I am proud to announce that, The Early Years Part II (The 1930s)-The Further Serial Crimes of George Hill Hodel M.D. has just been released and is available for purchase effective TODAY. (As in Part I the purchase includes a downloadable 436-page text complete with photos and graphics.)
Once again, the narrator, Malcolm Hillgartner has executed a masterful reading of the text as a follow-up to his narration of Part I (The 1920s).
This is the fourth audiobook that Malcolm has narrated for me.
The three earlier volumes include: (1) Most Evil: Avenger, Zodiac, and the Further Serial Murders of Dr. George Hill Hodel (Dutton 2009); (2) Most Evil II: Presenting the Follow-up Investigation and Decryption of the 1970 Zodiac Cipher in which the San Francisco Serial Killer Reveals His True Identity (Rare Bird Books 2015); (3) The Early Years Part I (The 1920s)-The Further Serial Crimes of George Hill Hodel M.D. (Thoughtprint Press (2021)

Steve, Hillgartner’s voice definitely compelling👍! Have recommended these audiobooks to both my ophthalmologists (one being daughter Grace) since they both have drives during their work weeks in AZ & TX. Relating funny comments from Grace as I spoke about this yesterday w/her. Keep in mind Grace just over a bout of Covid so a little testy: “Mother, I have enjoyed your recommendation & listening to ‘Concert for George’ as I drive & as I rested here at home, beautiful! But I see you are still in the ‘murder & mayhem’ mode!! Have you recommended George’s music to your friend Hodel? Be happy Mom!! Will see my local Opthalm. in couple of months & get her opinions! But did get some good news from Grace’s son Cole as he recoups from a foot injury keeping him out of track racing this season☹️. He has found studying for his LSAT which he will take this summer
very gratifying & interesting…… Jake Brigance lives!!😃
Again, Malcolm Hillgartner’s voice was made for your books!👌😎🌵
She has it right. “Concert for Hodel” is most certainly an opera seria in eight acts.
Yes, Malcolm was the perfect choice for a narrator. He really gets it and has also done a great job on Most Evil I and Most Evil II.
Oh, you cannot take the HOLLYWOOD out of we Californians!👍 😉🌵
