E ARC provided by EdelweissIn the early 1990s I remember the Unabomber being in the news but I didn t follow the story closely since I had small children and was etting my MLS I hadn t realized what a huge investigation lead to the eventual capture of the perpetrator of so many senseless mail bomb killings This book approaches the investigation from the point of view of Agent Kathy Puckett who joined the UNABOMB task force in 1994 The investigation into
THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO WOULDtype of person who would commit these crimes coupled with the physical and literary evidence used to identify the cuplrit is fascinating There were many people investigating and they are mentioned along with the bits of evidence they contributed This book also discusses the thought process concerning the publishing of the Unabomber s manifesto in the newspaper which ultimately was very helpful Its publication brought forth David Kaczynski the brother of Theodore Kaczynski who thought that the writing was similar to his brother s As the investigation continued Kaczynski s profile seemed to match what Pucket knew about the Unabomber s likely profile would be The book includes the complicated stake out that occurred to finally bring Kaczynski in and discusses what the case meant to the state of investigations The source notes are very complete I m interested to see what other books in this series are in the works Strengths This was very well done While there are lots of details about the nuts and bolts of the investigation and even information about how Puckett struggled as a female investigator at a time where there were few of them the book moves along very uickly and is an excellent length The history of events leading up to the investigation are included and the societal atmosphere when the case became big news is included I have no interest in true crime stories but found this to be an interesting and uick read Weaknesses Since I really enjoyed reading about Puckett s involvement in this it was disappointing that she wasn t involved in his actual arrest but history is historyWhat I really think True crime Wouldn t have been something that interested me in middle school but my students seem to enjoy listening to podcasts about it and are always asking for murder mysteries This is an intriguing nonfiction book that should make them very happy For the record the sole reason I read this was because it s one of only two books in my entire local library system about the Unabomber case the other is David Kaczynski s 2016 book Every Last Tie The Story of the Unabomber and His Family Initially I didn t uite know what to make of it A Unabomber bookfor kids But it was surprisingly well done and didn t dumb things down as much as I expected It does however read like FBI propaganda The FBI are badass defenders of Americans and justice They caught the Unabomber Well no not really They didn t catch Ted Kaczynski his brother and sister in law did And that was after seventeen years of the FBI s failure to do so despite 100 agents working full time on the case and an unprecedented budget for the manhunt Had David not come forward with the letters and essays from Ted it s entirely possible he would have evaded the FBI forever The agents are iven a little too much credit here Especially considering all the leaks and the broken promise to keep David and his wife s involvement from the press I also didn t uite like how
