no kill no thrill

starts off well with self professed “sexist slob” leonard lake expounding on his philosophy - a monologue for the benefit of a home video tape - but then, with expectations raised high, the rest of the book becomes an unfulfilling bore - there’s NO details of the actual murders (!) - barely even a mention of torture - what you do get is a parade of females who lake tried to charm the bras off for photo album souvenirs - and assorted complete humdrum life stories of anyone who had any remote connection with lake and/or ng - always stopping abruptly at “and then he disappeared never to be heard from again” dot dot dot - we’re left to presume killed by lake and ng - but he might just as well have jumped in a lake - who knows? - this book certainly won’t tell you - second half of the book devoted to ng’s trial, even less titillating (i was reading but the words were no longer particularly sinking in) - okay, it seems maybe nothing at all is known of the murders (not even a hazard guess here offered as to motive) but I’d have preferred not to have read over 400 pages (promising to be “the terrifying true story”) to discover that - if you’ve no information and no insights, at least indulge in some tantalising speculation - it’s standard for true crime books - bah!, give me back the two weeks wasted reading this
