Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest, review by Charlie Stella

Writer and blogger Charlie Stella reviews and recommends Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest 

“... a well documented tale of not only the killer [Ion Rimaru], his family, and the victims, it also serves as a condemnation of the aftereffects of years of communist rule [...] Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest is a fine glimpse into the mind of a notorious serial killer and an intriguing read.
