In the United States, people tend to compare the case of the Zodiac killer to the famous London case of Jack the Ripper. In the state of California in the 1970ies, a mysterious killer creates a sense of panic amongst the population as he goes on killing randomly, mostly young couples. Not satisfied with only executing his victims, the serial killer plays a disturbing cat and mouse game, claiming his bloody deeds by provocative and coded messages sent to the press.
For the last 50 years, only one of his codes has been decrypted while three others have resisted all attempts from the FBI’s code breakers. Until today, the killer’s identity remains unknown…
Christmas, 2020. Fayçal Ziraoui, a young graduate from France’s elite university École Polytechnique has too much free time during the holidays. Having heard of the case of the Zodiac killer, he starts reading up on the subject and gets passionate about it. In only a few days, working from his kitchen table, he is able to decipher the three last messages, thus finally establishing the identity of a serial killer that has fascinated and terrified the United States of America for half a century.
This brilliant non-fiction narrative adroitly going back and forth between the tension ridden state of California of the 1970ies and a present day inquiry conducted by a brilliant mind, is an enthralling page-turner and a deep dive into one of the most famous cold cases of all times.
