because one of the victims was murdered in Henry Cowell Redwoods, on one of my favorite trails (leading up to the observation deck from where you can see the whole Monterey Bay and on a clear day it is SPECTACULAR). Actually, that's only part of the reason: the young woman was someone I knew - Ellen Hansen's mother was a friend of mine at UC Davis, and her pain was just something I've never forgotten. What a woman, what strength, and what a change it made in my feelings about the death penalty. It should not MATTER that one of the trailside killer's victims was someone I knew - I had been opposed to the death penalty forever, and yet when this happened, and David Carpenter was caught and tried, my overall reaction was "I want this guy to FRY." The story is well told, and it totally creeped me out, and now that I know the EXACT spot on the trail where it happened, I don't think I can ever hike there again.I remember Marilyn telling me about Ellen's reaction when the guy said he was going to rape her: basically she said like HELL you are and resisted. And she died. Her boyfriend was with her, was also shot, and left for dead. Well, guess what? he lived and testified against the bastard who terrorized Northern CA for a time a few decades ago. A bizarre, scary, frightening story. It still gives me nightmares. I lost touch with Marilyn, but wherever she is, I hope she has found peace. I cried for her and Ellen all over again when I read this, so clearly the author did his job...

  2. I read this book over the last few days and was pretty riveted by it all the way through Graysmith s author of Zodiac writing is not particularly great, and there are some awkward paragraphs I had to reread a couple of times before they made sense, but the research and pace at which the book moves is impressive I don t usually finish 400 page books in a few days I was a baby in Marin County when the Trailside Killer was raping and murdering women on Mt Tamalpais The Sleeping Lady , Pt Reyes, and [...]

  4. Just discovered I did write a sort of review ahum I am a tad embarrassed but find them funny as well I did not correct the spelling.Copied from bookcrossing on Wednesday, May 26, 2004This book has not been rated Hi pam How are you Long time no traded books Well I finally started this book You know what I did I made a list of all my TBR books, I received by others, and when i received them, so I know which books have been waiting for the longest This one was received on the 11th of march,and next [...]


  5. Robert Graysmith takes great pains to detail the events in David Carpenter s life and role as a serial killer Having had a career in law enforcement, I appreciate his thoroughness and attention to detail and that is what I was looking for not entertainment I have a personal connection to this particular case.If you re looking for a novel and story similar to his work in Zodiac, you may be disappointed Admittedly the story of the Zodiac holds appeal as it is unsolved and received far publicity [...]



  6. Not very well written but intriguing I read this because I grew up outside of San Francisco and have hiked Mt Tam and some of the other places mentioned Very creepy.


  7. I usually enjoy true crime, but this one was far too disjointed to follow with any logic.As of late 2010, David Carpenter remains on Death Row in California.
