When veteran LAPD homicide detective Steve Hodel discovered that his own late father, Dr. George Hill Hodel, was the killer in the infamous Black Dahlia murder case, he wrote the best seller Black Dahlia Avenger, a book that convinced even the L.A. County Deputy District Attorney that George Hodel was responsible for Elizabeth Short's gruesome death.

As a veteran police investigator, Steve Hodel's instincts told him that if his father was capable of that level of cruelty, it probably didn't begin or end with the Black Dahlia. Steve Hodel has devoted his life to examining the evidence of his father's fascinating and mysterious life, and shocking new revelations that have come to light in the last five years are the subject of Most Evil.

If Steve Hodel's research is correct, Dr. George Hill Hodel was among the most prolific serial killers in history, beginning as a young man and continuing to kill throughout his long life of 91 years. Among his crimes are dozens of unsolved murder cases stretching back 60 years.

Most Evil compiles an astonishing amount of never-before-seen visual, circumstantial, and forensic evidence to prove Hodel's case. This relentless, compelling, and persuasive investigation will revolutionize the way we think about some of the most intriguing, brutal, unsolved, and previously unconnected murders in American history - and it may change our understanding of serial killers altogether.

Listener Opinions

    " Hodel's thesis in his previous book was that his father was the Black Dahlia killer. In this book, he accuses his father of being a lifelong serial killer with victims in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Manila. Hodel marshals plenty of evidence, but in analyzing it, much of it takes interpretation and a will to believe instead of speaking for itself. "

    " My husband heard a radio interview with Steven Hodel on NPR talking about this book about his father. I'm not usually willing to take the time to read about horrible crimes, but something drew me into this story. It's not often that a detective discovers that the perpetrator in some of the most heinous unsolved crimes of all time is the same person- that they are all linked together- and that that person is his father! Absolutely amazing. A bit gory, but the author does not sensationalize the crimes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 1/21/2014

    " Again strong circumstantial evidence pointing to George Hodel. Compelling once you reach the end. If you are familiar with the Zodiac case it may seem far-fetched at first, but Steve ties it all together in the end. My biggest beef is that he claims Zodiac killed his victims at random. Not likely in my book. "

    " It's okay, but I'm not convinced. Needs some info to really back up what he says, especially about Elizabeth Short going to Chicago to investigate Suzanne Degnan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 1/15/2014

    " What I learned...That George Hill Hodel was a sick man and the Zodiac killer among other murders. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Lee | 1/9/2014

    " Very convincing evidence that his dad was the Black Dahlia Avenger and the Lipstick Killer, but the Zodiac killings are a stretch. At least tie him to being in the cities first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat Reed | 12/27/2013

    " Pretty good for a true crime fanatic like me! "

    " Entertaining, but very far from a good research book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mmac19 | 8/10/2013

    " Could not put this book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paige | 8/5/2013

    " A frightening book. Having just finished it, I'm still digesting some of Hodel's theories. It's hard to say, "Yes, I completely believe in his father's guilt" since as Hodel explains his evidence is circumstantial. That being said, it does feel like the author is onto something. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/29/2013

    " This is a well-written, thoughtful analysis of circumstantial evidence leading to the conclusion that Steve Hodel's father was a horrific serial murderer. I hope the DNA evidence puts an end to the search. It is unbelievable how evil some people can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 5/22/2013

    " Interesting evidence! Believable! I would recommend this FOR SURE to all true crime fans!! Great book and author! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Lane | 2/10/2012

    " Some of the evidence goes way out there to make connections, but you read it and can't help but wonder if the pieces fit. After reading it I imagine it would be a good read to find out why some of this evidence hasn't been followed up on. "

    " Amazing read.Made a believer out of me. "

    " Barf. I loathed this book. NOT a good book club book. (I definitely skipped book club so I could skip the discussion on this one.) "
