Description

An explosive and historic book of true crime and an emotionally powerful and revelatory memoir of a man whose ten-year search for his biological father leads to a chilling discovery: His father is one of the most notorious-and still at large-serial killers in America

“I promise that you’ve never read anything like The Most Dangerous Animal of All. Mesmerizing from the first page, the story includes a shattering surprise that will sear itself in your memory. Be prepared to read non-stop; this really is a book you won’t be able to put down.”  —Jeff Guinn, author of Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson

Soon after his birthmother contacted him for the first time at the age of thirty-nine, adoptee Gary L. Stewart decided to search for his biological father. It was a quest that would lead him to a horrifying truth and force him to reconsider everything he thought he knew about himself and his world.

Written with award-winning author and journalist Susan D. Mustafa, The Most Dangerous Animal of All tells the story of Stewart’s decade-long hunt for his father following a complex trail of startling twists and connections. Combing through government records and news reports and through conversations with his father’s relatives and friends, Stewart turns up a host of clues, including forensic evidence, identifying his father as one of the most infamous and still-wanted serial killers in American history.

    Ok now we just need David Fincher to go back and remake this movie haha! What a incredible story. Finally all these yrs later it's solved not by sfpd but by the zodiacs son. Btw this will make for one unbelievable movie!

    I'm satisfied, would like to know about DNA evidence, otherwise pretty compelling. Downside is some long winded spots on god, but then again he's baptist.

    This book is a remarkable piece of work. The author spends most of the time demonstrating why his father was the zodiac killer. In between however he displays the kindness, compassion, intelligence and courage that his father did not have. His thesis that unresolved anger lead to murder is not only plausible but tragically clear. I downloaded the book at about noon, and have done nothing but read it until 6:20pm I recommend it highly, I can't think of a better story or a more compelling presentation.
  • What an awesome book!

    My husband and I watched the movie when it came out about the Zodiac killer. I was born in New Orleans Louisiana in 1969 and raised in Houma. I know you had a wonderful life Gary! This is a must read!!!! Wonderful job creating this book!
  • Where are the finger print and hand writing examples?

    I just finished reading this book and it's compelling. I believe the author has been honest with his findings. I myself was abandoned by my father when I was born so I can understand his motivation to keep digging for answers. It would gave been nice to see pics of the finger prints and hand writing examples, maybe it's not available in an e-book. I think the author makes a big leap with motive. I'm not sure the motive makes that much sense to but if Van was that crazy ten I guess anything is possible. I see all the images have now been uploaded, Wow!!! This evidence is incredible!

    Thoroughly enjoyable, masterfully crafted-"the most dangerous animal of all" by Gary Stewart and Susan Mustafa is very reminiscent of James Ellroy's "My Dark Places". Semi autobiographical with good evidence to back the authors claims, it is a riveting read and not to be missed.
