Unmasked: My Life Solving America's Cold Cases by Paul Holes


Book: Unmasked: My Life Solving America's Cold Cases

Author: Paul Holes

Release date (if applicable): April 26, 2022

Synopsis: A look into the life and crime solving of Paul Holes. Paul Holes gives readers personal insight to his life during the craziest time in his career...the identification of the Golden State Killer. 

My rating: 4 Stars

My opinion: In the early 2000's, we had Detective Joe Kenda. In the mid 2000's, we have Paul Holes. This man's work is absolutely fascinating. I simply cannot get enough of Paul Holes and seek out anything he is appearing on, hosting or writing. 

If I was a newbie to Paul , this book would have been an EASY 10/5 Star read for me, but alas, I'm not. As a result, the better chunk of what this book contained, I have already read, listened to or watched in the various television shows, podcasts or other works by Paul. 

For example, if you subscribe to Audible, Paul has a number of podcasts on several of the cases written in this book free to subscribers. I have listened to each and every one of them and absorbed with much gusto. 

Like Joe Kenda's books, I really enjoyed learning more about the person Paul Holes is privately versus the crimes he was involved in solving. So, I truly believe that is what Paul Holes groupees will walk away with. In other words, there is something for every Paul Holes fan in this book.
