    Dear Steve, I’ve been reading your latest book, Most Evil II, and I think you have really nailed it, closed the Zodiac case, with Dr. Hodel’s or Zodiac’s “signature” in the Halloween card and his other notes to the police and newspapers. I was wondering, how did you come to the conclusion that your father had committed suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills? Was it from the “last will notes” where he instructed his last wife to burn or destroy all of his effects and papers or some other source? Thank you and keep up the good work. Best wishes always and so sorry to hear about Tamar’s death. Kathy

      Kathy G: Source was June. She informed me he had been writing her prescriptions for Seconal for a year and saved them up and was planning to take his life in 1998. Then he got better and held off, but then deteriorated again by the spring of 1999 and took the pills. She found the note AFTER his death which mostly was his talking points to her on why it was time to take his life. But, because he improved he never had the conversation with her. They had both approached me the year prior asking my thoughts on euthanasia. So, he was clearly researching it at least a year before taking the pills.

    Dear Steve,
    Hi! Hope that you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for clearing that up. Most Evil II is a really good book as all of your books have been. I was just amazed about the “signature” on the Halloween card. Just looking at the many examples of the handwriting it really looks like your father’s handwriting. As you have said many times, your father never did anything without a purpose in mind and often times he would be several (or more) chess moves ahead of everyone else. Keep up the good work! Best wishes, Kathy

    Hi Steve ,
    Didn’t know you had more books–am looking forward to reading Avenger 2. Steve, did you ever have contact with June again? I remember after your first book you said you didn’t know her whereabouts–has it remained that way? Thanks, Jilie

      Hi Julie: Yes, then there is Most Evil and the just published Most Evil II.
      Haven’t had contact with June since my long telephone conversation in January 2002. Don’t know if she is living in San Francisco or returned to Japan? Zero contact since BDA was first published.
