Format: Paperback
an exhaustive piece of investigative journalism that puts forward a strong case that berkowitz was not the only triggerman in the son of sam slayings, that in fact they were part of a coast to coast conspiracy. Terry manages to expose a satanic network of murder, porn, drugs and prostitution. Tracing the more satanic aspects of the case, he takes on a fly drive tour of hell that begins in the disco fuelled new york of the seventies to the psychadelic savagery of death valley '69. some of the links maybe a little tenous but terry uncovers enough evidence to make you squirm. the book answers many questions about both cases, the discrepancies surrounding the descriptions of the .44 cal killer given by survivors, the links between berkovitz, manson and the process church of the final judgement and other anomalies. the book is a well written tour de force that both entertains and horrifies

My Boss, said that when he read this book, he had to leave it outside the room when he slept, it chilled him that much.
And i concur, this is a very, very, dark book, hard to read, but worth the effort, i don't think that 'enjoy' is the right word for this book,The Ultimate Evil
but eye opening, dark, sinister and true......

Format: Paperback
I think I have read "The Ultimate Evil" at least four times now and each time it frightens me. Maury Terry has dedicated his life to investigating cults and evil in America. His findings are disturbing and gripping and beg us to ask the question, "Who needs fiction?" - real life is scary enough!
Anyone who has heard of the "Son of Sam" should definitely start reading - you may get a few shocks. The fact that David Berkowitz is in jail may not be enough reason for us to sleep soundly in our beds at night.
Due to its subject matter this book can sometimes make for heavy reading but I advise you to stick with it.
Get ready to sleep with the light on and make sure you've locked your doors and windows!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stephen Reid on 13 Jun 2011
Format: Paperback
The appearance of this book (thick-as-a-brick paperback format, fiery cross cover, and perhaps even the title) might make the prospective reader think they are buying a scary fictional chiller in the mode of Stephen King or Dean Koontz. However with the greatest of respect to these two gentlemen, this book is even more frightening than anything they could conjure up from their dark and fertile imaginations. Maury Terry maintains - with much compelling evidence - that this book is all true. If this is indeed the case then forget fictional terrors - the real stuff starts here.
This is a gripping and at times disturbing read - the image of shadowy Satanic hitmen slipping unassailed through various levels of American culture/subculture is particularly unsettling. The opening chapter detailing the horrific murder of newly-wed Christian evangelist Arlis Perry is truly bone-chilling. The links between the Manson family and the Process church wackos are the stuff of nightmares. On a more prosaic level the case for there being more than one "Son of Sam" killer is expanded upon as if it were courtroom evidence presented by an expert witness. I highly recommend this book.

A great piece of detective work with unsettling conclusions if its on the money. Written really well and quite hard to put down when you get into the book. Dark forces at play in the world?? No question, but is there really a satanic underground that spans so wide and digs so deep into our society..scary stuff not for the feint of heart this one. Particularly impressed with the authors honesty and lack of bias, he really does seem to follow the evidence regardless.
